With Hank Williams Jr. being removed from Monday Night Football by ESPN, the network had to come up with something else for the intro to its game this week between the Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears. Rather than use some other cheesy song and video, ESPN went with a video about the resolve of Detroit that was narrated by Barry Sanders. Take a look:
The video was well-received and was a big upgrade over being asked if I'm ready for football. Who knows if ESPN will be able to keep up great videos like this week in and week out, but if they can pull it off on a weekly basis nobody will mind the old intro being kicked to the curb.
