Chris Mortensen just dropped the greatest, most uplifting tweet on a Monday morning ever.
"Jon Gruden joins Monday Night Football booth with Mike Tirico and Ron Jaworski. Tony Kornheiser steps aside."
First John Madden. Now Tony Kornhesier. Will someone give Joe Buck a talk show so that the "Axis of Football Announcing Evil" will be officially demolished?
Update: here is Ron Jaworski on Gruden, from the ESPN Official Statement...
“I first got to know Jon when he was a coordinator with the Philadelphia Eagles. He was young, bright and energetic. He has a tremendous football mind and his career speaks for itself. He will bring a unique perspective to Monday Night Football and I am excited to work with him.”
