    My wife brought home a copy of the movie, "Monday Night Mayhem." The story of Monday Night Football. I think the part about Henry Ford telling ABC to fire Howell Cosell hit home with me at some of the papers I've been at where the advertisers try to run the content of the paper. Anyone else seen it? What were you thoughts on it?

    From what I remember of it, I think he was played by John Turturro.

    It was an OK movie. Turturro was somewhat believable as Cosell.

    The book was 10X better. Good, good read.

    Run, don't walk, to your local used bookstore and find a copy.
