Twas the morning Before baseball

It was the morning before baseball, and all through the park not a creature was stirring, not even a lark the vendors placed beers in their coolers with care In hopes that all Cubs fans soon would be there! Ron Santo and Pat were all snug in the booth Ron fretted and squalled while Pat spoke all sooth And Al with his Big Gulp and Jessica too Had just sat in the bleachers (they could hear Ronnie Woo-Woo) When down in the grandstand there arose a great cheer And everyone stood, the 2010 Cubs team was here! And down on the street Ballhawk ran with a flash To catch the home runs that Lee, Rami and Byrd smashed! The logo was painted on the foul territory grass Shone red, blue and white, as opposing batters all passed As what to our wondering ears they did say But Man! Zambrano is pitching strong K after K. And a little old manager, so quiet and cool I knew in a moment this must be St. Lou! But swift to get angry at umpires’ wrong He’ll whistle and shout and sing them a foul song! "Now Riot! Now Marshall, Now Colvin and Rami!" "On Soto, On Dempster, On Dome and Nady!" "From the pitcher to the bat, over the bleachers now!" "It could go all the way! Home run! Holy Cow!" As the ivy that grows on the back outfield wall When the bats swing together, they hear the fan’s call So up the NLC standings, the players, they flew With a clubhouse full of veterans, and new bullpen kids too! And then as the singer sang the 7th inning stretch The fan cam catching girls for every boy and letch Larry came out to give Lilly the ball And somewhere, Molina heard a terrifying call They spoke not a word but went straight to work Pulling singles and doubles, oh the nay-sayers snerked! Beating Cardinals and Phillies and Marlins so hated Laughing at Pirates and Mets fans so bated They took to the basepaths and ran out the throws Even Soriano gave up his signature pose. And I heard Lou exclaim as they won the whole thing Hey Cubs fans! How about a nice World Series Ring!
