He Could Go All the Way... Or Maybe Not

If you're as tired of fathead ESPN announcer Chris Berman as me you'll find the embarrassing batch of behind-the-scenes footage of Mr. Wacky Nickname equally delicious. Normally I'd save sports-related pop culture ramblings for the ER blog, but since one clip features Berman pontificating about wine while he pathetically hits on some staffer I couldn't help but post a link here.

Updated 2/22/08: No surprise here. ESPN had YouTube pull the videos and released a statement assuring us that the videos "do not reflect [Berman's] typical workplace demeanor, his relationships with co-workers, nor the contributions he has made to ESPN over many years. Chris has a tremendous connection with sports fans and his body of work should not be judged by a few minutes of unguarded language uttered years ago..." I guess that means you can't see the videos? No, wait, here they are.
