This Post Is For Me

Because my therapist told me I should post it and take six hydrocodones with a pitcher of rum and coke. This clip happened last night. I was actually walking across my living room when it stopped me down and sucked the life force out of me. It's really no big deal other than it is Exhibit A as to why I hate ESPN's Chris Berman. In it, he narrates the famous 1982 kick off return between Cal and Stanford and then . . . it happened. He started doing his stupid 'Whooop!" What's that? Think "waterboarding." Only worse. He's been doing that crap for 20+ years and he still thinks its funny. He actually prepared for the clip and thought, "Hey, that 'whoop' thing I do will absolutely kill during this clip. People out there will love it!" Now if I can only manage this child proof cap . . . .

He's merely trying to be unique in a pretty competitive business. Howard Coselle was annoying as heck too, but still very good.

Thanks for posting this. I saw the same thing last night and almost pulled an Elvis and shot my teevee out. Chris Berman, let the original audio play you egotistical bastard, cuz it says it all. I wonder how he could "improve" a clip of The Hindenburg Disaster.

Berman is a three trick pony.

1. "Whoop" worked once - with Barry Sanders.

2. "Back Back Back" Sucks, Sucks SUCKS. Especially at home run derbies. STFU!

3. His Nicknames have been occassionally creative. Very occassionally.

Chris B. does a great job of recapping the highlights. Come on B. Green, give him a break.

Berman has out-lived his silly nicknames and pseudo-intellectual blathering. Retire him along with Chris Shenkle, Dick Vitale, Dick Enberg and a bunch of other over-exposed sports people - along with their sideline sex bunnies. Why not let us view the event and draw our own conclusions?

go to the WCM website where all the videous are and look at the alvord/peaster playoff game. a little more than halfay through is a priceless moment of ball meets face/girls stumbles like she got hit my mike tyson.
