Top song in need of banishment from an NFL stadium:

"Fly, Eagles, Fly!"

Let's face it, this song showed up around 2001, right as the Eagles soared to respectability. It has none of the tradition of "Hail to the Redskins" or "Bear Down, Chicago Bears," and it also lacks the ability to will its team to a Super Bowl victory like the other two songs did.

On that note, does anyone know why the Rooneys banished "The Polka" from Steeler games around 1980???

The Rooneys are probably in cahoots with the guy that wrote the "Here We Go" song back in the 90s.

That's why they're trying to make us all forget the polka, which let's face it, is far superior to "Here We Go" in every way.
