    Chris Berman is all that is wrong with sports broadcasters. He took shock sports radio juvenile shtick and put it on TV, and the public is worse for it.

    Also a 49er fan. Strike two (in my book).

    Speaking of OC restaurants, did you ever frequent The Fish Co. in Los Alamitos?

    I remember you sharing that story....how disgusting.

    I've always heard he was a POS in real life and I am not surprised.

    I can't stand that announcing style.

    When I tune into watch a college basketball game and Dick Vitale is on air, I mute it immediately.

    bullshit about the best atheletes
    that has nothing to do with baseball
    that mindset is what almost killed baseball
    and what perennially plagues the game

    baseball is not about athletics
    sure we love to see the guy diving for the ball and making the great catch
    or the big lumberjacks in the yankee OF smashing balls all over the stands
    but that has and will always exist in baseball
    we dont need every team to have a team full of them

    i have extensive successful business experience running the first sports social media site of the modern era
    so take my advice like you would any other successful businessman
    you talking bullshit son
    thats how you got americas passtime selling ped's to children
    we dont do that
    let the nba's do that
    the mlb's sell playing the right way

    fun yes, selling out no.
    just fuck with the baseballs, the mound, the rules, the zone, etc... till you get the desired TV product you want
    but you don't sell out the game for a quick cash grab that you think is the future that is just one more future currently in fashion
    and even if it was the future
    you don't sell out for it like if it was something to cash in
    they have to take it from your cold dead hands
    because its worth way more than than the billions made off it
    because its it
    and once you sell it you will be left asking yourself... what is it?

    What we know as ancient europeans used to be young asians.
    That is why the more 'refined' the european the less the L is pronounced.
    Because that is how the emperor likes it and how the power of his orange court of mandarins compels.

    Oh yeah. Great place. Underrated. Not sure if it survived the pandemic though.

    Yeah ... Dan Patrick always speaks of Berman like the guy is Scully East,
    and while I like Dan Patrick, it speaks against him that he speaks so glowingly of Berman.

    I'm not a fan of the guy, but when Vitale's on the air, at least I hear a guy who really loves basketball announcing the sport. Berman has the sound of somebody who loves himself and uses the sport and his position as an announcer he gild his own reputation. Screw that fat bastard.


    @irish is going to get you for this one....

    My Garden Grove bro in law has worked there for years (also works for Disney). I don't think it's closed.

    Yeah, he's a real ass from what I have heard. His co-hosts have had issues with him from what I've heard.

    What is weird is how, given YouTube and social media and the cancel culture ... and what I've experienced about the guy in person, and dozens of common criticisms of his assholish behavior ... how he's kept his job at that Woke establishment. It seems everyone else has been fired there or died before they would be. Berman rolls on. Go figure.

    Bob Ley retired two years ago & Rich Eisen left a long while ago. Karl Ravetch is still there ... they were pretty good. Too bad more sportscasters don't take their approach.
