Bram Gets All Famous

Having previously reported, sort of, on Bram Weinstein's departure from Covering the Redskins to ESPN anchoring duties, figure it might be time to check in and see how Bram's doing. If you watch ESPN News regularly, for hours at a time, you probably saw Bram deliver about 700 reports on Big Brown yesterday. During at least one of them, he pointed out that Big Brown can't understand English, because he's a horse. I think this is going to work out well for all of us.

This is the first week I've seen Bram in heavy Bristol head rotation, and it's kind of comforting to hear that old "Covering the Redskins" voice in a national setting. I'm just looking forward to frequent Bram-narrated reports on the Zorn Star.

A proud American University alum right there.

I've never seen Bram that stiff before, though. It looks as if he hasn't quite adjusted to reading from the teleprompter yet.

Still, Go Bram!

ESPN's credibility has fallen so low in recent years that I didn't know that it was still possible for a job in Bristol to be a step up. However, in this case, I think Bram caught the last lifeboat off Danny's Titanic.

Good to know that Bram still doesn't have control of his blinking yet. Some things never change. Approve though, i hope they give him a radio show. His show was fantastic on WTEM whenever it was allowed to be on air.

I miss Bram.

It's sad that promising media types feel the magnetic pull of ESPN. Kind of like in the olden days when the only real option that bright kids in town had was to work for the town's evil corporation.

If Kelli Johnson goes to ESPN, I don't know what I'll do.

He looks a lot thinner (at least in the neck area) than he did on Redskins Radio.

Bram is better at the interview portion of the broadcast. He stares straight at the prompter with no expression when reading highlights. Needs work like my player selection skills.
