Foul Territory

I do not care for RFK Stadium, its short-term tenants, its deceptive power alleys, its resident closer, its proximity to potentially devastating news, its vast acreage from foul line to stands, its weird whammy on visiting baserunners, its Friday night blight on the Mets.

I do not like the Nationals in their house.

I do not like the Nationals with a mouse.

I do not like the Nationals here or there.

I do not like the Nationals anywhere.

I do not like RFK Stadi-am.

I do not like losing 4-3, disgusted I am.

    how about we make up a rhyme about the mets not getting any HITS against the NATIONALS, and continuing to strand runners on base?!?!?!
    i'm so angry i can't rhyme. and i can rhyme green eggs and ham on command.

    Leaving runners stranded in scoring position
    Has become an unfortunate New York tradition
    What ho! A baserunner poised upon third
    Jose or Oliver, your loins you should gird
    Hey! Over there, is a Met perched on second
    Sadly our bats have proved less than fecund
    I know it's but April, not to sound irrational
    But I don't want to lose anymore to these stinking damn Nationals
    A fine game today from our friend Tommy Glavine
    A few timely hits, celebratory beers we'll be havin'
