Oh, the pain! The haiku came fast and furious.

Pedro in the eighth?
Grady seems unimpressed when
I shoot my TV.

February dreams,
Flying from sunshine to fens,
Wild men rise again.

Boone hits big home run.

Up, out, and over
Yankee'd cork flies gladly crushed
Sox fall from its wake

Rocket hurls high, tight
Unscrew the dim bulb, Pedro
It's Don Zimmer's head

"From a grumpy traditionalist."

Nomar and Pedro,
Hoping they are back next year.
The same for Little?

Too Little, too late
Pedro leaves after fifth run
Season is over

Many years we wait
For The Babe's curse to expire
Only fifteen more

"Your website allows me to express my anguish through an ancient Japanese art-form. For that I thank you -- keep it up!"

Maybe if Manny
Is paid another ten mil
He'll drive in a run

23 October 2003

New York's private jet
Crashes in an inferno
I try not to smile

23 October 2003

Red Sox no defense
No pitching yet still the fans
bitching 'bout game 7.

Painted diamond vacant
Hearts soar only to break
Denied fall classic

Derek Jeter sucks
Jorge Posada sucks, too.
Aaron Boone sucks worst.

Red Sox means hard knocks.
Joe Torre just wants to win.
Boone: plays good defense.

"I thought I'd also write one that gave a little more hope but it didn't work out . . . maybe in the future."

Give him the ball -- No!
Eighty-six BoSox, again
Bambino's laughing

Film character said,
"There's no crying in baseball"
He was not a fan

23 October 2003

Just doing their job
I don't really mind the Yanks
Just the Yankees fans

23 October 2003

Why not Cubs and Sox?
Wrigley, Fenway, Pedro, Wood --
Spiteful baseball gods.

23 October 2003

Crush my heart again
Like a Bill Lee eephus pitch
To Tony Perez

"I've enjoyed your haiku page, and have recommended it to fellow mourners. Here are a few offerings:"

The Curse? Invented.
A bad decision, that's all.
Baseball Winter looms.

Tantalus. Red Sox.
Eighty-five years, still thirsty.
Do we need a straw?

On the radio:
"Grady patted Pedro's back."
We had heard the end.

My friends in New York
with malicious abandon
cry, "1918!"

Babe Ruth still looms large.

Why did Grady trust
Pedro to keep on pitching?
There's always next year.
