The Top 7 Sports Show Themes

Have you not seen the YouTube video of John Tesh performing "Roundball Rock," AKA the "NBA on NBC" theme song, live at Red Rocks?

On said video the Teshster -- we've been known to give away *free* tickets to Tesh in concert -- plays the original answering machine recording he left himself when he was originally thinking of the tune. It's a funky rendition to say the least.

Why do we bring this up? Because it's clearly one of the best sports theme songs ever written. And "Roundball Rock," along with six other songs, is included in this Friday link-out to InsideSTL, who published this list.
