Keith Olbermann returned to SportsCenter last night for the first time in over 15 years, delivering an essay on Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez.  After the show returned to the Bristol set, anchor John Buccigross gave a random, yet awesome shoutout to former SportsCenter anchor Bill Pidto.

That sent a strange warming sense of nostalgia through those of us who fondly remember the good old days of SportsCenter.  But just how well do you remember those days of yore?  Can you recall the many catchphrases that were iconic parts of yesteryear?  Can you distinguish past catchphrases from those used currently?  If you dare, take our Ultimate SportsCenter Catchphrase Quiz and see if you can match the anchor to the catchphrase.  Will you throw it down "with authority" or will you suffer from "the whiffffff"…..
