BARDBALL’s rookie season was an experience that went far beyond our expectations. We’d like to sincerely thank everyone who checked us out, submitted poems, came to the “Poetry Grand Slam” in Chicago, and told their friends about us. Through sheer word-of-mouth, news about us spread all over the globe.
And Ernie Harwell sent us a lovely note. Ernie. Harwell. Can you dig it?
BARDBALL will be shutting down for the Hot Stove Season and emerge in Spring Training 2008 with new baseball verse, songs, and parody. We plan on some site improvements that will help us show more than one poem a day (to give the casual browser a chance to catch up) and allow video postings. We’ll also retire the “Barry Bonds Limerick Challenge” and keep an eye out for another juicy scandal to exploit. Other changes are also in the works. So bookmark us and check us out again next spring for the 2008 season.
So long, everybody! See you at game time!
James Finn Garner
