It "is" the team motto, isn't it?
craig roh does describe hoka hey! Anyone that doesnt want to click the link. Hoka hey is something crazy horse use to describe as a good day to die. Craig says his team uses is as a good day to die for the teammates!
Thanks for the help. I love what it represents.
can we make hoka hey into tees?
...but I also fear reprisal from trademark attorneys if the block M is depicted in any way. Without the block M or other Michigan trademarks, sure.
But certainly could make one using the saying. Think "burn the ships/couches".
"We have this saying, 'Hoka Hey.' It means great day to die, a great day to die for the teammates. It's every guy in this team would take a bullet for me. That's how much I trust these guys. It just binds us closer together going through a game like that."
Saying supposedly traces back to Crazy Horse, gotten from a Fellowship of Christian Athletes guy.
"That was Shep, he's our guy from FCA, he's a great guy. We had a little sermon before the game on Friday and he was saying 'Hoka Hey' it's a great day to die. It's an Indian war chant. It's a great day to die. They literally aren't going to die. It's sacrifice for your teammate."
The quote is really all that's of interest, so no need to click, but fair use practice requires-
It doesn't mean that!!! Listen to the Indian (me)! Crazy horse exclaimed it before saying it is a good day to die. It means something like "lets go" or "let's do it." It does not mean today is a good day to die! That is a Hollywood misconception.
Wht don't these people ask an Indian what it means instead of BS? It's still a good motto, but use it correctly...
Feather or dot?
Feather. Sorry, I guess I should have made the distinction. I just find the term "native american" to be arbitrary...
I respect that. Because really, they weren't "native"...they just immigrated over here before anyone else. Thought it was just more politically correct nonsense. Which is why, though I'm not big on the new age terms, I always preferred the Canadian way, "First Nation" people. Because that does accurately represent what they were...the people with societies here before they were pushed out.
Reminds me of a sweet t-shirt I saw some guy wearing the other day:
"We are all fucking immigrants!"
I absolutely love me some Death ROH
