We all give ESPN crap frequently (and for good reason), but their 'This is SportsCenter' commercials have always been outstanding. And today, they released what has to be their best 'This is SportsCenter' commercial yet:

It would've been an awesome commercial anyway, but it's even better when you factor in that people have wondered over the years if John Clayton has a ponytail (and I'm sad to say that he does not actually have one).

Surprise surprise, Rod Tidwell just killing it on 'SportsCenter'. And honestly this may be the first thing said on 'SportsCenter' that I can actually agree with in a long, long time.

When Dan Patrick and Keith Olbermann hosted the show? Well, they are tag-teaming it up again, for NBC's "Football Night In America" this time. I thought this was the best NFL pregame show around last year, and it can only get better with these two guys running the show:

Dan Patrick has been named a co-host of NBC's "Football Night in America" studio show, reuniting him with Keith Olbermann. The two redefined sports highlights during their time together on ESPN’s SportsCenter from 1992-97.

Patrick, who will handle highlight duties with Olbermann, joins host Bob Costas and co-hosts Cris Collinsworth and Olbermann, along with analysts Jerome Bettis and Tiki Barber and reporter Peter King.

"We are proud to reunite one of the greatest teams in the history of sports broadcasting. Dan and Keith were more than successful together, they defined the way that sports highlights are now delivered. Their unique delivery has been sorely missed and now they’ll be able to take their act to a primetime network television audience each Sunday night in the fall,” said Dick Ebersol, Chairman, NBC Universal Sports & Olympics.

Olbermann said: “I’m delighted to be reunited with my tag team partner. I can’t stop Dan Patrick from working with me again, I can only hope to contain him.”

Olbermann and Patrick, while anchoring SportsCenter, became renowned for their inimitable style of coupling pop culture and sports – now a hallmark of the modern television sports reporter. While at ESPN, Olbermann and Patrick also wrote the critically acclaimed book “The Big Show” about their experiences working on SportsCenter. Costas wrote the foreword to the best-selling book.

“I think it’s a great idea because it reunites one of the great combinations ever in TV sports,” said Costas. “I’ve been in favor of the idea ever since NBC Sports reacquired the NFL but we haven’t been able to work it out until now."

Patrick is currently a columnist at Sports Illustrated and contributes to In October of 2007, Patrick began hosting a new version of The Dan Patrick Show, which airs on XM radio.


I saw this live on SportsCenter a couple hours ago. Interesting conversation with him and Brian Kenny...

Update(10 PM): Speaking of Bengals wide receivers, Chris Henry is back in the news! Thanks to our good buddy Toph for sending us the link...

CINCINNATI -- Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry has been accused of punching an 18-year-old in the face and breaking a car window with a beer bottle.

Court documents show Henry was charged Wednesday with misdemeanor assault and criminal damaging in the Monday incident in Cincinnati. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.

The 24-year-old player was in court last week after being ticketed for driving with expired Kentucky license plates.

He was suspended by the NFL for the first half of last season for repeatedly violating the league's conduct policy. He was arrested four times during a 14-month span.

A message seeking comment was left late Wednesday for Henry's attorney. His agent and a team spokesman said they were looking into the accusations.

Royals outfielder Joey Gathright is one of the fastest guys in the league, and I'd be willing to bet he can jump higher than anybody in the league as well:
As you can tell by the video, this was #1 on Sportscenter's Top Plays tonight...

And here's the infamous video of him jumping cars:
