Last night, ESPN and TSN had one of their live mic broadcasts where both QB’s stay mic’d up the entire game so you can feel closer to the action, or really just hear a thousand F-bombs dropped on live television. It’s a fantastic idea that I’m pretty sure Vince McMahon and the XFL invented, and it’s something we need in the NFL soon.
