“This is SportsCenter” commercial of the week: The Closer

Mondays are always tough to deal with, especially at this point in the day.

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”.

I’m sure there are plenty out there (myself included) that could use a closer at their desks right about now, someone to run in from another floor and take over for the final few tasks while you grab an early shower. Were Trever Hoffman, who isn’t otherwise employed at the moment, to blare “Hells Bells” though a speaker and run into my office right now to mop up the final few outs of the afternoon, I certainly wouldn’t react as badly as Kenny Mayne. I just hope Hoffman takes off his glove, because it’s pretty tough to type with a 12 1/2 inch Rawlings on your paw.
