A Sports Baron Exclusive by Al Davis, Jr.
Cameras caught a slimmer – albeit slightly – Chris Berman at this year’s MLB All-Star game. Rumors abound that the NFL Primetime vet will start hawking Nutrisystem. In the blogosphere, Berman’s pitchman gig set of the latest round of Berman Bashing. Check out the commenters on The Big Lead’s Nutrisystem post.
It is no secret that Berman is a pompous bully. Yes, he is corpulent. No, he’s not the prodigy he thinks he is. Yes, Boomer is an ass. No, he hasn’t said anything innovative since we asked the barber to cut our hair like Zach Morris’.
Yes, sweat from rimming Brett Favre probably trickles over Berman’s neck fat into his pilose, ottoman-sized ass.
But I digress. Give the guy a break. Who doesn’t like Berman and Tom Jackson frothing at the mouth over highlights? I’ve heard it 1,000 times, but I laugh when he says ‘the frozen tundra of Laaaaambauuuuuu Fieeeeeeeeld,’ the ‘Raaaaaaaaaidas’ or ‘Rumblin’, bumblin’, stumblin’!!’ Don’t you?
