That's not rock-bottom. It's the return of the Ocho. And you forgot to include the World Beard and Mustache growing competition, on earlier this morning.

This was standard fare when I first started watching ESPN back in 1980.

I truly love watching the Ocho stuff. If you enjoy competition and watching individuals committed to their craft competing at the highest level, it is still entertaining.

It's sort of like watching reality TV except that the competitors are nicer.

Jim McKay would treat whatever sport he was covering for Wide World as the most important event of the day, even if only a thousand people were interested.

Additional 'live sports' for those interested -- NASCAR on Fox, as well as IndyCar on their website are airing live sim races run through iRacing. Live events with commentary.

They'll be running a sim race this Sunday around 1-1:30pm. It's interesting to watch, and the detail is incredible.

FS1 carries live horse racing from tracks that are still open without spectators. They use the live feeds that are sent to OTB parlors and casinos. Goes from 3-6 pm today, which is two hours less than they had last week.

TVG carries horse racing all day and night with US and international races. You can place bets on their website to make it interesting, I’ve been having a blast. There’s a big race this Saturday at Oaklawn where the top 3 will qualify for the Arkansas Derby, which is essentially the final to make the Kentucky Derby in September.

Unfortunately, I lived in Kentucky for three years and got completely burned out on horse racing. The final straw was when above the fold main front page story was about a horse that broke a leg and the below the fold story was about something as unimportant as the killing fields of Cambodia. This was the Louisville Courier-Journal, not the Murray Ledger & Times. I've recently discovered, to my everlasting shame, that Walter N. Haldeman, the founder of the Louisville Courier is my second cousin, five times removed. But that's another story for another time! ;-)

Be careful with that Calloway County cut OCF. I spent part of every August there during my formative years while visiting my mother's hometown on the other side of the lake in Cadiz.

Interesting that you have roots in Cadiz (pronounced Katies). We went through that burg a number of times on the way to and from Ohio. We had friends in Murray who moved there specifically because the Ledger & Times had a front page story on the stealing of a bicycle. They said that if that was big news in the town, it was probably a safe place to raise their kids. This couple was kind of financially independent and could move anywhere they wanted. They subscribed to newspapers in a number of their prospective new hometowns and chose Murray, they told us, because of that story.

Sometime I'll tell you about Cousin Haldeman. Maybe over a beer!

Wouldn't mind watching any kind of "lumberjack games" replays.

I went a few times to the defunct Paul Bunyan fest up at Hocking College a few times while a student at OU. Pretty impressive to watch!

Professional baseball has started in Taiwan, and is being streamed for free, in English, on Twitter. No fans allowed, but cardboard cutouts and mannequins are sprinkled in the stands, so the atmosphere is similar to a Tampa Bay Rays game. Live cheerleaders and mascots perform between innings. Pitchers seem to throw in the 88 to 92 mph range. Fielding alternates between spectacular catches and amateurish overthrows. A mannequin would have done better at calling balls and strikes than the umpire on display in today's game.

The downside? The games start at 5:30 A.M. EDT.

ElevenSports shifts from baseball to basketball tomorrow, April 21, by streaming game 1 of the finals of Taiwan's men's professional basketball league. Alas, tipoff is at 5:00 A.M.
