Sox-Yanks haiku
By MIKE MILIARD  |  April 27, 2006

Back by popular demand! Just in time for the first series of the season on Monday, here’s another installment of Red Sox–Yankees haiku. (And if you think you can do better, Basho, submit your own, below.)

Papelbon’s brought in
Reads Last of the Mohicans
And goes down swinging.

Giambi homers!
When do they start testing for
Human growth hormone?

In New York City,
Johnny Damon is
Just another caveman face.

Mystique and aura
Will not keep the Big Unit’s
Knees from falling off.

“Enter Sandman,” huh?
Wagner stole Mo’s little song?
How about “My Humps”?

$21 million?
For Jaret Wright? Jaret Wright?!
That is too funny.

Who’s unsexier?
Unit or Gilbert Gottfried?
Someone should rank them.

A 9-8 record
And Miguel Cairo at first?
You can do better.

Alex Rodriguez?
He will homer in the clutch.
Someday. He has to.

Weekend at Bernie’s
Was apparently inspired
By Bernie Williams.
