ESPN Monday Night Football Complaint - Is This What I Waited All Summer For?
USA -- I realize that there are much more important things to talk or think about on this day so forgive me while I vent on this trivial subject of Monday Night Football featuring the Baltimore Ravens and the Cincinnati Bengals.
First of all what was ESPN thinking about starting the game at 5pm MDT? Do we really need a doubleheader on a MONDAY? I get home and the first half is nearly over. Luckily, I missed that hot dog loser Chad Johnson's touchdown celebration but that wasn't the end of that. They replayed it numerous times then ESPN has two schmucks debating on the entertainment value of it at halftime! Who is producing this nonsense some ten year old? It's bad enough seeing these guys do these stupid sack dances or touchdown dances when they are in some cases LOSING the game but now the announcers are so shallow that they have to glorify these acts? I'll take a tipsy Don Meredith, Howard Cosell, and Kathy Lee Gifford's bumbling husband (Frank) any day over Mike Tirico, Ron Jaworski and this Cornheiser clown. Heck they made me long for the O.J. Simpson days in the booth! I know some will say turn the volume down or listen to the radio broadcast but that gets kind of awkward with the signal delay differences and all.
Oh well that's my 3 cents for the day and I feel much better now. Thank goodness for College Football!
