Hockey Night Jive - 2/19/11

So our Rangers were trapped and skinned last night by the Jersey Devils. It wasn't a pleasant night and reading the rehashes has been depressing. Lundqvist brings his 'A' game to an important matchup and no one else from New York shows up. The Biebs could have given him more offense than the woeful Rangers.

The Warren Zevon and Mitch Albom hockey song "Hit Somebody" will be made into a movie. Maybe our own Canadian farm boy, Derek Boogaard, from Saskatoon will have a cameo. However, he should stipulate that a stuntman will have to fill in for any fight scenes. We don't want the Boogeyman to get hurt anymore. By the way, the Boogeyman has seen the red light twice in his career.


He was born in Big Beaver by the borderline
He started playing hockey by the time he was nine
His dad took the hose and froze the back yard
And little Buddy dreamed he was Rocket Richard
He grew up big and he grew up tough
He saw himself scoring for the Wings or Canucks
But he wasn't that good with a puck

Buddy's real talent was beat'n people up
His heart wasn't in it but the crowd ate it up
Through pee-wee's and juniors, and midgets and mites
He must have racked up more than six hundred fights
A scout from the Flames came down from Saskatoon
Said, "There's always room on our team for a goon
Son, we've always got room for a goon"

There were Swedes to the left
Russians to the right
A Czech at the blue line itching for a fight
Brains over brawn--that might work for you
But what's a Canadian farm boy to do?
Hit somebody!
What else can a farm boy from Canada do?
Hit somebody!
What's a Canadian farm boy to do?
Hit somebody!
What else can a farm boy from Canada do?

Hit somebody! was what the crowd roared
When Buddy the goon came over the boards
"Coach," he'd say, "I wanna score goals"
The coach said, "Buddy, just remember your role
The fast guys get paid, they shoot, and they score
Protect them, Buddy, it's what you're here for

Protection it's what you're here for
Protection--it's the stars who score
Protection--go and kick somebody's ass
Protection--don't put the biscuit in the basket just
Hit somebody! it rang in his ears
Blood on the ice ran down through the years
The king of the goons with a box for a throne
A thousand stitches and broken bones
He never lost a fight on his icy patrol
But deep inside, Buddy only dreamed of a goal
He just wanted one damn goal

There were Swedes to the left
Russians to the right
A Czech at the blue line itching for a fight
Brains over brawn--that might work for you
What's a Canadian farm boy to do?
Hit somebody!
What else can a farm boy from Canada do?
Hit somebody!
What's a Canadian farm boy to do?
Hit somebody!
What else can a farm boy from Canada do?

In his final season, on his final night
Buddy and a Finn goon were pegged for a fight
Thirty seconds left, and the puck took a roll
And suddenly Buddy had a shot on goal

The goalie committed, Buddy picked his spot
Twenty years of waiting went into that shot
The fans jumped up, and the Finn jumped too
And coldcocked Buddy on his follow through
The big man crumbled but he felt all right
'Cause the last thing he saw
was the flashing red light
He saw that heavenly light

There were Swedes to the left
Finns to the right
A Czech at the blue line itching for a fight
Take care of your teeth--that might work for you
But what's a Canadian farm boy to do?
Hit somebody!
What else can a farm boy from Canada do?
Hit somebody!
What's a Canadian farm boy to do?
Hit somebody!
What else can a farm boy from Canada do?
Hit somebody!
What's a Canadian farm boy to do?
Hit somebody!
What else can a farm boy from Canada do?
