What is your favorite sportscenter commercial?
Steve Levy (7:04 PM)
hey big pete, great way to start my first ever chat with what i get asked about most, the sportscenter promos...ahh, so many great ones to choose from...i liked the one where roger clemens threw jack edwards out the window...as for the ones i've been in...me and LT in the mail room was fun, he was great to work with...but i got the most acclaim for dancing on a meeting room table while trying out new end zone celebrations for chad johnson...
How did you first get started working at SportsCenter?
Steve Levy (7:07 PM)
joe, you're not the guy who owns the stone crabs restaurant?... love that place in miami...as for my start on espn, i was working in nyc at wfan radio and wcbs-tv doing 4 days on radio and 2 days a week on tv and wanted to go full time tv...really wanted to stay in nyc because i grew up there but cbs thought i was too young to be the #1 guy there and espn called twice...my agent told me they wouldnt come back a third time so i left for bristol...15 years later, it was the best move of my life...

STEVE! when will we see some NHL on ESPN?
Steve Levy (7:08 PM)
love the hockey question from south carolina...as far as i'm concerned, that day cant come fast enough...reality is probably a couple of years away...

Do you think the Indians will be an elite team in the American League next year.
Steve Levy (7:10 PM)
easy ermerson, i know how well the tribe has been playing lately but it's alot easier to play well when all the pressure is off as it is now and has been for most of the season...i think they'll be more competitive next season but elite is a stretch...
Lets be honest, do you tape your sportscenter's at home on the TiVo, then go home and watch them just to admire yourself?
Steve Levy (7:12 PM)
honest is i never had to tape them since they re-aired all day the next day but this whole sportscenter live in the am has messed that up for me...so i have to figure out a new plan
ROB (TOLEDO, OH)
I SAY TAMPA IS NOT READY AND WILL FOLD IN THE PLAYOFFS....
Steve Levy (7:14 PM)
might be true but there is no shame in losing in the playoffs...just making the playoffs is quite the accomplishment for the rays...good for them...would be nice if some people showed up at their home games...13,000 last night, not right...
Do you think that the MLB should of waited til the Pre-season for the instant replay?
Steve Levy (7:17 PM)
juan, i do...mlb is far too big an entity to start changing rules mid-season, i could see other fledgling leagues doing something like that to improve the product but i dont the see the harm in mlb waiting to start using instant replay in spring training when everyone has time to digest the whole process...john kruk said it last night, suppose a team lost a game earlier in the season because of a blown home run call and they miss the playoffs by a game...could happen...again, nobody would've blinked if they said lets just start it next season...

How has being an anchor on sports center changed you as person?
Steve Levy (7:20 PM)
aj, love champaign, did a ton of illini games when i was doing college football...anyway, dont think it's really changed me...my best proof is that i'm still tight with friends from 4th grade...ask them and they'll say i wasnt that good a guy back then, so i'm consistent...and if it has changed me, i'd like to think its for the better...others might disagree...

The Atlanta Falcons seem like they have it under control with Matt Ryan. Do you think Ryan will struggle or have a break out year?
Steve Levy (7:23 PM)
can you have a break out year in your first year?...history shows us that all rookie starting qbs in the nfl struggle...the question is how much...and i believe you have to have a mediocre season or 2 before you can have a break out year
How do you think the people who made the decsion not to let that little picther play, are handleing all this national press about them?
Steve Levy (7:25 PM)
i think they're wishing that poor little kid was playing in somebody else's league...the whole thing handled just terribly...really feel for the kid...
should i pick arian peterson or steven jackson for my fantasy team?
Steve Levy (7:26 PM)
Who will win the 2009 Stanley cup?
Steve Levy (7:27 PM)
tampa bay lightning
Seth Johnson Minnesota
Why are there so many NFL pre-season games, it just leads to injury's?
Steve Levy (7:29 PM)
the only people who enjoy 4 or 5 pre season games are the owners...huge money maker for them...terrible rip off for the ticket buying public
will peyton manning play week 1
Steve Levy (7:30 PM)
yes, not so sure about jeff saturday
How can i get my little brother to watch sports like me?
Steve Levy (7:33 PM)

Steve Levy (7:34 PM)
