Deana Favre, Best MNF Guest Ever

Tuesday, October 30, 2007

Yes. Better than Vince Vaughn, Christian Slater, Jimmy Kimmel....even Sir Charles. I was riveted when she was in the booth explaining how different it is for her to watch a game than the guys in the booth. Jaws follows probably 14 different things at once, but when she explained that she rarely ever takes her eyes of her husband it was something I hadn't thought about. It made me think (shocking I know) about how many different ways, different people watch a Sporting Event and especially something as complex a game as Football.

Yes, she was also promoting her book, but this time her promo was actually relevant. It's Breast Cancer Awareness's not some cheesy movie, it's a promo for a late night talk show, it's not a promo for Desperate Housewives, and it's not "whatever Christian Slater was in the booth for". It was a great interview and the only other one that comes close was the Spike Lee appearance for the first game back in New Orleans after Katrina.

Deanna was so good she even got Tony to say that she's better than him in the booth! I don't think anyone's ever gotten those words to come out of his mouth. I someone erased the rest of her appearance, but here's the outro.

Also, what's with Tony Kornheiser and talking about women with every guest? He almost posed a Who Would You Do? question to James Denton last year, and has said "Kelly Ripa is hot" and "She smells better than I do" this year.


Deanna Favre is the Brett Favre of breast cancer.

Funny, i actually turned it to mute when she came in because I was already tired from the hour long ball licking that Brett got from the 3 doufuses. I like watching Brett play but I can't take the announcing crews talking about him the entire game, especially night games.

What do you want to bet that Tony ends up getting fired for making an off-color comment about a female that "just came out the wrong way"?

ESPN is telling me that everybody loves Tony.

So Deana Favre watches Packers games the exact same way as Peter King?

They should do away with 'guests' in the booth all together. This one was particularly cloying, exploitive and most of all boring. Football broadcasts is supposed to be entertaining.
