Sure, it's a long-running institution in the sporting world and is usually the only game in town on the week's dreariest day. But, as a very wise person once pointed out: football is on ALL day Saturday and ALL day Sunday. There are also games on Thursday nights, occasionally there are Friday tilts, and even there's even some MAC games on Tuesday and Wednesday.
That is every day of the week.
So what makes Monday special? Why is it an "event"? Why is it so hyped up?
If you believe the commercials, Monday Night Football can cure even the worst day and work and gives people a reason to wake up in the morning.
I just don't get it.
Maybe it's tonight's extremely lackluster match-up between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Houston Texans that has me down. Maybe it's constantly standing up for Tony Kornheiser that's worn me down.
But maybe Monday Night Football has lost a little of its luster and it's not as special as it used to be.
Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe you've never been more into it.
Tell me what you think about the place MNF has in the sporting world, and why I should be excited to watch this battle between 4-7 teams tonight.
Also, for the record:
Jacksonville 24, Houston 20
