EVERYTHING IN LIFE THAT IS IMPORTANT I LEARNED FROM THE OAKLAND A'S

The only race that matters is the race to the bag.
The creed is merely the rulebook.
The only colors that matter are KELLY GREEN & FORT KNOX GOLD.
If you ain't played nine, the game ain't over.
Play hard for nine innings, and something good will happen.
Contentment stinks. Stay focused. (Carney Lansford.)
You can't buy chemistry.
Never become too attached to any one player. Eventually, he will be gone.
Wish the other team, well, until they play against the A's. Then hope they die like a dog.
Real A's fans root for two teams. The A's, and whoever is playing AGAINST the Yankees.
Unlike opera, the game doesn't even get interesting until the fat lady sings.
No matter where you are, you always have a better view of any given play then the umpire.
There is no such thing as good indoor baseball. (Unless your team is winning.)
No matter how important the game, don't forget to have some fun.

Get `em on, get `em over, get `em home. _ Tony LaRussa
Be disruptive on the basepaths. -Brad Fischer
When opportunity calls, pick up the phone. - Bob Geren (A's bullpen coach)
Don't go out of your "zone." - Dave Hudgens
Organization starts with a good clipboard. - Chris Speier
Always keep `em guessing. - Curt Young
You don't even need your coffee that day. If you can't get pumped up for Opening day/night, you'll never get pumped up for a game. - Matt Stairs
When you're used to winning, it's no fun to lose. - Ray Fosse
The indicator sign is right before the real sign, unless the wipe sign comes after it. (?) - Ron Washington

It doesn't cost you anything to hustle.
There's no such thing as TOO MANY A'S GAMES!

STEROIDS, SHCMERIODS. SHUT UP AND PLAY BALL!!!
