ESPN-8

In case you haven’t brushed up on your Dodgeball recently, ESPN8 “The Ocho” is the sports network “bringing you the finest in seldom seen sports.” On August 8 (more appropriately, 8/8, or next Tuesday if you don’t feel like looking at a calendar) ESPN is bringing the fictional network to life by transforming ESPNU into ESPN8, The Ocho. Beginning at midnight, the programming will feature offbeat and wacky events like the 2016 American Disc Golf Championship, the 2016 WFTDA Roller Derby Championships, 2016 Sky Zone Ultimate Trampoline Dodgeball, Moxie Games and the Firefighters World Challenge XXV. The events will be aired on the fictional network for 24 hours only. Unfortunately, Cotton McKnight and Pepper Brooks were previously booked and will not be presenting the events. It’s a bold strategy, ESPN.

There are few watches with as storied a legacy as the G-SHOCK. Originally released in 1983, the Shock Resistant and 200M Water Resistant watch has remained relevant to this day. It just got even better with the release of the first full-metal addition to the continually evolving 2100 line. This model retains the original streamlined, minimalist design while being even more sleek, durable and feature-packed. With Tough Solar Power, Smartphone Link and Super Illuminator, it’s an analog watch built for the digital age. The G-SHOCK GBD2100 is available in silver, black IP and Bronze IP colorways, so there’s a stylish version for every occasion.
