Is Pink Ready for Some Football?!?

by at . Comments

You might say that NBC is tickled pink about the return of the NFL to its prime time lineup. And not simply because the network is excited.

Also due to the fact that pop singer, Pink, will be cranking out the opening song.

Britney's new pal will welcome viewers to the telecast with "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night," sung to the tune of Joan Jett's "I Hate Myself for Loving You." A song with which we're sure not a single football fan is familiar.

"Pink is a tremendous talent with crossover appeal," said SNF producer Fred Gaudelli. "And she's also from Philly, so she knows what being a football fan is all about."

Translation: she hates Terrell Owens.

But, still, is Pink the best choice for this gig? Or would, we don't know, ANYone else be? Perhaps Ashlee Simpson, the songtress who was once booed out of the Rose Bowl? That was enjoyable.

Or maybe Nick Lachey, Ashlee's former brother-in-law? The NFL, after all, could use a heartfelt break-up song to attract a female audience.

In the end, however, we'd have chosen Whitney Houston. Just to throw Osama a bone.
