Game #28: Trust Funds (A)

February 27, 2009

We play the Blue Devils. The hated, hated Blue Devils. It’s not often that the entire country is rooting for you. But this is one of those times.

There’s not too much analysis here. We hate them. Everyone hates them. But they play good basketball.

We will need the game of the year to win. But it’s happened before. Most famously, the 2004-2005 season. We could describe to you what it was like, but we’d rather do it through a song done by a few guys that defeated a devil or two in their time… (lyrics provided after video)

February 2005, me and my brother Greenburg here,…
we was hitchhikin’ down a long and lonesome road.
All of a sudden,
there shined a shiney blue devil…
in the middle…
of Cassell.

And he said:
“Play the best game in the world,
or I’ll eat your souls (Souls).”

Well me and coach,… we looked at each other,
and we each said…

And we played the first thing that came to our heads,
Just so happened to be,
The best game in the world,
it was the best game in the world.

Look into my eyes and it’s easy to see
One and one make two,
Zabian made threes,
It was destiny.

Once every other year or so,
When the sun doth shine and the moon doth glow
and the grass doth grow oooh

Needless to say,
Coach K was stunned.
“Wah wah” went his whiney tail,
And JJ was done.
He asked us:
“(snort) BE you angels?”
And we said,
We are but HOKIES.
Ahhh, ahhh, ahhh-ah-ah-ah-ah-ahn,
Ohhh, whoah, ah-whoah-oh!

And now we’ll play
The Greatest Game in the World, Oh
And you will pay a tribute.
You will remember The Greatest Game in the World, Oh.
You will pay a tribute, oh,
To The Greatest Game in the World,
All right!
It was The Greatest Game in the World,
All right!
And it was the best mother f***in’ game,
The Greatest Game in the World!

‘Ti Tuga digga tu Gi Friba fligugibu Uh Fligugigbu Uh Di Ei Friba Du Gi Fligu fligugigugi Flilibili Ah
Fligu wene mamamana Sacrebleu!

And the peculiar thing is this my friends:
the game we played on that fateful night it wasn’t as good as the game we’ll play right now!!

This is not a tribute!
You gotta believe me!
And I wish you were there!
Just a matter of opinion.
Good God, God lovin’ ,
So surprised to find you can’t stop me, now.
I’m on fire–
O hallelujah I’m found! Rich something something compadre aaaaah!
All right!
All right.


They represent our heroes and our plan to win the game.
