"I hate Grady Little" is still a favorite, but many more write of hope with A-Rod and Schilling.

Pedro and Manny,
Too emotional for pros,
Bites you in the ass.

As much as Red Sox
deserve careful choice of words,
haiku shouldn't rhyme.

Curt Schilling is signed
We have triple-threat starters
Savior for '04

"Thanks for the relief of a broken heart. Next year is the year!"

From suffering -- art.
There is no Yankees' haiku.
Sox fans: I love you.

So funny, haiku!
Schilling, Schmilling: Sox fans' dreams.
But Babe's curse -- nightmare!

Venting with haiku
Therapeutic, but takes time
Must go watch Pats win.

Terry Francona?
What the fuck are they thinking?
He sucked with the Phils!

The same TV showed
Buckner, then Boone. It was time.
Smashed it with a bat.

"This is true. I took my TV set out on my deck and smashed it to bits after realizing that 17 years after sitting six inches from the TV screen in front of my cheap-ass K-Mart TV with my head in my hands (1986), I was doing THE SAME THING. It had to go."

Schilling the cure? No.
He and Pedro -- too fragile.
DL will be long.

Martinez, Schilling
Knuckleballs on wasted wood,

Schilling joins the staff
The last piece of the puzzle
Hope springs eternal.

"Written Monday December 1, 2003--Dawn of the New Era!"

Pedro starts the eighth;
Posada gets a double,
Grady Little, DIE!

A midnight dreary
Pedro so weak and weary
Bo Sox nevermore....

If Schilling willing
To accept second billing
Champagne be chilling.

Praying for Sox/Cubs,
an unfunny thing happened.

Welcome to Schilling,
Winner -- Will he lift Babe's Curse?
Hope A-Rod comes soon.

I said Sox will win
Mean Uncle Billy, Yank fan,
claims curse now my fault!

"SBYF--surrounded by Yankee fans."

Bleachers Yankee fans
Squealing of 1918
Push them off next year

Red Sox fall collapse
Without it the planet might
Stop spinning, explode

"From an a's fan, sorry. (But hey, Sox fans, the '04 team's looking pretty solid. And at least you're not the Yankees.)"

It is genetic
This insane love for the Sox
My son now hates me

"Go Sox" on the Pru
Lights up the Boston night sky
A vertical prayer

3 December 2003

The days grow shorter
Months named for Latin numbers
Sox go home again

is not just impossible;
you've got to have wa.
