Hey Knick fans, what are you doing?

Fire_isiah_or_thomas

Seriously Knick fans, what the hell are you doing?  You’ve been chanting "Fi-re Is-i-ah" for months now.  You’re stuffing 5 syllables into a 4-beat chant.  It doesn’t exactly flow off the tongue like a Dr. J finger roll, it’s more like Beetlejuice dribbling the ball off his head.  You don’t have to be Mozart to realize this is retarded. 

From being at some of these games, it’s pretty clear no one knows what’s going on, after "Fi-re," the whole things get lost and sounds like 18,000 drunk Borats trying to verbally do the wave.

Last year it was "Fi-re Thom-as," a standard 4-beat chant and the sound was deafening.

What happened, did people actually mistake it for ‘Hire Llamas’?

Did you change it up since he never actually got fired?

Did Dolan accidentally fire assistant equipment manager Bernie Thomas instead?  Sadly, that probably did happened.

At this point it really doesn’t matter, just start chanting "Fi-re Thom-as" like you did last year, it’s makes a huge difference when everyone is screaming the same shit at the same time.  And maybe he’ll finally get fired (for our sake, we hope not).

Other possible chants Knick fans should consider:

3-beat chants
Tho-mas-Sucks!
Do-lan-Blows!
Lick-Our-Balls!

4-beat chants
Bring-back-Hu-bie! (this one needs to start immediately)

    The chant seeks to cram 5 syllables into 4. Like Isiah cramming 12 hunks of overpriced, unmotivated, wretched crap into a winning team. It doesn’t fit, either. It’s a theme thingie

    Thanks for the link. Obviously I already had yours on the blog, which I FINALLY launched today. Still working on the prevailing them but basically I want to celebrate the hypocrisy in sports.
