Yankee fans always like to boast;
Instead, they got Pinstripe toast.
Time to give up chance’s ghost?
After Boston, it’s an almost.

The Cardinals lose, so Cubs win.
Should the party at Wrigley begin?
Or is making it rain
By spraying champagne
Committing a Cardinal sin?

Blue skies and green grass
A partner in crime to watch time pass
Sacks of peanuts and beers in hand
Everyone yelling “Out!” as loud as they can
Boxes filled with play after play
A ballpark dog eaten only one way
Lights brighten the night as the sun dies down
Last cheer erupts as the winning pitch leaves the mound

Take me out to the ballgame
(at Mega Predatory Capitalism Corp Park)
Take me out to the crowd
(taking selfies, texting their “friends” and checking email)
Buy me some peanuts and crackerjack
(How much? They’re PEANUTS!)
I don’t care if I never get back
(Actually, I do have to work in the morning)
For it’s root, root, root for the home team
(full of spoiled, right-wing millionaires)
If they don’t win, it’s a shame
(There’s always next year)
So it’s one, two, three strikes you’re out at the old ball game!

Tuesday, August 16
Cubs 4/4, Brewers 0/1
A sweep at Wrigley
We lose both games and players
Braun, Anderson hurt
Wednesday, August 17
Cubs 6, Brewers 1
Third straight loss to Cubs
Enough to make Crew fans drink
A case of Old Style
Thursday, August 18
Cubs 9, Brewers 6
Crew put up some runs
But cannot contain Bryant
Cubs are dominant
