THE BEST OF TELEVISED SPORTS IN ’07

12.19.07 10 years ago 31 Comments

It's the second half of December, which means that all different kinds of media are looking back on 2007 and making "Best of" and "Worst of" lists.  I considered doing that myself, but it seems like a lot of effort to look back that far.  I mean, I barely remember what happened last weekend.  Though I suppose that's the other side of the coin when you enjoy ether as much as I do.

Anyway, one such year-end list that I enjoyed was Rolling Stone's Forty Reasons We Loved Television in '07, and it ranked Jake Brown's 40-foot fall at the X Games #29, which reminded me how fucking awesome it was to the extent that I decided to re-post it above.  I love it all: the eye-popping "I regret nothing!" free-fall, Tony Hawk's declaration that "I can't believe he made a 720!", and the eventual replays that show Brown's shoes popping off from the impact.  It is fucking glorious.

Other sports-related TV highlights, none of which I can disagree with: Gus Johnson at 12, "Ninja Warrior" at 24, and "Friday Night Lights" at 38. Also: #39: The fact that we are very, very far away from another season of ENTOURAGEAmen, Rolling Stone. AMEN.
