ESPN wants you to watch E:60 this Tuesday

Here I go, dishing out ESPN propaganda again. This time it's regarding the return of E:60, ESPN's newsmagazine that hits the airwaves again this Tuesday.

From ESPN:
ESPN's primetime newsmagazine E:60 will return for 14 weekly episodes beginning Tuesday, Aug. 12, at 7 p.m. ET.  The multi-subject program, on a scheduled break since May 13, will be aired each Tuesday at that time through November 11 – the most episodes in one stretch since E:60’s debut October 15, 2007.
E:60’s first two shows (August 12 and 19) will include:
  • Dara Torres talks to E:60 on the eve of her record fifth Olympics as a swimmer at 41; 
  • a behind-the-scenes look at New England Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss and his foray into NASCAR team ownership;
  • Eventing: the most dangerous Olympic competition and also considered the world’s deadliest sport;
  • the story of English mixed martial arts fighter implicated in the biggest cash heist in history;
  • a profile of an engineer considered the most powerful woman in NASCAR; and more. 
I'm not sure I'm very excited about any of the topics but it's something decent to help get through the dog days of August.

#1. Only white folks do eventing...

#2. Why can't people just wear something "protective" like pads? helmet? got it not the same thing just with some protective measure?

I am an eventer, and we wear safety approved helmets and vests.. it's exactly what they said on the show.. inexperienced riders are buying experienced horses and going out there competing.. "thinking" they can handle it..
