Not to disagree with John Miller, but Yalle Tigereem actually means to rise up Tigers, not really go tigers.  Plus, Tiger in hebrew is Namer.  Furthermore, Cardinals in hebrew is Cardinals, and the way you say the Cardinals will win in hebrew is H’Cardinals Yinazchu. 


I can live with “Rise Up Tigers!” And with this, all commentary on how to cheer for baseball teams in Hebrew is hereby ended.
