That announcer list you ran down reminds me of this.

When I was in school during the Gifford-Cosell-Meredith heyday, watching MNF was such a priority that we didn't watch the Sunday games and prepped ahead so that we would not be buried in school work on Monday nights. Any teacher that gave us a test on a Tuesday was a bad person, clueless about the real world pressures of student life.
