Nope - it's a fake, just by the IP address. Ran a WHOIS lookup on the IP address in the URL (68.142.29.97) anyway - it appears to be an external IP address of someone's home network. Sure as hell ain't ESPN. Good forgery, though.

you would think if he wanted to really trick people. He would of at least did a todays style 2007 copyright espn page. instead of a out of date copyright 2006 older style page.. But its funny.. Last year in the Giants forum a guy did one on Tiki Barber and omg did it get that board in a up roar because the guy did a really good job on Tiki being injured and out for the season before it even started with a up to date espn style and everything. And the IP on this one really sets it out to be a fraud.

Absolutely - he could have at least figured out a way to spoof ESPN's domain name - the IP address was a dead giveaway. Unless of course ESPN is going on the cheap and leasing DSL lines from "SnappyDSL," LOL.
