    Wasn't Elton John supposed to be writing one for us too a while back?

    I'm glad he didn't. He hasn't been listenable since he stopped doing coke in the early 80s.

    Wow, that's a really great song.

    Just kidding. It sounds like horrific. That's a song?

    I'm not picturing a Pats' song to the tune of "Candle in the Wind" as a real motivator/adrenaline boost.:)

    As for the Prince song, I won't be penciling it in as the next "The Autumn Wind" in NFL movies and videos.

    Re: Prince pens a Vikings fight song

    If it's a fight song, what are you fighting? Staying awake?

    Reminds me of the old Bill Cosby bit where he talks about being on the football team at Temple University: "Our coach went out and bought the wrong record - he bought Exodus. We went out on the field and... everybody went home."

    For those of you that don't get it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exodus_(soundtrack)

    :D

    Re: Prince pens a Vikings fight song

    This song is bad.

    That being said, Prince is a supremely talented musician from a day when (the 1980s) many pop stars really had a lot of musical talent. People rag on the 80s, but then you see how accomplished the icons of that era were compared to today.

    Prince is a good example.

    Agreed. I thought he did a nice job during the SB 1/2 time.

    Still waiting for a 1/2 time triumvent of Flock of Seagulls, The Human League and Devo. ;)

    Re: Prince pens a Vikings fight song

    That reminds me - a week or two ago I heard on "The Bob & Tom Show" that a bunch of the '85 Bears got back together to do a commercial for this year's Super Bowl. I was going to post about it on the board here but forgot about it until just now.

    Can't be much more embarrassing than the Super Bowl Shuffle. ;)

    The way we played this year we deserve a Barry Manilow song made for us.

    Don't even go there.

    The Red Sox adopted a Neil Diamond song so it's not inconceivable that Eastern Mass. people will think this is a good idea.

    And, I hope you were just messing around because one of his big hits is "Weekend in New England!"

    I saw Gary Fencik at a conference a couple of years ago. Hes doing just fine (although his firm's portfolio may not be).

    Actually Barbara Streisand's, "The Way We Were" seems to fit this year's team.
