At all great sporting events there will always be some decisive and crucial moments – and the outcomes of these moments will be immortalized in highlights. Whether it is the Wimbledon, Formula 1, Tour de France, Olympic Games, Super Bowl or the World Cup there will with certainty be some great – victorious or defeats – moments. If you need to relive some of the great ones we recommend this ESPN montage.
Highlights can be used for many things: one can reminisce great moments with favorite stars and teams, one can find inspiration that can lead to action, and one can ponder about the outcome of these events. What if the great moment hadn’t happened the way it did? What if Payton Manning hadn’t thrown that interception in the Super Bowl, or what if Diego Maradona had been caught using his (or God’s) hand in the World Cup in 1986? Unfortunately we can’t give you the answer because in sports it is mostly the small differences and margins that are the decisive factor of the outcome. Who know what would have happened just after? It is still fun to ponder though, and Nike has used this idea in their World Cup advert that is nothing less than impressive. It is studded with references to: television shows, other celebrities, other athletes, YouTube sensations and the stereotype of nationalities.
We are looking very much forward to this year’s highlights!
