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)…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.
