Chris Berman Loses His Cool During ‘Sunday NFL Countdown’ Audio Malfunction (Video)


Sunday night, for the most part, was a success for ESPN. There were many close games to run through that kept fans interested, and the technical aspects of the studio team’s broadcast went off without a hitch.

It’s hard to tell if Chris Berman was gesticulating wildly because he was mad, because he was calling the producers to action, or both. But he did get back into host mode pretty seamlessly. What a pro.
