Seriously, is this the Lifetime channel? I don't mean to sound insensitive, but I care about, you know, sports? Who really cares if some kid gets to play with some sports star who is only going on there to improve is PR status? And having Chris Connely, the king of cheese reporting doing this makes it all the more unwatchable. Am I the only one who completely sees through this BS?

They did this last year, too. I think it's just a way to fill time during the summer months, which is basically nothing but baseball.

It's cool that they do it, but I wish instead of dragging out what's wrong with the kid they just tell you and get on to the sports star. And it's better than golf and tennis.

Reading the previous posts, I was thinking the same thing. I have no problem with My Wish at all. These months are very slow sports-wise, and it makes decent filler, if nothing else. Plus, Chris Connelly, from MTV to ESPN after all these years...who would've figured?

Hell yes. Amen to that. I hate nascar highlights and I hate golf highlights. The only people who like nascar are hicks down south and the only people who like golf are rich people. The majority of america doesn't like golf and nascar, the majority of america likes soccer over golf and nascar.

I'm a sucker for the MyWish segments, I make sure to sit down and watch every one of them. I will now place my man card on the table and walk away.

Nope, not in the least. I just feel sorry for the other millions of children that don't have clean clothes or food to eat. This is just a publicity gimmick.

You must not like alot of things then since you dont like MyWish cause its a publicity gimmick.

Your proud to be American, yet hate the way majority of Americans are.

hmm, thats probably the coldest **** ive heard in a long time, but i do feel more sorry for children in poor countries that have absolutely nothing, but i wouldnt put down these children on espn, its sad that you cant do it for every child but atleast there doing something
