Highlights of the Year

Best Sports Commercial: Olympic hoops Nike ad with Marvin Gaye singing national anthem, LeBron James sneaker commercial with Pussycat Doll, Heidi Klum for Guitar Hero
Can't say I'm enamored with any of these but we'll go with Klum.

Best Rick Roll: Eastern Washington basketball game, Mets organization, John McCain, Hot Clicks readers
It would have been great if they played it every 7th inning stretch.

Most Memorable Betting Story: Sasha Vujacic throws in meaningless 3-pointer in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals, Iowa St. covers +13 against Iowa in Week 3 because of an intetional safety by Iowa, Phillies bettors get paid for suspended Game 5 of the World Series, End of the Steelers-Chargers game in Week 11
That was the biggest nonsense ever.

Blogosphere Moment Of The Year: Chris Berman "unplugged" videos hit Deadspin, Shaq asks Kobe how his a-- tastes, Chris Cooley accidentially shows his junk on his blog
Boomer cursing left and right was pretty damn hilarious.

Best Banned Commercial: 1/28:Jawbone, 9/3: New Yorker, 10/10: Bud Light, 11/24 Ikea
Those Ikea spots were pretty solid.

Best Sign: Erin Andrews Loves The Hardwood, Incoming Kelvin Sampson Call, Let's Lei Hawaii Doggie Style
She does in fact love it.
