ESPN fired Hank Williams Jr. from its Monday Night Football program. That means no more of the iconic, motivating, get-your-blood-pumping song that asks us “Are you ready for some football?” The song has been synonymous with MNF since it aired on ABC and who couldn’t use some motivation on a Monday night? Well, no more.
Sports fans are clearly the least-empathetic creatures on earth. Don’t believe me? Then just ask Miami Dolphins quarterback, Chad Henne. On Aug. 1, Henne was booed by fans during a scrimmage at Sun Life Stadium. These jeers soon turned into a “We want Orton” chant, referring to Denver Broncos quarterback, Kyle Orton.
