From SportsCenter’s early Thursday entrance with a special 8 a.m. ET edition, all the way through the wee hours of Friday morning’s Futbol Picante on ESPN Deportes, there was no need to stray far from ESPN’s screens and sounds as the network blanketed the World Cup, the NBA Finals and the U.S. Open.
Here is a sampling of the social reaction to a remarkable team effort that included the memorable, the incredible and the shocking. . .
US open, world cup, and the Finals. .. great day for sports @Espn
