Chris Berman cartoon caption contest

I remember when I was a kid, the highlight of every week during football season was settling in to watch Chris Berman and Tom Jackson on ESPN's "Primetime." Sadly, Berman hasn't aged well, devolving from an amusing and inventive anchor to a lazy, catchphrase-touting hack who sighs and wants to make sure he's filmed when asked to stand up for cancer.

I remember when I was a kid, the highlight of every week during football season was settling in to watch Chris Berman and Tom Jackson on ESPN's "Primetime." Sadly, Berman hasn't aged well, devolving from an amusing and inventive anchor to a lazy, catchphrase-touting hack who sighs and wants to make sure he's filmed when asked to stand up for cancer.

So what do you have to say about Berman?

Submit your best ideas in the comments below, and use our cool Disqus commenting system to up-vote the captions you think should win (works better than telling me the ones I pick are terrible). You can tweet me suggestions, too - @RobTornoe. I'll pick the best and announce the results on Sunday.

Check out previous winners here, and if you're not feeling particularly inspired, just take a couple of "deux deux deuxs." That should put you in the mood.
