Hank Williams Jr. will be bringing his rowdy friends back to ESPN on Monday nights this fall.
He will debut a new version of "All My Rowdy Friends," featuring the catchphrase "Are you ready for some football?" before the first Monday night game of the season, between the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings in Minneapolis on Sept. 11.
According to ESPN, the network previously pulled the song midseason in 2011, following controversial comments made by Williams on Fox News that compared then-President Barack Obama golfing with then-Rep. House Speaker John Boehner to a meeting of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Adolf Hitler. Williams also called Obama and Joe Biden "the enemy."
The original song had been on Monday Night Football since 1989.
Now, follow me here:
Hank performed in the Superdome less than two weeks ago. The New Orleans Saints have NOT won a Superbowl since Hank was pulled from Monday Night Football. His new version of his song will debut before the first Monday night game which will include the Saints (cough, cough). I call it right now, the Saints are heading to the Superbowl this year. I can only hope right?!
