adrift in dreamland
sea air sooths scorched sun kissed-skin
deep in January
flax buns are cooking
winter food on winter stove
warm, waiting baseball
Better are “words”. Words you love or hate. Some site had a list recently. I think they were words to go away. It was an “epic” list….
Anyway, the thing about haiku, as everyone knows, is that you can use any words you like as long as you stick to the 5-7-5 format. It needn’t rhyme, it is best when it makes no sense at all, it is poetry for the lazy. In other other words, I’d be very good at it . But I’m too lazy for even that, so here’s “Haiku-o-Matic.”
I’m going with:
“i can’t think of five
nor can i think of seven
damn, i hate haiku ”
Go straight to Haiku-o-Matic here. You can even submit your own.
Here’s the calculator showing how much the middle class “tax cut” will cost you this year. I posted the link at Zeke’s Place but I thought if I put it right here, I could depress you in fewer mouse clicks. For example, if you are a pan handler declaring your true pre-tax income of 40,000.00, the “tax cut” will take 800 dollars out of your side jacket pocket ( that’s approximately 260 half pints of Taaka Vodka)…
Catchers and pitchers.
Buster, Hector, and who else?
I suppose that could be “Buster, Hector and–Susac?”
Baseball is the game
I will think ’bout in Thailand
While I am massaged ;-)
Hey Steve….WTF…your middle line has 8 syllables. (Like you give a rat’s ass, eh…) ;-)
Now it doesn’t. HEHEHE . . . Nevertheless, thank you for the Haiku lesson. :-)

And whither Eli?
I see that Sergio’s apology adhered strictly to the MLB approved generic apology for offenses deemed embarassing but not criminal in nature. For actual arrests Sergio’s comment would include ‘if/when I’m released from custody in (state or country)” and the team would issue a statement of support unless his 2012 ERA was 4-plus…
Here’s the generic apology. I tried it at home once and I still had to do the dishes for a month…
“( Player name here) released a statement through the (team name here), saying, “I would like to sincerely apologize about the recent events at (name of airport, nightclub, freeway exit, motel, or other), which brought negative attention to the organization and its fans. I love and respect the (team name), my teammates and our fans and promise to conduct myself in the future in the ( “Way” of the team indicated)”…
It must have taken something radically uncool for Sergio Romo to go off on sombody or bodies in the Vegas airport. The dude seems pretty peaceful. Some TSA agent must have demanded to frisk his beard…
I don’t give a flying fuck about Romo being detained at the LV airport. With the crimes committed by NFL players every week, it seems ludicrous to me to care even a little bit about Romo looking at a TSA agent the wrong way or whatever it was that he did. If he wasn’t arrested, it was NOTHING……
Totally true. Which is why his generic apology only rose to the “kinda embarassing” level.
Wet face skyward, exults
Capture a moment
Eli in the winter
Eli in the spring
Giants are better without him
To get another W/S ring
El Presidente must get tired of signing W-4s…
2 rings and Vera’s cooking…there are worse lives.
I shill for Schilling
Lincoln chafes and Jack unworthy
Hall of Fame for Curt
So it looks like Joe’s kid, Nick Montana, is transferring to Tulane next year. Go Wave!
Will he make it look easy in the Big Easy???
But this is so damned cool. Really, where else can you talk about your passion of Giants baseball, other sports, life, share haikus, etc.??? NO-FUCKING-WHERE.
Just another reason I love this site so much.
And…sharing all the above with all you guys and gal…it really is a special place. Thanks, Craig!
Now…get your haiku flappin’, MoFos…
busy day today
dreaming of baseball in spring
crack of ball off bat
Bengie’s big titties
Jiggling toward first
His man-bra is slipping
As he stumbles in the dirt.
Tuesday come soon please
Lay sight on the great trophy
Giants World Champions
too much Haiku talk
not enough Baseball blogging
In my opinion
Fuck, that was awesome Kevin . . . Good one. LOL.
Haiku rocks! Great way to stoke the hot stove when news is slow…

Pre-order One Common Goal by January 8th and get one of the first copies available!
I shared this some time ago, too. I ordered two (one for my daughter and one for me) a couple of weeks ago.
Pawlie – yeah…for a true Giants fan (and we know you are one)…I think it is a MUST HAVE….
I also think tickets for spring training should be available now. Scottsdale sells out of the good seats quick. You can get grass area (bleacher seats without the bleacher) but the view is distant.
Tickets for the Giants 2013 Spring Training HOME games go on sale Thursday, January 10th at 10a.m. PT / 11a.m. MT on sfgiants.com.
Yes, I forgot to put that out here, I received an email from the Giants site telling me about this.
Yep…I will be hovered over my computer, ready to pounce. My daughter and I have our airfare and hotel lined-up…just need the tix, now. When we last went (2010), I was ready promptly when the tix went on sale. I landed tickets for one of the three games I had targeted, and had to score tix for the other two via StubHub. I will NOT skimp this year…and even if I get bent over the barrel on StubHub, I WILL land killer seats for all three games. Can’t wait to smell the fresh cut grass, the aroma of hot dogs, and hear the crack of the bat and a ball pounding into a glove…
now = a few days
but you all knew that
Yawn…..when’s spring training?
When Gaudin and Quiroz report you know it’s time for some baseball…
I am at an excellent local place called Roji Tea Lounge, so a haiku is entirely apt. Here goes:
Cheshire smile wisdom
Lineups, switches, walks to mound
Buddha Bruce Bochy
I wrote a similar “portrait” of The Skipper in my brand-new book, ROUNDING THIRD: ZEN. BASEBALL. POEMS, but not a haiku.
I’m not certain with whom here (Zumiee???) I was discussing DeMarcus Cousins, who got benched recently. Fast forward since he got back, he has approx. 36-40 rebounds and about 50 points in his last two games. Crossing my fingers that he can keep it up for the rest of the season.
Cousins is an animal…easily one of the best centers in the game today.He just needs to learn how to control his emotions…if he can do that…the sky is the limit. I think he would look great in a Ws uni…
Yeah, he was a monster tonight, with 30 points and 20 rebounds. Three suspensions though thus far this year.
I love the haikus, I just can’t do them. You guys are all great. I’m reduced to stealing bad ones so anyone will believe they might be mine
“Haiku’s are easy,
but they don’t always make sense.
For something even more loathsome than bad haiku, here’s the Brady Bunch doing their very own cover of Don McClean’s American Pie.
I would say thanks, but I missed the bradys the first time around and I am not going to start now.
Marcia could shine a mean helmet…

I’ve been in the “keep Pablo” camp, still am. Reading about Pablo “touring” Boston, smiles all around, a courtship underway, kind of feels like a recently-former girlfriend (or, worse, a current girlfriend) out strutting her stuff, looking for a better suitor. Hurts a little. Ok, I’m a softy. Pablo is loving the attention…. but as Craig has said here, he likely realizes he’s gotten a lot of very positive attention here that he will not get in Beantown if he has prolonged slumps, as he is wont to do. His agent says: “The good part of this is he’s got a chance to… see who can really appreciate him and his work.” See who can really appreciate him and his work? Fuck you, asshole agent. I hate agents. Their interest is not always in the best interest of the players. Obviously. Unless you’re Stanton or Russell Martin. Or… Rowand or Zito… uh, nevermind….
