SportsFilter: The Thursday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

Thankfully, the Hank Williams song is gone from MNF for good. We should also be grateful that ESPN infringed on Williams's free speech rights*.

How about ESPN gets in a different band each week to do a cover of "Heavy Action", and give Johnny Pearson's family a bit more cash? Or go back to the Bob's Band theme from the early 70s?

Farley's Bocephus (Hank Williams Jr.) sketch. Poor quality, but it's hard to find this one.

Listen, man.. I sing music for working people. I know it ain't the most sophisticated stuff in the world, but.. it comes from the heart.

Lay off Bocephus, folks.

Jump ahead to 00:46 to see FIFA's new Impact Engine' accurately display Arsenal's season so far.

Or watch from the start to see Messi try to run off a slight injury.

After what he did to Family Tradition in 2008, fuck that guy.
