I've Been Waiting All Day

Creature of habit that I am, I like my football on Sundays at 1 p.m. straight up with no chaser.  Conversely, I hate it when my team is on Monday Night Football and must wait another day and a half to watch them.  It's a royal pain.  I can only imagine how much the players hate having to wait around all day to play a game that doesn't kick off until 8:30 p.m. 

Why start so late?  The NFL has it figured out that East Coast football idiots like me will only stay up to about 11:30 - midnight to watch a game.  On the other hand, the NFL worries more about the West Coast bubbas getting home from work, school or whatever and then planting themselves in front of a T-V from 5:30 (PCT) on.  The NFL tries to best accommodate both coasts and their demographics but over all they are more concerned with their West Coast fan base.  All of us old fart East Coast retirees can go pound sand.

Little MNF trivia for you - which teams have been paired up to make the most appearances on Monday Night?  Answer - the Broncos vs. the Raiders @ 17 times and the Cowboys vs. the Redskins @ 17 times.  Any bets as to which pairing will first hit 18?

Remember TO?

Here is ESPN's promo for tonite's game that has the Ravens a 7 point underdog to Tommy and the Pats.  Redskins will be on next week's Monday Night's game.

But when it comes to promo's for night time football, I still keep the faith:
