This is a very simple game.
You throw the ball,
you catch the ball,
you hit the ball.
Sometimes you win,
sometimes you lose,
sometimes it rains.

–Trey Wilson as “Skip” in Bull Durham

Of course it is never simple
because of the hanging curve
missing on a swing for the fences
bad hop past an infielder

Ain’t that easy anyone will
tell you even though they groan
or boo when it happens, and
happens it does – often

Now LaLoosh, he could tell you
it wasn’t easy like hitting the batter
or the mascot or the announcer
until he learned how to throw it

He learned it all—the hard way
but he learned and made the show
which let Crash finally get into Annie’s
panties, the ones she used to train LaLoosh
