    The Ballad of the Prezidential Three

    Just listen to a story 'bout a man named Prez
    A poor country boy from the town of Horseheads
    And then one day where lookin' where to go
    In comes a letter from the town of Oswego

    Lakers that is. National Championships - zero.

    The next thing you know ole Prez is lookin' fine
    Cheerin' for the Lakers and writing on Brule's dime
    And then in Superior when the Lakers win in OT
    Prez is stuck in the Johnson dormitory.

    Bad weather you see. Flights cancelled.

    Well now its time to say goodbye to the Oswego Lake
    And head on east where a job is his to take
    A guy named Charlie saw fit for him to hire
    The man named Prez who will cheer for Elmira

    Soaring Eagles they are - National Championships zero

    So now you've heard the song of the Prezidential Three
    With a spot of luck tonight, will make history
    In two weeks will he be sitting in the Ridder?
    Or at home saying, "Woulda, Shoulda, Coulda?"

    The chat room opens at 6 PM. Good seats are still available.

    One of the best posts ever. Put a blonde wig on Derrick, and he could pass for Ellie May.

    I want Oswego, I need Norwich but there ain't no way I'm ever gonna take either over Elmira, so I can't be sad, 'cause two out of three ain't bad.

    Thumbs up Re: The Ballad of the Prezidential Three

    Well done Joe !

    This is a worthy tribute to Prez. It takes a very special fan to pull off what he has, in supporting his three beloved teams with the passion he does.

    Following our visit to Oswego last year he has favoured the Adrian hockey program with "conditional" support, which I value a great deal. I fear that support may be in jeopardy however.

    With Adrian's recent victory over Elmira and considering how schedule sets up in Minnie, the Adrian Bulldogs may complete the Prez/trifecta by also eliminating Oswego and Norwich.


    Not sure what Prez would say, but my guess is that Jed would probably pause from his whittling and give us a big "whheeeee dogggggie"

    Nope. Of this, I am fairly certain. Besides, if video did exist, I would know exactly who to get even with.
    Now, my Biz Markie "performances"... that's a different story (but not on this trip... too sober).

    Re: The Ballad of the Prezidential Three

    Paradise by the Goal Judge Light...

    I remember every little thing
    As if it happened only yesterday
    Parking by the Lake and not another Card in sight
    And I never saw a team, looking any better than you did
    And all the kids at Platty
    Were wishing they were me that night

    And the bodies were oh so close and tight
    Rocking in the Romney on a Saturday night
    And we're glowing like the goal light
    That was down to our right
    Glowing like the goal light
    That was down to our right
    C'mon, hold on tonight
    C'mon, hold on tonight

    Though it's cold and rowdy in the Romney tonight!
    I can see Paradise by the Goal Judge Light
    Though it's cold and rowdy in the Romney tonight!
    I can see Paradise by the Goal Judge Light

    Ain't no doubt about it
    We were doubly blessed
    We're going to beat the Cards
    And win the SUNYAC tonight!

    Ain't no doubt about
    Baby we're going to shout it
    Ain't no doubt about it
    We were doubly blessed
    We're gonna beat the Cards
    And win the SUNYAC tonight!

    Baby don't you hear my heart
    It's drowning out WNYO
    I've been waiting so long for it to come
    So we can have some fun

    And I will let everyone know
    On USCHO
    To open up their eyes
    It will be a big surprise
    When the Lakers have won!

    And the bodies were oh so close and tight
    Rocking in the Romney on a Saturday night
    And we're glowing like the goal light
    That was down to our right
    Glowing like the goal light
    That was down to our right
    C'mon, hold on tonight
    C'mon, hold on tonight

    Though it's cold and rowdy in the Romney tonight!
    I can see Paradise by the Goal Judge Light
    Though it's cold and rowdy in the Romney tonight!
    I can see Paradise by the Goal Judge Light

    Ain't no doubt about it
    We were doubly blessed
    We're going to beat the Cards
    And win the SUNYAC tonight!

    We got to do what we can
    And let Ryan Scott do the rest
    Ain't no doubt about it
    We were doubly blessed
    We're going to beat the Cards
    And win the SUNYAC....


    We're going all the way tonight
    We're going all the way
    And tonight's the night!

    We're going all the way tonight
    We're going all the way
    And tonight's the night!

    STOP RIGHT THERE!!
    I gotta know right now!
    Before you go any further do you know me?
    Do you know who I am?
    I am Bob Emery!
    I win the big games
    And I never lose
    So whatever hope you have, you're gonna get screwed
    I am Bob Emery
    I win the big games
    And I never lose
    So whatever hope you have, you're gonna get screwed
    I AM BOB EMERY
    AND I NEVER LOSE!!!!

    I don't believe that
    Emery, Emery, I don't believe that
    I don't believe that!
    And we'll be the Champions in the morning!

    I don't believe that
    Emery, Emery, I don't believe that
    I don't believe that!
    And we'll be the Champions in the morning!

    YOU'RE GOING TO LOSE RIGHT NOW!
    I am Bob Emery
    I win the big games
    And I never lose
    So whatever hope you have, you're gonna get screwed

    I don't believe it!
    YOU'RE GOING TO LOSE RIGHT NOW!

    I don't believe it!
    YOU'RE GOING TO LOSE RIGHT NOW!

    I couldn't take it any long
    Lord! I was crazed!
    The Cardinals kept coming like a tidal wave
    I was swearing to my God and on my mother's grave
    That Scott would stop the puck this time!
    That Scott would stop the puck this time!

    So now I praying for the end of time
    To hurry up and arrive
    If I have see another Cardinal goal
    I don't think I can really survive

    I will never break my promise, or forget my vows
    But God only knows it is really hard right now
    I'm praying for the game to end
    It's all that I can do!
    I'm praying for the game to end
    And when ends, we lose, boo hoo!!

    It was long ago and it was far away
    And it got a lot better on a future day
    It was long ago and it was far away
    When we would win again on Superior Bay...
