Van Pelt has always been fantastic and his re-imagining of the midnight SportsCenter proves the show still has cultural currency in capable hands. He’s able to tap into those old-school sentimentalities and fuse it with a thorough understanding of what works in 2022. His essays are poignant and resonate and he’s usually at his best when he’s unabashedly human.
