Sports fans heart pink unicorns!

Entering the Konami cheat code at the official ESPN Web site made the cutest little ponies EVER pop up all over the site.

ZOMG! Sports lovers who also love glittery pink unicorns with rainbow manes and tails were so in luck earlier Monday. Entering the Konami cheat code (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, enter) at the official ESPN Web site made the cutest little ponies EVER pop up all over the site. And more clicks led to more unicorns.

But that's not all. Visitors also got their headlines in hot pink and the Comic Sans font--enough adorable to make any 10-year-old girl forget about Hannah Montana.

It's a good thing we found out about this little bit of awesomeness before some meanies at ESPN appeared to disable the cheat. Luckily, we captured a couple of screenshots so we can plaster the unicorns all over our desktops.

Thanks, Kotaku, for sharing the magic.
