Tribute to the A's Year of the Walk-Off! Lyrics, in case you're watching at work and can't turn on the sound: It’s a walk-off, walk-off kind of day. You know you spell that with an “A”. It’s a walk-off kind of year. It’s got the Angels playing in fear. A walk-off kind of day. It’s not too surprising, tension is rising, are we winning or losing, are we cruising for a bruising. On the way to the top, or is someone going to stop us. We can’t stop to wonder if we’re over or we’re under. We’ll just get out and play day by day. We don’t have much money but we do have a movie, and we have Billy Beane, and we think he’s kind of groovy. The big bad Wolff wants to drive us from the city. Just like us it’s scrappy and gritty. We’ll just get out and play day by day. It’s a walk-off, walk-off kind of day. You know you spell that with an “A”. It’s a walk-off kind of year. It’s got the Angels playing in fear. A walk-off kind of day. A walk-off’s not a metaphor, it’s really nothing more than leaving the winning to the very last inning. Don’t live your life like that but if you’re up at bat you could be the guy who wins the pie. But just get out and play day by day. It’s a walk-off, walk-off kind of day. You know you spell that with an “A”. It’s a walk-off kind of year. It’s got the Angels playing in fear. A walk-off kind of day. Go A’s!

Interview with Grant Balfour. One of my buddies at SF State passed this along; he is the third one, who asks about Balfour's practice of talking to himself on the mound. Yes, I totally told him to ask that.

80's power ballad features 1989 A's and Oakland Coliseum Here are the lyrics if you wanna sing along. I think this song is about Jesus, if that's your thing. If not, there's plenty else to make you smile, erect, cry, etc. I've been where you are before No one understands it more You fear every step you take So sure that your heart will break It's not how the story ends You'll be back on your feet again Baby, this time There ain't nothing gonna take this heart away No more goodbyes There ain't nothing gonna take my heart away The pain's still alive in you For what one man put you through You say that we're all the same But I'm called by no other name We all need a place to run Won't you let me be the one Don't keep the dream in you locked outside your door Just believe in this love And don't be afraid anymore I need you to please be strong I've waited for you too long This time There ain't nothing gonna take this heart away No more goodbyes There ain't nothing gonna take my heart away There ain't nothing gonna take this heart away.
