The 2022-23 Buffalo Sabers picked their songs to score goals, and some of them are hilarious.
Previously, when the Sabers scored a goal, they would play the same song. “Let me Clear My Throat”, “Song 2” and “Pump Up the Jam” are a few that have played over the years after the iconic sounds of the goal horn. Last season, however, that changed. They adopted a baseball tradition. In baseball, every batter has a song that he walks to home plate to. Now in hockey, the Sabers have a song that plays every time they score a goal. They started this tradition last season.
Nothing was more iconic (and hilarious) than Sabers forward Jeff Skinner’s goal song last season. He scored 33 goals last year, many of them at home and Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA” would play. It was a fun twist on another season where the team missed the playoffs.
This year, however, could be different. The Sabers are full of hope and really showed up at the end of last season. There is optimism that maybe this year, or at least very soon, the longest playoff drought in sports will end.
Enough about the depressing stuff, though. This year’s team picked their goal songs, and they’re AMAZING. Sadly, Jeff SKionner has retired from “Party in the USA”. However, the replacement is pure gold.
Here are the Buffalo Sabers’ 3 funniest goal songs for the 2022-23 season
1. Jeff Skinner – Whitney Houston, “I want to dance with someone”
Skinner sticks with the ultra-pop songs and picks the ultimate 80s girly anthem. SKINNER’S AMAZING choice and a perfect sequel to Miley Cyrus.
2. Victor Olofsson – ABBA, “Give me! Give me! Give me!”
A Swedish supergroup classic that’s been huge on Tik Tok that’s as HILARIOUS and quirky as what most athletes would choose. In addition, Victor is Swedish, so that’s good.
3. Ilya Lyubushkin – Gummibär, “I Am a Gummy Bear (The Gummy Bear Song)”
Why? No idea. One of the original viral songs on the internet. Is Ilya a gummy bear at heart? Is it an inside joke? It’s okay, it’s hilarious.
As for the rest of the team? There are some serious firecrackers, as well as some head-scratching choices.
