Bristol, CT (AHN) - The Entertainment Sports Programming Network's main website was victims of a Cornify script Monday which, when activated, flooded the well known sports outlet's website with an overlay of ponies. If one entered the Konami code, (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, b, a, start) on the ESPN website, the overlays would begin. The Konami code is a staple of those who grew up playing the Nintendo entertainment system. When inserted at the start screen of many Konami games - perhaps most notably, Contra - it would grant the gamer 30 extra lives. The script originally came from Cornify.com, the self-proclaimed "#1 unicorn and rainbow service worldwide, giving websites sparkle around the world." Rumors are circulating the web that this work is the work of a designer's practical joke at ESPN, rather than a hacker, but there has been no official word on that as of yet. While ESPN quickly killed the code, they have not released an official statement about the event. Google Cache still has the overlays if one wishes to see them however. --- http://www.allheadlinenews.com/articles/7014959608

So maybe this is why I couldn't get it to work. :( I missed it.
