Song Suggestion

Recommended Posts

I likes it.Very Patriotic... and a good time of the game to either give the boys a boost if they're behind or help them bring it home if they're winning...

Laymans stupid Question here. Why the 67th minute? I suppose I could look it it but I'm a bit lazy today, sorry.

If I were to take a wild guess it's based on 1867, the year of Confederation.

Yeah that sounds about right. Wierdly that makes Canada 4 years younger than the game that is been played at the the time symbolic time that we'd sing the song.

History .... Don't it just kinda freak you out at times?

Ok. I'll see if people are up for it on Friday, in Edmonton.

Is there a national team game in Edmonton I am unaware of? ;)

Seriously, nice thought but this is a suggestion for national team games.

If it is practised at a local level in games against US-based opponents (Carolina Railhawks, e.g.), then it will be habitual at a national level. Besides, spontaneous anthem singing is already a local practise. ;)

I think this is something that should be reserved for the National side...

That being said, Mapleblood has already proved his worth in chants (I've still got that Saiko tune in my head!).

And not to derail a great idea, but after spending some time the past couple of weeks with both Southsiders and Red Patch Boys/U-Sector types, I'm thinking we should try to start to develop some Eddies "history" through some chants. Watching the Southsiders suddenly join into a tune in the 86th minute (referring no doubt to the Vancouver 86ers) or TFC fans start the Danny Dichio chant in the 23rd (?) minute... made me realize we could start something similar.
