If you’re like me, you’ve certainly experienced a “YouTube loop” – that is to say, a time when you find yourself on YouTube for much longer than you’d planned, having clicked on video after video, and wondering, “How did I get here?”. This is our weekly segment where we share some of our favorite sports highlights that you may not have seen (or haven’t in a very long time). Feel free to share your favorites in the comments or tweet us and we’ll consider them for next week. Check back every Tuesday for the latest edition.
This week, we’ve got a few awesome interview clips:
Ali G Interviews NBA Players
If you’re not familiar with Ali G, you should be. He’s one of the characters portrayed by Sacha Baron Cohen (the guy that did Borat and Bruno).

Jim “Chris” Everett confronts Jim Rome
In this video classic, smarmy, loudmouth sports talk show host Jim Rome pushes his luck with former NFL quarterback Jim Everett. Apparently Jim had a habit of calling Jim Everett “Chris Everett”, the female tennis star. Jim knew this going into the interview and called Jim Rome on it.

I’m not sure how big Jim Rome is, but I know he isn’t near the 6’5”, 212 pound Everett, so you can guess who came out with the upper hand here. Rome has an uncanny resemblance to the male porn star known as the MILF Hunter(image SFW) and the ability to be annoying about basically anything he talks about. Now if we could only get Skip Bayless to call Ron Artest some names…
