As the pennant race heats up, it is time for the Tampa Bay Rays to announce their presence with authority. The Rays need an anthem, and there is no more perfect anthem than “Seven Nation Army” by The White Stripes.
The song is already popular at many European soccer events. Watch the following video and imagine how intimidating the Trop would be with 36,000 fans chanting in unison inside an enclosed dome…
This song also works perfectly with the Rays goal to broaden the appeal of the team outside of the Tampa/St. Pete area. Each of the Seven “Armies” can be representative of different counties/cities that compose the majority of the Rays fan base. There is even a marketing angle here that should entice the team, selling T-shirts and other items identifying which “Army” a fan is a member of.
C’mon Stu, you can make this happen.
