It has been one full week since the sports world has come to a grinding halt. Nobody knows when it will return, but that does not mean there will be a shortage of sports on TV.

While some leagues are offering free passes to watch old games, ESPN2 will be transforming into ESPN8: The Ocho on Sunday, March 22 for 24 hours.

If it’s almost a sport, they will have it as the sports network broadcasts its fourth edition of the obscure sports station that was inspired by the 2004 comedy “Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story.”

Death diving, cup stacking, stone skipping and stupid robot fighting are just some of the “sports” that will be featured. Here is the complete schedule:
