Cowsills up? Is that the Boston Red Sox rallying cry in '04? Before Game 3 of the ALCS, the '60s harmony group (the real-life inspiration for The Partridge Family) belted out the national anthem. Then they quickly segued into their signature hit, Hair, which, considering the Sawx players' manes this season, was an inspired selection:

Gimme a head with hair
Long, beautiful hair
Shining, gleaming,
Streaming, flaxen, waxen

Give me down to there
Shoulder length or longer hair
Here baby, there mama
Everywhere daddy daddy

Though, on second thought, did the folks at Fenway want to have anything to do with the word "daddy" this past week?
