Monday Night Football on ESPN will be graced this year with the replacement of Tony Kornheiser with ex-Raider/Buccanneer coach Jon Gruden. Personally, I am thrilled. I had always wondered what the heck Kornheiser even did during the program as I often muted him. It will be so much fun watching Gruden’s personality translate from the sidelines to the broadcast booth (despite the fact that I will be reminded weekly of my one between-the-eyes forehead wrinkle that I refer to as my ‘Jon Gruden wrinkle’.)
Now if ESPN can only get the eternally charismatic Warren Sapp to replace Ron Jaworski and ventriloquist Jeff Dunham to replace Mike Tirico. I tell ya, MNF would attract a whole new class of fans.
