Dear Hank Williams Jr.,
Well this is just great. How am I supposed to know if I'm ready for some football if you're not there to ask me? But that's just me being selfish. Sometimes, comparing the President to Hitler has consequences, and I should be grateful that patriots like you are willing to shoulder those consequences. Look at you, sticking it to the man:
"By pulling my opening Oct 3rd, You (ESPN) stepped on the Toes of The First Amendment Freedom of Speech, so therefore Me, My Song, and All My Rowdy Friends are OUT OF HERE. It's been a great run."
Nice try, freedom oppressors at ESPN. You thought you fired HWJ, but that's just too bad because he quits! I guess you'll think again next time you try to take a poop on civil liberties.
You know, HWJ, it would have been nice if you had mentioned other freedom fighters in your family while you had the spotlight. It's not all about you. Hank III is out among the people in West Virginia defending the arts. His cameo in "The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia" has shed light on the the failure of the film to capture the bright side of being a meth addled hillbilly:
“Well I really don’t support that movie man. I mean, they promoted more the dark side–the addiction, the bad stuff–they didn’t really promote the creative side of the Whites. And this is no disrespect to Jesco and the family at all. Its more of the people that made it should have concentrated a little bit more on the creativity, and the good vibes that the White family bring to the table. Yeah, we all have problems with addiction, but they made that a little too dark for me. I’ve only seen a couple of clips of it, just enough to rub me raw.”
Did you hear that, HWJ? Hank III has been rubbed raw! I think we can both agree that nobody wants that. If you're looking for a cause, now that asking us if we're ready for some football is off the table, I urge you to stand up for the dying art of drunken mountain clogging. Solidarity among Hanks is very important.
So What? You're famous.
