VOLUNTEERS & REFS WELCOME!
(to the tune of “the Brady Bunch”)
Here’s the story of a Dawesome coach
Who was training up some very lovely girls.
All of them had shirts of sparkly blue, just like their panties,
And 705 was what they called their home.
Here’s the story, of a league called PRD,
Who was busy with skaters of their own,
They were awesome, skating all together,
Yet they were all alone.
Till the one day when the leagues started dating
And they knew it was much more than a hunch,
That this group must somehow form a family.
That’s the way we all became the Brady Crunch.
The Brady Crunch,
The Brady Crunch,
That’s the way we became the Brady Crunch.
