One perfect lesson:
“Toughness” is no replacement
for smarts and talent
The car will not go
if Car-Go cannot go for
more than half the trip
If Vin Scully calls
a game on SportsNet LA,
does anyone hear?
Best way to catch flies?
Simple. Put shit in your field!
Oh, wait…they’ve tried that
The World Champions
now go begging for alms to
replace their lost pence
by the Village Elliott
Ain’t Pete Carroll, but Charlie Dressen,
Made worst sports call. History lesson:
Jints Thompson called, “Thank-a
God, he called Ralph Branca!”
Call Flatbush calls “Bums’ Most Depressin’!”

From Jackie Robinson
I learned about grace under the gun
From Satchel Paige
I learned of the illusions of age
From Dick Allen
I learned never to give in
From Hammerin’ Hank Aaron
I learned to keep on keepin’ on
But from Ernie Banks
I learned to give thanks.
RIP. Let’s play two, forevermore.

After 57 years of mourning and booze,
I’m still elated to see L.A. lose.
No heroics. No ninth inning rally.
I’ll hate you forever –Walter O’Malley.
