not exact, but Kondolar Italic might do it.
Larger sample with a few more glyphs here:
The logo as seen in Justin's link appears to be a unique design, with no associated independent typeface. The characters themselves look like a serif version of Playoff, an ESPN proprietary font family developed by Pablo Medina. They're similar (but not the same) as in the Disney World signage for "Disney's Wide World of Sports"
Thanks for that info, Herb. I remember when Disney's WWoS got the ESPN makeover a few years back, a lot of the signage, etc. changed from City to this new font, and I wondered if it was related to ESPN. Playoff (which apparently does have a serif version) certainly seems to match the more recent branding.
