Yes, it was that article by Jim Hill on April 25, 2006.

The truth is that the ESPN Club at Disney's BoardWalk was never part of the ESPN Zone chain. Even if DisneyQuest at Downtown Disney had been converted into an ESPN Zone in 2008, as Jim claimed it would be, it's unlikely that this would have caused the ESPN Club at Disney's BoardWalk to close. The ESPN Club has its own following serving the guests staying at the Epcot resorts around Crescent Lake.

In June 2011, Disney Regional Entertainment shut down the ESPN Zone chain. Two ESPN Zones remain in Southern California, but they're not operated by Disney Regional Entertainment. See ESPN Zone at Yesterland for details.

Meanwhile, it's business as usual at the ESPN Club at Disney's BoardWalk and DisneyQuest at Downtown Disney at WDW -- although I wonder how much longer DisneyQuest will last. Now that Splitsville has moved into the former Virgin Megastore, my guess is that Disney would gladly shut down DisneyQuest if another company wants to rent a large space at Downtown Disney.
