The Buffalo Sabres appear to be making smart decision after smart decision.
Not only is their roster improving by leaps and bounds, but more importantly, the Sabres unveiled an awesome goal song.
When super rookie Jack Eichel scored his first NHL goal Thursday night, on his dad’s birthday no less, First Niagara Center swelled with the triumphant horns of DJ Kool’s “Let Me Clear My Throat” — a fail-safe party jam.

“Let Me Clear My Throat,” which samples Mark the 45 King’s classic breakbeat “The 900 Number,” defeated Tenpole Tudor’s “Swords of a Thousand Men” in a fan-voted contest and mercifully replaces U2’s “The Miracle (of Joey Ramone)” as the Sabres’ celebratory anthem.
Buffalo will never finish that low again, thanks to this beauty:
The Sabres using "Me Clear My Throat" as a goal song makes me so happy. Hockey is allowed to be fun.

Really hope the Sabres using Let Me Clear My Throat as their new goal song sparks a goal song revolution, seems overdue

Makes me sick that the Kings, Ducks, or Sharks don't use California Love as their goal song.
