Your fans are the ones who continue to be first in making the "trolling" comments. Who was the one to start...well you should worry about filling up your seats. Impossible I tell you.

Erack, I suggest you go back to hockeyland. You cannot accuse us of trolling our own board.

Yes. I try not to, and I'm usually pretty open, but in a thread making fun of our song, I think I have every right to make 'wisecracks' (or dumbcracks as is more often the case). You are always welcome here provided we stick to hockey. If I go on your board, I expect to be bashed when I stray off topic.

It doesn't matter who starts it. Why do you bother bickering? If you want discussion then steer clear of these types of threads. There's trolls among any group of fans; no sense in arguing all of them. You seem like an intelligent fella which is why I'm asking this. There's a good amount of quality on this forum, you just need to overlook some remarks and not take little digs at the Tampa franchise so seriously.

I may not know much about Soccer (football), but i Know there is no puck


and sorry for the russians if I mispelled the word
How would your Romanian friend speak russian, and also there is no hockey in Romania?

I can't believe i'm reading a thread like this.

What do you care what we are singing. As a side note, a lot of people love soccer in Montreal and were used to sing this song in their country. Soccer, Hockey?
are those songs digitaly mark, and can only be used for ONE sport?

Please when you start a thread think about it first and let us cheer for our team anyway we like.

Getting back on topic, I think the chant started when Mike Ribeiro came into the league. He's got portuguese blood in him (although he looks skinny enough to not have ANY blood in him), and so the fans would sing the soccer anthem.

I'm wondering why they stopped chanting 'Les Canadiens Sont La'.

On a side note, I was in England about 5 years ago and went to several premiership (soccer) games. I was also in Australia last years and participated in a few Aussie Rules Football games. Over there every team has their own 'anthem', an entire song that they occassionally play over the loudspeakers and everyone chants along. Maybe we can do that before each period or something. If the Canadiens organization would release a new chant (even the Montreal IMPACT soccer team has/had a chant) then the fans would sing away.

Montreal is a unique city. And a unique team. Let's make a unique anthem.

I hereby give Kerberos the role of writing the poetic words to the anthem, and Furax the role of mixing the song and sending it to the proper people.

All in favour say 'Dutchy put your pants on.'










Lafleur thinks that if our poetic master can't come up with words, then we use words that make no sense. He suggests:

Ooh walla walla, boing hop skitter wang wang.
Measles weasles hip hop ole chortle chortle snork.
Bing bang wing wang tinker bell my friends.
So let's go, win the game, our dear Canadiens.


There's also a french version of this song, which someone (perhaps Moumni_bachir?) will translate for us.

Thanks But keep in mind, I didn't bash anyone about singing this song. Back to the subject now *thumbsup*

I think that the song les Canadiens sont là is too homo for the game of hockey (sorry for the homos).

And here's come the traduction

Ooh, voilà voilà, huer muffin skateur chinois chinois.
Mise les, ouiz les, Malik Shaheed Ole glousse glousse.
Bing Bang, chinois chinois, Cloche penseuse mes amis.
Sceau les laids vont, gagner le* partie, nos chevreuil Canadiens!

*: rire des anglais dans leur façon de confondre le genre est si facile!

Agreed. Hate the team from a hockey point of view but dont bash the residents. Some here do. Truthfully I dont know too many natives in Tampa. Everyone is a transplant from the Northeast/ Midwest and Canada. We have TONS of Canadians here in the winter. Plus Florida is not like the rest of the Southeastern US.

BUILDING THE LIGHTNING: When I say the team was built right... I'm talking when we finally got an owner who knows how to run a team. Not those dumb japanese investors that owned the team for the first 7-8 years. We have no choice in who owns the team. In the beginning there was no nope. This team has been real since Palace Sports(Davidson) purchased the team. Davidson knows what hes doing having been the owner of the Pistons for many years. Since 99 this team has been transformed starting at the top.

I think Green Bay, WI has got it right. The city should own the team. Not a private company or investor.

I like the Canadians and "try" to keep the bashing at a hockey level.

nah that's a Mickey Mouse league (I know that I am half Romanian), as for Romanians speaking Russian, very few, Romanian is a romance (latin based) language, compare to the other ex-soviet countries (all slavic).
Good for your friend anyway....all good budy, my mistake

I think the original maker of this thread was trying to troll, but I was actualy curious as to why the "ole ole ole" chant. Someone told me it was some form of "go habs go" in french, because I honestly don't know. But let me repeat, thx for the info. This thread has served its purpose, after the first explanation that you all did it in fun, it has obviously faded into a different direction.


p.s.-I'm guessing alot of the indignation by my fellow Lightning posters is in reponse to the "Hulk Hogan and Hockey go together like _____" threads(you can't really blame them for pressing this topic I guess). Now both sides see that cities do different things to pump their crowds; Montreal has ole ole and towels, Tampa Bay has thunderstix and Hulk Hogan+hot chick. Good luck in Game 4

Yeah but comparing Hulk Hogan to a chant...

And for your information Olé Olé Olé as some similarities to Allez Allez Allez and in english that means GO GO GO! Anyway, it is better to hear that than U-S-A! Who's american on that ice? Mike Komisarek and Jim Dowd! Let's go guys continue to cheer our players!
