Stump the Schwab

Show Summary

Welcome to the Stump the Schwab guide at Basketball had Michael. Hockey had The Great One. Baseball had The Babe. Sports trivia has … The Schwab. For years The Schwab has toiled in the bowels of our Bristol campus, as ESPN's first, and best, fact researcher. His wealth of sports knowledge is unmatched, his handle on sports stats unparalleled. Almost any stat you hear dropped by Vitale, Berman, Joe Morgan or any other ESPN personality almost certainly came from the The Schwab. No one knows more sports trivia than The Schwab. Or do they? With ESPN's new game show, Stump the Schwab, hosted by Stuart Scott, that's what we intend to find out. This summer, we went to New York City to test hundreds of applicants, grilling them on their sports knowledge. Some were in way over their heads, others could hold their own, but we only found 12 contestants that we thought could possibly hang with The Schwab. On Friday, July 16, at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN, these 12 contestants will go head to head against each other – testing their sports trivia knowledge. Week by week, the numbers will be whittled down until there is one contestant remaining. The last contestant standing will receive a dream ticket package to various major sporting events and the chance to lock horns with The Schwab in the final episode. If someone is good enough to beat The Schwab, he or she will be rewarded with a job at ESPN. Woodbridge, Virginia attorney Curt Spear won the first season of the show and won a sports ticket package.moreless
