Booze, Baseball, and another "B"

Monday, December 26, 2005


More along the lines of a FINAL countdown than I was talking about the other day, tonight is ABC's last Monday Night Football broadcast. Who's playing? Patriots vs Jets. The first MNF game was CLE vs Jets, so I guess that's kind of fitting.

Maybe it won't be a terrible game. Yeah, and maybe I'm a Chinese jet pilot.

I'm going to miss ABC's MNF, and I don't think that they should be dumping it on ESPN (both are owned by Disney, next season MNF is going to ESPN, Sunday Night Football is moving to NBC). That being said, there have been some bad matchups and games (last week for instance), which have led to the terrible ratings numbers. In the NFL's defense, so many times it's caused by teams coming out of nowhere to be really awful, like the Jets this year.

Since ESPN a Disney company along with ABC, maybe they'll be able to keep Hank Williams Jr. around to continue singing the theme song.
