mcdaveni, mcdavidi, mcdavici (updated)
In the event that Oilers captain Connor McDavid scores five points in a victory at home against [insert opponent team name here], I offer this verse, with apologies to L. Cohen, to capture the scene as high-spirited fans wearing #97 sweaters stream out of the rink, high-fiving each other, on the way to the Edmonton night. And to get this out of my head.
Well, they looked up at the big scoreboard
That McDavid made and it pleased the horde
Because winning is quite therapeutic for ya
He got four points and then a fifth
The [insert opponent team name here] he did away with
Leaving dazzled fans approaching Ford Hallelujah...
This will happen. I want to be ready.
I am still trying to figure out how best to combine in verse McDavid scored with Taylor Hallelujah. That will have to wait for another day.
