Detroit sports fans faced a dilemma Monday night: Watch the Tigers battle the Texas Rangers in extra innings of the American League Championship Series on Fox or watch Barry Sanders and the Selected of God choir introduce Monday Night Football on ESPN?

If you chose the latter, you're in luck. Responding to repeated demands, the four-letter network finally uploaded the MNF introduction yesterday afternoon, and it is embedded here for your viewing pleasure.

"Detroit's soul isn't in the streets of the city, it's in the hearts of the people," Sanders says in the clip as the choir and soul singer Jimmy Scott add some gravitas. "I know; I played here for ten years."

Sanders stepped up after ESPN fired longtime MNF performer Hank Williams Jr. for controversial comments he made about President Barack Obama. While Kid Rock may have missed his friend, we were happy Detroit got the opportunity to break the mold.

Enjoy. ... ry_sa.html
