On their new channel, www.youtube.com/ESPN, you'll find Albert Pujols' towering home runs and Peyton Manning's laser passes, Kobe Bryant's turnaround jumpers and Brock Lesnar's haymakers, the hottest breaking news stories and a ton of original ESPN shows. SportsCenter Right Now — a twice-daily capsule of top sports stories — will also live on the channel, as will clips from Outside the Lines, E:60, Mike and Mike in the Morning, Pardon the Interruption, Around the Horn and Kenny Mayne's original digital series Mayne Street, as well as special packages and playlists created around events like the X Games (which is July 30-August 2). All of this is viewable through a special ESPN video player on the watch page and at YouTube's sports hub, www.youtube.com/sports.
