Hank Steinbrenner's Heart Grew Three Sizes That Day

Every fan down in Bronxville, the tall and the small,
Was singing! Without any playoffs at all!
He HADN'T stopped October from coming! IT CAME!
Somehow or other, it came just the same!
And the Psycho Fan, knee-deep in beer number three,
Stood puzzling and puzzling: "How could it be?"
"It came with out Jeter! It came without Mo!"
"It came without Jorgie or Robbie Cano!"
And he puzzled three hours, till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Fan thought of something he hadn't before!
"Maybe a Yank-less October," he thought, "doesn't have to be a bore."
"Maybe October...perhaps...means a little bit more!"
