You Can Own the ‘SportsCenter’ Desk From ESPN
Have you ever dreamed of sitting behind the same ‘SportsCenter’ desk as broadcasting icons Chris Berman, Dan Patrick, Kenny Mayne, Stuart Scott and many others? ESPN is giving you the opportunity to own the same desk that has anchored the highlight show for years.
The ‘SportsCenter’ desk is among the hundred or so items up for auction as part of a fundraising event leading up to the ESPY Awards on Wednesday. All of the money raised during the auction will benefit the Jimmy V Foundation.
Earlier this month, the iconic show moved into the new digital center that was built in Bristol, Connecticut, and added all-new equipment on the set. That left this desk in need of a new home, which presents a tremendous opportunity for sports fans. The best part of about the desk is that it comes with the video monitors and wiring needed to make the desk look exactly like it did during a live broadcast.
You’re going to need a little extra spending money to bring the desk home. Right now, the auction is up to $2,025 after 25 bids with more than two days remaining. Plus, even if you’re the winning bidder, you have to fork over another $2,000-$4,000 to ship it. But all of the money goes to a great cause.
