A Chant I'd Love to Hear...

19 May 2009 - 05:23 PM

There've been a couple threads lately discussing some of classy things Blackhawks fans chant when they play Detroit. But if we win (and that's hardly a given), I'd love to see Wings fans adopt the following chant, to the tune of "When the Saints Go Marching In":

"You won the Cup
In black and white
You won the Cup in black and white
You won the Cup before color
You won the Cup in black and white"

In English football (or soccer for us Yanks), Arsenal fans sing this when they play their arch-rivals Tottenham, who (ironically enough) also last won the English league in 1961. Whether you love or hate soccer, I think this is a great, stfu putdown.

Imagine: time winding down in Game 5 (or Game 7) and the Joe starts singing this en masse. It would be just beautiful. Forget braindead "Detroit Sucks" chants and auto industry putdowns; this is clever, amusing, and cuts right to the heart of the issue: our team is better than yours.

Feel free to contribute other ideas for anti-Hawks chants as well.

I've been looking all over NHL.com (heck, it's even in the banner Matt has scrolling across the top of the page advertising Winter Classic merch), but it doesn't seem to be listed anymore. Are they sold out? Anyone know where else they might be procured?

Championship Schadenfreude

I'll be honest: As happy as I am for all of our guys, one of the most enjoyable elements of winning a championship is watching your hated rivals foam with jealousy and bitterness.

In that spirit, I looked at just a couple topics on Blues and Hawks messageboards, and gleaned a few gems:

In a topic entitled "Things that are more enjoyable than watching the Wings win the cup":

"Having your house foreclosed

Being fired

Finding out your girlfriend is a dyke

Finding out she won't let you join in

Having a branding iron to the groin

Letting a cow give you a cleveland steamer

Learning you have terminal cancer


"Hopefully their plane with crash tonight on the way back to the s*** hole of America, Detoilet."

From the Hawks' main messageboard:

"I hope Detroit riots itself into the ground tonight. May the city burn."

"Detroit sucks and wouldn't have made it past the 1st round if they played the Hawks."

I haven't looked at any Avs or Leafs boards, but I'm sure you'd find similar sentiments.

Feel free to post additional idiotic, bitter comments or excuses from rival fans, co-workers, or online sycophants. Conspiracy theories? The Wings were just lucky? Detroit still sucks? Post 'em all here, and laugh. Laugh long and hard. After all, everyone hates us, and we don't care. Because we are the champions, and their worst nightmare has come true. Again.
