Not big on internet polls, but this one seemed good

www.petitionsite.com/takeaction/363288220

It's a good cause, but internet polls aren't taken very seriously, and their signatures to goal ratio is pathetic. If you'd rather, I think writing a letter would be more effective.

But I can't find an address to ESPN itself (anyone else???)

I notice they're not listed on the website as a sponsor:
http://expn.go.com/expn/summerx/2003...me=ix_sponsors

X Games IX Gold Sponsors
Adidas
Mountain Dew
The Bell
1-800 CALL ATT
Right Guard Xtreme Sport
Saturn

X Games IX Associate Sponsors
Dippity-do
Reeses
Sony Electronics
Hershey's
Universal
Sony Playstation
Verizon Wireless

Maybe a letter to one of the above sponsors telling them to expect bad publicity for the X-Games if the tobacco ads aren't pulled. Nothing like letting the big money do the talking for you.

We live close to ESPN. I think these are correct.

Espn, (860) 585-2000, 935 Middle St Ste 2, Bristol, CT 06010
