Watch: Pittsburgh Connection to Vintage MNF Opening

But sometimes, the most entertaining part of the evening often occurred before kickoff, when a variety of entertainers appeared in award-winning skits to begin the broadcast.
This one, which includes a Steelers mention and stars the late Leslie Nielsen, is one of our favorites. Here's hoping Pittsburgh turns the lights back off in Cincinnati Monday night.
