"Monday Night Football" is an awesome How I Met Your Mother episode. So the beginning of the episode is a little sad when a friend of the gang dies, which makes them miss the football game. I love how they go the day without trying to find out what happened at the football game. I love how that boy blackmails Marshall or else he'll tell Marshall what happened at the game. I love how Robin tries to avoid all the sports news on her show. I love how Ted makes that thing where he can't see or hear anyone. I love how Barney handcuffs himself to Ted's wall. I love how everyone finds out the winner anyways. I give this episode a 9/10.
