    Favorite sporting crowd chants/routines

    One of the best experiences of going to a sporting event is the energy of the crowd and participating in a chant or a routine that's part of your team's tradition. I wanted to share some of my favorite such chants/routines. All of mine are American centric as that's what I'm most familiar with. Would love it if you would share some of your favorites as well.

    I believe that we will win - Utah State

    Winning Team, Losing Team - Utah State

    Jump Around (forward to the 40 second mark] - Wisconsin

    We are Penn State - Penn State

    Moses parting the Red Sea - CCHS

    British football is a hive of funny, malicious and maliciously funny chants.

    I'll exclude Arsenal chants lest I be accused of parochialism, but two of my favs of recent years are Man U's (well, former now the player's gone, I guess)

    "He shoots, he scores, he eats your labradors

    Park Ji Sung, Park Ji Sung"


    about their South Korean star and his countrymen's supposed culinary preferences &, one that belonged to anyone who were playing Hearts when Graham Rix (who's done time for satutory rape of a 15 year old) was in charge, to the tune of The Manics' song,

    "If you tolerate Rix then your children will be next"
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Was at the Leeds varsity match the other day (Leeds uni v Leeds met) and the heavily partisan crowd came out with a few good ones. Especially like the chant of "If you can't go to uni, go to met".

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Also rugby games it was in vogue to say heave in a low voice during an important scrum. Circa 1985.

    I know when Jamie Lyon takes a successful shot at goal against Parramatta (sadly quite often) the crowd usually shouts something about Judas converting.

    Na Na Na Hey Hey Goodbye.

    Also White Towels for playoff games

    Octupus on the ice for Detroit victories.

    Yellow Fever doing anything at a Phoenix game. "She fell over" when a player crashes to the ground.
    "Who are ya" to the opposition star player when he takes a corner in front of the fever. This usually works best when it is said to a player who used to play for the Phoenix.

    I am not listing anything by the barmy army as I am over them.

    You have to do a bit of picturing for this one but this is the recollection of a back and forth between two fans at an Irish League game. Linfield, a city based team, were visiting Portadown, a team in a smaller town with a reputation for being country yokels.


    Linfield fan 'You'se boys are nothing but a bunch of farmers'

    Portadown fan 'what are you shouting about, without us farmers you'd have no spuds to eat'

    Linfield fan 'that's no problem, we'd just eat chips instead'



    The fella telling me about this couldn't figure out if the Linfield fan was being serious or not.
