A new version of "Sing a Song of Sixpence" would go like this:
Sing a song of sixpence
Pocket full of rye.
One and Ten Oakland Raiders,
Baked in a pie.
When the pie was opened,
the players begin to win.
Wasn't that a mighty dish
to set before the king, Al Davis.
Normally if you prepare a pie and put live birds in it, the birds would die and be cooked while alive in the pie.
Well, the Oakland Raiders' pie has been baking for seven years. Here's what we want, a surprise.
When the NFL opens the pie in 2010, we expect our team to be alive and well and to fly high.
Now, won't that be a wonderful sight and event to set before the king of the Raiders' franchise, Al Davis?
The Raider Nation has been "singing a song," repeating ourselves and chanting that we want victories.
This is written for Memorial Day 2010. We remember the good times and the bad times, now it is time to expect victories in 2010. We want to win! Go Raiders!
