If you’re between the ages of about 28-40 and you’re a sports fan, then you probably remember that true professional sports celebrity in the 80s and 90s was solely measured by how many highlight videos you were a part of.
For those of you under the age of 28 (and didn’t have an older sibling), let me briefly explain: a highlight video was mostly on VHS (the thing that looks like oversized music tapes made of plastic) OR if your family was rich/techy, the video was on Laser Disk (holy shit, it was a giant mini-disk…does anyone remember mini-disks?). This was before the internet, before you could look up instant highlights all the time via youtube or any number of kinds of online content.
I feel it is my duty as an all-knowing, all-sports-nerd and fan of the 80s and 90s; that I should keep the tradition of poorly edited and overly dramatic highlight videos going somehow. So without any more delay, I give you the “Sports Highlight Videos of the Past” of the day, here’s 12-15 minutes of quality time wasted:
