This Is SportsCenter: NCAA Tourney Classics Edition

For all you people who live under a rock, or just are not sport fans, Sportscenter is a highlight show that airs at various times throughout the day on ESPN, the biggest sports cable network in the country. Most sportsfans watch the show at least once a day, but people obsessed with sports like me find ourselves watching the show multiple times a day for constant updates. The show features a rotating cast of anchors, both men and women, who all have their distinct brands of humor and catch phrases that make the show so great. But the best part about Sportscenter, or ESPN for that matter, are the series of commercials that they use to promote the show. Throughout the years there have been hundreds of these commercials, starring athletes, mascots, anchors and celebrities to illustrate what life must be like at the ESPN studios in Bristol, Conneticut. They are usually quite hilarious and make you appreciate good advertising as well as offering you a new prespective on atheletes you usually only see performing in their particular sport. For all you non sports fans out there, this is an oppurtunity for you to see great commercials you probably have never seen because you don't watch ESPN. You may not start liking sports because you watch these clips, but you will enjoy some funny stuff. It's a win-win for everybody.

This week I chose two videos that symbolize NCAA March Madness. The first has all the anchors clamoring for give-aways when the spirit squad shows up. Love the role reversal from anchor to fan... hysterical.

The Second involves a one on one altercation between anchor Karl Ravich and The Syracuse Orangemen Macsot... and it gets ugly.

Enjoy the clips... thanks for the classics ESPN!!!
