I found this video last night in the ole e-mail. Donut King presents Muse, Knights of Cydonia. He can explain: Awesome video.  Yes, it's a bit long.  Yes, Muse is an acquired taste.  But seriously, if I ever had a hockey team of my own, I'd take the first two or so minutes of this song and use it as an intro.  It gets me all sorts of jacked up for reasons unknown."
