Every weekday (and on weekends, occasionally), or at least every weekday in which we can find more than one, we’ll present the day’s best in little noted sports video gems. Please feel free to riff with your own dialogue. Who is Stubby Clapp, you ask? Sir, you wound our esteemed editor.
No idea if the ‘Milkshake’ reference makes any sense, but whatever. ESPN college basketball analyst Digger Phelps and dancing are like a negatively-charged and positively-charged particle: they have no choice but to be attracted to each other. Nevertheless, that doesn’t necessarily mean that should be forced to see it to accept it as a quantifiable fact. Actually, ol’ Digger has some nice moves. To be honest, I’m jealous of how well he dances. I’m still trying to master the “Electric Slide,” for crying out loud. This isn’t the first time Digger has busted a move, either. Rock on with yo bad self, Diggity Digger, you dirty, dirty old man. [The Dagger]
After the jump, creative hockey shootout goals, an Iowa State Hawkeye posterizing a Kansas Jayhawk not once, but twice as well as Dwight Howard doing his best Charles Barkley impression.
Hey, Cole Aldrich, you like apples? Yeah? Well, how do you like them apples? Kansas Jayhawk center Cole Aldrich was victimized by Marquis Gilstrap twice on vicious dunks during yesterday’s matchup between Iowa State and Kansas. Sure, the Jayhawks easily won the war 84-61, but in the long run, that detail will be forgotten. On the other hand, the battle will be remembered because a posterization is forever.

Denis Savard is extremely pleased that a his trademark “Spin-o-Rama” made the list a couple of times. News flash: the life of the hockey goalie is hard enough without being forced to participate in a glorified exhibition. Above are the top 10 most creative shootout goals, according to SportsCentre (that’s the Canuckistani version of SportsCenter for you xenophobes). All of these are awesome, but a few are absolutely mind-blowing. Enjoy. [Total Pro Sports]
This impression is “turrible,” but in the best way possible. Sure, Charles Barkley looked like an ill-informed moron when he ignorantly ripped on bloggers earlier this week, but despite that I will always have a soft spot for the Round Mound of Rebound. Here’s Orlando Magic superstar Dwight Howard absolutely nailing Sir Chuck’s tone and manner of speaking. Just brilliant. [Ball Don't Lie]
