The Hidden Cost of NFL Ownership

When Gloria Estefan made the deal with Stephen M. Ross to become a minority owner in the Miami Dolphins in June, the terms of the deal were not released.

Anyone who watched ESPN this weekend, though, saw video proof of the price Ms. Estefan paid to play the game, so to speak.

Above is footage of her singing a duet with Hank Williams, Jr. The two are singing Hank's customized Dolphins-Jets version of "All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight." (The country star has, of course, performed the opening theme to Monday Night Football since 1991, and has won four Emmy awards.)

Notice the lyrics "Esta lista para football?" and "El Monday Night Party!"

Rush Limbaugh, consider yourself warned.
