Post of the Week

"'Twas the night before playoffs, and on the South Side
The White Sox were winning; or die as they tried.
The bullpen was nestled all snug in left field,
As Man Soo Lee took his position and kneeled.

The bats were all stacked in the dugout with care,
In hopes that Konerko would hit one somewhere.
And Oz in his goatee and Coop in his cap
Were pacing the dugout and ready to snap.

When throughout the stands there arose such a cheer
That I sprang from my seat and knocked over my beer.
Away to the basepaths I focused my view,
And saw Scotty Pods sliding into base two!

Iguchi, impassive, stood fast at the plate,
Waiting for one he could hit hard and straight.
Tadahito connected; hit one off the wall,
To demonstrate how one should play Ozzieball.

With that RBI, it was all that was scored.
Eight innings were played with no one aboard.
Guillen had a decision he could not postpone:
Do I bring in Neal Cotts, or leave him alone?

A left-handed batter was waiting on deck;
But Guillen knew Cotts wasn't earning his check.
So he made a choice, if he swims or he sinks,
He's going to signal for Bad Bobby Jenks!

Jenks came in the eighth; an unlikely move.
But Ozzie just knew he had something to prove.
"ESPN doubts me, they've got lots of nerve.
But they've never tried to hit Jenks' nasty curve!"

Jenks spoke not a word but went straight to his work.
Threw superhot fastballs and drop-curves that jerk.
Then laying a finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, one last game did he close.

Ozzie sprang off the bench, to Ozney he clung,
And said, "Fung is in winning and winning is fung!"
And I heard him exclaim, as he hugged every player,
"I think what I'll do is start running for mayor!"

-- tebman's submission to a thread with White Sox poetry.

"Boy oh boy, what I wouldn't do right now for a plate of barbeque ribs and an ice-cold Falstaff."

-- Harry Caray doing the call from Comiskey's broadcast booth."

Let's Go Sox!
