We stay angry at Grady Little, we're happy the Yanks lost, we start thinking a little bit about the future.

Grady Little gone.
But clubhouse needs makeover.
Trade Manny for Vlad.

You know for yourselves the pain
Of what might have been.

Pinstriped men jump up
and shout on TV. On the
couch my stomach hurts.

Yanks fizzle, led by Jeter.
Money can't buy rings.
Little: afterthought.

Yanks squished by the Fish
A surprise for the ages
A smile to my face

"I felt just a little bit better on Saturday night. It might be a bit of schadenfreude, but at least Yankee fans know a fraction of our pain!"

Die hard Red Sox fan
At least the Yanks lost in six
Next year without Little?

Why, Grady? Why did
You not go to Embree one
Batter earlier?

Dusty and Grady.
Two men who don't know that a
Pitch count can save jobs.

Pedro cruising but
Babe awakes and punishes
For ass-pitch comment.

Twin curses of Cubs
And Sox still alive after

"Didn't know you had a website until I saw it mentioned in Sports Illustrated. Below are several I composed in the aftermath of Game 7."

To be a Sox fan
There are few happy moments
'cept when Yankees lose.

Boston lost again.
A yearly phenomenon.
Cubs fans can relate.

No Little league in
The Bigs: We care too much and
Pay too much for that!

Too Little, too late, too

Could Burkett play for Red Sox?

Grady's not to blame
Best hitters but no bullpen
Theo's got some work

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha
Yankees lost to stupid fish
Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha

28 October 2003

Every year the same,
We shoot ourselves in the foot.
Grady? Pedro? all.

28 October 2003

Jorge kills us, then
Jorge makes the final out.
How does that feel, Yank?

28 October 2003

Never past seven
Even you know that, Grady
How could you forget?

"Written after Game 7"

Say Goodbye Grady
Thanks for all the memories
To wrap broken hearts.
