President Lincoln, skip that show!
Amelia Earhart, please don’t go!
Dillinger, don’t trust that vamp!
Joba, please . . . avoid that tramp.
JFK, don’t take that ride!
Dr. King, sir, stay inside!
Julius Caesar, ditch that crown!
Joba, jump . . . just don’t come down.
Gorbachev, tear down this wall!
America, free beer for all!
Mariano, please don’t go!
Joba . . . say it isn’t so.
Hart Seely’s new book, The Juju Rules: Or How to Win Ballgames from Your Couch, is now in bookstores. He also runs the essential Yankee blog, It Is High, It Is Far, It Is . . . caught.
