Street Talk SNF Intro Will be Sizzling!

Football fans will have a new piece of eye candy to drool over as “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” is performed this season on NBC’s Sunday Night Football.

For the first time since 2007, Faith Hill (and her legs) won’t be appearing on your TV sets to an opening theme full of product placement and a catchy jingle to encompass each week’s matchup. However, NBC did a fantastic job replacing hill, bringing on another musician that looks just as good as she sings, six-time Grammy Award-winner Carrie Underwood.

The NBC Sunday Night Football crew will kick off the season on a Thursday, airing the inaugural matchup for the 2013 season between your defending Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens and the Denver Broncos. The Ravens will also have two other appearances on SNF, Thanksgiving evening against the Pittsburgh Steelers and Week 16 versus the New England Patriots.

Prior to being placed on IR with a designation to return last season, Ray Lewis was featured in the opener but disappeared shortly after his injury, when he was replaced by New York Jets center Nick Mangold. Lewis wasn’t the only injured player to receive the boot – injured cornerback Darrell Revis was also pulled from the intro after suffering a season-ending ACL injury.

Fear not Ravens fans, on this season’s into, NBC is still giving the team some love as Terrell Suggs will now be featured along with 12 other NFL superstars. Also appearing on the intro are Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald, Saints TE Jimmy Graham, Lions WR Calvin Johnson, Colts QB Andrew Luck, Broncos QB Peyton Manning, Giants QB Eli Manning, Packers LB Clay Matthews, Eagles RB LeSean McCoy, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, Cowboys DE DeMarcus Ware, Texans DE J.J. Watt and 49ers LB Patrick Willis.

Somehow my comment re Big C's point about "why is it always country music" got dropped. Country music is reputedly America's favorite music type, surpassing classic rock in music surveys last year. Whether or not its the most popular or 2nd or 3rd, it has great national appeal, and Faith Hill & Carrie Underwood attract a lot of attention with their great looks and adequate voices. A no-brainer by NBC.

That was supposed to appear as "reputedly", but no spellcheck to yell at me.

Umm... Here's a thought. I mean just out of left field. What is this horses#$t with football and country music? I mean honestly football is the 2nd least country sport after the NBA. I really don't get it. There are literally TONS of hot singers out there, why is always country music... #cornyashell

Faith Hill was great, but time marches on. She may still look great to oldsters, but Carrie provides more sex appeal to adolescents. Next to Miranda Lambert, Carrie is my favorite Country Diva, so no complaints about this move. btw: Has anyone figured out the relevance of the first post, above?

They ought to get Joan Jett, who wrote the song that this is based on and originally sang it, to do the modified version on television. I understand changing the lyrics to refer to football, but I think the song was much better when it was a rock and roll song sung by a Baltimore girl with a little edge to her voice. The country cover versions are bland. I get that "Are You Ready for Some Football?" sort of defined this genre and was a country song, but that doesn't mean every song on every over the air nighttime broadcast until the end of time has to be a country song. Rock and roll has much broader appeal, and this song was written as a rock song.

Wow!! This thread is stupid!! You people act like 5 yr olds fighting over nothing. It's a football game for God sake! Both teams worked hard in that playoff game! The better team won! Period.
