Obama, Romney scheduled to appear on ‘Monday Night Football’

The election is almost here, and the candidates are scheduled to appeal to the American voting public again at the last minute, as President Obama and Mitt Romney are expected on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” broadcast the day before the election.

ESPN’s Chris Berman — who also interviewed Obama and John McCain on the eve of the presidential election four years ago during “MNF” — plans to tape separate interviews with the candidates Monday afternoon. Both segments will air during halftime of the game, said the network, which pits the Philadelphia Eagles against the New Orleans Saints.

The Eagles (3-4) and Saints (2-5) match-up isn’t exactly the most promising NFL battle this week; but last week’s game — when the San Francisco 49ers crushed the Arizona Cardinals — still copped 11 million viewers, a decent number for Obama and Romney before people head to the polls on Nov. 6.
