Video: Chris Berman Calls Cards Closer 'Tossed Salas'

ESPN’s Chris Berman was in rare form last night while calling the Cardinals-Giants game. First he dropped this bit of nonsensical information on viewers when discussing the Giants: “Well they have 7 walk off wins thus far, most of them at home.”

Most? By definition a walkoff win has to be accomplished at home, otherwise it wouldn’t be a walkoff win. Given how much Berman has covered baseball, we can only assume this was a momentary slip of the tongue — akin, perhaps, to something that happened later in the broadcast, when Berman, long known for his cute nicknames like Barry “U.S.” Bonds and Bert “Home” Blyleven, dropped a nickname for a sex act on St. Louis closer Fernando Salas. Yup, Berman called him “Tossed Salas.”

Sure, you can say Berman was actually referring to the garden variety “tossed salad,” but we have our doubts.
