16. Jim Rome Wets His Britches

Announcer: Jim Rome
Date: April 1994

There was a point in Jim Rome's career when he wasn't able to do face-to-face interviews in fear that something like this would repeat itself. Rome had been calling Jim Everett "Chris Evert" (the female tennis player—get it?!?) Chris Everett (like the woman tennis player) on his radio show ever since Everett (w/ the Rams) took the famous "phantom sack" in the 1989 NFC Championship Game vs. the Niners. Rome showed some balls—right up until he had a 6'5" NFL QB hovering over him.
