For the 4th year in a row, ESPN 2 will turn into ESPN 8 on March 22nd, 2020. ESPN uses this yearly ESPN 8 to make a bit fun of itself and show sports that typically don’t appear on ESPN including dodgeball. This year ESPN is using it to fill in the void left by the lack of live sports. ESPN 8 comes from the movie Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story. The good news is you don’t need cable TV to watch this as Sling TV, Hulu, YouTube TV, and AT&T TV NOW will all have ESPN 8.
Among the newcomers to this year’s event are:
- Stupid Robot Fighting League: Created in New Zealand by John Espin (Yes, that is his actual name.), Stupid Robot Fighting is a rather unique form of fighting that pits two life-sized hanging puppets controlled by an operator sitting behind each Stupid Robot.
- 2019 Jelle’s Marble Runs: Races in which both participants and spectators are marbles.
- Cherry Pit Spitting: The 46th Annual Cherry Pit-Spitting Competition is held each year in Eau Claire, Mich., with one goal for competitors—to spit the farthest cherry pit.
- Sign Spinning: The 12th Annual World Sign Spinning Championship, held in Las Vegas, brought together AArrow Sign Spinners from more than 50 cities and a dozen countries to asses style, execution, and technical sign spinning ability.
- 2007 World Sport Stacking Championships: Sport stacking can be an individual or team sport where participants stack specially designed cups in predetermined sequences as fast as possible.
- 2019 Death Diving World Championship: An amateur diving sport performed from a 10m platform with separate competitions for Classic and Freestyle.
