1. Great, great show!
I should buy the DVDs. Aaron Sorkin is a genius.

2. Hell, I thought it was better than "The West Wing."
Okay, maybe not better, but as good.

4. Awesome show!! I missed it when it was on TV but I borrowed
a friend's DVD collection. I was so bummed when I watched the last episode.

Also, I had (have) a huge crush on Sabrina Lloyd.

5. One of the best
Bought the DVD boxed set.

ESPN on Sports Night: http://espn.go.com/page2/s/merron/021112.html


In Reel Life: Dan and Casey write their own scripts.
In Real Life: As do the "SportsCenter" anchors. "You either write it or you have nothing to say," says McKendry.

In Reel Life: There's a critical error in the script. The "s" in "bulging disk" is missing. This could have resulted in an embarrassing on-air mishap, but it's caught in time. ("Eli's Coming")
In Real Life: Pulled right from the "SportsCenter" misplay book. During one broadcast, a TelePrompTer typo dropped the "s" in "disk." As a result, anchor Steve Levy did say, on the air, that a player was out of action with a "bulging dik." Olbermann, co-anchoring, "was crying he was laughing so hard," Rich Eisen told the L.A. Times.

6. Damn, I miss that show
"Who would care to join us in the sport of kings?"

"We're gonna race horses?"

"We're gonna play poker."

"That's not the sport of kings."

"What's the sport of kings?"

"Racing horses."

"What's poker the sport of?"

"It's the sport of people who play poker."


"So don't adjust that dial; and, while we're gone, if any talking animals ask you to buy some tacos or beer, for God's sake, do what they tell you."
