I certainly wasn't ready

For the beginnings of Monday Night Football. For those who've never seen it (or couldn't care less), country pop legend Hank Williams starts every broadcast singing a cute little ditty with the tagline "Are you ready for some football?" It got popular, and each year it gets a little more produced, and a little more surreal. Until...

I'm watching MNF for the first time this year, since the hometown Patriots are playing (and winning, I might add). The intro for this year features Williams, his longtime fiddle player, Stevie E and Clarence Clemmons from the E Street Band, Joe Perry of Aerosmith, drummer Questlove, and (wait for it...) Little Richard. And is that Flavor Flav??

HUNH? Every week it seems my surreal-o-meter needs to be recalibrated...

I remember that ?uestlove had a gigantic post about this recording session some time ago on his MySpace blog.
