College football does not "tide us over." It's our reason for being. Stop packing your college broadcasts with ads that imply we're a bunch of drooling idiots who willingly ignore two whole days packed with football because we just can't wait for the pageantry and sportstainment content that comes along with "Monday Night Football" the TV show, institution and religion. It's just one more football game at the end of a long weekend filled with them, no matter how loud Chris Berman bellows.
And another thing: No one actually looks forward to it because it means the weekend is over and we have to go back to work. Monday night games are, at best, the digestif after our weekend of football gorging, a postprandial cognac in front of the fire, the third cookie you take because the second one was so delicious.
Also, I don't have kids, and neither do my neighbors. So fuck off out of it.
