Neil Everett and Jay Harris have a silence contest to close out SportsCenter

We’ve chronicled before some of the odd things that can occur as SportsCenter rolls their credits and theme music. Last night’s SportsCenter broke new ground as the usually loud/chatty Neil Everett and Jay Harris opted to go in a different direction. 


 

Everett seems a bit more stone faced than Harris who looks as if the jig is about to make him fall out of his chair laughing. Harris doesn’t give in and remains quiet despite an odd look by the already goofy Everett. If only we could get more of this type of programming on shows like First Take.

I’m curious if this irks ESPN as usually the closing dozen or so seconds plugs other ESPN programs or upcoming events, or dives into some comedic banter. With a silent movie winning best picture, perhaps we’re seeing a new trend in media?
