M-A-R-L-I-N-S/We are the Marlins — go, Fish!
Everything is great in the Sunshine State/We got the Marlins, the Mi-a-mi Marlins.

• The new uniforms. (Remember how those leaked and we wondered, "Have they really gone rainbow?")
• The thing in center field.
And now the sequel to "Sweet Freedom" by Michael McDonald comes out and they deny any involvement. You can still sing along, of course, or throw a brick through your Internet browser if you don't like it. And we can even make it the team's unofficial theme. It's like choosing your own nickname. Unless you're George Costanza, you don't get to do that.
But there's one thing we can't do this time: Blame the Marlins.
