How long can ESPN continue to produce top-notch MNF intros

ESPN wasted not time making Hank Williams Jr. look outdated with their Barry Sanders intro Monday night. I wasn't home in time to see it, but it has finally surfaced:

The intro was well thought out and much more appropriate than the antiquated Williams song given the Lions' absence from Monday Night Football and the city's struggles. The high quality of the initial short leaves me to wonder if other cities' will get similar treatment and how long ESPN can keep up the production value.

If there's one thing TV people know, however, is story lines.
