I have been as big a critic of Chris Berman as anyone. Well, when I consider myself bored enough to pretend I give a shit about him, that is. I find his very presence on ESPN these days cringe-worthy. I’m sure women who don’t pay attention to stuff still love him, but as someone who watches kind of a lot of sports, I simply click the channel when he’s on. I can’t be any harsher than that. Luckily, NFL Network’s game day coverage has become must see TV, so I can usually avoid Boomer and his sour-puss cohort/butt buddy Tom Jackson.
I gotta give him some props on the awesome new ‘stache. Even though he, himself, invoked the increasingly sacred name of Ron Burgundy in his own ‘stachetroduction, I still like it. It won’t get me to watch ESPN on Sunday mind you, but at least I won’t shoot out the TV Elvis-style when he comes on anymore. For a few weeks.
