Reds vs Dodgers–August 22, 2016

Final game of four between the Reds (53-61) and the Dodgers (68-55.) We win this one, we take the series, and our dizzying surge from 5th place into 4th continues.

YESTERDAY 

That was some good times, you guys.

A THING FROM TWITTER

Today’s Thing From Twitter comes courtesy of Poetweet, which reads every single thing you’ve ever tweeted and makes it a poem.  Here’s mine, which frankly makes far more sense than poem I’ve ever suffered through in any literature course (and, as an English major, there were A LOT of those.)

The Border
by Mary Beth Ellis

Gentlemen.
Remains of at least two umpires
In a single episode of “Mad Men.”
All Non-Dignified Pleasures

Nowhere in the parking lot.
Big enough to force this event.
Don’t want to be an airline pilot,
As a Reds fan at the moment.

Unfolding of what’s already there.
Mood. These cannot be unrelated.
I want to know what happened here.
Voyage Has Astronaut Excited
SPLICES COMMA SPLICES EVERYWHERE

You know what, we need to see what would happen if we fed it Jose Canseco’s Twitter account. Although that might be unnecessary, as it’s high art all by itself.

  1. Jumbo and Wood tried to keep it close, but seven homeruns by L.A. is tough to overcome.

  2. The Rams just tacked on the extra point to extend their lead over the Bengals, 17-7.

  3. I apologize, everyone. I have read none of the previous comments.

    So this is a repeat, I apologize.

    I apologize.

    Only two more men have to get on base for Joey to get a chance to hit for the cycle in the ninth.
