Nationals @ Mets, Game 3

Nationals at Mets, Game 3
Sunday, April 23 | 8:05 p.m. in Her Majestie Queene Elizabeths Colonies
TV/Radio: did not exist in the 1500s



Mr. William Shakespeare, His Birthday Threadde.

  GUIDERIUS. Fear no more the heat o' th' sun
               Nor the furious winter's rages;
             Thou thy worldly task hast done,
               Home art gone, and ta'en thy wages.
             Golden lads and girls all must,
             As chimney-SWEEPers, come to dust.

-

HAMLET. Haste me to know't, that I, with wings as swift
    As meditation or the thoughts of love,
    May SWEEP to my revenge.

-

HAMLET. Ham. There's letters seal'd; and my two schoolfellows,
    Whom I will trust as I will adders fang'd,
    They bear the mandate; they must SWEEP my way
    And marshal me to knavery.

-

   Now will I dam up this thy yawning mouth
    For swallowing the treasure of the realm.
    Thy lips, that kiss'd the Queen, shall SWEEP the ground;
    And thou that smil'dst at good Duke Humphrey's death
    Against the senseless winds shalt grin in vain,
    Who in contempt shall hiss at thee again

-

  MACBETH. Both of you
    Know Banquo was your enemy.
  BOTH MURTHERERS. True, my lord.
  MACBETH. So is he mine, and in such bloody distance
    That every minute of his being thrusts
    Against my near'st of life; and though I could
    With barefaced power SWEEP him from my sight

The Duke of MAXWELL, his eye-balls diff'rently hue'd,
Foes 'cross the league his fastball hath subdued



Once young, full of promise, this WHEELER was
Time and health do for us all, fair coz

Unnatural genius, orbs crush'd oer yon walls
Such tidings we are brought, of young BRYCE
Couldst he place Washington in Cooper's Towne halls?
We would fain know - but, at what price?

HAMLET.

To sweep or not to sweep, that is the question.  :bow:

Once more unto the bench, dear friends, once more;
Or close the bases up with our DC red.
In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility:
But when the blast of "PLAY BALL!" blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favour'd rage;
Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;
Let pry through the portage of the head
Like the Louisville Slugger; let the brow o'erwhelm it
As fearfully as doth a galled rock
O'erhang and jutty his confounded base,
Swill'd with the wild and wasteful ocean.
Now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide,
Hold hard the breath and bend up every spirit
To his full height. On, on, you noblest Nationals.
Whose blood is fet from fathers of ball-proof!
Fathers that, like so many Zimmermans,
Have in these parts from morn till even fought
And flipped their bats for lack of argument:
Dishonour not your mothers; now attest
That those whom you call'd fathers did beget you.
Be copy now to men of grosser blood,
And teach them how to play. And you, good yeoman,
Whose limbs are coached in Washington, show us here
The mettle of your pasture; let us swear
That you are worth your breeding; which I doubt not;
For there is none of you so mean and base,
That hath not noble lustre in your eyes.
I see you stand like greyhounds in the infield,
Straining upon the diamond. The game's afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry 'God for Teddy, DC, and Nats' Park!



My house is about half a mile from Holy Trinity where Shakespeare is buried. I feel obliged to post. But will be long abed before first pitch!

Calendar: on this day in 1919, Walter Johnson pitched his fifth Opening Day shutout, beating the Philadelphia A's 1 - 0 in 13 innings.

Attendance: 13,000, which was a lot for Griffith Stadium.

With the Argonauts didst young JAYSON sail,
Promisèd rings and ducats one hundred twentysix,
Now his wizened hirsute visage tells his tale
Pursuing glory ere he sails the river Styx

Even in the days of the Bard, York was not New. 

But Theodoric ran a heck of a barbershop back then.
