Tony Kornheiser’s three years in the booth at Monday Night Football have been pretty uneventful. Some people liked him and his humor in the booth, while others would rather have had a real football mind instead of the guy who was supposed to appeal to the common man. Personally I didn’t really care because when I’m watching football I’m not paying attention to the announcers as mush as I am my fantasy team.
Still, while I was never a huge fan of Kornheiser in the booth, I did think he was a lot better after Ron Jaworski replaced Joe Theismann. Of course none of that matters anymore because once Tony saw that this season’s MNF schedule included a few trips to the west coast and that he’d have to get in a plane more than usual, he decided he’d had enough. Now he’ll be replaced by former Raiders and Buccaneers coach, and horror movie star, Jon Gruden.
