Ok, the NHL/NHLPA first round of negotiations could not have gotten much worse. Granted, it’s only the first round. However, looking at Facebook, Twitter and all the freakin’ internet, the possibility of a lock out has gone from the realm of dark nightmare to real possibility. So, I offer up this. Something light, not to be taken too seriously. Worst case scenario, you scream for my head and it comes down off the boards.
<Parody Song- Somebody that I used to know-Gotye>
(sung by Tim Thomas)
Thinking back to the time when I was your goalie.
You’d cheer insanely every time you’d hear my name.
First the series MVP, and all the awards that got dumped on me.
All of Boston said that I would get my statue.
OK, I admit that I gone and went a little flaky.
Told Obama I had better things to do.
Then Tuukka got his injury, and now this is all on me.
And we got taken out by the Caps and Holtby.
So I’ll be taking a year off!
Now everyone in Boston screaming at Cam to trade me!
The team thinks that I’m really low.
It’s like I’m back in Finland and that’s really cold.
Oh why can’t they see, just taking time to spend with friends and family,
I used to be your hero
But now I’m just a goalie that you used to know.
(sung by Chiarelli)
So excited when you brought the Cup to Boston
I was hoping that you could do it all again.
But you just weren’t up to the task.
Now I’m betting on Tuukka Rask.
He’ll be wearing Black-n-Gold.
and you’ll be in Colorado being a goalie that I used to know!
Why is everybody hating me?
I brought the Cup to Boston, doesn’t that mean something?
The fans have gotten really cold,
They boo like I’m Luongo, and I feel so low.
What can’t everybody see?
Just taking time to spend with faith and family.
I used to be your hero.
But now I’m just a goalie that you used to know!
(I used to know)
(Now you’re just a goalie that we’d used to know)
