Back in the day, I used to go to UM hockey games all the time. I knew all the cheers, taunts and what-not. However, now that I am a student here I have, unfortunately, not been able to attend many games. With the Big Chill coming up I want to make sure I have all of my hockey cheers down pat. Anyone with hockey-going experience have a list of the cheers/songs that the student section performs?
Comprehensive List of M Hockey Cheers?
You're not a goalie, you're a sieve
You're not a sieve, you're a funnel
You're not a funnel, you're a vacuum
You're not a vacuum, you're a black hole
You're not a black hole, YOU JUST SUCK. YOU JUST SUCK. YOU JUST SUCK.
You're not a goalie, you're a sain
You're not a saint, you're a savior
You're not a savior, you're a prophet
You're not a prophet, you're a messiah
You're not a messiah, YOU JUST SAVE, YOU JUST SAVE, YOU JUST SAVE, YOU JUST SAVE
do we actually chant that this year?
because thats kinda lame
Hey (goalie name)
it's your mom, she says "you suck."
"Ugly goalie" when the mask comes off
"Ugly parents" on opponent goal
the really long profane one has been redacted and shifted
"Slutty sisters" on second opponent goal, improvised after that
my favorite. when there's a sexy grandma, that is
has died, sadly. Damn internet (& making get off my grass old man fist shaking.)
(Point to our Goalie) Say: GOALIE.
(Point to their Goalie) Say: SIEVE.
Any time "Temptation" is played, the chant is
"GOALIE!" (Point at M's goalie)
"SIEVE!" (Point at opponent's goalie)
Repeat every beat of the song until it is over
EDIT: Well, dammit.
CHECK THE NET (repeat until refs comply)
GET INSIDE (repeat as above)
WE WANT TUNISON/I SEE CANDY (ref known to throw us candy after checking net in 3rd period, unlikely in the Big House but oh well)
(Bring a copy of the Daily/E3W, make a big show of opening/reading/turning back when opposing lineup announced)
(Name annouced) WHO CARES, YOU SUCK (repeat, crumple and throw paper at the end)
(Opposing team on PP, puck in their zone)
WHOOOOOOPWHOOPWHOOOOPWHOP (annoying whooping/yipping until puck out of zone)
(Michigan goal: hold up # of goals on hands, follow others' hand motions)
listen for "GOAL COUNT"
READY? (count goals) WE WANT MOOOOOOOOOOOORE GOALS! SIEVE SIEVE SIEVE SIEVE SIEVE SIEVE SIEVE IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT (followed by cowbell Go Blue)
("Pony", "Moose" songs: follow crowd dances, and then:)
MOOSE (moose antlers), SIEVE (point at sieve), repeat
(Scooter Vaughn has puck, is being awesome)
AHHH SCOOT SCOOT SCOOT SCOOT M-F'er, AHHH SCOOT SCOOT G-dam (tune of Get Low)
(Also when Louie Caporusso scores, we're not booing, we're saying LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOU)
GIVE ME AN O, O (repeat for R,G,Y)
WHAT'S THAT SPELL? ORGY
WHAT'S THAT MEAN? TEAMWORK
(similar for ANAL (coming from behind) and FOREPLAY (we're gonna score!))
There's a lot of improv too depending on how entertaining the other teams' last names are. We aim for funny and clever heckling, no "get off your knees ref" or similarly unoriginal stuff.
Oh and if you don't dance then you're no friend of mine.
i just hurt inside when you said "moose song" instead of, you know, Rocky & Bullwinkle
I was trying to put it as plainly as possible
I'm glad the ORGY series of chants is going in Yost, they never did them while I was there but going to games with my brother I thought they were hysterical.
Starting at 1:05 left:
Announcer: One minute remaining in the # period.
Crowd: "Thank you!"
Hopefully by the 3rd period U-M has a comfortable lead. If the announcer is in a good enough mood you might get a "You're welcome!"
You mean starting at 1:04 right? You want to end at 1:00, not 1:01
OHHHHHHH C YA, CHUMP, DICK, WUSS, DOUCHEBAG, ASSHOLE, PRICK, CHEATER, BITCH, WHORE, SLUT, COCKSUCKER
didn't occur when i went in late October for Nebraska
though the band plays over it obviously
Didn't the CCHA, or some other governing body, chastise Michigan for this? A version of that cheer was in place as early as 1996, when I went to my first hockey game, and I suspect earlier than that.
not to go all opposite of Wolverine318 on this but i got into a discussion with some older alumni and the atmosphere has really shifted in the past 5 years. the cheers, etc, really hit the wall in about 2004-2005. when the post-penalty cheer got offensive, the requirement for the band director to be OMG SRS, the antagonizing of Berenson over request for the kill of said cheer, etc. goddamn it used to be so much fun and now the cheers are just... nm
It is slightly out of date, but there is a list on the michigan superfan website.
That about covers it.
Cowbell/clapping accelerando from about 12-15 seconds until the end of the penalty followed by a hearty cowbell-lead "Let's Go Blue" cheer.
Lloyd Brady at the very beginning (?)
as far as for the student section, Yost is by far the best venue because the students are actually participating instead of not caring or just simply do nothing but watch the game.
No joke: the name of the webpage for the superfan.com site listed earlier is Rosenberg.
Talk about someone who is not a vacuum......
Announcer: Michigan State full strength
Crowd: And they still suck
Guys, if you can! PLEASE come over to the University of Michigan DEARBORN, for hockey, and DO ALL OF THIS! If you stub your foot going up the stairs, and moan, it's considered to be WAY TOO MUCH NOISE! At the basketball games, the team actually has to do cheers for itself, like women do for softball at some schools! I took a cowbell in there, and they thought I was a GOD! But it's like pulling teeth in there, and they need all the help they can get from any of the Michgan fans and YOSTERS! And to think, that place used to be packed in the early 80's, and when they used to play and beat the big MICHIGAN TEAM! U of M Dearborn are the Wolverines, they have the same uniforms, except for the helmet, and they play the VICTORS, but it's like being in COFFIN, in that place, and they need some very LOUD AND CRAZY Wolverine fans, STAT!
