ESPN Live Stream Crashes During USA-Germany World Cup Match
Many users across the U.S. were unable to access ESPN‚Äôs WatchESPN video-streaming service as the USA-Germany match in the 2014 FIFA World Cup kicked off at noon Eastern time on Thursday.
An ESPN rep said the sports programmer was ‚Äúinvestigating some limited issues due to unprecedented demand.‚ÄĚ WatchESPN viewership for the first half of the USA-Germany match peaked at more than 1.4 million concurrent viewers.
During the match, WatchESPN peaked at 1.7 million concurrent users ‚ÄĒ a record for the service ‚ÄĒ but that was across all live streams, not just the USA-Germany match. The pivotal Portugal-Ghana match was streaming at the same time, along with ESPN‚Äôs live Wimbledon coverage....
Well Strat,I actually would agree with most of what you stated. I realize that my opinion is immaterial, but, for what it's worth, I would agree that sports, for the most part, are very much of the world...and it would give more credence to the validity to the professing "christian" sports figures if they would "put more clothes on", SF and/or if they didn't have an entourage of scantily clad "cheerleaders" affiliated with them.
Churchs for the most part have always embraced sports with open arms,all the standards they apply to other things to render them forbidden seem to fade away when it comes to sports.
"its of the world" "people involved in it live immoral lives" etc etc don't seem to apply or matter when it comes to sports.....odd,they even celebrate "Christian" athletes and claim that they are witnesses for Jesus in the world of sports...I believe they are but its just strange that they don't apply the same reasoning to other things.
