Everyone knows about Philadelphia's long and painful sport's history. Samuel is grieving over a past that has no future (Saul). And the Lord say fill thine horn and go (to anoint the new king). In other words, the meaning of this passage is that you must forget the past and move forward to enjoy life. Just a guess.
Jeez, I never liked "Boo Yah," but at least we didn't need a history lesson to understand it.
