What's the story behind the Ole song? When did it start and where?
It's used in Latin soccer stadiums as a way to taunt opponents. "Ole" is used when a bullfighter is successful in taming a bull. When the bull charges at him and he moves out of the way everyone chants "OLE". So it's used in a way to taunt the opposing team. I know that in soccer when one team holds possession of the ball and continually passes the ball amongst themselves the crowd will chant "Ole" after each pass. So, maybe the "Ole" song is just a sort of taunting, we're dominating you, sort of chant...
Correct, however "Ole" in football, or um Soccer...is also used whenever skilled moves are done to outwit an opponent. Any "cool" feint can result in an "Ole" outburst from the fans but they will just say it once. For example...If you get it through the 5 hole of another soccer player it is called a nutmeg to some and that may prompt fans to shout ole in recognition of the skill displayed and the shame you brought to the other player
I noticed and tought that chanting Ole Ole for a politic speach isn't nice at all compared to an hockey game...
Please people let the Ole Ole chants be for sports in Quebec.
What we are seeing is the globalization of the "Ole" chant, it is spreading for many different reasons and uses... I hear where you are coming from though...
