It was one of those things that just pop into my mind for no good reason, but I decided to test if my imagination had gone kerflooey and did a Yahoo! search on “brek ek ek ek” to see if anything would happen.
To my astonishment I found Leave it to Yalies to cheer in ancient Greek at a football game – which makes as much sense as the thing ever did to me.
I believe I ran across this “cheer” decades ago, perhaps in a book of old music or college songs or something along those lines. I’m pretty sure I never heard it being used at a game I attended.
But the very idea made me think the topic would be fun to pursue, with other examples of bizarre or crazy cheers from wherever. YouTube clips would be even more exciting. For instance: The Yale Long Cheer
Anyway, what’s the most unusual cheer you’ve run across?
