I like Kimmel. He didn't get in the booth and pretend that he knew oh so much about football, a la Dennis Miller. He doesn't monopolize the conversation either, which Miller did. I'm not saying that Kimmel should go into the MNF booth as a regular (no way!!), but I am saying that it was refreshing to see someone in the booth who didn't feel the need to step all over everyone else's lines and who didn't act like the Supreme Keeper of All Football Knowledge.
I do like Tony in the booth....I really didn't think I would, but he does his homework every week, and it is SO fun to listen to him put Joe in his place. I've been pleasantly surprised with the job he's done.
I think the people they bring into the booth are auditioning for MNF. I've seen Barkley, Kimmel can't think of the others. But somebody will be leaving and I hope it's not Tony K. Please let it be Norman Einstein.
