June Swoon

The scribes were wrong, all right? THEY WERE WRONG. Alert the media. What else is new? When were scribes right about anything? They're scribes, after all. Employed for their scribing abilities, not for their prognosticating.

The Loan Sharks have lost five (5) in a row. Swept in a doubleheader by the W'peckers. Humbled in a single game by Midway Rebellion. Swept out like yesterday's detritus in another doubleheader by Jah Energy. Jah Energy??? The Jah Energy with the pitcher with the bionic left knee?

Yes. That Jah Energy.

Mercifully, the Sharks' two games this week were cancelled by weather/carnival equipment on the field. Next games are a doubleheader June 30 vs. Ron's Auto.

It all feels like the Crimean War at this point. Totally pointless, and yet honor is involved somehow.

I was so upset by your post and reliving my days on the Crimean peninsula that I had to jot down a poem.

When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made!
All the world wonder'd.
Honour the charge they made!
Honour the Light Loan Sharks Brigade,
Noble 9 (or 10 with a rover)!

Alex, Lord Rex O'Herlihanson
