Gloria Estefan Is In Fact Ready For Some Football

Gloria Estefan recently recorded a colabo with Hank Williams Jr. for the football classic, "Are You Ready For Some Football", which will open all three nationally televised games this year (two on ESPN and a Monday Nighter against the Jets on October 12). It should be fun to hear her legendary vocals, bearing that undeniable Miami Cuban lilt, alongside the venerable and iconic hillbilly's southern twang.

The announcement comes hot on the heels of Gloria and her hubby Emilio's recently announced deal making them minority owners in the Miami Dolphins franchise, which you no doubt already read about here. What do the Estefans, who have 19 Grammy awards combined, know about being owners -- even minority owners -- in the NFL? Not a damn thing. But then again, even 90 years as an owner didn't seem to teach Wayne Huizenga shit.

Estefans, if you're listening, way to go! Now can you please find out just what the hell we were thinking when we drafted Pat White?
