It seemed like a good idea, so I thought I'd take a quick stab at it. I can't say I put in quite the effort as The Common Man, though. He actually spent the time to write in different poetic styles, and he's a much better man than I am for doing so. I, instead, threw together a few quick haikus that kind of show where I am regarding this upcoming baseball season - I'm just ready for it to start already.
"Dreaming since year's end.or, how about:
Spring training's finally here.
Time to play some ball!"
"There's no more excuseOne more?:
to say 'Just wait til next year!'
That's right: next year's here."
"Visions of summerNow let's see what everyone else has...
arrive when I hear "Pitchers
and catchers report."
Warm sun; soft, wet grass.
Bats crack, fans roar, beer pours. Don't
forget the hot dogs!
The warmth permeates.
It can't get here fast enough -
It's still so damn cold!"
