Le Resistance

Thank you for risking your safety to gather here, members of the Resistance.   We are gathered here in secret to plan our massive occupation of Tahrir Square... no wait, I mean the Oakland Coliseum... this upcoming homestand.

Yes, friends, the big sh!tstorm is only a couple of days away.  Hope you're all busy cutting eyeholes in paper bags and making "Fire Bob Now!" signs.    Hope you're busy toughening your calluses for the "Fi-re Ge-ren" Clap Clap CLAP CLAP CLAP!   Hope you're busy doing vocal exercises to stretch your volume those few crucial decibels and your stamina in case there are extra innings.  

Make sure that your smartphones are charged up and have ample data storage available.   If A's management and/or security decides to take an aggressive stance against the bags and signs, make sure to take video of their confiscation, and/or patrons not being allowed inside with the signs.   That footage would be GOLD on Deadspin and TMZ Sports, as well as other media outlets.

Also, if you happen to be sitting in a good crowd of people with signs or bags or a particularly good chant going on, video that too.   If it's not impressive enough for the big boys, it'll still be fun to watch on AN.

Remember to BOO THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS out of Geren whenever he comes out of the dugout to argue or for a pitching change.    Or, CHANT LOUDER.

This is 2011, and if 2011 has proven ANYTHING to us this year, it's that the spirit of revolt and protest and revolution is ALIVE and SUCCESSFUL, and even though the state of our Athletics pales in importance to actual matters of life and death, the spirit of change and fighting for what you want and believe in is very strong, and it's time for A's fans who deeply care about the immediate future of this club to get on board for REGIME CHANGE NOW, and make yourselves heard LOUD AND PROUD at the Coliseum this next homestand.
