|Camp Randall 1914|
The photo on the right is Camp Randall in 1914 - I'm pretty sure "Jump Around" would have been frowned upon. (The "Jump Around" tradition started on Saturday, October 10, 1998).
I believe on the photo they are all singing the 1914 hit song by Arthur Fields "The Aba Daba Honeymoon" the words are below:
’Way down in the Congoland Lived a happy chimpanzee, She loved a monkey with a long tail, (Lordy, how she loved him!) Each night he would find her there, Swinging in the cocoanut tree, And the monkey gay, at the break of day, Lived to hear his Chimpie say:
“Aba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab,” Said the Chimpie to the Monk, “Baba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab,” Said the Monkey to the Chimp. All night long they’d chatter away, All day long they were happy and gay, Singing and swinging in their hunky, tonkey way. “Aba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab,” Means “Monk, I love but you,” “Baba, daba, dab,” is monkeytalk, means “Chimp, I love you too,”
WELL - I can see how that would put the crowd in a frenzy!!
I'm pretty sure it was not thew other hit song "Back Back Back to Indiana".
Funny thing about "Jump Around". On September 6, 2003 UW officials decided to cancel the "Jump Around" and Stadium security and the local police department had been informed of this decision. Yet no one told the students. When the 4th quarter started the students realized that there was no "Jump Around". Then the entire section sat down in protest, raises their middle fingers and started chanting "FUCK THE SOUND GUY FUCK THE SOUND GUY" Chanting and booing continued through the majority of the fourth quarter. (oh those crazy kids)
Two days later when engineers confirmed that the stadium would suffer no structural damage and after a huge petition was circulated the Chancellor announced that the "Jump Around" tradition would resume and all, once again, was right with the world.
Then there is the Brewers - never fear. The only thing to fear is the fact that against powerhouse pitching they have problems, but look, the Phillies did not really do that well either. All the games against the Cards and Phillies were low scoring. The Brewers will win the division and then in short 7 game series anything can happen.
Art Fair in Sun Prairie was very good. 25% better then last year in sales (same weather, same spot, same Badger game, everything was the same). Oddly and ONCE AGAIN, what sold in Fitchburg (Vince) did not even get glances Saturday. I wonder if everyone was in a Badger mood. Another thing I have noticed is that strangers are knowing how I am. They come up and call me by name and I don't have a clue who they are. Anyway, all is much better then good on the Art Fair Circuit.
I don't think DJ will win money this week on her awesome $20 football pool put on by a church (there were legal problems with "pool" and the name is now a "sweepstakes"! Each week she gets 3 random NFL teams. Add all the points scored and she COULD winn $500 a week. This week she had Houston (34) which seemed promising but then she had San Diego and Carolina( 24 & 21). Not going to make the cut. MAYBE 5th place but the Dallas/NYJ game hurt her. There has to be a TON of people in this pool, 17 weeks, 3 random teams $1000 a week given away. All for $20.
Have a great week and get those fire places ready - high Thursday will be in the middle 50s BRRRRR!
