Chris Berman Gets His Star

chrisbermanFrom Awful Announcing comes this press release about the newest celebrities to receive Stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and mixed in among such luminaries as Adam Sandler, James Cameron, Russell Crowe and Jon Cryer is ESPN’s own Chris Berman. Boomer, who has become almost completely unwatchable — both because of his AWFUL hair plugs and his inane nicknaming act that has become staler than stale — and is practically a caricature of himself at this point certainly has been on television for a long time, I just wish they could specify his star was “earned” for his work in the 80s and early 90s before he became so full of himself. Anyhoo, here’s the full press release:

NY Fans Remain the Absolute Classiest

With the All Star game in Yankee Stadium, and everyone in the media falling over themselves to wax poetic about the stadium and the Yankees, the fans in the stadium are doing their part to show why they’re douchebags.

Last night when Chase Utley was introduced he was lustily booed, now granted it was likely Mets fans that were booing him, but fuck it, they’re all from New York, and it was still stupid. Here’s Chase’s reaction to getting booed. Don’t worry ChUtley, you’re still totally boss in my book, now keep cranking those homers for my fantasy team.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Last night’s Home Run Derby was some kind of cruel endurance test as ESPN put Joe Morgan and Chris Berman together as the announcers. I’m pretty sure that can be considered torture under the American Code of Military Justice. I hope they had the TVs tuned in over at Guantanamo. All I know is that after the pure analysis Joe provided, plus my ears ringing from “BACK BACK BACK, it falls just beyond the infield,” that I came super close to stabbing a screwdriver into my ear canals.
