NBC Trades Oswald the Lucky Rabbit for Michaels

The one thing I couldn't figure out about the Michaels/Tirico/Kornheiser Monday Night Football switcheroo was why ESPN, which just signed Michaels to a long-term deal, would let him leave for NBC. Now we know. NBC traded rights to Ryder Cup matches, Olympics highlights, historic cartoon character Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and more to ESPN to get Michaels out of his contract.

Tirico, Theismann, Kornheiser to Call MNF

This should be interesting, but for sheer entertainment value, I'd prefer to see Tony Reali, Jason Whitlock and Skip Bayless doing these games.

It took me most of the morning, but I was able to find an article that was about something other than the Super Bowl officiating. Anyway, it looks like the Jets might once again slap the franchise tag on DE John Abraham, and then ship him off to San Diego for QB Philip Rivers. Given that new offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer was Rivers' QB coach in San Diego, and that Pennington's health is still a question, this certainly seems plausible. And if it actually happens, it'll bring us one step closer to Brian Ball!
