Jon StewartThe Jon Stewart era — on “The Daily Show,” at least — is just about over.

The longtime host of the Comedy Central “news” program will step aside after hosting one final show Thursday night. It figures to be an emotional night, as Stewart wraps up a run as host that started all the way back in 1999.

Along the way, Stewart has tackled all of the big issues, from 9/11 to the ensuing wars to multiple president elections and on and on and on. Occasionally, Stewart dabbled in sports, especially if his beloved New York Mets were involved. A lot of times, Stewart’s sports segments centered around social issues, but other times, it was just to point out how ridiculous a certain story could be.

Regardless, as was the case for everything Stewart did on “The Daily Show,” the segments were well done and thought-provoking. Here are some of his best relating to sports.
