    At no point did somebody yell, “Are you ready for some football?!”

    Anyone for a blast of Billy Idol’s “Rebel Yell”? Totally irrelevant, of course.

    But when I’m tired and lonely she sees me to bed
    What set you free and brought you to be me babe
    What set you free I need you hear by me

    In the midnight hour she cried- “more, more, more”
    With a rebel yell she cried- “more, more, more”
    In the midnight hour babe- “more, more, more”
    With a rebel yell- “more, more, more
