The noble game of Base Ball,
is fun except when it is other
than.

But, Boring? Never! For a
scoreless contest
is for the competitors’ clash,
a long rememb’red Smash!

Yet Gladiator must eventually
best
Bear or Lion, or the Christians
may rebel or riot. The Lictor
cannot hold the crowd to
peace
solely with Panem, Circenses,
nor Ben’s Hot Chili Half
Smokies!

We admit, playin the foe
on home field advantage in
Cali,
was never deemed most jolly.

The Red loses to these boys
with ungodly regularity.

it’s nearly regurgitatie
-This crushing cycle of
polarity-

Even the shining young
Knights
of these Nats in flight,
cannot hold their own on the
road!

Ergo, our gleaming advantage
shall fade. But Nats have it
made,
E’en in defeat.

NEVER ARE THEY BORING!
