Song vs. Song

אלה ברכב ואלה בסוסים ואנחנו בשם ה' אלקינו נזכיר

This weekend, they sing and we sing.

Bear Down, Chicago Bears.עַד שַׁקַּמְתִּי דְּבוֹרָה,
Make every play clear the way to victory!נָחִיתָ בְחַסְדְּךָ, עַם-זוּ גָּאָלְתָּ; נֵהַלְתָּ בְעָזְּךָ, אֶל-נְוֵה קָדְשֶׁךָ.
Bear Down, Chicago Bears.שַׁקַּמְתִּי אֵם בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל
Put up a fight with a might so fearlessly!תִּפֹּל עֲלֵיהֶם אֵימָתָה וָפַחַד, בִּגְדֹל זְרוֹעֲךָ יִדְּמוּ כָּאָבֶן:
We'll never forget the way you thrilled the nation,עַד יַעֲבֹר עַמְּךָ יְהוָה, עַד-יַעֲבֹר עַם-זוּ קָנִיתָ.
With your T formation.מִנִּי אֶפְרַיִם, שָׁרְשָׁם בַּעֲמָלֵק, אַחֲרֶיךָ בִנְיָמִין, בַּעֲמָמֶיךָ; מִנִּי מָכִיר, יָרְדוּ מְחֹקְקִים, וּמִזְּבוּלֻן, מֹשְׁכִים בְּשֵׁבֶט סֹפֵר. וְשָׂרַי בְּיִשָּׂשכָר, עִם-דְּבֹרָה, וְיִשָּׂשכָר כֵּן בָּרָק, בָּעֵמֶק שֻׁלַּח בְּרַגְלָיו; בִּפְלַגּוֹת רְאוּבֵן, גְּדֹלִים חִקְקֵי לֵב.
Bear Down, Chicago Bears.עוּרִי עוּרִי דְּבוֹרָה, עוּרִי עוּרִי דַּבְּרִי-שִׁיר
And let them know why you're wearing the crown.יְהוָה יִמְלֹךְ, לְעֹלָם וָעֶד.
You're the pride and joy,אָשִׁירָה לַיהוָה כִּי-גָאֹה גָּאָה
of all Illinois.תְּבִאֵמוֹ, וְתִטָּעֵמוֹ בְּהַר נַחֲלָתְךָ מָכוֹן לְשִׁבְתְּךָ פָּעַלְתָּ, יְהוָה
Chicago Bears, Bear Down!קוּם בָּרָק וּשְׁבֵה שֶׁבְיְךָ, בֶּן אֲבִינֹעַם.

Full Disclosure: I am a Bears fan, and I will likely end up watching most of the game. However, I'm sick and tired of the media hype of the game, and having the Bears the first item on the news for a month straight. So, Go Bears, but let's start singing the important songs in life.

Let's see if I have this right. The Bears play football, correct? That is the game with the weird ball which they throw backwards all the time, with their hands, but it's called football nevertheless, right? And everybody is tumbling every three seconds and the referees are interfering all the time, as to make time for commercials. Right? Did the Bears win?

Enough with stupid football.
There is time to see and to sing everyone to the God of All, who is in charge of every bum in this planet, doesn't matter what land,race,nation and religion he belong. Sing for the God who will crush all the bums of this small planet who is Evil, because of its human animaals. They will be transformed to human being or they will be all burn this year, by the God's Fire, Breath.

Anonymous from Monday,
Yes, the football where many of the points are scored by kicking the ball through a goalpost. I'd MUCH rather watch that than soccer. If I were forced to watch a soccer game, I'd likely bring along a Humash to do Shenayim Mikra Ve'ehad Targum. Either that or a pillow. And no, the Bears lost. See Rafi's post on the matter.
