You’re With Me, Double-Breasted Suit

As a sports blogger, it’s part of my makeup to loathe Chris Berman and the punny nicknames he hands out like so many Chinese food samples at the Tyson’s Corner food court. Like bad sesame chicken, there’s not much Jake “Daylight Come and You Gotta” Delhomme one can take before something wicked this way comes.

But back in ’93, I was infatuated with ESPN, “Boomer” included, and Upper Deck’s Berman’s Best subset resides at the convergence of those that I loved: the Worldwide Leader, the NFL and, of course, football cards. That ultramarine, six-on-two double-breasted jacket is still a hot mess though.
