TRUE NORTH national anthem

Hey everyone!

If you havent heard yet we the fans of the Jets yell TRUE NORTH! during the anthem when the line "true north strong and free" comes up. Its a huge shout out to our owners and also gives us something unique and makes the anthem entertaining!

TRUE NORTH!!!...strong and free. Spread the word boys!!!

Yer speakin my language.

I'm all about connecting "True North" to the anthem.

That's where it comes from, and should be one of the calling cards of our team.

We ARE the True North.

Good idea!
But this doesnt need to get stickied, fans will catch on and it'll become a tradition or it'll disappear quickly. These things can't be overly forced or they seem insincere. And did you really need to post three times within the first 5 posts??

Awesome. Didn't even think about posting that idea over here when I threw it on another site about a month or two ago. Thanks for keeping this going!

Anyway, I like the idea True North and yes I have heard it yelled at Moose games. I especially love the power play pass counter.. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5... random person yells, "SHOOT!", 6, 7... lol

I like this idea.

Not sure if it'd really catch on but I think it'd be cool if we did the "Knights" shout too.

GAH! Sarcasm emoticon! Well, yes, I have a horse... in my stable... in Fort Rouge. Yeah... and I also have a theme park in my back yard.

Apparently I can't have sleepovers... wait, that's too far! I'll quit while I am ahead.

I don't think it has any real link. It didn't have much of a connection to the Thrashers as the IHL Knights were only really in common because they played in the same city. They have nothing to do with the jets.

hahaha! I forgot that you despise the rampant sarcasm on this forum

You really shouldn't have sleepovers with horses, they will kick you in the middle of the night.

TRUE NORTH!!

The red header near the top of the page has a bunch of links. One of them is vBookie. You can bet on various sporting events and other things there.
