If its KD we'd have to tell him the game starts an hour before it actually kicks off.

That's a bit optimistic.

I'd give him a week's notice.

I wonder what was up ahead that caused the traffic to back up like that?

Perhaps a parade or something.

I'll give it a watch to see how she goes.

QUOTE
ESPN announced Tuesday Beth Mowins and ex-Jets and Bills coach Rex Ryan will call the Los Angeles Chargers vs. Denver Broncos Week 1 Monday Night Football contest, the second game of the doubleheader.

Mowins becomes the first female broadcaster to call a nationally televised game. She is the first woman to perform play-by-play duties for a regular-season NFL game since 1987, when Gayle Sierens called a regional tilt for NBC.

"Beth has been an important voice in our college sports coverage and she has experience calling NFL preseason games. She deserves this opportunity," Stephanie Druley, Senior Vice President, ESPN events and studio production, said in a statement. "ESPN is committed to putting talented women in high-profile positions and we look forward to Beth and Rex's call of this game on our MNF opening night."

Mowins began as a play-by-play host in 1994. She has regularly called college football games, as well as basketball, softball, soccer and volleyball for ESPN. She has also owned play-by-play duties during Oakland Raiders' preseason games up until the past two years.

"This is an amazing opportunity and I look forward to working with Rex and our entire ESPN team," added Mowins. "As lifelong fans of the NFL Monday Night Football franchise, we want to bring the same passion to the broadcast as our predecessors have all done."

Mowins' assignment ends an almost 30-year gap between women calling NFL games.

As Sports Illustrated's Richard Deitch pointed out, NBC wanted to hire Sierens for six games in 1988 after her debut to end the 1987 season, but her local station didn't want her to miss work.

After three decades, Mowins picks up the baton to open the 2017 season.

You have to figure new is going to be better than the stale Al Michaels + jock-ocracy that has been around for a while.

I'm not a huge fan of Rex, myself, but he has the kind of personality that could translate well to commentary. Given how much he struggled to coach his "specialty" (defense) over the past couple of years, I do worry he won't be able to translate knowledge (he has it) to education, leaving me confused rather than enlightened.

However, I love the diversity hire (although my wife has recently been very critical of whomever, female, was calling, or was it commentary, college basketball games for Cincinnati this year - but that's because she wants the commentary to be completely biased in her teams' favor). Again: something new, so we don't have the same basic people making the same basic comments. Anything that prevents me from playing Cliché Bingo while watching the game.

Here's hoping the game is an instant classic and she can knock it out of the park on the call. "Aguerooooooooo" is probably too much to ask for, but calling a last-minute thrilling victory would probably help everyone, all the way around.
