Chris Berman a blast at U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2
Because of work, I’ve been watching ESPN’s taped replays of the U.S. Open, and I have to say I love listening to Chris Berman. At first, I thought he was a fish out of water, completely inappropriate for the quiet, hushed tones golf announcers usually use.
I half expected him to say of a Tiger Woods’ drive: “it’s going left… back, back, back, back,” in his classic baseball fashion.
But, his gravelly voice and occasional outburts are a good counterpoint to the usual drab play-by-play. He knows his golf, and his enthusiasm is catching.
Now, he needs to start giving the pros his trademark nicknames.
