YouTubeFest

There's some quality material in Bill Simmons' YouTube Hall of Fame, and his column always cracks me up. For me, nothing beats William Shatner's rendition of "Rocket Man" for sheer unintended hilarity (no, it was not a parody). Understandably, The Sports Guy from Boston includes a couple of 2004 Red Sox-Yankee playoff moments on his list. My sports favorites are the classic highlights from the year the Indians won it all. Oh, wait...they didn't have video back then. I guess you know you're on a cold streak when all of your city's great sports highlights are in black and white. Stills.

And speaking of regional sports rivalries, I loved this classic Onion piece, adaptable for any fan anywhere.
