Enough with ESPN.

All right, Iíve had it. You all know I love my football, but Iíve given up on Monday Night Football. There is no way I can watch the games anymore. It has nothing to do with the games; itís the damn announcing. Al Michaels and John Madden used to annoy me with there ranting, but at least it would pertain to football. Joe Theismann, Mike Tirico and Tony Kornheiser (Henceforth known as Kornholer) will babble on about anything that trips their triggers.

They even bring on guests to interview DURING the game that have nothing to do with football. They talk over plays and then have to go back to get a recap of what happened. When they do try to provide insight itís like listening to most women talk about the game with men wearing tight pants.* Itís usually stuff that everybody knows or has just seen on the screen. They drive me nuts. Iíd rather listen to Clone try to explain calculus to me than these three blather on.

Iíve tried listening to the radio while the sound is off on the TV. The only problem is that when it shows the three of them yapping like old women, I can hear the plays they are missing. Why bother?!? Thus Iím done. I will no longer watch Monday Night Football until ESPN looses these three or makes them actually announce the game they are at.

I wish the guys the best of luck; hopefully they will get better as time goes on. Oh, and Theismann, break a leg.

*Some women can actually talk football and not sound stupid.

"Some women can actually talk football and not sound stupid."

Which is why I already quit watching MNF on ESPN.

No shit! I have been saying the same all season. Oh, and Thursday games are even worse. I was watching the Steelers game last week and Bryant Gumble, Deion and the crew were talking about what people were wearing!?!?!? Meanwhile, the ball was snapped, played, lines were formed and the ball was snapped again before they paused and acknowledged the game they were being paid to announce. Of course they went right back into the homo-banter. Bryant Gumble is a BEOTCH!!!!
