On Friday, Chris Berman’s “Two Minute Drill” focused on ” who else? ” Chris Berman. The same old clips of Berman being tackled by some Bucs, catching a toss from Tom Brady, playing golf.
But give Berman credit. Few of us could summon the gall to so to so consistently and shamelessly exploit sports to promote himself to a national audience.
Other than Joe Buck, Steve Lyons, Tom Arnold or countless others who’ve been employed by Phil’s bosses, I can’t think of anyone else guilty of exploiting sports to promote themseleves to a national audience.
I’m certain that if ABC/Disney owned the NY Post instead of News Corp., Phil would still continue to slam ESPN at every available opportunity, such is his journalistic integrity.
