New Theme Song.

This year's Ticats have played some of the best football we've seen in Hamilton in recent years, and given they've just come off of two short weeks in a row where they have, um, not played as well. And replacing coaches or players is not going to get us to where we want to be -this- year.

So here's the a new theme song for the team. I suggest it might help everyone here to think this way as well:

(note the lyric about "thinking about jumping ship before it sinks...")

After these past couple of weeks, I’m sure some people would be leaning more towards this one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V0CG4eN8SUQ Me, while I can relate to that song to some extent, I’m liking your choice more.

And following the last two games, this one comes to mind as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V0CG4eN8SUQ We can turn it around again and come out on top. We have the talent on this team to go all the way.

Just to say, some of us haven’t given up hope. Not until the final whistle.

Aren't those two the same - "Its a Heartache"? In any case it is a pretty good description of how we all feel after a big loss. So just remember to:

I agree that a lot of the negativity and panic is excessive, but given the last decade, I can understand why some fans are expressing this sentiment:

Oops. Cut-and-paste error. The second one was supposed to be

That's brilliant!

How about this one?

(The lyrics may be garbled but the title says it all) :thup:

Bobby McFerrin?

As in, "Don't Worry, Be Happy"? Hmmmm. Complacency. Nope, not quite right.

I'm thinking more, "pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again". Even that's not quite right, as I don't think there's a need to start over. We're pretty close on the players we need - maybe a little help at DB and DT - so it's more a matter of refocusing and getting our Tiger Blood pumping again. (Sorry for the Charlie Sheen reference.)

It's inspiration the team (and its fans) needs now. So I'll leave you with these words from Hamilton's own Stan Rogers:
"Rise again, rise again,
Though your heart it be broken or life about to end,
No matter what you've lost, be it a home, a love, a friend,
Like the Mary Ellen Carter,
Rise Again!"
