For a fanbase that screamed "OZZ-IE OZZ-IE" about a billion times, I'm surprised this chant hasn't really surfaced yet.

I've heard the "JIMMY HOWARD" chants, but that has too many syllables.

I think he prefers "HOW-IE," given he has it on his mask. And I agree. Kid needs the same support from us.

Yea it was good hearing the 'Jimmy Howard' chant but I think a simple 'Howie' would be better as well.

I always try to get a De-troit Red-Wings Goal-ie Jimm-y How-ard chant going when I'm at the Joe.

Heard that one and a few others tonight at the game. I was thinking that to myself, too, that we need to get a standard chant going. There was some "How-ward" and some "Jim-my How-ard" and some "Let's go Howard" but I think we need something other than a new play on the Ozzie chant. He's really become a fan favorite, the crowd absolutely loved him tonight.

I loved the "Jimmy Howard" chants. It's different than the Ozzie chants.

He doesn't get a "Howie Howie" chant until he beats up an insufferable, arrogant goalie at center ice as his former roommie avenges his bff's broken face.

Until then, "Jimmy, Jimmy" or "Jimmy Howard" or "James Russel Howard III" (if we can get a good clapping rhythm going) is certainly merited. His play has been fantabulous.

When you're right, you're right. And in this case, you're right.

I'd have to agree with "HOWIE! HOWIE! HOWIE!" I also believe you folks on here that go to Wings games often to start that!

I've heard the 'JIMMY' and 'HOWIE' chants going at the Joe last year. I'm a horrible fan this year, and haven't been to a game yet, so I'm not sure what the kids are saying now.

I think either chant is fine, and both will pump him up.

He does get some credit towards this status by whooping on the poster child...doesn't he?

That was classic and my avatar for quite a while. Huge brownie points from me. :)
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Oh, certainly. No doubt about it. He gets credit.

You know, just now it hit me that I was wrong above. Ozzie wasn't fighting Roy as Mac was beating Turtle. Vernon was. Ozzie was a year later.

So now that we've got that straightened out, I think we just need to get everyone on the same page as what to yell. And we need Jimmy to get into one of those mad goalie fights. All we need now is a serious enemy...
