A Brief Dispatch From the Ballpark

By S. Deaver

Last night we saw these guys play those guys in the sport of baseball. I consider myself a pretty big fan of these guys. I mean, these guys are the guys I want to see win. Those guys can choke on a breaking ball for all I care.

Those guys kept it close, but the outcome was never really in doubt. These guys repeatedly boomed the homers at just the right time. Especially this guy. This guy is the guy that makes everyone love these guys.

We all did the classic cheers, like "Here we go, these guys, here we go (clap, clap)" and "Na na na na na na...hey, hey , hey...these guys" and these guys must have heard us and gotten so pumped up because they boomed so many homers.

These guys!
