Monday Night Football will sound different....

No Hank Williams Jr this season with " All My Rowdy Friends are Here on Monday Night"....

With the stands either empty or limited in seating....the league thought the " Rhody Fans" lyrics wouldn't be appropriate....

Instead it will be Little Richard's rendition of " Rip It Up" with the help of The "Butcher Brown" Band

Hank Williams Jr started doing MNF back in 1989....

In 2011 he was pulled off after some controversial remarks about then President Obama.....

He came back in 2017 at the start of the President Trump Era....

And now he is gone again....at least for now...

Football is back though....and we are, indeed, "Ready for Some Football" !!!
