ESPN, the self-proclaimed worldwide leader in sports and true pioneer in getting even some of the most obscure events known to man in HD, has let DJ Gallo go right off the deep end.

The second recommendation is the most astounding: "Drop your HDTV package." We can't help but think that he's totally joking here -- a sports website telling hardcore sports fanatics to ditch high-def? Talk about a reason to chuckle.
