Why in hell is he covering the US Open? He sounds even more like an idiot out there than usual.

It's the US frickin' Open, ESPN can't get a real golf commentator?

I was a little surprised but he has done it for years and isn't doing too bad. He keeps doing the names, though. :-P

i think berman has tenure, so they can't fire him...

I think Chris Berman has far out lived his welcome. Sorta like Don Cherry. But ESPN keeps him around because he has sorta of a ESPN icon.

Berman and Fox's Van Earl Wright bug the hell out of me. Stuart Scott gets on my nerves sometimes too.

I guess I'm in the minority - I like Berman, for football at least, I don't watch golf.
