monday night football
The party was on tonight at Busch Stadium for the World Series, but nine blocks away at Edward Jones Stadium, there were plenty of good seats available for Seahawks-Rams … even though ticket prices for the game had crashed dramatically.
When the NFL and ESPN scheduled the Philadelphia Eagles and Carolina Panthers as the Monday night matchup for Week 12, they had no idea both squads would be arguably two of the the most disappointing, and definitely two of the shittiest teams in the league. But is it the worst MNF ever? Find out after the jump.
The Kansas City Chiefs lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers 16-13 last night on MNF, mostly because the Kansas City Chiefs do Kansas City Chiefs things. Like, say, turning a defensive TD into an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that technically never happened.
Well, the presidential campaign’s over, and I’m happy about it. And nothing makes me realize just how happy I am more than seeing what the end of the campaign came to last night: interviews for both candidates with Chris effing Berman. After the jump, see him talk to Mitt Romney and hare in my joy that we’ve reached the end.
According to a report from Sports Business Journal, both President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney have reached out to ESPN about appearing on the November 5th telecast of Monday Night Football, when the Philadelphia Eagles will visit the New Orleans Saints.
The New York Jets’ offense was beyond awful in last night’s loss to the Houston Texans, as per usual, as Mark Sanchez went 14-31 for 230 yards with 1 TD and 2 INTs. (Tim Tebow, according to ESPN’s infallible QBR, was 12.6 points more effective as a passer last night, going 0-1 for, you guessed it, zero yards.) But something good did happen when they threw the playbook out the window.
Next week’s Monday Night Football halftime show isn’t your run-of-the-mill fan completing a relatively simple task for a gargantuan prize – it’s spiced up with some celebrity and extra dollars. According to Devil Ball Golf, the October 15th Monday Night Football matchup between the San Diego Chargers and Denver Broncos will also put Phil Mickelson’s golf skills to the test.
Remember when the NFL had a pretty uneventful Week 1, officiating-wise, appearing to give the league big leverage in the ongoing referee lockout? Seems like a long time ago, doesn’t it? Now, everyone’s faling all over themselves saying the NFL needs the real refs back – and “everyone” includes ESPN’s team of NFL analysts.
Right now, the only football we have is the NFL preseason. And despite some fun things to look for here and there… it’s the preseason. NFL-televising networks need to remind us that the real stuff is around the corner to keep excitement levels up. Above is ESPN’s attempt to do just that for Monday Night Football. We need more Gronk and we need him now. [Front Row]
Based on the reaction of Twitter users and writers on respected websites like Deadspin, you’d think that Chris Berman had been announced as your mother’s next boyfriend, rather than the play-by-play announcer of a single Monday Night Football game.
