We too are receiving ESPN.  It is coming as a gift subscription through
EBSCO.  I haven't done anything with it yet, because I am waiting to see
if the gift ends and we are asked to subscribe.

We too are receiving a complimentary gift subscription to ESPN-it comes
from EBSCO. According to a card that we received from EBSCO, you can call
800-803-6115 to inquire about the subscription. WE have not received any
kind of invoice-my guess is that it will run out soon-this is a type of
advertisement tool from EBSCO.

Thanks, Amy

We get it too.  We also get YM, which is Young and Modern, not Young Miss.
Ha!!  Don't bother cataloging it.  You'll stop getting them.  It's a
'perk' for being such a good customer.
