ESPN Returning HANK WILLIAMS Jr. To MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL!!!



ESPN says they are bringing back country star HANK WILLIAMS  Jr. to sing the theme song to  MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL!!!
SPORTS ILLUSTRATED Magazine reports ESPN parted ways with Williams in 2011 after he make some remarks about former President BARACK OBAMA following a golf outing with then-Rep. House Speaker John Boehner.
Williams compared the outing to a meeting between ISRAELI Prime Minister BENJAMIN NETANYAHU and GERMAN dictator ADOLPH HITLER

YES; you DID read that CORRECTLY.

HANK WILLIAMS Jr. compared President OBAMA to ADOLPH HITLER, and; ESPN is bringing him BACK to MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL!!!
Williams' new version of the "All My Rowdy Friends" theme will debut on Monday, Sept. 11 before the game between the New Orleans Saints and the Minnesota Vikings. The new video was filmed on Sunday in Nashville, Tennessee.
ESPN Senior Vice President of Events and Studio Production STEPHEN DRULEY said;
“I think it’s a return to our past in that it’s such an iconic song associated with football, It was the original," Druley said. "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.”
Williams will perform the theme each week, and two other artists will be included later in the season as an attempt to feature contemporary music artists.
HANK WILLIAMS Jr. said;
“I hope there will be some happy people on Monday night again. It feels natural, fulfilling and satisfying at this point when you’ve kind of done it all.”
