Another DVD extra [Oct. 20th, 2004|09:38 am]

[Current Mood |all of them?]
[Current Music |duh.]

Our Curt saw the Red Sox in trouble
A great season going to waste
His ankle tendon dislocatin'
And surgery needed posthaste
So he said "Red Sox Nation still needs me"
He said "Steinbrenner can not win them all"
So Curt strapped on his brace
And with pain on his face
Threw seven frames of 4-hit ball


He held off the Yankees
And he evened the score
He took to the mound
And slammed shut the door
With fastballs and sliders
And curves in the dirt
The hero of Beantown
The man they call Curt


Now here is what separates heroes
From common folk like you and I.
The man they call Curt
Ignored his big hurt
And let another pitch fly.

His sock was covered in crimson
It's hard to believe he could stand
The man they call Curt
In the white Red Sox shirt
Savior of Francona's band.


He held off the Yankees
And he evened the score
He took to the mound
And slammed shut the door
With fastballs and sliders
And curves in the dirt
The hero of Beantown
The man they call Curt

Now that the series is over and I can breathe again, I can say what I meant to yesterday: This rocked.

Yes, it's Hero of Canton. The lines above that scan like hell are actually like that in the original. Apparently folk songs weren't exactly clear on meter.

Feel free to pimp it.

OMG! This is fabulous. I must pimp this! (It goes with my "Johnny Damon and Boromir: Separated at Birth?" post of this morning.)

Really, all of the Firefly crew would be Sox fans. (OK, maybe not Jayne - I think he would have approved of "Slappy" Rodriguez' move.)
