Half Done, All Star Break to come…..

Something a little different today, don’t laugh my rhyming sucks……


Some slumps, some bloops, the first half is done,

It ends on a Felix grand slam home run,

Some Phillies are resting, this may seem sweet,

With the past weekend of a Pirates sweep,

Time to relax, whether your Muts, Nats or even Cubies,

Off to St. Louis, where rivals become buddies,

Watchin’, the Derby can be slow, but painless,

Who will win, my guess, Howard or Carlos Pena,

The Rays give the infield a new AL spin,

The Phils have the outfield and we’ll get an NL win.


So ryhming is not my best feature, but it’s the All Star break, so have fun

    Very well done! What? No word that rhymed with Pujols? Seriously. I liked the line about rivals becoming buddies.

    Jane – I did have a line with Pujols in it, but had to remove it… just in case any underage fans are reading…:-)

    Matt – Sorry about that not much anyone can say to a Pirates fan at the moment, maybe the second half will be a better for you guys

    Thanks for the comment! I’m glad you appreciate that I changed my hair appointment :] I knew only here would I get the support I needed instead of the “you changed your hair appointment to watch WHAT?!” hehe :] .
    I am absolutely in love with your poem, how creative! …of course except I’m obligated to disagree with the last line :]

    Well, your lucky then. The Phillies won the 2008 World Series!
    I’m sure you are definetely not upset over them ever. Yeah, we say that a lot cause around here, that’s the only way to go! You just have to believe, I guess. & Yeah, I know. I got some F’s so I deserved to be grounded, if I’m gonna be honest 🙂 Hahaha!

    Alrighty, sounds like you are into the spirit of expecting a stronger second half from your team. If it works, I WILL be creating a poem that rhymes about the Rays with the hopes of turning around their fortunes too!

    What a mighty fine ode –
    poetic clause after clause –
    and if you listen now
    you will hear our applause.
