President Bush to visit 'MNF' booth Nov. 3?

Sorry for the blogging lull. I've been busy.

I read Tom Coughlin's new book while trying to figure out how to file my Cablevision expenses. Finished the book. Still haven't figured out how to file the expenses.

I had several interesting conversations Tuesday with ESPN personnel about their plans for a new-look "Monday Night Football," most of which I will be sharing in a future, interesting newspaper article.

But here's a snippet that might even be newsworthy: When I asked producer Jay Rothman for his best guess about the number of booth guests this season, now that Brett Favre will be unavailable for the opener at Lambeau, he said, "Zero."

Then he added, "We may pull something off the eve of the election, but if we do we’ll do so at halftime."

Umm . . . the election? Was he referring to the President of the United States, perhaps?

"I don't know," Rothman said.

Umm . . . where is the game the night before the election?

Rothman: "Washington, D.C."
