Week 13 Falcons\Saints Preview

It's hard to be too excited about tonight's game. In fact, I am sure it will be hard to sit through it's entirety.

At the same time there is a lot of bulletin board material for Tony and the boys to over-emphasize and blow way out of proportion. (Vick and Bush come to mind)

I am a little curious about how they'll make this game palatable. My guess is since they can't even make good games worth watching that this broadcast will make viewers feel like they have a sickness somewhere between having the flu and being in a coma. (Given the choice I'd take the coma!).

Fresh off their rating's victory last week it will be an eye opening night for ESPN execs when they realize no one is watching the game but me. (and I will be doing it in similar fashion to Alex de Large in A Clockwork Orange)

See ya all tomorrow!

Falcons owner Arthur Blank actually said to the announcers, "We appreciate all that you three guys do for ESPN and the National Football League."

I guess ever since Jimmy Kimmel made those Joe Theismann jokes, they started scripting the guests' speeches.

If Tony uses the phrase "stud quarterback" one more time, I may have to throw a brick through my TV.

On the upside, though, Jaws seems a bit more subdued and on task. At least through the first half.

I was thinking Blank is a smooth business man and would never say what he really thought.

He did it AGAIN!!!!!!

"And more of me."

Michael Wilbon said it best: "Good luck with that, America."

I couldn't watch more than 20 minutes of the game without turning it off. 5 minutes of Tony K feels more like 5 hours. I have not watched the PTI during half time since it has been on MNF since it features Tony K. But to say "more of me" on more than one occasion?? YUK! And I guess Arthur Blank had to say something postive in the booth since all the focus has been on Vick and his despicable acts but I agree that it had to be scripted.

HAs anyone come across news articles or EPSN saying if these 3 "talents" will be back next year? I sure hope not@

I can't take one more minute of Tony Korn-holer's fat trap, who does this guy think he is?? Everytime this guy opens his piehole on PTI I just want to slap the tongue right out of his mouth but the mute button isn't far away. Jaws is barely tolerable but my pity goes out to Mike Tirico, this guy must dread Mondays!
