After watching Monday Night Football, I don't know which was worse...
Seeing Paris Hilton in the intro
The ESPN mascot race or whatever they called it
The Minnesota Vikings
Watching ESPN use the biggest celebrity whore out there made me wonder who the hell signed off on that. Remind me what she has to do with football besides liking balls? She probably can't even fucking spell NFL.
When I first saw the ESPN costumes, I was amused. Berman had much more hair on him than in real life. Not an accident. They all look freakishly like the Joker with their permanent smiles. I wanted to see them race because I imagined it like the sausage races they do in Milwaukee. In typical ESPN fashion, the race was so lame that fans in the stands were silent.
First the announcer calling the race sounded like he was reading from a script. I wished he just dropped the script and called it all gay. Secondly all they did was run from the goal line, to the mid-line and back. Get the Minnesota cheerleaders in their costumes running instead and instant applause. Finally they weren't even racing. Some of the goons were instructed to walk. But it ended up going to the lame theme of the night.
The Vikings were suppose to be good? There was so much man love in the booth from Joe for Tom Brady that he had just a little for Brad Johnson at the beginning. I think Joe suggest Brad should get a contract extension and a raise cause only Charlie Frye gets paid less than him. This was when it was only 7-0. Brad went out and showed he should be paid less than whoever decided to use Paris Hilton in the intro.
More reasons to just hate ESPN most of the time.
