Game Haiku – 04/17/09 – Cubs 8, Cardinals 7

I listened to this
game driving to Coachella
up and down, up, down

Best in Baseball!

The Cards closed April with the best record in the league. Today, they beat the Nats to bring their record to 17-7.  The Cards broadcasters said this was the team’s best start since 1944.  Whoa!  The team is really firing on all cylinders and has been a lot of fun to watch. 

I’ll admit it’s just May 1 and I’m already way behind on my haiku. But I’m committing to write a haiku about each game this season so I will diligently go back through the game recaps and write haikus until I catch up.  Then the haikus will get better, I promise, because they’ll be of the moment. 

I signed up for MLB TV this year instead of the cable package but I’ll admit I’ve barely used it. I find I’m in my car during a lot of the games, so I am loving the MLB iphone app.  I get to listen to the Cards’ broadcasts on KTRS for every game.  This is only $9.99 for the season. Occasionally, it cuts out, but overall it’s been great. Highly recommended for iphone users. 

Go Cards! Keep up the great teamwork!
