Inauguration Day

Today’s the big day

Barack Hussein Obama

Our new President

He’s from Chicago

But a fan of the White Sox

‘Cause he’s from Hyde Park

Which pol’s a Cubs fan?

(Soon to be former) Gov’ner

Rod Blagojevich

Blago is the curse!

First we impeach him, and then

Cubs make the Series.

Convention – Day 3

Best new player name?

Daytona’s Darwin Barney

The next Theriot?

Convention’s over

It’s time to start counting down

A month ’til Mesa

Convention – Day 2

Today’s fun surprise

Yosh Kawano spent two hours

Signing autographs

Met the Cubscast guys

And several listeners

‘Twas a nice visit

Thousands heard Big Z

Talk about his no hitter

And imitate Lou

Convention – Day 1

Milton Bradley got

A pretty good reception

From convention fans

I heard a few boos

For Hendry and Alfonso

Not a big surprise

But for Ron Santo

The ballroom erupted with

A chant: “Hall of Fame”

Milton Bradley?

You think Life‘s a game?

What our Operation needs

Are some switch hitters

So says Jim Hendry

But deciphering his plans?

A game of Twister

Will it all fit right?

Like using all of your tiles

While playing Scrabble

This ain’t Candyland

Or Hungry, Hungry Hippo

It’s Cubbie Baseball!

We’re all pretty tired

Of spending each October

Playing Parcheesi
