ESPN is hoping that one of the architects of rock n' roll can bring some new energy to their “Monday Night Football” show with fewer fans in the stands this year. The new season starting Monday will feature a new version of Little Richard's hit “Rip It Up” featuring new instrumentals and backup vocals from the Virginia-based band Butcher Brown. The song replaces Hank Williams Jr.'s “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight," which was repurposed with new lyrics like, “All my rowdy friends are here for Monday night.” Williams' song was used on the show for two periods,

Comments:

Little Richard was a tremendous talent, but ESPN's motivations here are quite clear. Does anyone still subscribe to Woke ESPN?

Give me Hank Williams, Jr. Enough of this groveling to placate black militants. They are not the majority of football-loving Americans. No ticket purchases, team apparel or watching of televised games for me until the NFL stops this nonsense and apologizes to the fans for rubbing our noses in a fake pile of doggy-do.

Little Richard said in his autobiography that homosexuality is something you "catch" when an adult homosexual takes sexual advantage of a child. He attributed his own homosexuality to this. Amazingly, feminist lawyer Gloria Allred said the exact same thing. In his last years, Little Richard often attacked homosexual behavior and admitted that it was major sin. In fact, he even stopped wearing make-up and his outrageous outfits when he heard a preacher say that dressing that way took away glory from God.

Mess with the status quo or throw out all normalizing parts of national culture/mores etc in hopes for some to grab a larger piece of the pie and the "pie" may just lose all its former appeal. Half of love of football was watching the excellence of the players. Those of a race that has 19% more testosterone than the other two races. have been chosen for abilities but the love ends when politics and patriotism get into the mix IMO.

The NFL has disclosed their list of approved names that they will allow players to wear on their helmet bumpers for social justice messaging. Among the names are Jacob Blake, who is accused of sexual assault. The list is apparently fluid, in the sense that new names are being added all the time. Also among the names is that of slain retired St. Louis police officer David Dorn. Dorn was killed in early June by rioters while checking on a friend’s store in St. Louis. The listing of Blake’s name, given his alleged violent history of sexual assault, stands in stark contrast

"I'm hoping that it will be a thriving safe haven for people of color, for Black families in particular," Scott says. The land sits just East of Macon in rural Wilkinson County, Georgia. Scott and her friend, investor and entrepreneur Renee Walters, didn't initially plan on buying a large plot of land, but they had a vision that was clear—to create a safe space for their Black families.

The NFL is back. Spread the word. Thursday night’s season-opening matchup between the Chiefs and Texans attracted 19.3 million viewers between 8 and 11 p.m. That marks a 12.3% drop from last year’s ratings, which ended with an audience of 22 million. Deadline noted that the key 18-49 demographic pulled in a 5.2 rating, falling from last year’s 12.8 mark. It is likely that multiple factors played into the drop, including social justice messages, which have been present, while audience sizes have reduced across all sports in recent months.

William Shakespeare famously observed that “all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.” One of these players, Joe Biden, is currently trying out for the biggest role of his life. Unfortunately, he’s in danger of bombing the audition. He’s flubbing lines, breaking character, and occasionally forgetting the plot. His rambling, often incoherent speech in front of a supportive audience at a church in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on September 3 shows that he’s no longer playing the role of viable presidential candidate. Instead, he’s stumbled into the last scene of Shakespeare’s “strange, eventful history” — “second childishness and mere oblivion.”
