Q&A: Anyone see ESPN’s ridiculous “Greatest Highlight” results?
Question by Stevie B: Anyone see ESPN’s ridiculous “Greatest Highlight” results?
For a network that is based on highlights, I thought it quite humorous that their own little contest nearly bit them in the backside. For those who didn’t follow it, the final 2 highlights were Mike Eruzione’s goal against the Soviets in 1980 and the Boise State “Statue of Liberty” play from LAST YEAR!
Are you kidding me? All the classic, legendary milestones that we have witnessed over the years (like Eruzione’s goal) and one of the 2 finalists is a year-old highlight from a meaningless college football game? It would have served ESPN right if that play had won the contest. Shame on them for even putting it in as an option. Any thoughts?
Spyderman – Now that’s what I’m talking about! Glad to see I touched a nerve. ESPN is to blame for even making that highlight one of the original choices.

That Boise State play was definitely one of the more memorable highlights from the past few years. People tend do vote for things they remember, so it’s still very fresh in peoples minds.
