4.0 out of 5 stars Let's Go to the Videotape 17 Nov. 2004
By Todd Hawley - Published on
Format: Hardcover
It's hard to imagine ESPN starting off way back when as a small cable operation that appeared not to have a future some 25 years later. And yet ESPN has forever influenced and changed sports broadcasting. This book takes a look back at some of the highlights of those 25 years, along with anecdotes from some of sports' greatest moments and ESPN anchors. Heck with the foreword by Chris Berman, what more could you ask for? There's even a brief history of how sports has been reported since the proverbial "beginning of time." And throughout the book are 'best of" lists: the best draft pics, the best sports mascots, best venues to watch a sports event, even ESPN's choices for the greatest athletes of the last 25 years, along with numerous others.

The book helps capture what those crazy early days of ESPN were like, along with an idea of what things are like around there nowadays. I remember watching some of the "early days" of ESPN up to the present. It's amazing to think ESPN has now become an institution. This book is not an "in depth" history of ESPN, there are other books for that. But it is an enjoyable, easily read book that details the ESPN experience and how that experience has changed us all.

And yes points off on the included DVD, it's a shame some of the classic SportsCenter commericals like the Y2K aren't on here.
3.0 out of 5 stars The book is clutch, the DVD not so much 22 Oct. 2004
By N. Divakaruni - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The book is awesome - being 25 years old, this book pretty much covers sports history in my lifetime. However, the DVD leaves much to be desired (and I must admit, a big reason why I purchased this). Note, I don't know what the other guy was thinking, but the Y2K commercial is NOT ON THE DVD. There is no Charley Steiner saying "FOLLOW ME TO FREEDOM!". Unless I got a different edition. There are other commercials that are missing, like the one where the Syracuse Orangeman doing donuts in Terry Labonte's car. Overall, a good purchase. But don't expect much from the free DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dare I say, en fuego..... 22 Sept. 2004
By Tim - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I'll admit, I paid the $25 on this book mainly for the DVD which I must say is stellar. The commercial featuring Keith Olbermann singing "Darrryllll" is downright hilarious. The DVD also features the famed "Around The World" and Y2K commercials as well, I believe there are 30 commercials in all if I am correct. As for the book, I'll admit I haven't read much of it yet however the chapter on how Keith Olbermann and Dan Patrick invented the catch-phrase was very good. If you are a fan of ESPN or enjoy the "This Is Sportscenter" commercials, this is a must-have.
1.0 out of 5 stars Blech 15 May 2005
By N. Bilmes - Published on
Format: Hardcover
ESPN 25 seems as if it were put together by a high school senior trying to do a quick job on a term paper. The prose and content make the book flow about as well as a lactose-intolerant person's colon after downing a double-thick milkshake and grilled cheese.

The book is worthwhile only if you can get it for a steep discount, and even then only if the DVD is still intact.
