Sportscenter is a great show. When it first started in 1979 it was a godsend. Local newscasts would still be saying "and the Dodgers just getting underway on the west Coast." We all knew that the game was half over!! Until ESPN there was no way to get it since the Internet wasn't around yet.
They cover all the "major" American sports. A rotating group of anchors show video highlights of games and interviews as well as "quippy" comments. To some people sportscenter is not that big of a deal in today's world of 2006. There are other sports networks and of course the Internet. It is still one of the best sources for sports score and highlights around.
