Go Pens: BOOM-LAY BOOM-LAY BOOM!

As with every team in the NHL, right before the home team Penguins come out at the beginning of the game at CONSOL Energy Center, they play the obligatory video to get the crowd riled up.  “Yeah Home Team!  Boo Road Team!”  Crowd goes wild.

The Pens use a song by Shinedown called Diamond Eyes, which is incredibly catchy and includes lyrics like:

Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM! [x4]

I'm on the front line
Don't worry I'll be fine
the story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness
so long to the regret

Yeah, home team!

So, obviously, after seeing the team live, I bought the song.

Now, I’ve mentioned before that, though there are exceptions, in general when it comes to rock/pop songs, I’m not really looking to the lyrics for anything inspirational or meaningful.  If I’m looking for meaningful words, I’ll read the Bible or Shakespeare.

But, I think it’s a special kind of idiotic to have lyrics like this in a song:

[INTRO-Speaking]
I am the shadow, and the smoke in your eyes,
I am the ghost, that hides in the night

…..

[BRIDGE]
Every night of my life
I watch angels fall from the sky
Every time that the sun still sets
I pray they don't take mine

Um, right.  Let me get a pencil and write that down.

But, hey, what the hell, it’s my team’s song, and it’s really catchy, so:

Go Pens, BOOM-LAY BOOM-LAY BOOM!

Enjoy.
