It's a big week for a team that's been putting on big-time performances. So, for such a big week, we thought we should highlight not one but TWO new chants for a couple of members of our beloved Legion side.
The first is for former UAB and Birmingham Hammers defender, Mathieu Laurent who has grown in stature as part of a central defensive partnership with Kyle Fisher. He has also used his height to great affect with a headed goal against Atlanta United 2 during our five-game unbeaten run. In his honor, we are cracking out a classic from the Fab Four, singing the following to the tune of "Hey Jude" -
Naaaaaa na na na na na naaaaaa!
Na na na naaaaa! Mathieu!
The second is for Legion's #7, Brian Wright, our loanee striker from the New England Revolution who has formed a dangerous partnership with fellow-MLS loanee and Birmingham native, JJ Williams. For Brian, we wanted a song that told the story of his loan (and return... and return again!) and we came up with the following to the tune of Afroman's "Because I Got High" -
We thought he'd gone back to the Revs, it made us cry!
But he's back in black and gold, what a sight!
Now we're scoring goals for fun, and I know why!
Brian Wright! Brian Wright! Brian Wright!
Da da da da da da!
