It’s no secret that we have no love for ESPN and their so-called brand of “journalism” here at Total Packers.
That is, with the exception of Erin Andrews, Rachel Nichols and Hannah Storm, who are some hot fucking broads whose lips may or may not be moving. And yeah, I know Hannah Storm is in her late 40s. I don’t give a shit. She still looks good, but isn’t the point here.
What is the point, are a couple of major ESPN Fail! moments from the opening round of the NFL Draft, last night, that were too funny for me not to point out.
The first involves Chris “Aircraft Carrier” Berman, who is violently waving his bratwurst-sized index finger at someone. The moment took place while the NFL was honoring our nation’s servicemen and women on the stage at Radio City Music Hall. ESPN showed the honorees briefly and then cut back to Berman, Tom Jackson and crew. Apparently, Berman didn’t think too much of the draft’s director cutting back to him and the talking heads while the U.S. armed forces were being honored. Either that, or he and the gang weren’t ready.
Either way, Berman’s reaction to the miscue is worth a laugh.
This came to us via Midwest Sports Fans. If you’re interested, you can see a longer version of the video there.
The second infraction on the evening belonged to Jon Gruden, who is caught reading a text he received containing the word “dumbass” to Mel Kiper as the camera cuts back to him and the other talking heads. Kiper nearly falls out of his chair laughing while Berman comes in for the save.
And for good measure, here’s a little Hannah Storm for you.
Monty McMahon is one of the founders of Total Packers. He is probably the most famous graduate of UW-Oshkosh next to Jim Gantner.
