From "Whoop!" To Gravitas In Under 30 Seconds

The last 3 of Chris Berman's top 10 plays of the week:

3. Seattle Seahawks defense on Monday Night Football
2. Reggie Bush wins the Heisman Trophy
1. Remembering the attack on Pearl Harbor

About 40th on a list of "What's Wrong With This?" is that Chris Berman refuses to go along with everyone else's definition of the word "play."

BONUS! I have a "Boomerism" for Boomer himself. Ready?

Chris "Loren" Berman.

Loren Berman is a girl I went to high school with. I am willing to put this up against "Ben 'Winter' Coates" any day of the week.

To be fair, that sports play when everyone remembered Pearl Harbor was pretty sweet.

BONUS: Here's my Boomerism for dak:

It sure was weird a couple of months ago when "Remembering the heroes of September 11" was beaten by a nice barehanded grab Royce Clayton made against the Brewers. You could hear the crew in the studio gasp when Boomer said "Number 2 ... a tragic day in American history."

At least the grab was a play, though.
Fire "Cup o'" Joe Morgan
Fire Joe "Less is" Morgan
Fire "-wire" Joe Morgan

I appreciate that three of Berman's Top 10 of the 20th century are from the 21st century.
Shit. And I was really proud of that post, too.
