    I've been writing a Haiku for every Detroit Tigers game this season. It's hard because Maglio Ordonez is hard to fit in any line.

    How I miss Khartoum.
    His humor, wit a true loss
    Returns bring smi-uhls.

    The Tigers start slow
    Fuck Magglio Ordonez
    The Mets blow bigger balls (miss you Drogo...)

    It happens sometimes
    Best laid plans, and all that stuff
    Horse head appreciates

    Speaking of requiem:


    No one gives a shit
    About your fantasy team
    You fucking dickhead

    Dear spnited
    Would slam us for this tribute
    You're still missed, Drogo

    (Edit: Assuming "S-P-nite-ed" is four syllables ... hence frequent shortening to S-P ... )

    To our friend Khartoum
    Who would critique our haikus
    Don't be a stranger
