This is Sportscenter Commercial of the week: It’s Dinnertime

Mondays are always tough to deal with, especially if you’re responsible for lighting at the New Meadowlands Stadium.

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”.

Today’s entry comes from a horribly awkward and surprisingly unshaven head of Scott Van Pelt before he became a SportsCenter mainstay. Here he’s having a debate about just what time 6 p.m. is, using John Anderson for some much needed reinforcement. We’ve always known Van Pelt to be a great conversationalist who makes wonderfully sound arguments, so it’s shocking SportsCenter has held onto that time slot for so long.
