Bush vs. Monday Night Football?

From NBC's Mark Murray
NBC's Tim Russert reports this morning that White House press secretary Tony Snow has called the TV networks, requesting time for a Monday 9:00 pm ET primetime speech by President Bush to commemorate the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The speech will be from the Oval Office and will last about 20 minutes. But will Bush's have some competition for viewership? As all football fans across the country know, Monday nights in the fall mean Monday Night Football (which now is on ESPN). And at the same time as Bush plans to give his speech, the Washington Redskins -- the favorite team of many DC politicos and journalists -- will be taking on the Minnesota Vikings.
