During FOX’s OT yesterday evening, Curt Menefee and the gang announced that they are talking the show on the road. Well overseas to be exact. FOX’s NFL Sunday will be broadcasting a show for the troops in Afghanistan next weekend.
FOX Sports, in conjunction with Armed Forces Entertainment, proudly announced that it would broadcast an unprecedented two-hour special FOX NFL SUNDAY on November 8 (11:00 AM ET/8:00 AM PT) from an undisclosed military installation in Afghanistan.
The Emmy Award-winning team of Curt Menefee, Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long, Michael Strahan, Jimmy Johnson and Jay Glazer make this exciting trans-global journey just three days before Veteran’s Day as a tribute to the dedication and sacrifice of our country’s servicemen and women.
“Our men and women in the military put themselves in harm’s way to protect everything we hold dear, and none more so than those who are stationed in the Middle East,” said FOX Sports Chairman David Hill. “It is our privilege and honor to take FOX NFL SUNDAY to them in November, right before Veteran’s Day. Amidst the fun and football, it’s our hope to showcase the dedication of these men and women who have to defend against a lot more than the Wild Cat.”
Well this should certainly be a blast. Veteran’s Day occasionally becomes a forgotten holiday, and needs to be recognized especially during times when America is at war. Great idea by FOX if you ask me.
