ESPN Game Day Notes

Some notes about ESPN's Bengals-Patriots "Monday Night Football" game tonight:
--If the Bengals defensive is good or bad, you'll hear about it from Justin Smith. The Bengals defensive end will be miked during the game.
--Stuart Scott, Emmitt Smith and Steve Young will do live reports from Paul Brown Stadium during "Monday Night Countdown" 7-8:30 p.m., hosted by Chris Berman in Bristol. In the studio will be Mike Ditka, Tom Jackson, Chris Mortensen, Keyshawn Johnson and Bill Parcels.
--Tony Kornheiser on the game: "Carson Palmer is a great quarterback. Tom Brady is, at this moment, unparalleled in the NFL. The New England team scores 38 every single game with precision. Cincinnati gives up 32. It's an "uh-oh" situation for Cincinnati, and Cincinnati can put up 50. It's possible this is gonna happen."
--Jamie Foxx appears in the game opening in a promotion for his new movie, "The Kingdom." Foxx, who plays an elite FBI team member in the film, is shown supposedly sneaking through the back rooms of Paul Brown Stadium, looking for info on Tom Brady, Carson Palmer and Chad Johnson. "It's going to be a shoot-out in the jungle tonight," he predicts.
--Two new Bruce Springsteen songs ("Radio Nowhere," "Living in the Future") will be featured on the MNF game and "Monday Night Countdown" pregame show. New Matchbox Twenty singles ("How Far We've Come." "I'll Believe You When") will be heard coming in and out of commercials and highlight packages.

i hate how they have contracts/agreements with music companies to use certain music to bump in and out with.. just use your own generic ESPN music everyone can enjoy and not stuff some people may or may not like....

Any idea on who is singing the National Anthem tonight? A lot of times they have a "big name" sing on MNF.

To Anon 4:05 p.m.
National Anthem will be sung by Robert Hatcher, the former MSD sewer dispatcher who was on "America's Got Talent" last summer.
