Sports News Without Fear, Favor or Compromise

After sharing this Thursday night, many of you shared your favorite weird local commercials with athletes. We've ranked some of them.


(Note: The Mario Lemieux ad found by wormwalkweek, seen above, will not be ranked, because it is just too creepy and isn't really a local commercial, but a game promo. These are time-tested, absolute rules, so do not debate them. The Lemieux ad is an automatic Hall of Famer, though.)
