Bill Parcells has officially received a verbal offer from ESPN. I know....we kind of already knew that. But the funny part is the terms....
Parcells has a verbal agreement to join ESPN's "Monday Night Countdown" cast and likely will sign the deal this week or next, a network source said. Parcells sought a limited schedule with little travel and is expected to be based at ESPN's Bristol, Conn., studio.Umm, wait a second.......isn't EVERY person from ESPN that is involved in the NFL "based out of Bristol"???? I'm not quite sure I understand. It's not like College Gameday where they travel from city to city.....all though that might not be a bad idea.

Local DC Metro Info (Feel free to skip if you don't care about the O's or Nats):
The O's and Nats have settled on their P-B-P guys/gals for the upcoming 2007 season. The O's will split duties between Gary Thorne and Jim Hunter on MASN with Jim Palmer, Buck Martinez, and Rick Dempsey doing color. (I approve of none of these but Hunter and Martinez, but I'll give Dempsey a shot....he could be entertaining. Jim Palmer can go to hell.)
For the Nats....Bob Carpenter is back and will be aided by Don Sutton.
Boring stuff right? Well check out the "sideline" reporters.....The O's have hired FOX 45's Amber Theoharis, and the Nationals have tabbed Debbi Taylor for the role. I can't find a photo of Debbi Taylor, but Amber is very "Amy Smartish" don't you think? Someone alrert The Big Picture!
