For those of you who can’t stand today’s advertising frenzy, here are 10 of the best sports commercials that can help ease the pain.
I promise, Ben Stein won’t be narrating any of these videos (although he did make a sports commercial back in the day). And for those of you hoping for “Mean Joe Greene’s” Coke ad, I’ll go ahead and apologize in advance.
Before you begin, here are my honorable mentions:

The Big Shaq Daddy has always tried to prove his versatility off the court. Sure he played basketball, but don't let that sum up his entire career. He's also a certified cop, an actor and an analyst (well...should we really give him this one?).
A bit more realistic than Jordan and Bird's horse game, right? Nothing like draining a couple 90-footers to conclude a hard day's work.
Does anyone else want to give LeBron a shot at doing this for real? I bet he could make one in his first 10 shots.
It has to rank higher than LeBron's commercial because Tiger's actually doing this (at least I think).
The ladies sure do love a man who can juggle.
If only we could clone people! Can you imagine this matchup?
Forget the talent aspect of it, I want to see two guys as competitive as Jordan go up against one another. I honestly believe Jordan would punch a younger version of himself in the face.
This is what would've happened if Dwight Clark, Michael Jordan and Derek Jeter drank Powerade.
I think we all know what Peyton would've been doing had his neck injury kept him out of the game for good. The man has talent.
The NFL retirement program. Sorry, still no compensation for head trauma.
Ah, the crazed world of soccer fans. Great portrayal of how quickly you can go from glory to the gutter, and back.
It speaks for itself.
