Mike Ditka is still trying to clear the air.
Ditka explained in the segment that “Countdown” host Chris Berman was responsible for the noise, saying he pooh-poohed his picking the New York Giants over the Philadelphia Eagles because Berman is a Philly fan.
Fellow “Countdown” panelist Cris Carter, whose face exaggerated what everyone thought was a fart, gave the same story, but it seems weird that it took this long for anyone to give that explanation.
It’s too bad Ditka didn’t have a fall guy to take the blame at the time. Cris Carter knows a thing or two about that.
