Microsoft's MSN Web portal has signed an exclusive deal with ESPN to host the sports-news network's Web site in return for cross-promotional content. ESPN.com now displays a cute MSN butterfly logo and content bar and will soon offer movies in Windows Media Video (WMV) format; in turn, MSN.com will have access to ESPN's sports scores and stories. I guess I'm OK with this decision, but I draw the line at Bill Gates cohosting SportsCenter.
