Millions of people, many donning special devices designed for viewing, witnessed the total solar eclipse Monday, which stretched across the United States from west to east.
ESPN commentators, their colleagues and viewers anticipated the historic event. The video at the top of the post captures the opening of ESPN2’s 3 p.m. ET coverage of the Little League World Series, which aired less than 30 minutes after the East Coast’s solar eclipse experience.

Got back to office after viewing eclipse and started screaming, "Can't see out of my right eye!". Then realized I got mayo on my glasses.
