I just want to say to all of the supports of the North Dakota (arrogant effete) Sioux, just defeated by the (noble scholar athlete) Gophers, a big “thanks” and “neener neener”.
The Golden Gophers are in the Final!
Justin Holl unleashed euphoric reactions across the entire state of Minnesota by scoring an unlikely shorthanded goal with less than a second remaining [!!!] in Thursday night’s Frozen Four semifinal against long-time rival North Dakota to give Minnesota a 2-1 victory and a berth in the National Championship game, the 12th in program history.
And now we shall have a SING ALONG!
Here is the Minnesota March, written by John Philip Sousa. I’ll bet your school doesn’t have a march written by Sousa (there are a few).
The words for the interactive part…. EVERYBODY!
RAH! RAH! SKI-U-MAH! RAH! RAH! RAH! [SKI is pronounced like “sky”. It just is. Don’t question me.]
March on, march on to victory!
Loyal sons of the varsity.
Fight on, fight on for Minnesota
For the glory of the old maroon and gold.
March on, march on to win the game,
DOWN THE FIELD! [Or “down the ice”] Fighting every play.
We’re with you, team, fighting team,
Hear our song, we cheer along
To help you win a victory!
