Perhaps in honor of the tie in tonight's All-Star game, the 2 AM edition of Top Plays was devoted to the routine. A pop fly by Troy Glaus, a first-pitch strike by Tanyon Sturtze, hell, even Dan Morgan (IIRC) balking made the top plays. And afterwards, HERE. Are your major-league leaders.

Groundouts: Juan Pierre (157)
Appearances as a Defensive Replacement: Aaron Rowand (34 games)
Appearances as a Pinch-Runner: Luis Ugueto (23 games)
Grounded into DP: Todd Zeile (20)
Passed Balls: Geronimo Gil (11)

Holy cow, the NL GIDP record is only 30, and the major league record is 36. Zeile is on a blistering pace. I think this thrilling record chase may just be what we needed to SAVE BASEBALL. Of course, Zeile is probably working overtime to sow labor dissension so that the strike happens and spares him the ignominy.

To go completely off topic (acutally on topic), the greatest segment in Sportscenter is the infamous Charley Steiner/Jack Edwards reaction to the Carl Lewis National Anthem.

I'm more a fan of the "bulging disc" gaffe, myself. However, Charlie Steiner red as the Wienerville sign was pretty damn funny.

Best thing Carl Lewis has ever done.

Another of my personal favorites is the night that Dan Patrick's mike didn't work and he and Olbermann passed Keith's mike back and forth each time they did a story.

Ah, Dan and Keith. I miss them so much.

When the Sportscenter gimmick was fresh and hadn't been beated into the ground.

I was flipping through my copy of "the Big Show Book" a couple of weeks ago and saw that you and your paper from BGSU were mentioned in it. I exclaimed "I *know* this guy!" and my wife said "What guy?" I thought about giving her the whole story of CRZ's website and Wrestleline and Weinerville but decided I'd rather not elevate my dorkiness in her eyes even *higher* so I just said "Uh, no one."

Anyway, the NEW all-time greatest SportsCenter moment is last night's segment where Mark Malone ran through the 5 most-exciting NFL playoff games of last season and the PATRIOTS STILL WON THE SUPER BOWL! I was worried they were going to show something different.

My all-time silly moment besides the ones you guys mentioned was at the very end of an episode the night Doug Moe got fired as Nuggets' head coach. Bob Ley and Dan Patrick started to loosen up their neckties in a tribute to Moe, a terribly sloppy dresser, and Dan couldn't get his undone at all, so right when they cut to the wide shot of the studio he threw himself back in his chair and hung himself by his necktie. Nothing is quite as funny as when Mr. Serious *Bob Ley* doubles over in laughter.

Somewhere I think I still have the tape that I used when I presented that paper at the Midwest Popular Culture Association conference, which was five good minutes[(c)PTI] of Ketih and Dan, mainly making actual to the show themselves. I know one was the night Keith kept using Dan's catchphrases (Gone!, En Fuego, ...) and Dan was great in his mock anger.

I wish I had the great Olbermann Sportscenter commercials. Hey, isn't it funny how many of the great Sportscenter commercials feature people not at ESPN anymore and so they don't show them (Keith, Kilborn and now Steiner).

Yeah, what happened to Steiner anyway? YES?

And the ads, IIRC, are all archived on espn.com. At least the last time I checked, they had all the old ones, not to mention a bunch I didn't remember.

Correct about Steiner. He's currently doing PBP for Yankees Radio as well as hosting various specials for the YES Network.

Surprisingly, he has yet to kill John Sterling.

Shame too. The one about the Y2K test with Charlie Steiner urging people to follow him to freedom was THE best, followed closely by the one with the International Sportscenters.
