It is truly the end of an era in Monday Night Football. ESPN has made the decision to no longer use Hank Williams, Jr.'s "Are You Ready for Some Football?" opening, effective tonight, after Williams made some controversial comments on Fox News' Fox and Friends.
USA Today's Michael Hiestand gave readers a blow by blow of Williams' comments:
Williams, perhaps best known for his "are you ready for some football?" lead-in to ESPN's Monday Night Football, Monday compared this summer's so-called golf summit between Obama and House Speaker John Boehner as "one of the biggest political mistakes ever."
But that wasn't all Williams had to say. He continued on:
"It would be like Hitler playing golf with (Israeli leader) Benjamin Netanyahu."
And there it is. Williams had firmly placed his foot in his mouth.
Williams is far from the only person with ties to sports that has put his foot in his mouth recently: here are the 10 biggest "foot in mouth" moments.
