So That ESPN Home Run Derby Ball Tracker Thingy....

....is "so fucking out"!*

Remember when Fox Sports had the Puck Tracker a while back? It actually worked too. This? Not so much.

In the Golden Age of Technology you'd think the graphic geeks could track the ball without having the line get all squiggly and jerky. Even worse, the line changed colors like some stoner's bad acid trip the further the ball flew.

The whole concept was about as pointless and mysterious as having Brandon Inge in the Home Run Derby.


*See the awesome trailer for Eastbound and Down over at Ben's blog and you'll understand this reference.
