It appears that ESPN.com is in the final stages of rolling out a new site design. You heard it here first. Right this second I’m looking at the golf homepage, and it’s actually a little messed up. A story within the golf site doesn’t display the ESPN logo, and some code is visible. I read an article in the hockey section earlier today, and that’s what really tipped me off. For a couple months now, some articles on the site have featured a new horizontal navigation bar that looks a little bit like Apple.com‘s candy/transparent plastic look. You can see that in the NHL article. I say article because it appears that the rollout (and I noticed this in the last version of ESPN.com) affects articles first, before sport homepages or the main ESPN.com homepage itself. However, I expect that the main page will change before the lesser and offseason sports’ pages catch up.
