Charlie Daniels Aids Pittsburgh Penguins Against New Jersey Devils

WoooooSenior Writer IOctober 7, 2008

The Pittsburgh Penguins have employed a new mascot in preparation for their home opener against the New Jersey Devils on Saturday night at Mellon Arena. 

Charle Daniels' new theme song dedicated to the Pittsburgh-New Jersey matchup will be played outside of Mellon Arena beginning 24 hours prior to the scheduled puck drop at 7:38 PM on Saturday.

(To the tune of "The Devil Went Down to Georgia by Charlie Daniels Band)

Well the Devils came over to Pittsburgh
They were lookin' for some points to steal
They were in a bind, already two points behind
But they were willin' to make a deal

They came upon a French-Canadian Flower
Playin' goalie, and playin' it hot
Then Gino jumped up on a hickory stump
Said, Matry lemme tell you what

"I'm sure you already knew it
'Cause I'm used to schoolin' you
But if you care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you
Now you play pretty good hockey, boy
But give the Penguins their due
I'll bet a Rob Scuderi goal
Against your soul
Just to think we're better than you"

Then a boy said, "my name's Parise
And it might be a sin
But I'll take your bet
Though I'm gonna regret
'Cause tonight, the Pens will win"

So Mikey rousin' up your bench
And change those four lines hard
'Cause hell's broke loose in Pittsburgh
And Sidney holds the cards
And if you win, you're closer to that banner in black and gold
But if you lose, the Devils have control

The Devils opened up the gate, and said, "We'll start this show"
Then Elias flew in on a breakaway—but yeah, he still blows
He pulled the puck across the ice and it made an evil hiss
Then all 12 Devil fans joined in and it sounded somethin' like this

(Silence overtakes the microphone)

When the Devils finished, Godard said "well you're pretty good 'ol sons"
"But if you drop the gloves with me, you'd be better off to run"

Satan's not a Devil so run boys, run
Look, it's Marty's illegitimate son
Will Gionta ever score 30 goals again?
Gonna have to say no

The Devils bowed their heads because they knew that they'd been beat
Then they layed those two points on the ground at Hal Gill's feet
Fleury said "Devils just come on back if you ever wanna try again
I told you once, you sons of bitches, defense doesn't always win"

Satan's not a Devil so run boys, run
Look, it's Marty's illegitimate son
Holik wins face-offs, but goals are a no
Like they say in Canada, "GO PENS GO"
