Does any American sporting team have a chant that doesn't begin "Let's go..."?

every game I've been to in North America (albeit 90% baseball), throughout Chicago, New York, San Francisco and Toronto, every team seems to have the exact same chant: "Let's go [insert team moniker]"

sorry, there's no real purpose to this post.

I wasn't ready for it when I went to Yankee stadium. Unbearable and very high pitched. I like it when the chanting is competitive like at a football match (ie a real sport).
I don't know whether 'Let's Go' was more irritating than 'Aussie, Aussie, Aussie'. Debatable point that one.
Without being unkind I don't think Sport's fans elsewhere are quite as creative as the British although I'd give a big shout out to the Croatian football fans, they were an interesting and lively bunch.

Hey Ho Lets Go
Hey Ho Lets Go

(overheard at Ramones concerts and in the red light districts of the finest American cities)

I agree with you completely. I think football is the best sport around. Who is your team? I'm a Oakland Raiders fan myself.....

Don't the Indiana Hoosiers fans chant "Whose Your Daddy?". Because WHOSE YOUR sounds identical to HOOSIERS...

Perhaps this was more frequent when Bobby Knight was still there kicking arses and taking names

I thought this was the "Pedro" chant.

That's funny, because I didn't know that Chelsea had an NFL Europe team......
