One of the cooler parts of hosting a Monday Night Football game is all the network TV hoopla that goes with it.
Case in point: today, at Redskins Park, the big, black ESPN Monday Night Football tour bus was parked right outside the front doors (see above).
This bus was awesome, and rivals the Redskins’ 80th Anniversary tour bus. It’s filled with leather seating, restrooms, flat-screen TVs — everything you’d expect and more, which includes Jon Gruden.
The Super Bowl-winning coach and current ESPN analyst was on board today and filmed a segment with Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III.
Of course, it wasn’t the first time Griffin III and Gruden have met to discuss the quarterback position on-air. In April — before the NFL Draft — Griffin III was a guest on ESPN’s “Gruden’s QB Camp.”
We’ll bring you the exclusive, behind-the-scenes video from Griffin III and Gruden’s on- and off-camera exchanges on Monday, but for now, here’s just a couple shots from on board the bus. The Washington Redskins Cheerleaders also stopped by and posed for some pictures:
