Haiku Friday: Baseball

Yeah, it started when I wasn't looking. That seems to happen every year! Of course, part of that is from living in Minnesota, where we are still using the sled dogs this time of year.

To people like IPLawGuy, of course, it is a big deal. So let's haiku about that this week. Here, I will go first:

I still here his voice:
Ernie Harwell calling it
I sit on a swing.

Now it is your turn! Just use the 5/7/5 syllable formula and have some fun!

The Twins suck eggs.
That is all. // Not a haiku?
Guess we're 0 for 10.
Cleon Jones in left,
Tommy Agee in center,
Swoboda in right.

The Amazing Mets!
They were the team of my youth.
What more can I say?
Harmon Killebrew
Batting against the Tigers,
Knocks it out of park.
Jason 'roof top' Thompson
Over the right field bleachers
Going, going, gone....
Eighteen Eighty Eight
The Mighty Casey Struck out
No joy in Mudville

"Casey at the Bat" by Ernest Lawrence Thayer....

The smell of peanuts,
A cup of cold beer in hand,
The crack of a bat.
