SportsNationI'm sure most people didn't even know that there was a world record for running while on fire, but there is, and a new record was set over the weekend. As this clip from 'SportsNation' (weekdays at 5PM ET on ESPN2) shows, daredevil Ted Batchelor ran the bases at a Savannah Sand Gnats minor league baseball game and broke the record.

He runs about 300 feet, which tops the old record of 200 feet. The question is, does the 'SportsNation' audience think it's awesome or lame?

Michelle Beadle Calls LeBron James a Nerd (VIDEO)

SportsNationPlenty of four-letter words have been thrown in LeBron James's direction since he left Cleveland to play basketball with his friends in Miami. Up until now, "nerd" had not typically been one of them. But that's what 'SportsNation' (weekdays at 4PM ET on ESPN) co-host Michelle Beadle called LeBron today while making fun of the pictures from his 25th birthday party in Las Vegas, which featured James wearing sunglasses while partying in a club, awkwardly posing with four fingers held up, and a cake decorated with a crown logo.

Co-host Colin Cowherd defends James, arguing that sports fans will all start loving him again when he starts winning. Um, that's only if you're a Miami Heat fan, and they're already loving the self-styled King. Everyone else? They'll keep ripping him, except of course when oohing and aahhing at his nightly on-court exploits on 'Sportscenter.'

Should We Still Be Talking About Tiger Woods and His Wife?You may have heard about the marital troubles of golfer Tiger Woods and his wife Elin Nordegren. There was some cheating on Tiger's part -- with a ton of girls. Then there were some voicemails, a situation involving attacking a car with a golf club, and now -- reportedly -- Elin is considering a divorce from Tiger and wants a $750 million settlement.

But should we still be talking about all of this? On 'SportsNation' (weekdays, 4PM ET on ESPN2), hosts Colin and Michelle debate whether the marriage of the golfer is an appropriate topic for discussion. This is in response to a press conference where Tiger was asked about his relationship with Elin, and replied: "That's none of your business."

Host Michelle Beadle says we should stop talking about the whole affair; co-host Colin Cowherd disagrees. Hmm. So which position is right?

TV Squad Ten: Top Ten ESPN shows from worst to first

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 24th 2009 2:02PM
espn_logo_redIt seems like ESPN has been around forever, doesn't it? Can you even remember a time when there hasn't been an ESPN to turn to for a score or breaking news or updates? I can't. But along with the news ESPN provides, the ESPN brand has expanded to include a bunch of networks, a magazine, restaurants and lots of tchotchkes. But let's just look at the TV shows, shall we? One note: SportsCenter is not included because it's more of a daily news show as opposed to the programs that are more talk and game-oriented. Here's the top ten ESPN created shows, from the worst to the first.

10. Sports Nation
This is a relatively new daily show on ESPN with radio talker Colin Cowherd and Michelle Beadle co-hosting. It's supposedly an interactive program with surveys that include the fans, but all the bells and whistles can't change the fact that Cowherd is an obnoxious know-it-all that dominates the conversation – when they have one. It's new and shiny, but it's a mess.
