Lynah Faithful

So maybe you’re a freshman and you wanna be a member of the Lynah Faithful but you don’t know where to start. Or perhaps you are a Section B’er that is too embarrassed to admit you don’t know when to break out your keys in the 3rd. Or maybe you are a returning alum that wants to brush up on newer cheers, like the Underhill and Bâby Songs.

Well, you’ve come to the right place. Other than being the Cowbell Guy’s roommate for 2 years, this page is the fastest way to get up to speed on the what you need to know. For the Type-A folks out there, I also recommend the Band’s Cornell College Hockey Primer. Otherwise, you can simply scroll on down for the goods. –>credit to John Hayes ’98 and ’00 for the original “Cheers Page”

Before the Game


When the opposing team is introduced, the Faithful rattle newspapers and chant Boooriiing, Boooriiing. When Arthur Mintz ’71, our beloved announcer, says “And now the starting line up for the Big Red”, crumple up your newspaper and throw it on the ice. Note, at away games, do not throw *anything* on to the ice. Instead, throw the papers at the other Faithful.

  • Variation 1 (Against Harvard): Throw your fish onto the ice when Harvard players first come onto the ice. (You did buy a fish for this purpose at Wegman’s, didn’t you?)
  • Variation 2 (Against Colgate): Throw empty boxes of Colgate onto the ice. You might want to weigh down the box so it throws farther. Make sure to take the toothpaste out first.

Canadian National Anthem

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all of us command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
Our True North strong and free!
From far and wide, O Canada!
We stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada!
Terre de nos ai eux
Ton front est ceint
De fleurons glorieux
Car ton bras sait porter L’epe-e-e
Il said porter la croix
Ton histoire est une epope-e-e. Des plus brillants exploits
Et ta valeur de foi trempee
Protegera nos foyers et nos droits
Protegera nos foyers et nos droits

American National Anthem

Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets’ RED*1 glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof thro’ the night {SUCK}*2 that our flag was still there.
O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

*1 – shouted by the crowd
*2 – Used only when playing the Clarkson Golden Knights
