The Ballad of Andrew Raycroft


To the tune "Hey Jude" by The Beatles:

Hey D, don't make it bad

Take the rebound, get it to center

Remember to show some integrity and heart

Then you can start to make it better

Hey Team, where are your legs?

You left them at the Molson Center

You let that Alfie get under your skin

I showed some heart, things didn't get better

And any time you cough up the puck, hey team, you f*cks

I'm carrying the team upon my shoulders

For Bernier you know that it's a fool with the tools

But gets colder and colder

Na na na na na na na na na

Hey team, you let me down

My save percentage ain't getting better

Can't let them come in 3 on 1 all game

That's why I'm writing this suicide letter

So take the puck and put it in, hey team, let's win

Maybe we should get back Christian Ruutu

And don't you know that it's just you, hey team, you fools

Maybe it is I who should score some goals for you

Na na na na na na na na na

Hey team, you shit the bed

Sure the Oilers could play much better

Remember to remove your head from your ass

When we play Boston, we'll fair much better, better, better, better, better, oh yeah!!

Na na na na-na-na na, na-na-na na, you fools

Na na na na-na-na na, na-na-na na, Steve drools


Nothing much good to say about the Sens game except that Raycroft was the best Canuck. The team showed up flat and got burned for it. Pavol Demitra finally got to play on line 2 and he looked pretty good with Kesler and Raymond. Samuelsson looked alright on line 3. Perhaps this is Demo's time to move into the top 6. The chemistry is there. It was bound to happen sooner or later.

Check out Krista's "Devils Went Down To Georgia" remake of the Charlie Daniels classic here. That's why I decided to go with the Raycroft ballad here. It's all about inspiration and stuff.

My 3 Stars:

1. Brian Elliot's left nut

2. Brian Elliot's right nut

3. Vancouver's lack of nuts
