ESPN Going Inside the Sperm Bank

Suffering from an Olympic letdown? Not willing to watch the Democratic Convention? Well, ESPN would like to take you inside the world of athlete sperm on E:60. Yep, tonight at 7 eastern, it's Sperm U.

E:60 correspondent Tom Farrey exclusively reports the story about the ultimate effort to buy athletic advantage – the purchase of sperm from anonymous donors who are college athletes. He visits the world’s largest sperm bank, California Cryobank in Los Angeles, where the seed of Division I football, basketball and baseball players sells fast. Farrey also speaks with families who purchased the sperm of a former tight end, and he addresses the question: How do expectations change when parents know their child is born with the DNA of an elite athlete?
