Man, how's this for a downer on NFL Opening Day (or Opening Kickoff)? Chris Berman's "Swami" character, and its schticky goodness, turns thirty years-old this season and boy does that make me feel old. There's even more bad news.....The Swami is back once again with more predictions sure to lose you betters a ton of money!
I can't believe there's a person on this planet that finds the act funny, but for some reason I watch the "Swam" feature intently every time it comes on. The predictions almost always make no sense, it's dreadfully unfunny and the costumes are just ridiculous, but Berman has somehow managed to keep it going for 30-years as of this season. Oh how the time flies.
(FYI- I'm not going to be able to pull off a live-blog for tonight because something came up. If you come across any interesting quotes be sure to email them my way and I'll have videos and reviews up either tonight or early tomorrow.)
