Thank the lord almighty. No longer will we have to see a commercial for ESPN Mobile during every damn commercial on my beloved ESPN. ESPN Mobile will be closing the doors on their start-up company, for good (kind of, until they find a big wireless carrier to bring on their data service).

For those existing subscribers out there—your service will continue through the end of the year, but you can opt out at any time and not face any termination fees. Hit the jump to see the official letter to the subscribers. Our compadres over at Deadspin managed to wrangle the internal memo regarding this shitcanning of ESPN Mobile—it is worthy of a peek. Thanks, Paul and Colin
