Bradenton construction worker records Lightning songs

Inside his small home-studio, Bradenton's Mike Lovy rigged-up what he needs to belt out his support for the Tampa Bay Lightning.

This construction worker and amateur songwriter has recorded hundreds of sports parody songs including a trio of Lightning tunes.

Just like the playoff beard he's grown, it's all in good fun.

"If anybody is expecting a good singer they're looking in the wrong place, but if you're looking for lyrics that are funny and that are spot-on to the situation then yes," Lovy said.

He says he can write a song in a night, but recording it isn't so easy.

"It has to be done in one take. I don't have the technology to just stop and piece it together as I go," Lovy said.

Afterwards, it's got to pass the "wife test".

"I give it to my wife to listen to. She gives me the thumps up or the thumps down. She's my best critic," he said.

He says the online reaction has been solid.

"Every night there's a hockey game it spikes up there," Lovy said.

It's a mix of fun, a little bit of rock and roll, and a whole lot of team spirit.
