The Lyrics

From this parody and the one I did about how Kobe Bryant would rather be in Colorado, you can tell I think just about as highly of the L.A. Lakers as I do of the Green Bay Packers.
L.A. always gets the good calls
From the referees.
Just a grimace from Phil Jackson
Casts a spell, so it seems.
The Lakers win a lot,
But they have one weak spot....

They just can't win in Indiana!
That's where Reggie shoots his threes.
Malone, try as he might, cannot deliver right,
And Kobe Bryant sucks, you see.
Their New Age coach takes Pepto-Bismol
As he sweats another loss.
Then the Lakers go drink moonshine on the Wabash,
They cannot win at Indiana's home!

Fancy pants, they are so pampered,
The refs give them the game.
Shaq has his own reserved parking spot
In the middle of the lane.
And often times I see
An NBA conspiracy....

But they can't win in Indiana!
That's where Reggie shoots his threes.
Malone, try as he might, cannot deliver right,
And Kobe Bryant sucks, you see.
Their New Age coach takes Pepto-Bismol
As he sweats another loss.
Then the Lakers go drink moonshine on the Wabash,
They cannot win at Indiana's home!
2004 Michael W. McVey

I hope you're right. I used to think I was a Laker fan, but I realised I just loved Chick Hearn. What a bunch of overpaid spoiled brats.

Yeah, I hope so too. Go Pacers! Beat those Pistons, then beat those Fakers.

No sooner do I e-mail the lyrics to Bob and Tom (the same guys who did "I Spent the War in Indiana" ), then the Pacers blow a home game and most likely their chances of winning the series with the Pistons. Well, maybe next year :( -- MM

Thanks, Pistons. Even though I wanted my Pacers to win, I'm glad SOMEONE beat the L.A. Fakers! -- MM
