    Hmmmm .... I'm wondering if this means I should start singing in the shower more often in order to practice.

    WOW! Chris Bond is the Director/Composer/Creator of Evil Dead: The Musical.

    Even though I hate x-mas tunes, I'm creatively cheesy enough to write something I know Chris will like!

    Both Chris' song and Steve's tunes are hilarious. I'd be surprised if anyone could come anywhere close to theirs.

    Raptors Ball

    Slashing through the lane
    In their Nike Shox
    Through defenders they go
    They’re shook out of their socks
    Soles on sneakers squeak
    Making ankles snap
    What fun it is to scream “Shit’s weak!”
    And give their man a slap

    Oh, Raptors ball, Raptors ball
    Raptors all the way
    Oh, what fun it is to watch
    Jose get beat every play
    Raptors ball, Raptors ball
    Raptors all the way
    Oh, what fun it is to watch
    Banks do nothing and get paid

    Last Saturday night
    I thought I’d watch a game
    The Raps could play no D
    It seemed nothing had changed
    Their O was tight and hot
    Though it just was not enough
    Andrea’s attempt at help defense
    Resulted in a stuff

    Oh, Raptors ball, Raptors ball
    Raptors all the way
    Oh what fun it is to watch
    Antoine Wright attempt to play
    Raptors ball, Raptors ball
    Raptors all the way
    Oh what fun it is to witness
    CB4’s dismay

    Raptors ball, Raptors ball
    Raptors every night
    To find his way to the basket
    ‘Drea may need a flashlight
    Raptors ball, Raptors ball
    Raptors now and then
    Suicide rates will double
    If Bosh leaves in twenty-ten

    Hey!

    By far the most fluid stanza - and the funniest. PLus it puts Bargs in a positive light - not too shabby.

    I guess what kind of light Bargnani is in in that stanza depends on your definition of "stuff" :P.
