Let's face it; SportsCenter is one of the greatest shows of all time, and also has the greatest long-running series of commercials EVER. En Fuego, as it were. What clever people over there in Bristol. Dan Patrick, Boomer, Stu Scott, Kenny Mayne...what more can you say? One of my favorites is the old school no- nonsense Bob Ley. Charley Steiner's also great, and willing to do anything in the commercials. Ley and Chris Berman led the way in the early going, and then Dan Patrick and Keith Olbermann brought the show onto another level.
(Olbermann leaving the Big Show was about as stupid as Shelley Long leaving "Cheers.") The show has changed the way athletes view themselves always looking for a way to get into the highlight reel. And it has changed the way that other networks broadcast sports and show highlights. And think of the catch phrases: put the biscuit in the basket, as cool as the other side of the pillow, he could...go...all...the...way, you can't stop him, you can only hope to contain him, show them what they've won: a National League baseball game. All the great ones. Boo-Yah!
