Goodbye, Joe, you gotta go...

Tony Kornheiser and Joe Tirico will have a new pal to chat about ABC reality-TV stars and barbecue tips and most anything except football in the ESPN Monday-night booth this fall. ESPN announced today that Monday_night_football_ny157 Joe Theismann has been energetically hurled overboard, to be replaced by studio analyst (and, like Theismann, a former NFL quarterback) Ron Jaworski. Theismann "has been offered a prominent football analyst role with ESPN," which I'm guessing is working as color man on Arena Football taxi-squad games. Given that Monday Night Football has become nothing but a whorish promotional vehicle for the television series of ESPN's corporate cousin ABC, ESPN is probably doing Theismann a big favor.
