NHL Lockout Christmas Album: Part 1

I must admit, I feel scorned. This wasn’t supposed to last this long. I mean it’s become nearly comical to hear the pundants answer the NHL lockout’s most popular question

“Do you think there will be a season?”

My sarcastic side says, sure, there is 4 seasons in every calendar year, but only 2 if you live in Canada involving 4months of spring followed by winter. Honestly, at this point, does it matter? I mean, by the time it’s announced that a season will start, are you going to be as pumped as you would be in a regular year where the season starts in October? My answer to that is a resounding no.

But enough of that. What I can guarantee you are 2 things

1) knowing that right now my friends in Australia are still alive & therefore the world has not ended.

2) Christmas will happen Monday

So, to get in the festive spirit & because this is an actual hockey blog, over the next few days I will present to you, the 2012 NHL Lockout Christmas Album (with lyrics). Let’s kick it off with a little World Juniors number, which seems fitting since Team Canada kicked off “The Reason” tour which started this morning with an aggravating 3-2 loss to the Fins in a pre-tournament warm-up game.

I Love The World Juniors At Christmas

I love the World Jrs at Christmas,
It’s the best hockey of the year,
And I don’t care about the NHL cuz I’m too busy drinking beer,
I love the World Jrs at Christmas,
Wave your native flag high for the rest o’ the world to see,
Oh ho, the NHL won’t be played this year,
So if anyone see’s Gary & Donald there,
Kick ‘em once for me!

I love the World Jrs at Christmas,
and in case you didn’t hear,
Oh by golly cheer loudly & proudly for your country, this year!

(instrumental stick slapping to beat)

I love the World Jrs at Christmas, It’s the best hockey of the year,
And when you’re at the pub, give high fives to the friends you know and those who serve the, cold beer.
Oh ho, the NHL won’t be played this year,
So if anyone see’s Gary & Donald there,
Kick ‘em once for me!

I love the World Jrs at Christmas
And make sure that you cheer,
Oh, by golly hope that my team goes and wins it, this year!

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas everyone!!
