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:

But that wasn't all Williams had to say. He continued on:

"It would be like Hitler playing golf with (Israeli leader) Benjamin Netanyahu."
