“22” – A Tribute to MacKinnon, Fucale, Drouin, Frk & the 2013 Memorial Cup Champion Halifax Mooseheads

As the Halifax Mooseheads get ready to say “thank you and goodbye” to Zach Fucale (the last remaining cornerstone of their 2013 Memorial Cup championship team), I’m reminded of the lyrics a then 8 year old Enya wrote (with just a little help) to the Taylor Swift song “22” during their 2013 playoff run.   You know who “22” on the Mooseheads was right? (Answer: Nathan Mackinnon).  I”ve posted the Taylor Swift video below so you remember how the song goes.

22 – Mooseheads (Taylor Swift)

It feels like a perfect night
To dress up like Mooseheads
And cheer with our best friends

Ah ha
Ah ha

It feels like a perfect night
For another victory
We’ll celebrate with strangers

Ah ha
Ah ha

Yeah. Drouin, and Frk, MacKinnon on the same line. Their passing is so magical

Oh yeah. Tonight’s the night they’re going to score all the time

It’s time.

Oh oh

I don’t know about you
But I’m cheering for 22
Everything will be alright
If the team plays well tonight

They got the best goalie
His name is Fucale
Everything will be all right
If we just keep cheering for them
22
22

It seems like one of those nights
This place is a sell-out
So many great fans

Ah ha
Ah ha

It seems like one of those nights
Take in the whole scene
It’s like I’m dreamin’
My friends are screamin’

Yeah. Drouin, and Frk, MacKinnon make the best plays. Their passing is so magical

Oh yeah. Tonight’s the night when we make it happen on the power play

It’s time.

Oh oh

I don’t know about you
But I’m cheering for 22
Everything will be alright
If the team plays well tonight

They got the best goalie
His name is Fucale
Everything will be all right
If we just keep cheering for them
22
22

I don’t know about you

22
22

It feels like one of those nights
Take in the whole scene

It feels like one of those nights
Feels like I’m dreamin’

It feels like one of those nights
Mackinnon is on cruise

I think he’ll score two
I think he’ll score two

Ooooooh
Oooohh yea

I don’t know about you
But I’m cheering for 22
Everything will be alright
If he plays good tonight

They got the best goalie
His name is Fucale
Everything will be all right
If we just keep cheering for them
22
22

22
Yeah Yeah

It feels like one of those nights
Take in the whole scene

It feels like one of those nights
Feels like I’m dreamin’

It feels like one of those nights
Mackinnon is on cruise

I think he’ll score two
I think he’ll score two
