Throwback Thursday: Mario Lemieux, the song.

Today’s TT is straight out of the so-bad-it’s-good file.

What it is, exactly, is somewhat elusive. We believe it’s the music video to a song called “Mario Lemieux” by a band called “Better Tennis.” Problem is, you won’t find any tangible proof that the song or the band exists outside of this page, so take it all with a grain of salt.

You’ll hear it every year among delusional fans – never Red Wings fans, because we think logically and never have to worry about finishing dead friggin’ last – but you’ll hear it everywhere in the circle of sports. Los Angeles Clippers fans. Indianapolis Colts fans. Cleveland Cavaliers fans. The list goes on.

Let’s tank the season and get the No. 1 draft pick.

It’s a crazy theory, really. I mean … who wants to lose? And who would go through with such a ridiculous idea? Gutless people, heartless people, cheaters. That’s who.
