ESPN on Wednesday unveiled its Monday Night Football broadcast team and, as speculated, Al Michaels isn't on the list. USA Today confirms that the veteran sportscaster, whose original plan was to follow MNF from ABC to the cabler, instead was able to be released from his ESPN deal so as to join John Madden's eyebrows on NBC's Sunday-night NFL coverage next season. So who is in ESPN's booth? Mike Tirico, Joe Theismann and Pardon the Interruption's Tony Kornheiser. Mike, you make us Orangemen proud. The next slice at Varsity is on me.
