If You're Going To Make Chris Berman Stand Up To Cancer, Put Him On TV

A hot mic caught ESPN's Chris Berman and John Kruk debating their participation in the Home Run Derby's corporate sponsorship tie-in for cancer research. It also caught Berman trying to make sure their efforts to hoist skyward what is surely at least 600 combined pounds would be captured on live TV.


That part wasn't, but the "hnnnnnunnnngh" sure was. It's been a disaster of a night on ESPN's broadcast from a technical standpoint, but ruining the "Stand Up To Cancer" moment with a hot mic is pretty bad. But, then, at least Berman didn't say anything profane this time.
