Chris Berman takes his crew to effin' TV school - VIDEO

Chris BermanThis video has been floating around the blogosphere for a few days -- thanks to Deadspin, who always seems to be able to dig up fun clips like this -- but I wanted to put it up here, for those who missed it (or those who find it so funny that they want to see it over and over again):

The clip is an outtake of Chris Berman doing a Monday Night Football halftime show in 2000 (when MNF was on ABC and was still semi-relevant). Apparently, people were moving within Berman's line of sight while he was doing said halftime show, and he didn't like it. Nope, he didn't like it one bit. He hated it so much, that went on an obscenity-laden tirade, only to pause to take a dainty sip of what looks like a Diet Coke.

I think the clip is hilarious because Berman doesn't really break out of his "highlight voice" while ranting and raving. You almost think he's going to start spewing nicknames while he's bitching about how unprofessional his crew is being. The best part is the end: he yells, "We need to use this studio for fifteen fuckin' minutes!" before burying his head in his hand. Priceless. Hope this gets everyone in the mood for the Super Bowl. It definitely did that for me.

(By the way, the sports blog The Big Lead thought the video was so funny that they posted it two days in a row.)

He does have a point. I've been in studio - and it is everyone's responsibility to make sure on air talent is focused.

The video is awesome. I just wish that this had happened on the air. I wish every halftime show was this entertaining!

"Its like no one here has worked in tv before!!!"
