Chris Berman, born in Greenwhich, Connecticut (go figure), has been the face of ESPN for the last 30 years. Some people, (I haven't met one yet) love him, and many hate him. I fall into the second category. The guy is as obnoxious and arrogant as they come, and after you read this article, you too will see that there is no denying how much of a jerk he is.
Below is a clip of the lovable ?Swami?going off on some poor people who work at the ESPN studio...
Talk about a bastard, he thinks he is all high and mighty because he makes the worst football picks in the history of picks. The guy makes Pele look like a savant with his soccer predictions. Whenever I see the ?Swami? section of the pre-game football show, I immediately plug my ears. I do not want to be corrupted by his utter lack of knowledge and false bravado.
Another thing, why and how does he always cover the home run derby? His ?back, back back, back goneeeeeee!?, is one of the more redundant things in life. He's been doing it for as long as I can remember, can't he come up with anything even slightly more original?
I saw this post on a ?I hate Chris Berman? facebook group. Evidently I'm not the only one. ?From his jokey nickname jokes that were mildly amusing 25 years ago, to his personal highlights to his belief that he is actually part of the NFL... I hate Chris Berman.?
