Yes, ESPN is Actually Promoting Something Called ‘Corso’s Cornhole Challenge’

Posted by on Nov 24, 2012 at 2:18 pm

In case you’re not watching college football on ESPN or ABC, you may have missed this. Really, ESPN, cornhole? Did nobody think of maybe using piehole or cakehole?

Cornhole? Seriously? I mean there are songs using the word, and heck, even a famous character based on the name.

Now apparently there is a game known as cornhole, but damn, I’ve never seen it being played. Maybe I just have too lurid an imagination. Or don’t get out enough.

    after the way Corso Cornholed Marshall Faulk’s chances at the Heisman for Gino Toretto (remember him?), Corso should be bent over and rammed at every opportunity. No takers? Invite Barney Frank

    So it’s not just me. After moving to Kentucky a few years ago and seeing the game advertised everywhere (tournaments, even!), my husband and I looked at each other and decided there must be a regional lack of knowledge of the connotation.

    Yeah, this is a Midwest thing. As Cameron noted, there are tournaments, and leagues, I think. Also, I’m pretty sure at least part of the reason for the name is the fact that each bag used in the ‘official’ game is filled with 1 pound of seed corn. My bags are, anyway. Wow, my Indiana roots are showing!
