MNF Gets Political

As if pushing the World Series back wasn’t enough, we now have to deal with a political halftime show. It was announced earlier that Barack Obama and John McCain will bombard the MNF halftime show between the Steelers and Redskins, to make their final push a day before the election. They believe it will be the perfect scenario to help elevate their side into the lead.  After all, Monday night football, in the DC area, a night before the election, you can see why they wanted this. However sports and politics do not go together. Let us enjoy our football game without hearing how bad the economy is and all the other hoopla. Word is ESPN’s Chris Berman will interview the candidates in a taped session, lets hope it goes as fast as his two minute segments. Me, I’ll be filling up on brew and wings during halftime, so it doesn’t really bother me, but when is enough, enough. What are you thoughts on this Skins fans?

In other news, former Redskins safety Ryan Clark has been fined $5k for paying tribute to the legend Sean Taylor. Apparently Clark was rocking eye black with the number 21 stamped in. This is beyond ridiculous to me, let the man honor his friend, commissioner Goodell is clearly showing that his priorities are in the wrong place.

I was always a fan of Clark when he was in the burgundy and gold, he impressed the hell out of me. I now respect him even more, I had no idea he was still doing this.
