    I have a commonplace book full of ballades, ghazals, Anacreontics, acrostics, sonnet crowns, and several hundred cyhydded naw ban lines written for your coronation.

    Would you care to pick up where we left off last time, in our discussion of Skeltonics?

    By the way, I find the anodyne banality of your handle, "redsupport," to be the sine qua non of wit and understatement.

    well given the history of posting bowlderizing , the unexpurgated form of narrative having been negative requested ad infinitum, a more ph neutral conconction may be more palatable. What are your thoughts?

    oh yeah, freaking palate away, kids.

    i will translate for mysefl: oh dude your girl's hot who is she, she is sarah silverman, wow you must be smarter than me you say a lot more, liar liar pants on fire you've been talking your mouyth off, you making fun of me or do you really think i'm cute, no dude i really mean it i can back it up with fancy words, oh you flatter me you crazy, whoa you guys are smart, well we can speak in a differne language, sweet dude [then names I don't know except skeeter banres], by the way dude your name rocks, you're a funny dude with your all in-your-face "redsupport", well maybe since everybody likes the short talk i should make it easier to understnad. less understated. Or something.

    Now that took about seven whole minutes of work but I did enjoy your conversation. What I could understand of it.

    Anyway I'm sleepy and i'm going to bed, but I still am not convinced that joe mays is going to be pitching pretty good for pretty long.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I find your work to be akin to that of Andrew Marvell's in his splendid "Second Advice to a Painter for Drawing the History of our Naval Busynesse. In Imitation of Edmund Waller." Your mock-panegyrics of the Reds are the stuff of ubi-sunt verse.

    your prosody is sui generis,euphonic and mellifluous, why even the curmudgeon critic, former first rounder Pat Osburn has opined positively on the hexameter inherent in the brilliant verse

    by the way the devastatingly, didactic, discursive, doggerrel of Skelton leads me to query, why did the Tudor satirist prefer ben Hayes. Did he detect some irreverance in Hayes' flaunting of the convention of trying to retire batsmen?
