The firing of Boomer Esiason as analyst for ABC's Monday Night Football seems to have caught a number of commentators and fans off-guard. Personally I have wondered why it took so long. That Al Michaels will not be heading out the door with Boomer should be the real surprise, but then Michaels is a golfing partner of Don Ohlmeyer who returns as the producer of Monday Night Football after a 23 year absence.
