I watch the Capitals' capitulation
play out a TV station


Despite their hall of fame coach Trotzy
they blew another series lead
What about that new philosophy?
the result sure looks the same to me!!!!

Choking dogs
oh, Washington
Choking dogs
Why do we still watch it...
…when we know they’ll botch it?
what makes you think next year will be different?

A parody of Simon and Garfunkel, "Homeward Bound"

Not sure what else to say. This is a tutorial, like many Negrelli songs....

So well done, Jerry! Yes, Cleveland and the Cubs have a history of terribleness, let's not forget about MN teams.

I lived in Akron for a couple years as a kid - I think the Cleveland pro scene is what pushed me into being a fan of Pittsburgh teams.

Hey, the Indians made the 94 Series, said the Cubs fan. (though, as a one-time, long-time Cleveland resident, I feel that pain, too). Sweet, actually.

In the same way many comedians come from dysfunctional homes, my Cleveland sports fandom has conditioned me well to write sad parodies about sports misery.

Man, so wonderfully done. And such a great take on this angle of the choking. You sum up what's worse than actively hating a team: inescapable apathy. I laughed when Wilbon was giving Tony a hard time yesterday for seeing the Caps this way, when his entire "I'm not surprised" take is the exact same thing, :)

I'd hate to be a Caps fan on this site - so much doom and gloom lately ;-). Very nicely done

Recipe for perfect jingle: Classic tune - check Terrific vocal - check Super production - check Funny - check check Under a minute - check Mix until ready, serve as a master class. PS I liked this one Jerry
