ESPN Says Goodbye to Barry Melrose

Yes, folks. This is footage of Barry Melrose's Farewell party from ESPN. There was such a thing. And, amazingly, there were paparazzi (I think?) there to capture the ESPN party on video.

Yeah. Someone actually covered it. That sound you hear is a bunch of readers slapping their foreheads in unison. It was actually Dirty Water TV that covered it, which is very likely the worst named TV network in the history of TV networks.

All in all, I'm glad that this was caught on tape. I can now sleep a little sounder knowing that Barry is in Steve Levy's fave five.

No word as to whether or not Dana Jacobson was invited.

  1. What's next, Yellow Snow Nightly News?

    As Deadspin has a Pants Party in different locations in the country I suggest we have a Melrose Hockey Pants Party at some point around a TBL game. I have no idea how this would work but I am an idea man, not a detail guy.

  2. I don't know about getting to TB, but a BMR pants party would be just about the bestest thing evar!

    And Dirty Water TV sounds like something on Skinemax or something

  3. I third the idea of a BMR pants party. However, I have the disadvantage of being on the West Side so the party will probably be me and Gray. Incidentally, I will be going to both the Sharks/Lightening and Sharks/Islanders games this year.
