WE WON’T SHAKE CHRIS BERMAN’S HAND ANYTIME SOON: Despite initially having absolutely no earthly idea who he is, Bristol-based blogger DIAMONDSSAPHIRE ends up having a more-than-memorable remembrance of Chris Berman on her flight home from the Carribbean last year.
The story starts predictably enough, with her husband spotting the balding, bloated one during a layover. He shook Berman’s hand (remember that) and took a picture.
Soon the couple was on the same plane with the ESPN anchor (shocked to see him in coach) - and that’s when the fun really started: “So I was looking out the window and I feel a kick from my husband. He says ‘Honey, look at Chris.’ So I look and don’t see anything, I shrugged my shoulders, turned away and my husband says ‘NO, watch!’
“So here I am staring at this guy, feeling a little weird about it and it happens. This guy, Chris Berman takes his finger and shoves it as far up his nose as he can get it!! (LOL, I am laughing and typing this at the sametime) WTF..I think, maybe the booger is really bothering him. The only problem was, THE MAN DIDN’T STOP THERE.
“He picked his nose none (sic) stop and in-between picks you would think he would have wiped them on a tissue, his shirt, hell, the back of the seat in front of him! But no, this man proceeded to pop each booger in his..umm..yup you got it…MOUTH. These weren’t average sized boogers either, my husband to this day refers to them as Earthworms!! Same color, shape everything. HOW GROSS!!
“I was dumbfounded and if I was in my right mind I would have recorded it with my video camera option on my Digital Camera. But because I wanted to follow the rules and not use certain electronic devices during the flight all I have are the painful, yet amusing memories in my brain.
Not exactly a newsbreaker for us. And now, in more ways than one.
