SLS – Sports

Jim wants us to feature sports songs today. So I decided to go with ice hockey. When we were in Chicago we had so many friends massively into hockey. Ben likes all sports. He loves the atmosphere of going to a game with friends.

The Chicago Blackhawks adopted a song by The Fratellis called “Chelsea Dagger” as their official goal song back in 2008! It is kind of catchy!! It is not a song about sports particularly as you may see from the lyrics, but it has become synonymous with the Hawks scoring a goal! Right at the end of this post I have included a clip of crowds chanting the tune to what has become an accidental sports anthem!

The Fratellis’ “Chelsea Dagger” was written by John Lawler.

Well you must be a girl with shoes like that
She said you know me well
I seen you and little Steven and Joanna
‘Round the back of my hotel

Someone said you was asking after me
But I know you best as a blagger
I said tell me your name is it sweet?
She said my boy it’s Dagger

I was good she was hot
Stealin’ everything she got
I was bold she was over the worst of it
Gave me gear thank you dear bring yer sister over here
Let her dance with me just for the hell of it

Well you must be a boy with bones like that
She said you got me wrong
I would’ve sold them to you
If I could’ve just have kept the last of my clothes on

Call me up take me down with you
When you go I could be your regular belle
And I’ll dance for little Steven and Joanna
‘Round the back of my hotel

I was good she was hot
Stealin’ everything she got
I was bold she was over the worst of it
Gave me gear thank you dear bring your sister over here
Let her dance with me just for the hell of it

Chelsea Chelsea I believe that when you’re dancing
Slowly sucking your sleeve
The boys get lonely after you leave
It’s one for the Dagger and another for the one you believe

Chelsea I believe when you’re dancing
Slowly sucking your sleeve
The boys get lonely after you leave
It’s one for the Dagger, another for the one you believe
One you believe

Twenty years ago I also visited many ice hockey games, and yes, I considered choosing one of the songs they played then, but it was too long ago to remember exactly. Ice hockey isn’t really a thing here in The Netherlands, but I really enjoyed going to those matches 🙂
