In the case of a baseball game, I'd agree with you. I am going to watch it no matter who they stick in the booth. But I specifically watch ESPN's pregame show because of Berman. There are three to choose from. The postgame show is a bad example because at that 7:30 P.M. slot there is only one so we don't have much choice.

You're right, he's not really an announcer or an analyst. He's more like the color commentator in everything he does. All three pregames shows provide analysis but Berman is special in his humor, the color remarks concerning the match ups and they way he greases the wheels enough to make Young and Irvin bearable to watch.

To each his own but you can't deny the guy's immense popularity. There must be something there.

I like their pregame too. I like the fact they dont think too hard. Michael Irvin will just bust out, "come on now, my one color suit says there is no way in hell the Ravens are going to lose, they have my man, Deion. He just knows how to get it done."

Lol yea. Not much in the way of analysis but I like watching it, especially when Young and Irvin fight over recievers and QBs :-b

We are talking about NFL Primetime and the other pregame show, which I think are 2 of the few things that he does well. That still doesn't say why he needs to appear at every big sporting event.

I am assuming it's due to his popularity.

That's just it, though. I will admit that he is the face of ESPN for the most part but who says that he is so popular?? He has been around for a while but what else is there?? I must have missed the Berman parade where he was annointed as the face of every big event out there. He does the NFL very well. I would like for him to keep it that way. :-°

I don't think he would be the face of ESPN if he wasn't so popular. I know he's hugely popular with my circle of friends and at the sports bar I frequent. Granted that's a small sample size but it's all I have. If the majority of people hated this guy I don't think they be sticking him all of the place. But I don't know, maybe they would.

That's O.K. It seems like Stuart Scott is the latest face of ESPN. :-P

He wouldn't be so bad if he didn't play for the camera so much. That and his lazy eye. :-b
