The other day on Twitter, we held a bit of a vote to see if we could come up with this season's official name for the press box. Since @TPLHockey first dubbed it the Leino Lounge, we've had a few different names for it based on who our favorite healthy scratch would be. This year, we've given it a new name.
To celebrate the one-year deal for everybody's favorite zombie and his subsequent claim to the healthy scratch list, we gave the ol' White Watchtower a bit of a jauntier name: The Cleary Cabana. It almost sounds pleasant from here to have a place where players can sit and watch the team.
But c'mon, we couldn't name it something like that without giving it its theme song. I asked our followers to provide the proper lyrics to the theme song from the Cleary Cabana, and they delivered. Juuuuust in case your mother didn't raise you with an ear for Mr. I-Write-The-Songs himself, here's the tune we were looking to parody.

Almost all of our contestants got that, and we'll post each submission, but let's get straight to the winner Thanks so much to @TheRoar_24 for getting this song permanently stuck in my head (and for the banner pic):
At the cleary.. she lost her love

Finally, we also got @BDJargon's submission

I was a little coy in talking about the song that I specifically wanted, but this entry from @MikeObrand set to Escape (The Pina Colada Song) was too good to disqualify and, honestly is my second-place finisher here anyway:
