A Terrible Poem About Opening Day

On Opening Day
(Which is well before May)
Each team is in very first place.

The goal is a ring
It is earned swing by swing
And the occasional theft of a base

Which team takes it all?
Who’ll be crowned King Baseball?
All for grabs here on Opening Day

Any team could grab glory
Be a Hollywood story
If the Sporting Gods say that they may

Except for the Brewers
They’ll wind up in the sewers
Along with the Angels and A’s

And the Braves and the Twins
They just won’t have the wins
Nor San Diego’s Padres.

The Phillies: unfulfilling
The Reds are less than thrilling
Arizona fans will end up blue

But there’s still cheer
This baseball year:
The Yankees? They suck, too.


  1. April in the D (April on my D). Gonna win for Mr. I.

  2. My Beloved Royals are in year 2 of their 30 year World Series Rebuilding Cycle. The excitement is palpable!

      You won two years ago.TWO. You are not allowed to be sarcastic about your team for at least two more years.

    Magnetic Schedules for Opening Day. Felix’s beard is looking like Roast Pork/Duck Guy’s at Kau Kau, just noticed that.
