Sorry I haven't been on here in half a year, but I figured that I couldn't let the greatest sports moment in Washington, DC history pass without a mention. Loving all of your guys' jingles. This one is to the tune of "Rock the Casbah..."

Rock the Red

The Capitals fans are chesty
They wanna Rock the Red
But Tony thinks that they could use
A snow shovel to the head

‘Cause last year they were singing
Trotz, Trotz, Trotz
But then the playoffs came and they
Lost, Lost, Lost
And as Tony drove away in his Coleman Cadillac
He said: “I believe that I had that.”

Tony don’t like you…
Rockin’ the Red, now, rockin’ the Red, now
Tony don’t like you… (you think you invented hockey)
Rockin’ the Red, now, rockin’ the Red, now

Now Ovie’s 500th goal
Went down in history
As the greatest single sports moment
In Washington, DC

And Ovie, Oatsie, Holtsie
Backsie, Brooksie, too
Still aren’t gonna make it
Past round number two
And normally Neil Greenberg would confirm this prognosis
Except that he’s dead to us…

Tony don’t like you… (And we’re presented with Barry Trotz)
Rockin’ the Red, now, rockin’ the Red, now
Tony don’t like you… (“The greatest coach in the history of hockey”)
Rockin’ the Red, now, rockin’ the Red, now

you know, normally i would have to berate you, Dylan, for not giving us jingles for 6 months, but with Better and 200 Dollars i think we're square...forever. but please feel free to write more. this one is so well done and tight with the original.

Very nice! I like that Greenberg line a lot. The greatest moment in the history of DC certainly deserves to be memorialized with as many jingles as possible this week.
