Popular sports commentary seems to be dominated by windbags and silly pundits. What are some recordings of tight, insightful commentary? No sport preference or even activity preference if you've a good recommendation from another field.

Please help me find examples of athletes who did something completely counterintuitive in terms of the sport (so seemingly wrong) and won because of it. I'm especially looking for those moments that have been captured on video. [more inside]

I am a big baseball fan. I will watch every game on TV that I can regardless of the teams playing (although I am a Yankee fan and Pirates fan 2nd.)
I have noticed after a player strikes out, the camera often shows them looking back at what I thought was the pitcher as if to say, "I'll show you next time" or "That junk won't fool me next time" or whatever you want to assume. Then it occurred to me that they could be looking at the Jumbotron to see the pitch. [more inside]

What are some great, classic (pre-1975, for the sake of argument) American football games I can watch, online or through Netflix? Assume I haven't seen them and avoid spoiling the outcome, if possible. [more inside]

So between Netflix streaming and AppleTV I'm considering dropping cable entirely. Pretty much the only thing holding me back is football. How do you all watch sports? Caveat: I don't have a local sports bar nearby, and honestly I'd rather not spend all day Sunday in a bar.
