Curt Schilling, the Yankees, and Translation

I was translating a piece earlier today, when I came across the phrase "ha-kesem ve-hahila", and was trying to figure out a way to translate it in a way that would keep the two as a literary unit. Remembering Curt Schilling's famous line before the 2001 World Series between the D-Backs and Yankees, I decided to translate the phrase as "mystique and aura". My apologies to nightclub dancers.
