Lately, I have been pondering about what is the greatest sports theme song of all time?
Excluding John Tesh's amazing "Roundball Rock" for NBA on NBC, a classic, what could it be?
Here's one that could be: The old NBA on CBS theme.
The quintessential basketball theme of the 80s. You hear it and just wait for Magic and Larry duking it out at the Garden or the "Bad Boys" of Detroit throwing punches.
Another nomination is the old Hockey Night in Canada theme.
You know its great when an entire nation and Wayne Gretzky spoke up and tried to save it (to no avail however, CBC lost the rights).
Or what about Wimbledon on NBC?
Waking up as a child on a Sunday morning and hearing this as Andre Agassi took to the hallowed grass of Centre Court is perhaps my earliest tennis memory. I look forward to Wimbledon every year, but now the song is silenced because ESPN now has the exclusive rights to Wimbledon. You will be sorely missed.
There's countless others that I don't have the time to put on here. Hit up my Facebook page (link to the right of the screen) and tell me your favorite theme.
