Unapologetic collegiate lacrosse team enters game BLAZING pro-Trump anthem in place of fight song

Now there’s an idea that could gain some stream!

Athletic teams will typically run out on the field displaying the school banner while the band blares out their fight song.

The men’s lacrosse team at Long Island, New York’s Adelphi University came up with what some may call a politically incorrect variation on that tradition.

In place of a school banner they decided to display the stars and stripes. And instead of the school fight song to rouse the spirits, they played a portion of a Donald Trump speech.

“In all of our cities and all of our towns, I make this promise,” Trump can be heard saying. “We will make America strong again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And we will make America great again.”

At that point the players began their run onto the field as the president completed his message.

“God bless you, and good night. I love you.”

Barstool Sports posted a 39-second video of the team’s unusual entrance to its Instagram feed on Wednesday. A day later it had nearly a million views.

Danny McCabe, Adelphi’s athletic director, said the team’s unorthodox entrance conformed to school policy.

“The men’s lacrosse team’s regular-season pregame warm-up music is selected as a team and approved for use so long as they do not contain vulgarity or inappropriate subject matter,” McCabe said in a statement. “The songs they proposed and used this season meet those guidelines. As such, we are obliged to follow the policy.”

Gordon Purdie, Adelphi men’s lacrosse coach reported that the team “traditionally has chosen patriotic music” to accompany their entrances, according to Newsday.

“It was not intended to provoke or be taken as a political statement,” he said. “We’re sorry if anyone was offended.”

And apparently it offended someone. Although they played the Trump speech at a previous game, the Adelphi players won’t be able to repeat that performance at Saturday’s tournament against Pace University, because of NCAA rules regulating playoff games. The rules state, “no team provided warm-up music is permissible” except for that provided by the host team, which must consist of “neutral music.”

For those who may have been offended — including the NCAA — the fictional Marine Col. Nathan R. Jessup, played by Jack Nicholson in the film “A Few Good Men,” has these words to offer.
