You'll have to forgive me if some of these are second rate.
#23 DODGERS DELIVER A SERIES WIN AGAINST THE CUBS
Their gonfalon bubble was burst!
Their goat is got! Ha, they are cursed!
The Dodgers were grinning
(Like Mister Sheen, #winning!)
Because they scored five in the first!
#24 LOSING CAN MAKE YOU DEEEEEE-MENTED
I hear they don’t dance or play ball
(Or wear sweaters – or nothin’ at all)
But be sure Fish are dead
Or your face will be red
And then down in the ninth you will fall.
#25 IN TONIGHT’S PERFORMANCE, THE ROLE OF CLOSER WILL BE PLAYED BY….
Ninth inning! That grandest of stage!
Where winners and losers are gauged!
But -- ere “up curtain” --
It’s best to be certain
The players are on the same page.
#26 IS ENLIGHTENMENT THE BRIGHT SIDE OF MEDIOCRITY?
In the stretch, wins and losses count ten.
Nirvana’s way out of my ken,
But still I have wonder’d --
By going .500
Have they reached perfect balance and zen?
