Chris Berman Nicknames Fernando Salas “Tossed Salas”

Chris Berman must have figured he could get away with anything on ESPN baseball last night because nobody would be watching — the NBA Finals began around the same time on their sister station and it was the middle of a Tuesday.

1…2…3…Doris Burke. 1…2…3… Derp

Don’t mind Doris Burke, she’s just taping a segment that will re-air later. Oh, it’s live? That, or she was supposed to be live all along and the (wo)man in her ear-mic was playing a dirty trick on her and telling her that they weren’t on the air, yet — okay, we are on the […]

After Minnesota Wild’s 2010 first round pick Mikael Granlund, ON THE MOVE, put the puck on his stick and cradled it to the corner […]
