Say what you will about ESPN. They’re too mainstream. They steal people’s stuff without giving credit. They protect certain sports figures. Whether you agree with the complaints or not, you have probably heard them all. But don’t you dare try to say the most recent “This is SportsCenter” commercial that the World Wide Leader released isn’t solid gold.
Since he is almost always shown from a straight-on angle, very few people realize that John Clayton has a mullet/ponytail of sorts hanging from the back of his head. The man they call “The Professor” has a hairstyle that has been a running joke among the blogosphere for quite some time now, and ESPN finally decided to get in on the fun. Thank goodness for that. Anything less than a round of applause for John Clayton the headbanger would be a drastic injustice.
