Best Sports Chants
« on: February 26, 2009, 11:26:04 AM »
I don't know why it popped in my head this morning, but I started hearing the "1940" chant crowds used to do against the Rangers.

I'm a Ranger fan, but I always liked that taunt -- showed an appreciation for the history of the game, I guess.

Any other good traditional taunts/chants/cheers that rivals use on each other?

It's the only chant that breaks out at random events......weddings, concerts, Red Sox games not vs. the Yankees.

If I had the wings of a sparrow,
And I had the arse of a crow,
I'd fly over Ipswich tomorrow,
And shit on the bastards below.

Shit on, shit on, shit on the bastards below, below,
Shit on, shit on, shit on the bastards below.

You find a dead rat and you think it's a treat

I'm not sure of what exactly is the best, but I do know that the worst is "You can't do that,"  clap, clap, clap-clap-clap.

If I were in charge for a day, I would ban that cheer, and sentence anyone who dares disobey me to a life severe nipple torture.

The junior hockey variation on the last one in a blowout is "Warm up the bus!", very appropriate considering the miserable weather.

The old Rangers' chant of "Potvin Sucks" was a classic. I saw Potvin on an interview once say he heard it at a Knicks game.

Only. "scoreboard" is usually done in response to a stupid chant from the opposition.

Not sure if it's just a southern thing or not, but down here people don't even chant it. They just start jingling keys.

The old ECW chant of "You fucked up! You fucked up!" when someone would mess up a move was also hilarious. One of my crowning moments of fandom was getting about half a section of fans chanting that at a football game after the visiting team committed a penalty.

Read a piece on Michigan (U of or Michigan State, can't remember) hockey game.

A last minute goalie call-up skates out for the game--no name on the back of his jersey.

Fans start chanting "Who are you? Who are you? Who are you?"

Still makes me laugh.

Did I read somewhere that Rangers fans still chant "Potvin Sucks" regardless of who the Rangers are playing??

At Michigan every time the lackluster basketball team won a game against MSU the fans would chant "Just like football."

Except that doesn't work anymore.

This year, State won in basketball and started chanting "Just like football." Except State fans are dumb because State has lost 6 of the the last 7 contests.

Oh and Lets Go Red Wings is huge in Detroit. You can always hear it from Wings fans at away games. When the Lions are having a bad game, which is always, sometimes the chant breaks out there. It's been known to start up at Tigers games as well.

At the MSU and U of M hockey games during the Great Lakes Invitational every time they would say the game is sponsored by "so and so" everyone from both teams would yell "Who Cares?" It's been going on for years.

My boy Fly would agree that the chant at the Plymouth Whalers games is a classic:

Puck goes into the crowd.

PA guy: That puck brought to you by Zubor Buick.

Fans: Who cares!!!!

PA guy: Zubor cares!!!!

Fans: So what!!!!

Speaking of hockey game sponsors, I wonder if Sheehan's Rust Proofing is still in business in Peterborough, N.H. :D

When I was in HS, there was a rumor that the opposing team's stud forward couldn't read.

We went with "Hooked on Phonics Worked For Me!"

That was fun, if incredibly mean.

HS hockey team I covered once had a student section that would do the Ruff Ryders Anthem as a chant after they scored:

"Stop. Drop. Shut 'em down open up shop! Oh-Oh, that's how the (team name) roll!"

That's what it is. Like I said, Zubor sponsors the GLI, and the MSU/U of M games at the Joe.

Student section at the local college does this one: When the score is 31-13 (or something similar), they start chanting "Palin-drome, palin-drome."
