Who can forget the Seattle Seahawks coming out to the Verve’s Bittersweet Symphony at Super Bowl XL? You knew they were going to lose as soon as you heard the song. Who comes out to a song like that? They might as well have run out while Peabo Bryson blasted from the speakers. Yah Mo Be There, on the other hand, would have guaranteed victory.
The Seahawks and music fail go way back like BK’s and jheri curls. Check this disaster by the 1985 Seahawks called Locker Room Rock. It’s no Ram It but sweet baby jesus…
It’s nice to see that Mike Tice is as good at dancing as he is at scalping Super Bowl tickets. Off-brand Michael Jackson was down but where was Steve Largent? He was probably out slaying non-believers with Jim Zorn.
Needless to say, the Seahawks didn’t make the Super Bowl in 1985. The Super Bowl Shuffle came out on top while Locker Room Rock didn’t even warrant a shameful bronze.
Piped in music and fake crowd noise used to be the domain of American indoor sports especially the NBA. No longer. As the Guardian noted, “Manchester United’s humiliation last Saturday started long before kick-off”. Check this pathetic display by the in-house DJ to rally the crowd. To call this song shit would be an insult to poop.
United went on to lose 4-1 to Liverpool. A fate well deserved. In case you were wondering, they lost 2-0 to Fulham this past Saturday and finished the game with nine men after Paul Scholes and Wayne Rooney were sent off. Karma is a cold unforgiving bitch. Let this be a lesson to the rest of the league.
** Don’t worry. We’ll get in a Long-EZ joke next time anything John Denver related comes up in a post.
I bet you thought you were done with the Quad City DJ’s. You can thank Napoli fans for bringing them back.
A group of Napoli fans bum rushed a Rome-bound train without tickets on Sunday. They wrecked several cars and passengers were forced to flee for their lives. Naples police ordered the train to leave for “public safety” reasons. They did this after ordering the paying passengers to take other trains. The train arrived in Rome and the planned soccer riot between Roma and Napoli fans took place after a short delay. Nothing stops the trains. Mussolini would be proud.
