ESPN Zone closes tonight

espn zoneTonight is the last night for ESPN Zone, gang.

If you want to get your game on or chow down on a pricey yet middle-of-the-road burger, this is your last chance.

In the meantime, rumors have been swirling about what will become of all the ESPN gear, including the games and TVs.

Apparently, servers are talking about how managers are talking about smashing all the TVs and reporting them damaged beyond repair, so they don't have to worry about selling them ...

I find this hard to believe, and ESPN Zone's marketing rep denied it outright. She said they haven't decided how to handle removing the equipment, and are more worried about personnel at the moment.

ESPN Zone is going to leave a gaping hole in the Inner Harbor. For 12 years, it's occupied a key spot along Pratt Street. Here's hoping Cordish can replace it with something good in the next six months.

Queue the jokes about Dick's filling ESPNZone's hole.

Are they having some type of going away party or anything? Everything half price? They should. What else are they going to do with half filled kegs, etc.?

A poem, in memoriam:

You were a Hard Rock made for meatheads
I'm sorry now you've closed
Where else will I get hot wings
while I Smirnoff ice my bros?

Could you keep us abreast of any updates as it pertains to game sales? I would love to get my hands on the bubble hockey table at a steep discount.

I thought ESPN Zone closed several years ago.

@Sobo Bob -- Sure thing. I'll make some calls and see what I can dig up.

Normal comments are not good enough anymore. People will come up with new ideas all the time. There has some data that is very useful. You say

Deer Repellents, deer repellents, deer repellent.

I have been can to know by article because here has very effective data. It inspired me and its data can help me. I highly recommend it. It is very effective that

Deer Repellents, deer repellents, deer repellent.
