Real Reason Why UCLA Lost!

Much ink and megabytes has been and will be spilled regarding UCLA's embarrassing loss in the Final Four yesterday, but no one has yet discussed the "Final Countdown" curse.

Before tipoff, the UCLA band played a brass version of the 1986 glam rocker immortalized by GOB Bluth in greatest-show-about-OC Arrested Development (see below for a great SpongeBob Squarepants version). The last time couple of times I've seen a sports team play this song before the game, they've lost. Why oh why, UCLA did you play this anthem of losers?
