ESPN Pulls “MNF Song” After Hank Williams Likens Obama To Hitler

If you like hearing the "Monday Night Football" song before the game on Monday night, you might have to watch it on youtube from now on.

For the first time in 20 years, the "Monday Night Football" theme song will not air before the Monday Night game, ESPN announced.

Hank Williams appeared on "Fox & Friends" Monday (That was his first mistake) and he got political.  Hank Williams backed McCain and Palin in 2008.

He commented on John Boehner playing golf with Obama is like Netanyahu (Israeli Prime Minister) and Hitler.

Fox surprisingly distanced themselves from his comment and said they did not understand the comment.    Williams said "I'm glad you do not understand.  They are the enemy."  Fox then asked who is the enemy and without hesitation Williams stated "Obama and Biden.  The 3 Stooges."  Guess Williams can't count, can he?

After an outcry on social media sites, ESPN quickly responded with a statement;

"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."

This is not going to go away.  I will be surprised if ESPN uses the song for the rest of the year or ever again.  I'm all about freedom of speech but comparing someone to Hitler, is straight up lame.

We wonder who ESPN will turn to when it comes to recording a new song?  Why do I have a feeling they are already calling Justin Timberlake?-DocFB

We knew this story had more holes in it than a golf course.  Yes, I said it.

So, I'm sure by now you guys saw the story posted about Whitney Houston being banned from Prince shows and attending several although on my Twitter Account I said it was 2 shows....

Well, Prince and his camp reached out to us to say this:

 "Whitney Houston is always welcome at Prince shows 4 all of eternity. Seeing her at 2 shows at The Forum in LA was a treat, especially when she sang with Chaka Khan and danced with Prince during his set. We love her always."

And there you have it.  Whitney is not banned....and welcome for all eternity.-Dr.FB

Diagnosis: Get Well Whitney

 The ban from ABC of Adam Lambert appears to be lifted. Well, at least for one performance.  The American Idol contestant will appear on "The View" on December 10th.

He will do an interview and a performance on the talk show.  I have a feeling ABC wants a public apology from him on their own network.  I am sure he will get it but I still don't think it will change him not being on Jimmy Kimmel or ABC's new years Rockin Eve with Dick Clark.

What do you think of ABC's about face on letting him back on the network?  Glambert?  More like Lamebert lately.-Dr.FB

Question: Are You Banning Or Deleting Chris Brown From Your Playlists???

Just a curious question out there to you all;

Are you deleting Chris Brown from your play list or listening to his music?

Are not allowing your son or daughter to listen to his stuff or taking it away from them?

Just curious about these things and your thoughts on them.-Dr.FB
