ever seen
a
team
fall apart
witnessed it yesterday
knew something was up
knew it just knew it
some dugout talk
shook em up
too many errors
fumbling
overthrows
missed pop ups
game not
on
felt for them
that gut wrenching
can’t do anything right
that
don’t hit or throw to me
I
suck
watching the other team
score and score
never ending succession of batters
big pow wow after the game
looked like a prayer meeting
at the third base line
kids faces in shock
what
is
up
pitcher catcher quit
both man what a blow
yeah they told us in the third
and I’m thinking
like it or not
these things happens
life
will
throw you a curve ball
change-up
you gotta just do the best you can
one of those things
can’t do anything about
things you can’t change
kinda makes you shake your head
kinda makes you fumble a bit
overthrow
miss a popup
stack up the errors
but the thing about the game is
you
gotta shake it off
just like life
get out there
and
do
the best you can

Life if like that exactly. Hope they snapped out of it. It is a
very bad scene to watch and you are helpless because you can't help them.
Good write..
