The Konami Code Makes ESPN.com Magical!

Sports fans with a taste for glittery unicorns should run, not walk, to ESPN.com and remember their Konami Code, because it appears that some soon to be possibly unemployed web designer is having a laugh.

As a couple of unicorn-loving tipsters with a thirst for sporting news have informed us, inputting the infamous Konami cheat code (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, enter) will infest the official ESPN web site with mystical ponies. And they'll keep spawning if you keep clicking.

Not only do you get an eyeful of unicorn and rainbow, you'll also get a heaping help of Comic Sans. And every story will become "cute," "magical" or "sparkly." Thanks to Ken and CronoX2 for the mystical tip!

    ...I'll admit, I'm not a fan of sparkly unicorns, or horses for that matter. But I couldn't stop clicking! It was too rich.

    ESPN - Everyone's Sparkle-Pony Network.

    Too bad the code was promptly taken down w/in an hour of you guys running this. I would've loved to have seen that.

      Still works. Go to the TV page and try it.

    Looks like it's fixed?

    (Or was IE only?)

      It's working right now. I just did it.

    you sure it works? i tried it on the TV section and no luck.

    try the article about Luke Walton's ankle injury or Ben Gordon's MRI. awesome.

    Use the Google cache and it will work. Click here: http://74.125.113.132/search?q=cache:ssdn4F46EEYJ:espn.go.com/+espn.com&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

    heh tried it with the cached page and it worked fine. That is friggin awsome. Kudo's to the web designer, funny shit.

    Worked for me with Firefox. Ii used this page: http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/playoffs/2009/news/story?id=4105618
