Is it just me, or does Chris Berman come across as angry in this clip:

That's beautiful. I can't stand him. Ever see him clowning at Pebble Beach like he's one of comedians? Sickening.
The funniest thing is when he gets pissed doing the NFL draft. He gets infuriated when someone talks over one of his precious punchlines.

Also, I hate it when Rick Suttcliffe calls him "Boomer" 87 times during a broadcast.

Boomer, your 15 minutes are over. Retire already.

In that clip, Chris Berman reminds me of Tony Soprano.

Wow, what a jackass. Talk about the overreaction of the century.

ESPN has requested that youtube take down a bunch of Berman videos including the one above, the one where he talks about buying drugs up in Canada and more. Check them all out at http://deadspin.com/355926/espn-reacts-to-berman-videos-takes-them-down-off-youtube-but-worry-not

Can you really buy aspirin with codein over the counter in Canada? I had no idea.

Funny stuff.

I'm not much of a Berman fan - his act has gotten a little tired. However, I find that piece to be absolutely hilarious. How many times have I wanted to vent like that about mindless idiots...

Incidentally, it looks like that video clip is 8 years old based on the graphic. 30 Years of Monday Night Football 1970-2000.

The video is very funny. Makes me wonder how many other times that has happened for if others have done it.

Stewart Scott: "I'm a Tarheel...You guys are acting like F***ing Blue Devils. Is this amateur hour?"

Craig Kilborn: "You guys are F***ing morons...You are making it so much easier to go do a Comedy Central show. I've got 5 questions for you and they all go like this, 'Which one of you is the dumbest and unprofessional of all?'"

Keith Olberman: "F*** YOU ALL...I'm going to MSNBC"

Jay Bilas: "F*** you...you all don't belong here like Xavier didn't deserve to get in over Syracuse."

Dick Vitale: "You are not a diaper dandy...you are not a PTPer...you are a worthless Prime Time S**tter...This crap is definitely super scintillating sensational!"

Lee Corso: "Just get me the god**** mascot head."

That was actually pretty funny. I agree w/ everyone. I wish no one woudl hire this guy. He's not good and he brings nothing to the table other than his overused and not funny names.

ESPN is losing me big time......Dana Jacobson, Chris Berman, Mark May, Skip Bayless, assorted others. I'd like to see them lose more games to other networks. Just too big for their own good.

If Buckeye fans hate Mark May, he must be good in my book. Ditto for Skip Bayless, although he missed the boat in regards to St. Joe's 4 years ago.

ND'ers hate May, I'm not sure why tOSU fans would.

I don't mind May. Not a big Bayless fan though. Berman was fine way back when, when ESPN started. It was such a novelty that we didn't really care who was on, and Berman actually seemed just fine for the job. But now he is in way over his head on the talent scale. He is not very good at it.

Now you're making me nostalgic for those days I was addicted to Tylenol 3.

Blah Blah, "He might go all the way", Back (repeat 20x) and "Classy and/or classless" should all be retired.

But 'You're with me leather is still one of the all time greats" (Google it)
