ESPN Sees The Light, Brings Hank Williams Jr. Back For Monday Night Football!

 

ESPN is bringing Williams back to once again provide the intro song for their “Monday Night Football” broadcast.

ESPN fired Williams in 2011, and pulled his “Are You Ready for Some Football?” song from their broadcast, after he made disparaging comments about then President Obama.

Williams contradicts ESPN’s version and says he quit, after they stepped on the toes of the First Amendment.

“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.” said ESPN senior vice president of events and studio production Stephanie Druley
