In the battles we go through life
We ask for a chance that's fair
A chance to equal all our strife
A chance to do or dare
And if we win,
Let it be by the code
With faith and honor held high
And if we lose,
Let us stand by the road
And cheer as the winners go by.
Day by day
We get better and better
A team that can't be beat
Won't be beat.

Meanwhile, the Zags dismissed Marcus Smart United in a game that featured the most fouls in a non-overtime game since 1975. It was a very odd game, but the good guys won. And speaking of Duke, here's a well-prepared fan showing off his "FUCK DUKE" t-shirt on national TV. High five!
