I am not saying that Strasburg's debut was not different, because it certainly was. But the national television angle is not that strong to me. I am sure that was not the only game they had on MLB Network in 2010.
And I don't know who was the lead story on Sportscenter, I am guessing it was probably Manning. But if there was not a first-ballot hall-of-famer making his return off of a major injury yesterday, RGIII probably would have been the lead story as well.

Both were fantastic performances that will be remembered for quite some time, but I have to go with RGIII.
