British Open exclusively on ESPN starting in 2010 – Boo-NO!

Great. All four days of the British Open will be aired on ESPN starting in 2010. First the Masters and now the British.  Isn’t anything sacred?   I have the same fears I’ve always had about ESPN doing golf.  I call it “ESPNification.”  I can’t wait to hear Chris Berman’s no-longer-funny sports names. I can hear it now…

Chris Berman: “Woop, woop. Mickelson just drained a putt. He’s one below par. Now let’s go to Roger Chocolate Malt-be.”

Stuart Scott: “Straight butta! Goosen is as cool as the other side of the pillow.”

Chris Berman: “Watch Tiger’s ball go rumblin’ bumblin’ stumblin’ deeep into the bottom of the cup.”

Stuart Scott: “Boo-yah! Tiger must be the bus driver cause he was takin’ Phil to school.”

Then Vijay Singh backs a wedge up…

Stuart Scott: “Yup yup. Call me big daddy when you back that thing up. Bubba Watson just hit a 342 yard drive. Wow! That as hardcore as the Wu-Tang Clan on steroids!”

I think I’m gonna be sick…

Note: All Scott and Berman quotes used here are REAL. Yes, even the stupid “one below par” quote… OMG. GAG ME.
