Underrated sports themes

Recommended Posts

This is for any main theme from an official broadcasting company that covers professional sports and their themes for the sports. I’ll get it it started, the NFL on NBC theme from 1995-1997 is simply spectacular!

It’s usually shadowed by roundball rock.

I agree with @Sebastianm it sounds majestic.

 

And for its three year run it is associated with a lot of notable NFL moments: the Raiders 1st season back in Oakland, Original Browns leaving for Baltimore, the Ravens first season, and John Elway finally winning a Super Bowl.

This is true of literally everything. Anytime I do something worthwhile, it’s immediately overshadowed by how great Roundball Rock is.

This is a better version in my opinion.

I gave my boss a proposal for a project that would modernize our data center which would reduce down time to <1%, decrease annual maintenance costs by >$5M, and enable cloud-based functionality that would revolutionize our mobile presence.  Her response?  "well, it's no Roundball Rock, but I guess we should do it anyway.  Next time try harder."

On a serious note, the Flyers used this one for a few seasons.  It's very Roundball Rock-esque and I think it worked really well for a hockey broadcast:

The closing theme to This Week in Baseball, entitled "The Gathering Crowds", is the most inspirational piece of music I have ever heard.

 

 

Not only is it beautiful in its own right (oh, those timpanis!), but it is associated with great memories of baseball's golden age.

As a 90s kid it signified the MLB on FOX doubleheader was coming next.

Excellent choice.  I can hear Mel Allen's voice now.
