For the first time since the late 1980s, no one will be asking if you’re ready for some football at the beginning of tonight’s broadcast of Monday Night Football on ESPN. The network has yanked Hank Williams Jr’s preparatory song from the show following comments he made this morning that were critical of failed President Barack Obama.
Williams, who sings the lead-in song to the game each week, criticized the president for his golf summit with House Speaker John Boehner this summer.
“It would be like Hitler playing golf with (Israeli leader) Benjamin Netanyahu,” Williams told “Fox & Friends.”
Of course, Obama is nothing like Hitler. That’s why anyone who offers any criticism of him must be quickly and severely punished by the media he controls. ESPN Golf commentator Paul Azinger was reprimanded for noting President Downgrade’s obsessive golf schedule. ESPN thought nothing of their radio hosts giggling and egging on convicted rapist Mike Tyson while he fantasized about raping Sarah Palin, though.
Screw Monday Night Football and their second-rate leftover games.
“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.”
Spoiler Alert: The Colts will continue sucking without Manning tonight.
