ESPN Will Give You Fries With That, Not Much Else

Illustration for article titled ESPN Will Give You Fries With That, Not Much Else

How nicely does ESPN treat its employees? We've been forwarded a memo that demonstrates their level of appreciation to a crew that has to endure an association with Tony Kornheiser:

To: EES-ESPN Domestic Subject: Monday Night Football Employee Salute — November 1st


As is often heard on Monday Night Football, "upon further review" the original MNF celebration meal coupon plan has raised a number of unanticipated, administrative issues. In an effort to ease the burden, the use of a meal coupon will not be necessary. Instead, we will provide an instant credit of up to $5.00 on the purchase of a single meal in any of our Connecticut cafeterias from noon to closing tomorrow. We recognize that this is not as expansive an effort as originally planned but it is still a great way to express our sincere thanks for the record-breaking performance and continued success of MNF on ESPN.

If anyone has any questions, please direct them to me. I apologize for any confusion this change in direction has caused. Thanks.


$5? Woooooo hoooooo! Still, it could have been worse: We hear the original plan was just to give all the employees some leftover phones.
