    On this most perfect of combinations of Saturdays, the stars have aligned. The two biggest non-family related days of my life have crossed paths, and I am sure it hasn’t gone unnoticed by the city. And so, in honor of the ceremonial first home game of the season, and my Irish family of which has come before me, I present this song and some blessings to lift us safely to the game, to help beers straightly to our mouths, to guide balls quickly into the potato sacks, and to protect us safely, drunken and satisfied, back home after.

    Oh Sporting Blue, the pitch, the pitch is calling
    From goal to goal, and down the byline,
    The season’s here, and all the fans have been pining,
    ‘Tis you, ‘tis you must run, and I must watch,
    But run all season, as the season’s heat bears down on you,
    Or when the grass is soaked and sloppy with rain,
    ‘Tis I’ll be here in sunshine or in shadow,
    Oh Sporting Blue, oh Sporting Blue, I love you so.

    And when we score, when all the confetti is flying,
    And I am jumping, jumping high as I can,
    You’ll come and slide to the place where I am standing,
    And kneel and shout an “I believe that we will win” for me.

    And I shall see, you lift the trophy above me,
    And our dreams of winning will it the sweeter be,
    If you’ll not fail to play as hard as you believe,
    I’ll simply stand and cheer this season for coming to me,

    I’ll simply stand and cheer this season for coming to me.

    May the pitch rise up to meet you.
    May our goal always be at your back.
    May the ball fall softly at your feet,
    The set pieces always go as planned,
    And until you hold the cup again,
    May Livestrong hold you in the heart of its fan.

    Our fans are the best fans,
    Loyal, willing and able.
    Now let’s get to drinking and scoring goals,
    All glasses off the table!!!

    Let the party begin!
