With the expansion of sports television coverage over the last several decades, each television network has aimed to make its broadcast presentation the best and most memorable in the business. One of the overlooked aspects of creating a viewing experience that becomes familiar and, thus, habit-forming, is the theme music that a network chooses for each sport. I have compiled a list of the top ten sports theme songs in recent memory: 10 – College Football on ESPN ***** ESPN kicks off our list with its college football theme that ran from 2004-2010. While this jingle may not be anything special, it adds a marching band feel to the broadcast, helping fans at home feel like they are at the game. 9 – USGA – US Open on NBC ***** The US Open theme is a favorite of mine. Coming from the great composer Yanni, this inspires me to go out and play a round with a few friends. Then I come back to earth and realize that even though this gets me excited for golf season, it doesn’t enhance my skills.
