I don't care about the announcers, I just want to see my team!
For watching a game live, nothing beats the excitement of a night game, especially outdoors. I'm going to go to two this year----in Cleveland and Buffalo---and you can't beat the atmosphere of football under the lights on a chilly night.
no, I hear you. I live in DC, so I have to really plan out the season to make sure I maximize the number of games I can watch.
My point is, people STILL think MNF is what it is, but that changed with Sunday Night Football on NBC. that is the "reward" game, the big boy now, and MNF, no matter how much ESPN wants to use the song etc., isn't the big game of the week anymore.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.
