After ESPN parted ways with Hank Williams Jr. this week, everyone is wondering what will replace his “Are you ready for some football?” song as the opening for MNF.It looks like Barry Sanders will do the honours, but not in the form of a country song. Instead, MNF will open up with a video preview of the game, and Sanders will be featured.

ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz told the Detroit Free Press:

“This is the format we’ll likely use the remainder of the season. We haven’t made any decisions beyond that.”
