To be sung to the tune of My Favorite Things, from The Sound of Music:

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,
Tyson in Memphis knocked out by a Briton.
Islanders-Rangers and Avalanche-Wings,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Cream-colored ponies and crisp apple strudel,
Dueling Zambonis and Don Zimmer's noodle.
Dot races, br�t races, buffalo wings,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes,
Marge Schott's and Schottzie's respective mustaches.
New York Mets pitchers who don't blow smoke rings,
These are a few of my favorite things.

When my Vikes choke,
My remote's broke,
When I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don't feel so bad.

Bluegrass Kentucky, where corn's in the colonels,
Short lines at halftimes for trough-style urinals
Drowning, in anger, a new set of Pings,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Black pints of Guinness with priestly foam collars,
Beer nuts and beer guts and Bowling for Dollars.
Toothless behemoths who win Lady Byngs,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Father-son hooligans perp-walked in handcuffs
Manifold species of sportswriters' dandruffs.
Silence, like deep space, before Tiger swings,
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the roof leaks,
When Don King speaks,
When I'm feeling sad,

I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don't feel so bad.
