SportsCenter Mocks Soccer Diving

As we all know, diving is one of the most reviled tactics in sports.  The outcry over Charlie Davies’ flop that may have cost RSL three points on Saturday, and the much more muted hand-wringing over a possible Jermaine Jones dive on Sunday, has the concept of soccer players falling with minimal contact becoming a talking point for many in the sports media.

And, as they do so well, ESPN has taken a hot topic and run with it to promote their brand.  SportsCenter commercials have always been highly entertaining, and this one is no different.  Not only is diving mocked, but US women’s national team player Abby Wambach makes a guest appearance (just in time for the Women’s World Cup).

Take a look and enjoy.  Hat tip to Kckrs.com and WVHooligan for discovering it.
