Anybody else catch what just happened on Sportscenter? I was less-than-half paying attention, but I think Berman was starting his Top 10 plays segment...and all of a sudden I hear him say...

"...just let me start over." or something to that effect.

The show cuts out for about three seconds and goes to commercial.

:shrug:

he was starting his top ten plays, but it looked like they were showing the bengals highlights instead.

I was watching ESPN news and they were showing highlights of the Chiefs/Donks game, then it cut to an interview with John Browning(maybe) but it said Eric hicks at the bottom. I never knew Hicks was a black man?

I remember years ago when Berman first started sucking. He was funny for about 3 days but why is he still on the air?

Would've been cooler if he cursed a bit and then asked for his rub-down

Really? I came out of the womb thinking the guy sucked.

Good question. His annoying ass sound effects make watching NFL primetime pretty difficult.

Great question. This Top 10 segment sucks too. Who the hell cars about the Edmonton Eskimo's CFL Championship or Portland/UCLA women's soccer? (Plays No. 5 and No. 4.)

I seem to remember him being kind of good ten years ago. Though it may have just be that it was a while ago and he has gotten progressivly more annoying as the years have passed.

Someone probably put in the wrong tape. I remember watching CNN in the middle of the night one night and the weather guy started doing his schtick, messed up, then got visibly angry and threw his clicker down before walking off the set screaming about how he'd had enough of it. Was almost as good as the satellite feed from the first Iraq War with Dan Rather going to commercial and then turning to yell at his producer to get them to stop having the fighters take off during his segments. Really quite funny.

The fans revolted when the ESPN tried to fire him.

Whoooooop!!!!ROFL

I think that just cemented you as my choice for Newb of the Year-and-a-Half.

Berman went on to say, "I've gotta go to the bathroom! Can I go?"

That was a rather odd event with Berman. I couldn't figure out what they were trying to accomplish.
