“This is Sportcenter” video of the week: Old timers’ day

Monday mornings are tough enough to deal with (especially if you have the misfortune of being from Philadelphia this weekend).

So to spirit away some of that new week malaise, I’ll be digging deep into the outer reaches of YouTube for yesteryear’s best entries in the most important sports marketing campaign the Western world has ever known: the two-decade behemoth “This is SportsCenter”.

Depending on the extent of your weekend revelry, you may be feeling a little like the old folks in this next clip, one of the most underrated of the “This is Sportscenter” series. In addition to the fresh-faced, marginally less shtick-laden Stuart Scott, the aged co-stars of this spot steal the show. And for those of us stuck at our desks, it’ll brighten your day to know that Honus Wagner played for peanuts…literally for peanuts.
