Y’all remember this don’t ya ?
Well, guess what ? Hank Williams Jr is bringing all his rowdy friends back to Monday Night Football six years after ESPN dropped him for his controversial comments about Batears Obama
ESPN says a new version of Williams’ longtime ‘MNF’ theme song and its “Are You Ready For Some Football? “ catchphrase will debut before the first regular-season Monday night game – a September 11 match-up between the New Orleans Saints (Who Dat !) and Minnesota Vikings.
The network said in a statement that it’s bringing back what it calls the “most iconic music video in sports television history” because fans missed it.
Stephanie Druley, ESPN’s senior vice president of events and studio production, told the USA TODAY NETWORK-Tennessee.
“I think it’s a return to our past in that it’s such an iconic song associated with football . It was the original. It belongs to Monday Night Football. It really is about returning to what fans know. It’s a Monday night party and that’s what we’re all hoping to get back to. I’m sure there’ll be some backlash, but I’m not concerned. It was the right time. We discussed it internally and it was just the right time to bring him back. “
You bet it’s the right time. It’s called WINNING !
