Wife of legendary ESPN broadcaster Chris Berman killed in car accident

Legendary ESPN broadcaster Chris Berman’s wife, Katherine Ann Berman, was reportedly killed in a two-car accident in Connecticut on Tuesday afternoon, according to a New York Post report.

The 67-year-old Berman was one of two people killed in a two-car accident in Woodbury.

Chris Berman, who has been with ESPN since it started, has been the face of the network’s NFL coverage for nearly 30 years.

“This is a devastating tragedy and difficult to comprehend,” ESPN President John Skipper said in a statement.

“Chris is beloved by all his ESPN colleagues and for good reason: he has a huge heart and has given so much to so many over the years. We know how much his family means to him and all we can do at a moment like this is give him the love and support he will surely need at this hour. Our thoughts and prayers are with Chris, Meredith, Doug and the entire family.”

Berman was attending the New York Mets-San Francisco Giants game at Citi Field in New York when he received the tragic news from the NYPD.

Will Drew Lock be the best QB in the SEC East in 2017?

As the 2017 college football season approaches, several SEC East teams have quarterback concerns.

Only four teams — Missouri, South Carolina, Vanderbilt and Georgia — have established starters, and Georgia’s staff insists it has a competition with true freshman Jake Fromm performing well over this spring.

Florida has two talented redshirt freshmen in Feleipe Franks and Kyle Trask with eyes on the starting job as Luke Del Rio recovers from injury and Kentucky has a legitimate battle between Stephen Johnson and Drew Barker for the top spot.

Meanwhile, Tennessee is trying to find a replacement for longtime star Joshua Dobbs and Vanderbilt will continue to use the underwhelming Kyle Shurmur.

One team that doesn’t have a question at quarterback is Mizzou. The Tigers will start junior Drew Lock for the second consecutive season.

With Mizzou’s wide-open, fast-paced offense, it’d be surprising if Lock didn’t lead the division in most statistical categories.
