The lines are being blurred...

I am a big fan of Monday Night football. Not because I am the biggest football fan in the world and definitely not because I like the announcing crews. I think that I enjoy MNF mainly because it gives me a sense of a prolonging the weekend. When you combine MNF with the 45 degree weather we are having tonight...it is just the perfect way to spend a fall evening curled up with a blanket.

Except for one thing.

There is something about the way they open MNF that is starting to get on my nerves a little bit. In fact, the screaming "Are you ready for some football?" intro is starting to remind me of the WWF (which is now evidently the WWE...who knew). MNF has its Jacked Up. Wrestling has its SmackDown. The start of wrestling is accompanied by screaming maniacal characters trying to rile up the crowd. The same thing now greets the start of a MNF game. The lines between the two may be starting to blur a little more than I am comfortable with.

But then the game starts and I feel better.

I hate that Jacked Up segment. If you watch closely you can tell Steve Young thinks it's stupid as well.
