Game 6 limerick

Didn't know what to write about for this one - thanks to Phil for the inspiration and nolander for not knowing the timeframe of the GO GO GO chant. Hope this suffices. It was either this or a...

Game 5 limerick

Went out to lunch with a friend and caught most of the game on the TV at Ford's Filling Station. The burger was as tasty as Kershaw's stuff. I don't really have a limerick about yesteday's game...

Game 4 limerick

Well, that could have been a lot more fun if not for the Grand Slam. Oh, well, you can't win 'em all. I guess we just picked the wrong Padre lefty that was gonna give our boys trouble... Is...

Game 3 limerick

Passover seders are fun, but with an 18-month-old, you gotta keep it moving or you're asking for trouble. Uncle Marty did not keep things moving last night. I'd blame myself, but it's really more...

Game 2 limerick

There's been some debate about what we can expect from Billingsley, but no doubt about his performance last night. What a joy to see him have a great game. I think the book is still unwritten about...

Game 1 limerick

Let's try this again. I'll keep this going as long as I can... Missed most of yesterday's game (things still crazy on-and-off at work), but caught pieces here and there. Was surprised to hear...

I am moving the book discussion here, so that it's not lost. My choices: Best book I read this year: Possession by AS Byatt. Unless it was: True Grit by Charles Portis. Favorite book: Fifth...

LIMERICK 33

I was gonna work out something about Pridie/pretty/shitty, but I didn't have the heart.  Here's a fairly caustic limerick that  is maybe a little harsher than I really feel... maybe.  I dunno,...

LIMERICKS 27-32

Things have been super busy at work.  The quality of these limericks suffers.  These cover the Padres and Cubs series. I'm caught up for a few hours.   #27: DODGERS WIN!  PAY NO ATTENTION TO...

LIMERICKS 23-26

You'll have to forgive me if some of these are second rate.    #23 DODGERS DELIVER A SERIES WIN AGAINST THE CUBS Their gonfalon bubble was burst! Their goat is got! Ha, they are cursed! The D...

LIMERICK 22: WHY THE EIGHTH INNING WENT SOUTH REALLY FAST

Oh come on.  I turn off the game when it's 7-5, I turn it back on and they've scored another but blown it?   Tough loss, but whatcha gonna do.  Guerrier has pitched well so far.  Not so well...

LIMERICK 21: THE DODGERS' APOLOGY

What more could I have wanted from today?  I had the day off, I had nothing to do, I had a great lunch with Dave and BH, and the Dodgers won in a blowout.  Good Friday?  Great Friday, I says. N...

LIMERICKS 14 THROUGH 20

Here are seven limericks, which cover everything I've missed to date: the two Cardinal blowouts, Bison Bomb #1, Jerry Sands' debut, the ninth inning meltdown, Garland's CG, and Bison Bomb #2.   #...

LIMERICK 13/162: THE VOICE OF NEGATIVE REASON PLEADS FOR CALM

It's an old adage that if you expect the worst, you can only be surprised and pleased by good news.  And I suppose that's the attitude I've brought to this season, but the thing is, despite the...

LIMERICK 12/162: AFTER LAST NIGHT IT IS CLEAR THAT ONE DODGER SHOULD NOT GO TO CHICAGO IN MAY

It's funny, the feeling of watching a ballgame.  Two nights ago, against Lincecum, I felt like the Dodgers had it locked up against Lincecum, but it didn't work out, and I was pissed.  Last...

LIMERICK 11/162: SUCK IT, TJ

Wish we'd had a better result.  You get three runs off Lincecum with Billingsley on the mound and that one should be in the bag.  Sigh.  Whatcha gonna do.  That's gonna happen.  I considered...

LIMERICK 10/162: I CAN'T HELP BUT NOTICE THAT FURCAL'S INJURY TOOK PLACE IN ERROR-PRONE SAN FRANCISCO

For a team that needed everything to go right -- and I know this was not a point of universal agreement -- Furcal breaking his thumb before Tax Day is not good.  I mean... everybody knew Furcal...

LIMERICKS 8 & 9 / 162

I missed all play on Saturday, both the end of the suspended game and the scheduled game.  I did get to listen to most of Sunday's game.  IN WHICH I STRUGGLE, AND FAIL, TO WRITE A SUITABLE...

LIMERICK 7/162: THE SUSPECT SUSPENSION

I went to bed at 11-something, thinking for sure the game would be suspended at that time.  How foolish I was.  The fact that they couldn't finish it up even after 1 am is the pits.  Oh well, at...

LIMERICK 6/162: NED COLLETTI OVERREACTS TO BILLINGSLEY'S START

This wasn't what I was promised!  The literature clearly stated the pitching would be awesome and they'd have trouble scoring runs!  What a frustrating game, only to surpass all of its...

LIMERICK 5/162: TIME OF PLAY, 2:19

What are the chances that, come the end of the year, Kershaw will deserve the Cy Young, but will not get the award due to historically bad run  support?  I dunno, maybe I'm wrong.  Not about...

LIMERICK 4/162: AND AUBREY IS A GIRL'S NAME; OR, I DIDN'T TAKE THE TIME TO COME UP WITH A CLEVER RHYME FOR "TEJADA"

That was a fun game, once we were settled.  Did 50,000 people really want that freakin' ugly Dodger snuggie?  I missed the excitement of the first inning, and I was impressed by Kuroda mowing...

LIMERICK 3/162: IN WHICH TED LILLY FAILS TO LIVE UP TO A FAMOUS QUOTE BY HIS NAMESAKE

I missed just about all of today's game.  Sounds like I missed nothing good.  It's behind us, and good riddance.  I will be at the stadium tomorrow and bringing just about everybody who is...

LIMERICK #2: THE SECOND RUN OF THE SIXTH INNING

What a fun win tonight.  Made us sweat a bit but that's OK. Too bad about Belt but if he is as good as we are hearing, well, good players will do that.  I have not been a believer in Hector...

Limerick 1/162(+): OH WAIT I FORGOT ABOUT KERSHAW

I plan to write one poem for each game the Dodgers play this year.  These will be mostly limericks, but who knows?  You may find yourself with a double dactyl.  These words exist to get me up to...

Are the Dodgers going to be better or worse?

Posnanski: http://joeposnanski.com/JoeBlog/2010/06/21/the-five-run-system/#more-3646 The Los Angeles Dodgers (25-11) have been dreadful in five run games but they are playing well enough in the...
