    The WWF (now WWE) Commercials where they took over Sportscenter were funny. Anyone know if they are online somewhere?

    I searched for the Dan and Danica Patrick commercial, but I couldn't find it. :(

    I liked the one where they had to film the show in every language and they dressed up for the countries.

    I don't think we have any commercials about sportcenters in Germany. Or at least I can't think about any right now.

    So it may sound like a stupid question, but are there many in the USA? :confused:

    Some of them are quirte funny, but I hate them all -- they signal the start of the demise of sports center, where the show, the on-air personalities and the catch phrases became more important than the sporting events they cover. Charlie Steiner's escape was from the over-hyped, self-congratulatory, self-important monster Sports Center was becoming.

    The Manning one is adorable!! I hadn't seen that one.

    Skiara- Sportscenter is a tv show on ESPN where they talk about a variety of sports (but basically your major ones Football, Basketball, Baseball, Hockey, etc). So there aren't "centers" around the country although I could see how you might be confused with the way things are worded on here.

    This one isn't a commercial, but it's my favorite SC segment of all-time. Not only because it's hilarious (especially Steiner), but also because it reminds me of the good ol' days.

    I was so happy it was uploaded to YouTube since the tape I had it recorded on was eaten long ago.

    I admit to laughing a little too much at the new commercial where some hunky guy with an Ohio State sweater is on the couch kissing a hot girl wearing a Michigan sweater. It just sort of lingers on and on and finally up comes the graphic: "If it wasn't for sports, this wouldn't be disgusting"

    I remember being like 14 or so when the Charlie Steiner "Follow me to Freedom" commercial came out. My friends and I thought that was the greatest commercial ever made.


    And you know what? We were right. It hasn't been beaten yet, and it probably never will.

    Didn't that air last year too? I love how every time I see it, its followed by the blind date where the woman says she's a Michigan fan and then the man promptly jumps out of the car and down the hill before screaming "Go Buckeyes!" and she speeds away.

    Oh wow, I've never seen that commercial. I've seen the ones done during the 'attitude' era, but never that one. Thanks.:)

    Oh, the Y2K one right? The one where McGwire is smashing computers and chaos everywhere? Love that one.

    Thanks, Horsey. :)

    It sounds interesting. I think I'll watch a bit more of your youtube links. ;)

    The Y2K commercial was hilarious.

    I also like the one with Grant Hill playing piano in the ESPN lobby.

    I think that commercial is older. Maybe it was replayed last year or something, and while I remember it I don't think it's very new.
