Stuffing the Passer - The Gang Sings a Sea Shanty

Some games are harder to get motivated for than others. Sure, anyone can get fired up for the game against USC or Michigan, but it takes some special maneuvering by the coaching staff to get the squad amped up for a game against Navy. It's important to do so, though, since it was a mere two years ago that the Midshipmen snuck up on a lackadaisical Irish and broke a 43-year losing streak in hearbreaking fashion.

The good news is that Muppet Charlie Weis has a secret weapon for Navy game preparedness. What better way to prepare for your enemy than by using his greatest asset against him? I'm talking, of course, of the power of sea shanties.

Huh, that usually works. Sharpley... a little help?
