About Onion Sports Network

The Onion Sports Network is the undisputed universal leader in sports coverage. OSN has studios and affiliates in every country that has sports, and our unparalleled coverage has made us nearly indistinguishable with the sports we cover.  With its total access and pulse-pounding coverage, the Onion Sports Network has made being a sports fan without it nearly impossible, filling in sports' dull, incomprehensible cracks with a solid wall of adrenaline. OSN has been proven powerful enough to build obscure sports into powerhouses (both the NBA and NFL were secondary leagues before winning OSN airtime), and single-handedly fold once-thriving sports ("tossball" was the most-watched sport in America before OSN took National Tossball Federation games off the air after a contract dispute.) Untold millions around the world turn to OSN first, to be reminded that while governments change, jobs are lost and families fall apart, sports remain the constant source of fulfillment and happiness, and those sports can only be enjoyed on the Onion Sports Network.
