Barack Obama, Mitt Romney Camps Approach ESPN About ‘Monday Night Football’ Appearance


Barack Obama, Mitt Romney Camps Approach ESPN About 'Monday Night Football' AppearanceFour years ago, Barack Obama and John McCain popped in for a chat with Chris Berman on Monday Night Football, and that revealing, candid interview rocked the political landscape — or the complete opposite of that.

This year, once again, one day prior to the Nov. 6 presidential election, it looks like President Obama and opponent Mitt Romney will stop by for another talk with Berman, according to the Sports Business Journal. Nothing has been officially confirmed, yet, but both camps have approached ESPN about the possibility, in addition to appearing on Mike & Mike in the Morning.

"We’ve been approached and are strongly considering doing it again," said Vince Doria, ESPN’s senior vice president and director of news. "If we do those, we will try to treat the candidates in a
fair manner and try to find some questions that have a sports connection
but have a substance to them."
