Worst Sports ad

Dan Marino shilling those crappy Isotoner Gloves. If that's what he really gave his O-line as a gift every year, then it's no wonder he ate turf as often as he did.

"Take care of the hands that take care of you.''

I'm sure his teammates were thrilled that their multi-million dollar quarterback could splurge on something so kitsch.

He had a crappy agent too, the man was a passing machine, and THIS was the best endorsement he could do? :angered:

Dan Marino will do a commercial for anything, and they're ALL lame. From the Papa John's commercial to the Widescreen Commercial, the whole 9, they just plain suck.

The Mia Hamm "tribute" commercial, especially that cheesy ass part where hubby Nomah says, "thanks, beautiful" or some stupid :censored: like that.

#1 - she's not beautiful

#2 - Americans don't care about soccer (they should, but they don't)

#3 - even if Americans did care about soccer, they wouldn't care about women's soccer no matter how much it's forced down their throats...

1. The diet pepsi ad series was a complete flop.

2. The stupid agassi and whatserface playing tennis together, I hate that corny mush.

3. The dumb ads with Vlad and A-Rod hitting bombs and they break a window and leave. It was just a waste of 30 seconds of my life.

Best ever:

1. The Amazing Leon. Guy's an effigy of all the sports jerks out there. Good for a laugh every time.

2. Miller Lite Ref series. While I'm not a fan of their beer, Miller's recovered nicely from their weak ads of a few years ago. The stupid "president of beers" ad series was lame, almost devestatingly so. But with the new "All Rise For Great Taste" ads, and the ref ones, they're getting back into the scheme of things. Budweiser still owns them.

3. Terry Tait beating up those poor office guys. Hilarious.

Or the Patriots one "Why can't I be fraud monitoring?"..Ugh.

That one's terrible.

Those Diet Pepsi ones are awful, too. And I'd have to agree on that NHL on OLN one with the We Believe... The first part isn't that bad, but that whole commercial just goes on for way too long.

And I have to agree with greg on that Mia Hamm one. It was just sort of weird.

My favorites: The one with Peyton Manning when he's being a fan and he's asking the grocery store guys to sign his bread and chanting "DE-CAF" at the diner.

Also the one where "he's a lonely man", when he throws the football to no one and has no one to drink with or anything. I have a couple more good ones too but I don't feel like thinking of them.

That's John Elway. It's some contest to where you can sit next to John Elway at the pro bowl. I forget which company it's for though.

I hate, :censored: Hate, :cursing: HATE :angered: those MasterCard ads with Manning!

Yes, I know it's supposed to be cute showing a superstar QB cheering on ordinary people, but to me it unintentionally it comes off as him making fun of them instead. I mean really how seriously could someone making minimum wage take being "cheered" at by an uber-rich pro athelete?

About the only good thing that came out of it is when he's choked in the playoffs against New England and the crowd jeered "Cut that meat!" over and over at him. So it would seem I'm not the only one who remembers that ad with disdain.

Just when I thought he couldn't get more annoying, they make all new ones. Too bad if the Pats face the Colts in the playoffs this year it will be at the Dome so if he screws up he won't hear "De-Caf" chanting in his ears.

"Cut that meat! Cut that meat! Cut that meat!"

Those commercials are awful except for that line. I use it all the time, it annoys the hell out of my mother while she's trying to make dinner. That and whenever my brother and I get together we pull out the "Ranch! Ranch" "Tell your stupid ranch tooth to shut up," routine. For your information, yes, we are dorks.

In addition, I agree with the Diet Pepsi machine commercials are awful. I don't mind the Cpaital One patriots ones. Another one I cannot stand is the Terry Bradshaw Mineke commercials. He is just so not funny.

I do like the MLB commercials that they did with the kids where major leaguers were teaching them to play. I think they were for charity or something. They are cheezy, but it looks like everyone is having fun and the goofiness of them makes me smile. Also, I loved the NFL United Way ads, especially the one where Duce Staley got a time out because he complained that he had to spell "crysanthemum" and the kid had to spell "cat".

The best ad has to be the Nike ad where Lance Armstrong's boxing, Agassi's playing for the Red Sox, and Michael Vick is a member of the Colorado Avalanche. Just a cool commercial all the way around.

And anything with Terry Tate, office linebacker.

Worst? Dan Marino hocking Samsung. A great qb with a horrible agent.

Honorable mention was Sammy Sosa hocking High Heat Baseball. "It's so reeeeel!"

Worst:

The Mike Ditka "men's hairspray" (Consort? I think?) commercials from the late 90's

Mike Piazza, ALF, and 1-800-CALL-ATT or whatever it was for

Terry Bradshaw and 1-800-COLLECT

Michael Jordan's Ball Park commercials

Michael Jordan's Hanes commercials

Sammy Sosa's High Heat Baseball. "It's sooo real!" I liked Sammy, but I wanted to punch him in the face.

John Madden and Outback

John Madden and Tinactin "BOOM! Tough actin' Tinactin!"..grr.

Debatable:

Fred McGriff's ads for Tom Emanski's Baseball World. Longest-running footage for one commercial? That commercial had to be made in 1989, and I still see it on late-night TV sometimes. He was such a bad actor...(monotone)"This is the instructional video that *points* gets results.(/monotone) And I wish I could wear a hat like that.

Doug Flutie and 1-800-whatever. "Hey, little brother, go long." ... "Falls for it every time." Bad commercial, but everybody's done that at least once.

Best:

Muhammad Ali and D-Con...that was hilarious

Yogi Berra's commercials...well, most of them

Craig Heyward and whatever that was. "But Ironhead, what's with the thingy?"

Peyton Manning's "D-CAF!" I love it.

Nike with Vick playing hockey, Agassi playing for the Sawx, etc

The new Gatorade one with Dwight Clark missing "The Catch," MJ missing the shot over Ehlo, etc

And a special "Awww..." category has to go to:

Joe Greene and Coke.

...and I honestly watch almost no TV. Good memory, I guess.
