out of the ashes of 06 they came
you remember them- they have a name
warriors decked in pinstripes silver and black
get prepared for a white sox attack.

WITH MUSCLES OF HONOR
THEY WILL NEVER RELENT
KNOCKING TEAMS TO THEIR KNEES
THE AMERICAN LEAGUE WILL REPENT

A mighty roar from the wizard of ozz
as he grabs the lineup card, his sword
as his team takes the field, he yells
the goal the title must and will be ours!

THE KIDS IN THE BULLPEN
THE ONES CRITICS SAID NO GOOD
WILL KEY THIS DYNASTY
ALONGSIDE THE VETERANS WHO COULD

Trampling all who stood in their way
in the path of justice- the white sox way
bombastic misiles fly off of bats so strong, this team can never, ever
do wrong

HAWK & DJ, A YOUNG SINGLETON AND A LOCAL FARMER TOO
WILL BROADCAST THE BRILLIANCE
OF THE DECIMATION OF N.L. OPPONENTS
AND THEIR FANS WHO WEAR RED AND BLUE

small ball will reign, thru spring and fall
the sox gameplan is the abduction of all of baseball
the critics, and media,now cower all stunned to see
the white sox as champions, from pacific to atlantic seas

THEY WERE EMBARASSED, YES ITS TRUE
BUT IT'S 07 NOT 6, THE PAST IS THROUGH
ALL WILL CONVERGE AND WITNESS OUR FATE
RECORD NUMBERS WILL PASS THRU CELLULAR GATES

The glorious story of ozzie's and KW's dream
will be told flanked by mighty Gladiators from third to first
everyone will know
fans from the right to center to left, breathtakingly witness our show
of the taking of whats rightfully ours, the sandlots biggest throne!

SO SOX FANS, GET READY,
ITS ABOUT TO BEGIN WHEN PITCHERS AND CATCHERS REPORT
ITS THE START OF A HISTORICAL MONUMENTAL SEASON,
THAT'S WAITING FOR ONLY US TO WIN !!!


glory and honor comes to the south side this fall
baseballs most incredible team, will never die at all
it might be tough- yes this might be true
but white sox destiny, is champions, for sox fans, like me and you !!!

You should quit your day job and become a poet on writing about the White Sox.

Definitely better than I could do. I'm one of those lefty-brainers; I appreciate art and creative effort, but have no capacity to produce it.

Anyway, nice job and let's hope it's accurate too!

Why is it that after I read that, visions of Zakk Wylde playing on a mountaintop popped into my head?

That was epic.

Let's hope Ozzie opens spring training with that exact speech.

I agree. That poem took a lot of thought. Something that lenghty is never easy to scribe. Nice Job!!:smile:

That poem reveals talent, thought, and a bit of an obsession, which of course, is just fine around these parts.

Thanks for the gem!

It's official - "The White Sox Way" - I love it.

A good friend suggested i send the poem to the Sox
And suggested maybe using it with a voiceover guy reading it
and clips of players crashing into walls, sliding, fans cheering etc
so i did.
And today Brooks Boyer called me!!!
He said he liked my poem and said i put a lot of thought into it.
He asked me permission to allow him to send it to the Advertising Agency the sox use.
He did say, he cant guarantee anything will happen.
But him simply calling me and saying nice things- well it made my Year!!!
I dont expect any action, done with it, but it was nice he considered it
anyhow.
And you guys were the first ones to read it.
