“Time To Go”
Go! Go! Black and gold!
Old-time hockey, bar the door
Clear the track it’s all-out war
Light the lamp, throw a hit
Black and gold never quit
The barn is full, our team’s in town
So put ’em up boys, knock ’em out (knock ’em down)
Drop the puck, it’s time to go (time to go)
Bust outta work, it’s quarter-past five
Time to round up the gang
and take the Red to the Orange line
Head for the street and the Causeway crowd
You can feel it in the air, when the team’s in town
Rancourt’s ready, it’s time to take to the ice
So tie down the jersey ’cause it could get ugly tonight
Top corner, five hole, off the post and in
On a quest for the cup, and we’re ready to win
Go! Go! Black and gold!
Drop the puck, it’s time to go
The hardcore fan has to express his devotion to his team somehow. A man cave is one way of going about that in the extreme. But lord, these guys must hurt bad when their team loses. And hysterically rejoice when they win!
This one almost looks like a bar.
This guy is more into the beer than the team.
But the best one is in good old Winnipeg. A Winnipeg Jets man cave!
This one is a zamboni (ice cleaning vehicle).
Bull riding is a rodeo sport that involves a rider getting on a bucking bull and attempting to stay mounted while the animal tries to buck off the rider.
In the American tradition, the rider must stay on top of the bucking bull while holding onto the bull rope with one hand for eight seconds and not touching the bull or them self with their free hand. A bull rope is a fiber rope wrapped around the chest of the bull directly behind the bull’s front legs, which the rider grips while riding. If the rider does this, it is a qualified ride. If the rider is bucked off before eight seconds, it is a no score. In most bull riding circuits, four judges mark scores for the rider and the bull. Two judges score the rider based on their ability up to 25 points each for up to a total of 50 points. The other two judges score the bull on his bucking performance for up to 25 points each for a total of up to 50 points. Thus, the ride is scored up to 100 points. Most professional riders score between the mid-70s and high 80s. American bull riding has been called “the most dangerous eight seconds in sports.”
The horses are just as psycho
“Foreign object” is a professional wrestling term for an object introduced into the match. Foreign objects are often used to give the bearer an unfair advantage. According to the supposed rules of professional wrestling, if a foreign object is used inside the ring on another wrestler in the presence of a referee, the user would be immediately disqualified. However, it is to note that forcing the opponent into parts of a ring (such as the turnbuckles) or the surrounding areas (such as the announce tables) is not illegal. Thus, while picking up the steel steps leading to the ring and using it on an opponent is illegal, ramming an opponent against the steps while the steps are on the floor is not.
Here the steps have been brought into the ring. This is illegal and the perpetrator should be disqualified. However, there is a distinct possibility that the referee has himself been beaten unconscious at this point.
A baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire. Does the Walking Dead come to mind?
A sledgehammer, this psycho means business. Should be instant disqualification, but then again the ref has likely been beaten senseless.
There goes what may have been a perfectly good guitar. El Kabong!
Barbecue sauce? It may be ‘Turbo Hot Texas Dante Red Hot Pepper’ sauce.
The chair is one of the most popular foreign objects. Many a referee has had their melon slapped hard with a chair.
How to counter a chair? Get a chainsaw!!
The electricians and painters have to remember to put their ladders away!
Featured Match: Jeff Jarrett vs. Chyna, Intercontinental Championship. “The Good Housekeeping Match,” No Mercy 1999. On a night where The Hardy Boyz and Edge & Christian set new standards for ladder matches in WWF, Jarrett and Chyna set new lows for gender-equality and hardcore wrestling in their match-up for the Intercontinental Championship. On Jarrett’s last night with WWF, he and Chyna faced each other in a hardcore match where any household object (because according to Jarrett “women belong in the home”) could be used: a toaster, coffee maker, tongs, ironing board, pots and pans, as well as flour, eggs, a fish filet, and a cake and pie. And, of course, the kitchen sink. It was a literal mess.
