JoeSportsFan asks a question we've been curious about ourselves: What would happen if ESPN, the way it exists today, covered historic events? Could we handle Skip Bayless opining on Ty Cobb? How about the Babe's "called shot?"

But if one of the Yankees called his shot during one of those games... I think Bristol would actually burn down. I can't imagine what John Kruk would say on Baseball Tonight later that evening , but I'd like to think it'd be a bunch of sweaty, mulleted gibberish and he would follow it up by eating a hot dog.

Well, there's certainly nothing with THAT.
