    Score bug is a little hard to read, as are some of the player stats graphics.
    This is definitely a departure from the way ABC was doing football, even though 80% of the MNF crew ended up on this show.

    Let me get this straight: Art Shell is back with the Raiders?

    That is funny stuff.

    At least they got rid of the moronic player self-intros, which fucktards like Simeon Rice and almost every Miami "graduate" couldn't seem to handle.

    I was pissed when Blaine Bishop -- one of the few Ball State players of consequence ever besides 60s tailback Timmy Brown -- did his intro and instead of Ball State he said, "Old school".

    Mind you, it's a dumb thing to get pissed about it.

    I always enjoyed those. Allowed the players to display some personality.

    Either way I'm sure ESPN will keep it in some form for MNF.

    Yeah, there's nothing like watching Ray Lewis do that dance. By far the best entrance in the NFL.

    And Dick Enberg.

    Though I'd settle for Charlie Jones.

    Al Michaels on NBC just feels so wrong.

    OK, now I'm convinced you're in on the joke.

    Because no one over the age of 12 thinks Ray Lewis' intro dance is anything other than semen-less masturbation.

    I have that on the 4th or 5th time of the day.
