To end the incredible HARDBALL 8th anniversary week, the Hardball staff presented Chris Matthews a surprise tribute from someone he often talks about on his show— Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Here are the top eight reasons why everyone should watch Hardball, courtesy of New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton: 

#8.  Jay Leno and I both think you‘re a middle-aged heartthrob. 

#7. You brought dueling back to politics, where it belongs. 

#6. No steroids in your version of Hardball. 

#5. Hardball, where the nuclear option is used every night. 

#4. Bill and I watch you for your calming and soothing effect. 

#3. MSNBC should stand for Must See Nothing But Chris.

#2. Desperate House members are always more interesting than “Desperate Housewives.” 

#1. And the number one reason to watch Hardball? Hardball has only been on the air for eight years. It feels like 100.
