“This is SportsCenter” commercial of the week: Rain delays

Mondays are always tough to deal with (hence the Tuesday evening post!)

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”.

Ever wish you could take a rain delay from work, just kind of shut the computers down and walk away because it’s too rainy out? Apparently the only place that occurs is in the Major Leagues or SportsCenter. This parody looks at what the anchors do when the rains come, complete with bubble-gum gags and idle conversations. Too bad they couldn’t get one of the anchors to slide across the stage like it was a wet tarp.
