RUSH ON ESPN
I’ve caught a couple of snippets of Rush Limbaugh doing football commentary on ESPN’s pregame show, both before Thursday’s season opener and just a few minutes ago. He is surprisingly good at it. Unlike Dennis Miller, who tried to force his standup routine into the format of game announcing on Monday Night Football, Limbaugh just talks conversationally about football and manages to be provocative simply because that’s his nature. I think Miller could have been successful on MNF had he done the same.
