what's in a name

the chicago blackhawks continue their journey through the playoffs and, like most chicagoans, i've embarrassingly hoped on the bandwagon.

or at least i've tried to.

the nhl continues to air its playoff games on a channel called versus. versus is not available on our cable network - we have RCN which is in approximately 18 households in chicago. so we've managed to find illegal online feeds of games.

lost in the frustration of this extra effort is the fact that versus is the perfect name for a sports network. especially compared to the name ESPN. quick, what's ESPN stand for?

answer: entertainment sports programming network. versus - now that's a name.
