Things I Shouldn’t Have to Do

albert pujols.jpgApparently my heartfelt tribute to the Cardinals rang hollow in some quarters of the interwebs. And it hurts me to see that while I am on vacation I have to check in to see such vitriol pointed in my general direction. So, because I want to be the bigger man, I decided to write another little ode to the Cardinals. However, this time I will do it in limerick form.

Albert: Another grand slam
McGwire: A forgotten man
     Why keep on pitchin’
     When Pujols is itchin’
And balls just wind up in the stands?

Is that better, Mr. Lung? Are we square now? Or do you plan to continue denigrating my good faith efforts?

At least there is one thing we can agree on. We may not be number one but it still feels pretty good to be number two. Actually, that just sounds wrong.

Happy Saturday!

I didn’t quite feel the sincerety in that.. and whats with the gay pic of A-Ols, with a slight smile while he strokes his bat, thats a little pg-ish….although its probably the only time the guy is sorta smiling….

That limerick is late 80’s hip-hop gold. Whoop there it is!

I don’t know… the word “itchin'” is a little too close to the word “balls.”

Well, you did bring up McGwire. That might tick him off. Maybe you should have put in something about the ’87 World Series. Oh, wait…
