I thought firing Joe Theismann would be sufficient enough to mark a drastic improvement in Monday Night Football this year — the inconsistencies and idiocy passed off as expert analysis were painful; he was football’s equivalent of Joe Morgan. However, I was clearly disabused of this notion tonight while listening to SportsCenter while typing — the promo with Mike Tirico, Ron Jaworski, and Tony Kornheiser for tomorrow’s Broncos-Niners pre-season game included Kornheiser spieling off about how he was going to focus on Mike Nolan’s suit. His fucking Reebok suit, folks. That’s what he’s spewing off about, and it’s only a 45-second, pre-taped promo. Oof.
Jesus Christ, this season’s going to be painful. It’s now clear that Kornheiser must be sacrificed and booted off the telecast if I’m going to survive another season. Thankfully, I have to be at work during MNF. I suppose that cuts the suffering down.
