This post is more of a obligation than honour. I don't want to talk about them, and I'm sure you don't really want to read about them. What do you do though, I mean you can't start/join a fan group than ignore it because the team sucks.
Que the music. Something maybe Chariots of Fire. No no something alittle heavier like Boom-POD. No thats a bit too heavy. Something like Right Now-Van Halen, yeah thas it. Or Moment of Truth-Survivor. Heck if it was good enough for The Karate Kid (see video) its good enough for me. Here click one or cut-n-paste one of these in another window and we will begin.
Let it play alittle. Wait until you're feelin it.
Alright then lets begin. We are fans dammit. We are loyal to the cause though thick and thin. The team is down and so are we, but this is the time when we prove our devotion. We're not band wagon bandits, we bleed blue and white. We were there for the Gretzky high stick-non call. WARNING!!!!!!!! This is gonna hurt alittle so watch at your own risk.
That son-of-a-BIT**. And the he scores. DAMMIT!!!
Be not dismayed though friends. There have been some great times as well. We were there for the Borschevski game 7 winner. Enjoy my friends.
Alright, lets return our focus to the present, to the here and now. We have been there for the highs and the lows. Let those others ride during the high times, and jump on the band wagons when things turn around, cause when they do turn it around, and they will, it will be so much sweeter for those of us that have been through the lows.
And let those dirty Sens and Hab fans get their jabs in. To them I say your day will come, and I will be first in line to kick you right in the balls when it does.
Finally brothers (if the music stopped just start it again I'm almost done) hope for today. This season is still very young and we are not out of it yet. This week we will get Gus back, and with him hope and confidence in our goaltending will return. Beyond this, next month Kessel will make his long awaited debut. We will finally have an offensive threat. When this happens all will see our glorious return to hockey prominence.
I hope that helps. Make a comment on your favorite moment in our somewhat glorious past.
