Finish The Limerick

Unlike previous Finish the Limericks, this time we're backing off the micro-managing and letting you come up with four of the five lines. You know the drill:

It's 3 months 'til Opening Day,

It's 3 months 'til Opening Day,
I'm pulling for Blue all the way,
McCourt's are divorcing,
Which means they'll be forcing,
True fans (through the nose) to pay!

Neeebs said...

My favorite SOSG Shennanigan.


It's 3 months 'til Opening Day,
And the McCourts still have a say.
No left fielder to keep pace,
And a Big ? at 3d base.
Maybe we should send for Ron Cey.

It's 3 months 'til Opening Day,
We need things to pass time away;
     Anteaters and A-Rods,
     the NFL playoffs,
^Examples from the past few days.

Eric Karros said...

oops bad "A-Rods" link above ^ but too much work to correct...

It's 3 months 'til Opening Day
It doesn't seem that far away
When there's baseball again
I we're lucky, by then
we'll have solved this damn P&A

Dodger Mom said...

It's 3 months 'til Opening Day
While I want to shout "Hooray"
I still worry a bit
About their lack of pitch
But I will still root for them all the way!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

It's 3 months 'til Opening Day,
And Frank appears here to stay,
at least for right now
unless Judge Gordon can vow
that Jamie has full rights and sway

Fernie V said...

It's 3 months til opening day
Can't wait to whip the team by the bay
It will be nice to hear ESPN with no Morgan
Hopefully we won't need a mulligan
I can't wait to hear "We Love L.A."

Josh S. said...

It's 3 months 'til Opening Day,
Uncle Ned has been spending away;
But none of that cash,
Went to one who can mash,
Can pitching alone win the day?

QuadSevens said...

It's 3 months 'til Opening Day,
I'm saving my blue Chimay;
Until finally I see,
Our Dodgers on tv,
Beating those guys from the bay!

Jason said...

It's 3 months 'til Opening Day,
the umpire yells "time with balls to play";
We can't way to hear Vin call,
"It's time for Dodger Baseball,"
and on his couch is where Dusty will lay!

Dusty Baker said...

It's 3 months 'til Opening Day,
When surely our starter will be Clay.
At center will be Kemp.
Oy! In left field, The Gimp?
At least Sherrill didn't stay!

Dusty Baker said...

It's 3 months 'til Opening Day
Though the start time has been delayed
In Rod we will trust
And hope Lilly isn't a bust
By then will we have traded Loney away?

Dusty Baker said...

It's 3 months 'til Opening Day;
With Rihanna now out of the way.
Will Blake show up with a beard?
Will Broxton once again be feared?
Hope we're not out of it by May.

Josh S. said...

@Dusty: The start time is 20 hours earlier!

Dusty Baker said...

It's 3 months 'til Opening Day,
And so many questions in play
Will Timmeh wash his hair?
Does Brox have a pair?
And can Furcal still beat the relay?

Dusty Baker said...

I meant it's not a 1:10 start but a 5:00 start...regardless of what day it's on.

Dusty Baker said...

It's 3 months 'til Opening Day,
Hey look - we picked up Uribe
Mattingly's studying the rules
So we won't look like fools
Fuck you Shane Victorino!

Jason said...

It's 3 months 'til Opening Day,
and vindication on the odds I'm going to lay;
Philly's pitching will get old fast,
the Gnat's luck will not last.
And I concur, fuck you Shane Victorino (ay)!

Eric Karros said...

It's 3 months til opening day,
That's 2,000 hours away,
     If every five minutes,
     DB has a new limerick,
By then this thread might pass Smonkstakes!

Dusty Baker said...

Hey! I saw that, EK.

Spank said...

And the winner is...

It's 3 months 'til Opening Day
Garvey,Lopes.....Russell and Cey
Kershaw will bend the big curve
Spank will drink Steel Reserve
We will all end in shock and dismay!

Dusty Baker said...

It's 3 months 'til Opening Day
Already some lip from EK
Sax posts great insight
Orel gets his shit right
But Lasorda should die, we all say

Dusty Baker said...

I like your working in Steel Reserve there, Spank. Nice touch!

Spank said...

Thanks,DB(Dusty Baker). My last 40oz.(40 ounce bottle of booze) is warm like caldo(soup) now and I'm walking around with one chankla(sandal) on.It's freakin' cold out(outside) and I'm about to go to sleep(pass out) in the park with the neighborhood mutts(mutts).period

Spank said...

^ That is not a "limerick" but a true fact

Spank said...

CIAO!

Dusty Baker said...

So sayeth Spank Dog.

Eric Karros said...

DB, I was giving you props for your prolificity. Here's more props:

It's 3 months 'til Opening Day,
And Dusty fills his dossier;
     But Greg and Mr F,
     plus MLASF,
Keep Smonk 3,000 comments away!

Dusty Baker said...

I know man...just having fun bustin' on you. You have to give me that "It's 3 months 'til Opening Day/Already some lip from EK" is an instant classic line.

Dusty Baker said...

Hat tip:

I had a particularly shitty day at work today, even by the generally shittastic standards of a regular day in the life of someone who has to deal with internal government bureaucracies as well as the state and federal elected branches of government, bookended by some continuing bad health news regarding not one but two of my immediate family members, but by re-reading this limerick thread tonight, I was made to laugh til I almost (cried) and to really feel like there is a light at the end of the tunnel, or if there isn't, then at least I will be entertained along the way.

I was also reminded that I am capable of composing very long sentences.

So to the SoSG Family*, I just wanted to say thanks for continuing to provide such an informative and entertaining domain for all of us knuckleheads.

Dusty out.

*Except Lasorda. Die, Lasorda, die!

Dusty Baker said...

One last little limerick:

It's 3 months 'til Opening Day;
I can't wait for the Dodgers to play
The team we all hateHateHATE
Who, though they've been successful of late
Are all sippers of cheap chardonnay

Spank said...

Hang Tough,holmes.

Eric Karros said...

One last one for DB to help get him through the day*:

It's 3 months 'til Opening Day,
And Dusty has had a bad day,
   Even the best have bad days,
   (Including Roy Halladay),
So cheer up with this pic of Sue Dey!

*"day" being the operative word
