Highlights

Two things...

Highlights #9 and #3 both came from the last six seconds of regulation in the Celtics-Heat game last night, and the ending is amazing.  Catch them both.

Secondly, it's interesting to me that ESPN's top ten plays of the day rarely include all ten when I catch them online.  I wonder whether they have some sort of rights issue to show the highlights on cable but not over the internet.

Tonight, for example, there's no #10 or #4...weird...

interesting, i know for a fact (from watching it every day of high school at lunch junior and senior years) that they always show all 10 on TV. I would have to guess it is a rights issue with certain broadcasters, probably those that keep highlights on their own webspace.

Nice job, Jet...it's interesting to me, the subtleties of the rights and acquisitions that ESPN has to go through to show all the clips.
