    I guess espn is having sportscenter in 50 states in 50 days this summer and have also added a list of "The Best of each State"

    Mostly sports related but there is topics like, "Favorite personality or historical figure" Interesting to see who has all been born in each state and such.

    I just clicked through to the page for Alabama and saw that they misspelled the capital city's name (Montgomery). Nice job, ESPN!

    They left out Morgan Freeman in Mississippi's famous person voting. Of course, the King Elvis Presley will win out easily.

    Mostly, Mississippi's college sports teams aren't much for winning anything. Every once in awhile one of us will be Alabama or LSU or Auburn or Florida and think we did something. But our $12MM athletic budgets can't hold a candle to $55MM athletic budgets.

    Great, ESPN comes to Oklahoma and they do Sportscenter from the prison rodeo at McAlester.

    I need to move.

    This is just a rip off of SI's 50 states series. Classy ESPN...

    Oh, and it appears that we have a bunch of Aggies voting in the Texas poll...

    Oh my...it seems they made a tiny spelling mistake on that motto:

    "If you seek a pleasant penisula, look about you." :eek:

    When they come to Connecticut they can just stay in Bristol and do the show from there studios. Not much else sports unless they talk about the Huskies or the former Whalers. :rolleyes:

    But then you always have to make a case for Florida.

    1. Buccaneers
    2. Lightning
    3. Dolphins
    4. Jaguars
    5. Marlins
    6. Devil Rays :rolleyes:
    7. Panthers
    8. Magic
    9. Heat

    Then you have FL and FL State, one of the biggest rivalries in college football (don't forget Miami, who holds the record for the longest winning streak in college football), and the Tampa Bay Storm and the Orlando Predators, THE biggest rivalry in the AFL.

    Very nice avatar! I forgot all about Lyle crocodile (or was it Lyle Lyle Crocodile?)

    I vote for MA, too. Not just because I'm from Boston, but because W hates us. Anything that W hates is tops with me!!!

    Well, since I'm from Georgia, I feel the duty to represent.

    State Capital - The Varsity (I think)
    State Motto - "Whaddayahave?" (If you've been to the capital, you'd get it)

    Just a bit of humor in my city. :p

    Good ol' Arkansas and our cardboard racing :rolleyes:. I'm glad I live in the Northwest corner and never have to see this stuff.
