Yahoo's musical ode to OT winner: 'Goal in a butt'

By Mike Harrington

I'm not making this stuff up. I couldn't possibly do it.

Yahoo's Puck Daddy blog has done a 78-rpm turnaround on a three-minute ditty about the Sabres' overtime winner last night and it's called "Goal in a Butt". Seriously.

My favorite lines:

"Not gonna get you a playoff spot. You gotta be a good team for that and you're not."

"Not gonna get you a new GM. Pat LaFontaine's gotta find one of them."

"Not gonna get you a nice third (jersey). You're stuck polishing that golden turd."

"See, I'm wise enough to know when a team needs loving and to be given a chance to see a puck cross the line in a goaltender's pants."
