    Maybe its old, maybe its new. I saw it in the gym on Sunday.

    They show Cris Carter "preparing" for his duties by running routes, running the bleachers. I believe Keyshawn is doing a workout as well.

    They show Mort and Schefter in some sort of sterile smartphone lab, and they get their smartphones and start furiously typing/tweeting.

    Next is the show's Grand Poohbah, Berman. The producers of the commercial now had a dilemma: What are we going to have the fat fuck doing to represent *his* contribution to the show? They settled on putting him in front of a grand oak bookcase, camera down low, facing up to him, as he gives the camera a stern look. What a doosh.

    Has anybody else seen this commercial?

    They should have shown him scarfing hot wings at Applebees

    Actually - checking liner notes from LPs to crib lyrics for his copy would seem about right for Berman. Or pushing buttons on a Nickname Generator...

    Never would have expected this from ESPN.

    You'd have to pay me a sizable sum of money to sit through that entire commercial.

    They should've had him inspecting the finished products at a tannery.
