Now that they've officially clinched, I think the A's need an inspirational hymn that they can sing in the clubhouse before every game, to build unity and focus and to honor the great and powerful Woofing Gods.
Here are my suggested lyrics (original is available here):
And Did Those Cleats
And did those cleats in ancient time
Run across Oakland's outfield green?
And did the steeley Voice of God
Announce the lineups, true and keen?
And did the Countenance Divine
Assemble teams of grace and skill?
And did he curse and throw his chair
Upon his dark, satanic treadmill?
Bring me my glove of burning gold!
Bring me my high socks of desire!
Bring me my rebar -- o, clouds unfold!
Bring me my unicorn of fire!
I will not cease from grit and fight
Nor shall my bat sleep in my hand
'Til we have won a World Series
'Neath Oakland's green, tarped-over stands!
(I posted an earlier version of this in a comment on the Game 24 thread, though it was on a slightly different topic. Hell, if Wordsworth can revise the Prelude, I figure I can tinker with this).
