Sports Of 2000 Broadcast

Thanks,____ . With the turn into the new millennium came countless legendary sports headlines. No time to waste! Let’s get right into it and see how many you remember…
(Sports intro)
Here are just a few of the top sports headlines you missed in the year 2000…
After both going 13-3 in the regular season and getting through the playoffs virtually unscathed, the St. Louis Rams and Tennessee Titans started off the millennium with a bang in Super Bowl XXIV (34). After a defensively intense 1st half, the Rams were holding on to a slim 9-0 lead over Steve McNair and the Titans. Things were taken up a notch in the second half: After a quick touchdown reception by Rams wideout Torry Holt to put St. Louis up 16, Titans Running back Eddie George made things interesting with 2 rushing touchdowns to put the score at 16-13 with just minutes left in the 4th. After a late Titans FG to tie the game up, Rams QB Kurt Warner sent a 73-yard bomb out to Isaac Bruce to put the Rams back on top. With one last desperation drive, the Titans made their final stand on the Rams’ 10 yard line. After dishing the ball to Eddie George, the powerful Ram D stopped George’s run at the 1 yard line – literally inches from the goal line. The rams ended up taking the game, with a young Kurt Warner taking the MVP Title.
The dynasty of the NBA that is the Los Angeles Lakers got its jump start in the Year 2000, taking its first of several NBA titles in this decade against the Indiana Pacers. NBA Hall of famer and Lakers General Manager Jerry West wasted little time improving his squad after losing to the San Antonio Spurs in 1999, but surrounding the dynamic duo of Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neill with the experience of Ron Harper, Glen Rice and the legendary coach: Phil Jackson. With so much talent on one team, it was almost unfair to the Pacers as basketball fans watched the Lakers stomp the Pacers in 6 games. The 7’1 monster Shaquille O’Neill won the MVP

With Summer in high gear, and 2000 being an even-numbered year, it can only mean one thing – The Olympics! Held in Sydney Australia this time around, the 2000 Summer Olympics had countless highlights and memories. Here are just a few of them:
·   USA’s Maurice Green took the title of World’s Fastest Man in the 100m, posting a scorching time of 9.87 seconds to take the gold
·   USA’s Marion Jones took the Gold for Womens 100m, but she was later stripped of her title due to allegations of doping prior to the race back in 2007.
·   Overall, in an Olympiad filled with scandals and multiple confirmed uses of Performance-Enhancing Drugs, The USA still won the overall medal count with 16 total medals, 7 of which were gold.
Oh, but we’re not done yet! Here are a few quick headlines in the sporting world of 2000:
·   The Oklahoma Sooners brought home the BCS Championship Title on New Years Day
·   Michigan State and Tom Izzo tore apart the Florida Gators 89-76 in the 2000 NCAA March Madness Tournament
·   Legendary Golfer Tiger Woods became the first player in 50 years to win 3 major tournaments in one year.
·   Lance Armstrong won the Tour De France…again.
·   The New Jersey Devils defeated the Dallas Starts to take home the 2000 Stanely Cup
·   October was owned by Baseball’s New York Yankees, as they tore through the playoffs, finally taking the World Series title by defeating the Mets in 5 games

That’s all from me and the world of 2000 sports. Tune in next time and we’ll take a look into the first official year of the millennium: 2001.
Anyways, lets get back to our countdown: Before Beyonce made it big in the solo artist world, she was the lead member of Destiny’s child. Along with Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, Destiny’s Child rocked the turn of the century with songs such as “Bug a Boo” and “Jumpin Jumpin”. This particular song hit the top of the Billboard hot 100 as well as charts in Austrailia and the United Kingdom.
Enough stalling! Here is the #3 song of the year 2000: Destiny’s Child – Say My Name (play song)
