On August 8th (8/8), fans of the Ben Stiller/ Vince Vaughn comedy Dodgeball are in for a hell of a day. ESPN has just announced that they are taking the whole day to convert their ESPNU channel into the fictional ESPN8 (The Ocho) for the whole day.

We don’t know if we’ll be seeing the faces of The Ocho’s newscasters played by Gary Cole and Jason bateman during the day, but we do have the complete schedule, they’ve even made room for some dodgeball along the way. :

Midnight: 2016 American Disc Golf Championship
2 a.m.: 2016 WFTDA Roller Derby Championships
4 a.m.: 2016 Sky Zone Ultimate Trampoline Dodgeball
5:30 a.m.: Firefighters World Challenge XXV8
8 a.m.: 2016 Kabaddi World Cup Final
9 a.m.: World Darts Championship
11:30 a.m.: Arm Wrestling: Best of WAL 2016 Championship
12:30 p.m.: 2017 Championship of Bags
2:30 p.m.: EVO 2017 World Championship – Street Fighter
5:00 p.m.: Moxie Games
7 p.m.: U.S. Open Ultimate Championship

If some of those sports don’t sound familiar to you, Kabaddi, is sort of like an Indian version of extreme tag, and the Moxie games are described as “an uncanny, new and amazing event which combines a variety of sports into one, such as dodgeball and juggling, martial arts and volleyball, and table tennis and soccer.”
