Not only was this just about the worst impression I've ever heard, but it was also the most sacrilegious that Kornheiser could have tried to pull off. As if fawning over Favre wasn't enough, Tony tried to pull off a Howard Cosell impression before the kickoff of last night's Monday nighter....
Last night's game was actually rather low on the Brett Favre annoyance level, but leave it to Tony to add just enough to drive the audience crazy. It's become a weekly occurance this year for him and I almost think he's doing it on purpose at this point. The rest of the game wasn't that bad in announcing terms, but there's something about Kornheiser that always seems to ruin the good ones.
Here's the rest of your Monday Night in quotes, but none really compare to that craptastic impression....
