LIMERICK 3/162: IN WHICH TED LILLY FAILS TO LIVE UP TO A FAMOUS QUOTE BY HIS NAMESAKE


I missed just about all of today's game.  Sounds like I missed nothing good.  It's behind us, and good riddance.  I will be at the stadium tomorrow and bringing just about everybody who is related to me. 

The grammar in today's limerick is a little off, and making the rhyme work means mangling a famous quote.  Forgive me.  It's a 10-run loss.  I'm not too inspired. 

Roosevelt, famous for bluster:
“Speak soft; carry all you can muster.”
These were no Teddy Bears:
The big sticks were theirs.
He was less Teddy R and more Custer.
