And now he is gone for good, but he claims that it was his choice and admits he doesn't know how the first amendment works and how he probably never read it anyway: http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/7066449/espn-hank-williams-jr-theme-song-return-monday-night-football


    On his own website, Williams said he was the one who made the decision.

    "After reading hundreds of e-mails, I have made MY decision," he wrote. "By pulling my opening Oct 3rd, You (ESPN) stepped on the Toes of The First Amendment Freedom of Speech, so therefore Me, My Song, and All My Rowdy Friends are OUT OF HERE. It's been a great run."

Well that makes Hank a free agent now. There is another "LIVE" show on Monday night too. You never know!

Be careful what you wish for!

If they're going to make it official that no one cares about the competition, then what better way to kick off the newly-relaunched NXT than having the Sandman cane the shit out of him? #thereisnone

I'd love it, but it wouldn't happen; Vince is a Republican.

Well, at least it'd be an upgrade over Nickleback.

Just barely but still.

http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shutdown_corner/post/Hank-Williams-Jr-wrote-a-new-song-about-Fox-New?urn=nfl-wp9130

Hank "Jazz Hands" Williams has released what is basically a diss track about Fox News and ESPN.


    The country music singer wrote the song on Friday and is scheduled to release it late Monday or early Tuesday. In its third verse, he takes issue with how Fox took his words out of context: "So Fox 'n Friends wanna put me down/Ask for my opinion/Twist it all around."
    If it didn't mean having to listen to Hank Williams Jr. speak about anything other than music or Alabama football, I'd be interested to hear how he thinks Fox twisted his opinion. After all, there are only so many ways to take the quote: "It'd be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu."


Yes, he is accusing Fox and Friends of taking "It'd be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu" when referring to Obama and Boehner respectively, out of context. No way, Hank. The context was pretty clear. They gave him a chance to backtrack and he kept digging a deeper hole.
