Bob Marley and the Harford Whalers....

have left town.

A Tribute To Hockey Teams That Are No More

I remember hockey games
played right here in my state
that’s where all the people came for their local hockey team

those days are still around, unfortunately not in my state
support it can’t be found
it’s in the press, and now we’re all depressed

Bob Marley and the Hartford Whalers
are not around
Bob Marley and the Hartford Whalers
have left town

imagine New York without the rangers
Philly without the flyers
no Detroit red wings

so go to games
support your team
and while you’re there ya buy ice cream
let em’ know you care
if everyone does their part
the team won’t break your heart

Bob Marley and the Hartford Whalers
are not around
Quebec’s nordiques and the golden seals
have left town

the Rockies and the north stars
have both disappeared
so support your team, while we just dream
of our golden years

support your team!
let’s dream about our golden years!

I can relate. I lived in Denver when the Rockies were there and I was also living there when they were yanked away by New Jersey. Those were tough freakin years. I was long gone from Colorado by the time Denver yanked the Nordiques away and even though I'm a big Av's fan, I'm torn a little inside because I can certainly relate to and feel for what those fans in Quebec went through... and probably still are going through.

Needless to say, it sucks big time when your team leaves town.
