''[=SportsCenter=]'' truly rocketed to national prominence in the early 1990s, when the 11 p.m. broadcast was anchored by Dan Patrick and Creator/KeithOlbermann (yes, ''[[HeAlsoDid that]]'' [[Series/CountdownWithKeithOlbermann Keith]] [[WebVideo/TheResistanceWithKeithOlbermann Olbermann]]). The two were smart, witty and cultured and they introduced a brand of cutting humor to the broadcast that made it must-see TV. Some of the scenes in ''SportsNight'' (and indeed arguably the characters) are references to this--including the "left off the letter 's' in 'bulging disk'" bit. Of course, on ''[=SportsCenter=]'', nobody caught it before airing... to make the connection between real live and fiction even more bizarre, Olbermann did a Sports Night skit with actor Josh Charles on his ESPN show ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Olbermann]]''. He even said "If Creator/AaronSorkin had written this script, [[LampshadeHanging you wouldn't have believed it"]]. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w69xRClOwCo Here's the link]].
