Game Haiku – 05/09/09 – Reds 8, Cardinals 3

If Lohse’s season
was a Bible book, it would
be the Book of Job

Game Haiku – 05/08/09 – Reds 6, Cardinals 4

Pineiro calms down,
but Cards can’t overcome his
gift of five quick runs

Game Haiku – 05/07/09 – Cardinals 5, Pirates 2

Cards hitting too much.
Now they get hit – by errant
pitches. Twice today. 

Game Haiku – 05/06/09 – Cardinals 4, Pirates 2

Chris Duncan kicks it
into high gear with triple,
powers big inning

Game Haiku – 05/05/09 – Phillies 10, Cardinals 7

Cards come up short in
slugfest. It sucks when seven
runs isn’t enough.

Game Haiku – 05/04/09 – Phillies 6, Cardinals 1

Ryan Howard must
like his mama’s cookin’. It
powered a grand slam.

Game Haiku – 05/02/09 – Nationals 6, Cardinals 1

I got it! I got
it! Whoops! Duncan drops pop foul,
opens door for Nats

I felt the earth move under my feet…

Whoa, it seems everything is conspiring to keep me from catching up on my game haikus. Here I am, writing haikus, and the building starts to shake.  My pictures start rattling against the wall.  My pendulum light fixtures sway.  The dog wakes up and barks.  The building creaks.  Yes, we’re having an earthquake.  And it wasn’t a tiny one – 5.0 and the epicenter just 6 miles from my condo.  No damage reported yet, but it did scare me a bit. And that’s the first one in my 6 years out here that did scare me.  Yes, it’s just the danger of living in LA…but then if I still lived in MO there’s a little fault out there too…

I recently went to the Egyptian Theater and saw “Earthquake” shown in sensurround.  I think I prefer the fictional experience.


Game Haiku – 05/01/09 – Cardinals 6, Nationals 2

Cards play long ball with
the Nats; Wellemeyer gets
a win for a change.

Game Haiku – 04/30/09 – Cardinals 9, Nationals 4

Boggs has quality
start. Cards abuse Nats bullpen
to claw out a win.
