With our favorite mascot, Sparty, making a recent appearance on a This Is Sportscenter commercial, I thought we would do a countdown of my all time favorites. Those who know me well, realize I love any and all of these commercials. Now I must warn you I could make a list for days because I laugh every time they come on, but I’ll do my very best to limit the length. For ESPN fanatics like myself I highly suggest enjoying one of the youtube playlists, that contains a whole heap of said This Is Sportscenter commercials. Yes, I have wasted afternoons in my lifetime watching this playlist in its entirety and then showing it to my friends, which concludes with me watching it a 2nd time in a single day. Don’t worry though even if you’re just an average sports fan you’re bound to chuckle at these clever clips.
Spoiler Alert of the post: There will be a heavy dosage of Scott Van Pelt throughout this list. That alone should be worth a tune in.
