NFL officially cuts ties with Hank Williams Jr After 20 long seasons of MNF

ESPN announced earlier today that they will be pulling the intro "Are You Ready For Some Football" from the Monday Night Football broadcasts moving forward, after Williams made some derogatory remarks towards President Obama on a radio program earlier today. 

In a political discussion, Williams voluntarily brought up President Barack Obama's golf game with Speaker of the House John Boehner during this summer's debt ceiling negotiations, calling it "one of the biggest political mistakes ever" and invoking Adolf Hitler.  Williams said it would be like Hitler playing golf with the Prime Minister of Israel.  He also called the president and vice president Biden "the enemy".

Williams apparently plans to run for republican Senate of Tennessee in 2012.

His music has graced the intro of every Monday night football game for the past 20 years.  It's going to be a lot different without him.  This is an unfortunate turn of events for the NFL.
