ESPN Pulls Hank Williams Jr's "Are You Ready For Some Football?" From MNF After Williams Compared Obama To Hitler

All your rowdy friends are going to be confused as to what to do tonight. Earlier today, Hank Williams Jr. appeared on FOX and Friends where he compared President Obama to Adolf Hitler. Surprisingly, ESPN wasn’t too excited to hear that. From the ESPN Media Zone:

“While Hank Williams, Jr. is not an ESPN employee, we recognize that he is closely linked to our company through the open to Monday Night Football.  We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and as a result we have decided to pull the open from tonight’s telecast.”

So, is this the end of an era? Will Hank Williams Jr go the way of Rush Limbaugh?
