MNF Theme Pulled After Hank Williams Compares Obama To Hitler



I’ve got bad news for those who get their jollies from the Monday Night Football theme, you won’t be hearing it tonight. This is because “Fox and Friends” wanted to reach new heights in political discourse and called on the expertise of Hank Williams Jr. to discuss politics this morning. Unfortunately for everyone, Hank got a little rowdy and compared Obama to Hitler. ESPN was none too pleased with this and for that reason they have pulled his intro from tonight’s telecast. Here’s the statement ESPN released about this situation.

“While Hank Williams, Jr. is not an ESPN employee, we recognize that he is closely linked to our company through the open to Monday Night Football.  We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and as a result we have decided to pull the open from tonight’s telecast.”

Shit, you just can’t be saying those kinds of things on the air.
