Vine was the greatest thing for sports highlights

There have been many times that I was not watching a certain game but through all the updates on my Twitter feed, something amazing just happened. What happened? I wasn’t near a TV or had no option to change the channel.

Within a minute, the highlight would be on Twitter. No nonsense, no unnecessary stuff. Vine gave me the six second highlight I needed. It looped so I could watching over and over again without having to click on anything extra.

With Vine’s death coming, I am saddened about the loss of one of the greatest things to happen to sports and the Internet. I don’t know what the next tool would be but we had something special with sports Vines. Farewell sports Vine. You were perfect for our short attention spans and our desire for immediate gratification.
