Should have asked for winning in my prayer the other week;
When I told the sports gods that the only boon I'd seek
Was a starting record better than the year before
(And that wish was granted - barely - if you're keeping score).
Red Sox stand at 1 and 5. Last year? Naught and 6.
Thanks a lot there, sports gods. Now, could you guys, maybe, fix
Problems with the pitching for our Opener today?
Let the Red Sox win at home we, in the Nation, pray.
I can smell the popcorn and the sausages from here...
Please dear sports gods - give us Red Sox fans something to cheer.
Haven't I been good and true? A Faithful fan and daughter?
Let the stands of Fenway ring with strains of Dirty Water.
Good luck Josh Beckett!
Open in case of Victory.
