Top 10 YouTubes of 2023

It’s time for my annual posting of the Top 10 YouTube Videos of the Year (see last year’s list here). This ranking is totally unscientific, and I gave up on limiting myself to 10 videos a long time ago. Only one person was polled to compile this list—yours truly. This year’s slate of videos has both humor and humanity with some other odds and ends thrown in. If you think I’ve left something out, let me know. I’ll think about adding an “Honorable Mention” category at the bottom. I usually start with the humor, but don’t miss the non-humorous ones at the end. Enjoy!

If you’re interested, here are links to lists from previous years:

A tennis player gets emotional after losing his match in the French Open. His son runs to him at the end of the match. The crowd roars approval. Even the winning player lost it.

Jayden Daniels Wins the Heisman

Jayden Daniels won the Heisman in 2023. Here are my two favorite plays from his historic season. In his epic 85-yard run for a touchdown against Florida, he clocked a top speed of 21.8 mph. What an incredible player.

Taylor and Travis Sitting in a Tree…

Well, 2023 will be remembered for Taylor Swift’s entry into football fandom. Here’s a clip of her first appearance at one of her new boyfriend’s games. Some epic memes came out of this one.
