ESPN does a lot of things wrong. If you read this site regularly, you know that we point them out from time to time.
But there are still many things the WWL does well. The 30 for 30 series certainly comes to mind. And the “This Is SportsCenter” commercial series certainly has been a consistent feather in the cap of the network for a long time.
And so it continues.
Here is the latest “This Is SportsCenter” commercial, featuring John “The Professor” Clayton. It includes a very self-aware nod to the rumor that went around about Clayton having a ponytail (nope…it’s a mullet!).
And admit it. When it got to this part, you immediately thought yourself, “Ma! Where’s the meatloaf?!”
As great as this commercial is, however, it still doesn’t trump my personal all-time “This Is SportsCenter” commercial.
Because nothing the network does may ever be greater than Charley Steiner with a tie tied around his head and a lantern in hand yelling “Follow me! Follow me to freedom!”
