ESPN doesn't "sell" bowling or poker. They put it on TV, and people watch it. The NHL has been on ESPN for years, and it's gotten the same ratings. The World Series of Poker suddenly goes on and is a ratings boon. That has nothing to do with ESPN selling either sport, and everything to do with poker being more popular than hockey.
