‚??Twas The Night Before XMAS In Red Sox Nation

I know that it is not Christmas Eve anymore, but still the holiday season. Sox1Fan.com is a die hard Red Sox fan who, in my opinion, is a really good poet as well. Let’s see if you agree.

‚??Twas the night before Christmas and throughout Red Sox Nation,
The fans of the team are filled with a-dor-a-tion‚?¶
After eighty-six years of coming up short,
The franchise is now a model for the sport‚?¶

The ownership‚??s committed to winning it all,
The front office builds teams to play deep into fall‚?¶
And soon we may get the Twins lefty ace,
Who could make it impossible for others to keep pace‚?¶

When out in free agency they faced a big bump,
Schill and Mighty Mike took less rather than jump‚?¶
And so the team that they‚??ll field as they try to repeat,
Will be nearly the same the others could not defeat‚?¶

Beckett and Schill and Dice-K and Santana (?),
Would be the best starting four from here to Montana‚?¶
And even if the trade doesn‚??t ever go through,
Wakefield and Lester and Buchholz will do‚?¶

The bullpen is solid from bottom to top,
Papelbon, our young closer, has got some great ‚??pop‚??‚?¶
The pitching is among the best in the game,
Leaving hitters often feeling inadequate and lame‚?¶

The offense is good and bound to improve,
Especially if Julio and JD find their groove‚?¶
Jacoby as a rookie was all the rage,
From the top of the order he will help set the stage

Manny and Papi are historically great,
Ortiz was brought here as if driven by fate‚?¶
Octagenarians are reminded of the days of their youth,
As the pair puts up numbers like Gehrig and Ruth,

We love our young guys like Dustin and Youk,
Next season they‚??ll prove 0-7 was no fluke‚?¶
‚??Tek needs to be strong throughout the whole year,
Mike Lowell will fill opposing pitchers with fear‚?¶

We won in 0-4 and again in 0-7,
So that being a fan is like being in heaven‚?¶
And as we look forward to two-thousand-eight,
We can‚??t help but think a repeat would be great‚?¶
