Twitter Was Vociferous in its Displeasure of Chris Berman Ruining the Home Run Derby

The internet despises ESPN’s Chris Berman, but you already knew that. ESPN’s biggest blowhard called the home run derby last night, and always-angry twitter nation flung bile at Berman all night. Below is an unedited sampling of the beating Berman took from fans. Two people, including an NBA player, said nice things about Berman. You can find those at the bottom. For the 3rd year in a row, I completely avoided the home run derby. I watched Green Zone (very good) and then some of Argentina-Costa Rica and the end of a repeat episode of Gossip Girl.
