Ode to sports: Lance to LeBron, Rodman to A-Rod

(Continued)

And Michael Wacha (now go figure that)

And David Ortiz with pop in his bat.

Come the World Series, time for instruction

In disentangling rules of obstruction.

Beards rise to high fashion, scruffy and long.

There’s no doubting these Red Sox — Boston Strong.

NFL coaches start dropping from stress.

The Dolphins’ locker room is one fine mess.

Jonathan Martin cites verbal abuse.

Says Incognito: Hey, just hangin’ loose.

But his slurs and threats offend most others

Not part of this muscled band of brothers.

It’s now six times Jimmie Johnson is champ.

Does this guy ever take the exit ramp?

A seismic Iron Bowl — Auburn prevails,

The finish best measured on Richter scales.

Then soon it’s quiet and we look about.

Where’s Mariano to close the year out?

So we can put this to rest, nice and clean.

There’s a big game coming: 2014.
