Entertainment: Sports World Is Praying For Longtime ESPN Host

Ahead of Eagles game, Peyton and Eli Manning take a long break from ‘Monday Night Football’

  Ahead of Eagles game, Peyton and Eli Manning take a long break from ‘Monday Night Football’ What do Peyton and Eli have against the Birds? The Eagles are taking on the Washington Commanders on ESPN’s Monday Night Football. But for the second time this season, the Manning brothers aren’t hosting their ESPN2 Monday Night Football Manningcast while the Birds are playing. It’s the first of three weeks the former NFL quarterbacks are skipping as they get an early jump on Thanksgiving. It’s their longest break of the season after taking two weeks off in October. It’s not like the Manning brothers don’t like the Eagles or MVP candidate Jalen Hurts, who has a relationship with the duo dating back to his time at their Manning Passing Academy during high school.

The longtime ESPN host is missing a key part of the football season, as the College Football Playoff was just announced and the NFL regular season is heading to the finish line.

But health is obviously paramount.

Sports fans are praying for Greenberg's speedy recovery so he can be back on the air soon.

"Unfortunately I’ve had a little setback and am going to have to miss the rest of this week. Hate being out during this incredible time for sports. Thanks to everybody carrying the ball for me, and for all the support. Enjoy the games everybody - I’ll be back as fast as I can," he announced.

Our thoughts are certainly with Greenberg as he makes his recovery this week.

"Ts & Ps to you greeny. I’ll be watching to make sure everyone else is on top of it," one fan wrote.

Joe Buck reveals why he turned down notable request from ESPN

  Joe Buck reveals why he turned down notable request from ESPN In an appearance on the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast with Jimmy Traina, Buck admitted that ESPN had inquired about having him call a few baseball games, but he just was not interested anymore in doing that. “They kinda gingerly asked me to do a game during the season,” Buck said, via Brandon Contes of Awful Announcing. “I think Karl Ravech missed a game, and they said, ‘Would you wanna do it?’ It might have been in St. Louis, I don’t even know. And I said, ‘Let’s just give it some time.’“I’m ready to move on from that part of my life. I’ve done baseball broadcasting since I was 19, professionally.

"Hope u feel better the show is not the same without you get well," another fan wrote.

"Get well Mike. No voice is saying they want the other guy," another fan added.

"Why is everyone against greeny? You all should be ashamed of yourselves. He is my favorite person to watch and listen too. Can’t believe it. Love greeny makes my day better," another fan added.

‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ sells longtime mansion, moves to Florida .
Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman is closing a big chapter in his life. The sprawling home Chapman purchased with his late wife, Beth Chapman, in 2009 for just $750,000 has scored a buyer, The Post has learned. Initially listed back in October for $1.69 million, a pending offer was in the works in November following a $95,000 price cut. The home is expected to close on Monday at the asking price of $1,595,000. The move comes a year after Chapman got married to Francie Frane, who he met six months after Beth’s passing in June 2019 and who also lost her spouse, husband, Bob Frane, in 2018. “I love Colorado — it will always be special to me and Francie,” Chapman, 69, told The Post.
