Years ago, there was a terrific Simpsons episode, "Homer at the Bat," in which Mr. Burns hired big-name baseball talent as ringers for the company softball team. Unfortunate things happened to most of these ringers. I couldn't help thinking of it lately when it came to our forwards. I also couldn't resist rewriting "The Softball Song" in my head tonight. So to celebrate tonight's win against the Kings:
The Wilkes-Burgh Penguins Hockey Song
Well, Disco Dan had done it.
The Wilkes-Burgh Penguins won it.
With Fleury making big saves all the while
Matt Cooke's four-game suspension made us smile
While Jeffrey limped back down the dressing room aisle.
We're talkin' hockey
From Pittsburgh to L.A.
Talkin' hockey, Adams and T.K.
Sid the Kid and his head injury
Geno and his right knee surgery
We're talkin' Staaaaaal-sy....Conner and Dupuis
