Happy Birthday Carl Lewis! Your National Anthem Still Overshadows Your Track and Field Greatness
Carl Lewis is one of the most decorated Olympic athlete of all time. His ten total medals puts him towards the top of most medals all time. And his NINE GOLD MEDALS put him in second, behind only the human fish Michael Phelps, who has TWENTY THREE gold medals.
Sadly though, for Carl Lewis, most people probably remember him for his botched National Anthem, and not his amazing Olympic accomplishments. And just in case you need a refresher, here is Lewis'... um... National Anthem...
The best part about that clip though, might not be Carl Lewis completely butchering the National Anthem, but Charley Steiner absolutely losing it on camera. So on that note, here is another clip for you to enjoy today, and it's some of the best outtakes from ESPN through the years. Which at this point, is pretty much the only time ESPN is watchable.
