Yankees host the Red Sox in their Opener today.
I am always trepidatious when these 2 teams play,
But this day is special 'cause it falls on April 1st,
Meaning that the sports gods may decide to do their worst.
April Fool's Day pranks can be amusing; sometimes, not.
If the joke is on New York then Boston has a shot.
In a normal Opener the home team, mostly, wins;
Baseball fans read omens from the way their team begins.
But, because it's April Fools, the sports gods may decide
They will intervene by helping out the other side.
In this case that side is mine. I've got my fingers crossed
That tomorrow's headlines read; The New York Yankees lost.
