Battle of the Blogs!
It was our immense privilege this week to participate in a Battle of the Blogs with fellow Orlando City blogs Orlando City UK and Northern Ireland City Fan, hosted by OC Lions Blog. Challenge number 1 was set earlier this week. All 4 participants had an hour to come up with a chant for a randomly selected Orlando City player. The whole squad was entered into the hat, with Robin Jansson being... The victor? I guess?
So get voting! Pretty please. With a cherry on top. If you want to vote because you like our chants, or you pity me you can do so HERE.
So we set our minds to work, and this is what we all came up with:
First up, yours truly...
To the tune of God of Thunder by NerdOut (Thor Ragnarok parody song) Re-imagined Lyrics This is the team Robin gathered up, We need to stop that Ragnarok, We're gonna raise our Jansson up, We need to stop that Ragnarok. We fight for the land, like Jansson does.
A battle with us won't do you any good, We're seeing the flames consume our world, We're not about to watch it burn, With one swing Robin will take you down, Exploria is our sacred ground.
Fighting for our very lives, Miami tellin' hella lies Jansson is down to ride, it’s going down tonight...
*ROBIN JANSSON* *GOD OF THUNDER* -chant, then repeat.
Second to the crease, Cameron of Orlando City Fan Northern Ireland
Robin Jansson (to the tune of La Bamba) We’ve got a Defender called Jansson He comes from Sweden He’ll put your head in Jansson oh Jansson Robin Jansson, Robin Jansson.
Thirdly, Gavin of OC Lions Blog
To the tune of the South Park Hanukkah song:
We have a centerback, he comes from Trollhattan, His name is Robin Jansson, and he is big and brawn! He worked in a factory, he used to make horseshoes, Now he's our defender, you know you won't breakthrough, OH Robin Robin Jansson, you're our heart and soul Robin Robin Jansson, you will protect our goal!
And completing the line-up, Taylor of Orlando City UK
To the tune of Frank Sinatra’s I Love You Baby... We Love You Jansson, Because You’ve Got Blonde Hair We Love You Jansson, Because You Just Don’t Care We Love You Jansson, Purple Through And Through.
Thanks for voting everyone. Stay safe 💜
