The announcer for the opposition
is so one sided in his comment
so unabashedly partisan
for throwing off a pissed off post
He compares him to the Yankees’ Phil Rizzuto
but without Phil’s endearing qualities
that made him perfect for the role
by Private Maggio in From Here To Eternity.
But I’m not posting the pissed off post
when I find out that the guy has run away
a hell of a medical ordeal.
Instead, I choose to develop imagination
that Frank Sinatra played shortstop
for the world champion Yankees.
