ESPN Gets Rid Of Hank Williams Jr.’s Monday Night Football Theme FOREVER

We will  will never ever hear again hear King Teatard Hank Williams’ opening theme to Monday Night Football on ESPN. (Oh boo-fucking-hoo)

Are you ready for some football? Hank Williams Jr. isn’t anymore. The country singer and ESPN each took credit for the decision Thursday morning to ax his classic intro to “Monday Night Football.” The network had pulled the song from the game earlier this week after Williams made an analogy to Adolf Hitler while discussing President Barack Obama on Fox News on Monday morning. “After reading hundreds of e-mails, I have made MY decision,” Williams said in a statement to The Associated Press. “By pulling my opening Oct 3rd, You (ESPN) stepped on the Toes of The First Amendment Freedom of Speech, so therefore Me, My Song, and All My Rowdy Friends are OUT OF HERE. It’s been a great run.” But ESPN’s statement said: “We have decided to part ways with Hank Williams Jr. We appreciate his contributions over the past years. The success of Monday Night Football has always been about the games and that will continue.”

Maybe the Tea Party can use it with alittle re-write.

“Are you ready to be an insane idiot?”

I like it.  It works.
