There is one thing every sports fan understands and that’s we need more Chris Berman in our lives. His postgame Super Bowl coverage was the thing of legends.
Berman appeared to have had a little too much to drink and instead of costing him his job at ESPN, a job he’s had since 1979, WEEI announced he’ll be covering Red Sox games this season.
Via Mass Live:
ESPN broadcasters Chris Berman and Sean McDonough will be among Joe Castiglione’s partners in the WEEI booth for Red Sox broadcasts this season, according to an announcement from the station. WEEI will employ a committee of partners for Castiglione to replace Tim Neverett, who left after last season.
Berman, who has been with ESPN since 1979, and McDonough, who was the Sox’ play-by-play announcer from 1998 to 2004, will be joined by former Mets announcer Josh Lewin and former Tigers broadcaster Mario Impemba in the rotation. Familiar names like Lou Merloni, Dale Arnold, Tom Caron and Dave O’Brien will also fill in on some broadcasts.
This makes a ton of sense. Some of the best baseball announcers of all-time have been known to enjoy a drink or two during games.
Hopefully we get a few obnoxious “back, back, back” calls from Berman.
