ESPN Revives The Ocho Amid The Coronavirus Outbreak (VIDEO)

ESPN is doing whatever it needs to do to keep people entertained while they are stuck in their homes due to social distancing and quarantining.

To make matters a little easier on us, the Worldwide Leader is bringing back The Ocho, which covers weird and quirky sporting events. They moved it to March instead of August to help with this gruesome time period in all of our lives.

“No, it’s not the eighth of August, or the eighth of anything or even August at all. That is the magic ESPN8: The Ocho. There is always a place for a full 24-hours of seldom seen sports so Sunday, March 22 on ESPN2 will be just that, a full day of exciting content from Ocho stunts past.”

A few of the events:

  • 2019 Spikeball College Championship
  • World Axe Throwing League
  • The Stone Skipping Championship
  • 2019 Jelle’s Marble Runs: Participants and spectators are marbles in these races.
  • 2007 World Sport Stacking Championships: Competitors are timed as they stack specially designed cups in predetermined sequences.
