The World Series of Shakespeare

Loyal readers know that your Shakespeare Geek is born and raised in Massachusetts, which makes me a lifelong Red Sox fan.  Baseball changed forever for us in the 2004 World Series when we broke the curse by shutting out the Cardinals 4-0.

Speaking of the Cardinals....(oh, that was a cheap shot over the bow and I'm not ashamed of it) happens to pass that our pal Bardfilm is a Cardinals fan!  And lo and behold look who has made it back to the World Series this year.

A wager!  There must be a wager!

There is.  And here it is: The loser has to write and post an original sonnet on his blog, praising the other team.  So should the Cardinals win, I would have to pen a sonnet singing their praises (what rhymes with grumble?)  And, when the Red Sox win, Bardfilm will need to join the choirs that already sing our many praises.  I hope he doesn't think he can plagiarize one of the songs already sung about our hometown heroes, as I will be checking.


Play ball!

Meanwhile, I'm looking for rhymes for "scrod," "beans," "wicked," and "fake beards."

But I'm not working too hard on the rhymes. I don't suppose I'll be the one writing the sonnet!
