Gunter glieben glauchen globen…

The Smith College Squash Team is frantically reworking their pre-match team cheer following Junior Semester Away Captain Alice “Red” Reznickova’s pre-competition advice:

“And, most importantly: OUR CHEER after the intros IS “SMITH”. Simply Smith. Do not try to discuss it just before you have to do it. It’s a waste of time and in the end it’s still just “SMITH”.”

A hasty improvisation before the Northeastern matcheinszweidrei – SMITH!” did not meet with universal team approval – in fact some were quite distraught and angry on the trip to Wellesley.

Meg Oliverio and the team’s two American Studies students have suggested a classical Germanic folk saying (as used by Def Leppard in their Pyrotechnic Album – lyrics here – and later by the Offspring – go to the YouTube link), although they have been slow to provide the exact translation:

“Gunter glieben glauchen globen…SMITH!”
