Well, I have seen all of those Videos before but you have done a very beautiful thing by placing them all together. Love your last one by the way.
I guess you love baseball. I sure do as well.

Two out of four remaining -- functional videos, that is.
And that one of them is
Abbott and Costello "Who's On First" is endearing.

Refreshed from Red Sox Nation,
where they are all singing the praises of
Mookie Betts ... what a great moniker.

Baseball's Sad Lexicon

These are the saddest of possible words:
      “Tinker to Evers to Chance.”
Trio of bear cubs, and fleeter than birds,
      Tinker and Evers and Chance.
Ruthlessly pricking our gonfalon bubble,
      Making a Giant hit into a double—
Words that are heavy with nothing but trouble:
      “Tinker to Evers to Chance.”


Frank chance is on first, Johnny Evers is on second, Tinker is playing shortstop, and I Don’t Know is on third.

Baseball's Sad Lexicon
was authored by Franklin Pierce Adams in 1910
original title: "That Double Play Again," appeared in the New York Evening Mail.

AND:
one Chris McCaughan has SET IT TO MUSIC according to Wikipedia.
Chris McCaughan provided vocals and guitar for a musical group called
"The Lawrence Arms" in Chicago.
McCaughan's musical setting is not on a "Lawrence Arms" publication,
but from his album "We Chase the Waves" as part of Sundowner,
a group which includes a pedal steel guitar.

Here's a link to the song/recording.

Yes, F.P.A., very adroit of you^


A Ballad of Baseball Burdens

The burden of hard hitting. Slug away
      Like Honus Wagner or like Tyrus Cobb.
Else fandom shouteth: “Who said you could play?
      Back to the jasper league, you minor slob!”
      Swat, hit, connect, line out, get on the job.
Else you shall feel the brunt of fandom’s ire
      Biff, bang it, clout it, hit it on the knob—
This is the end of every fan’s desire.

The burden of good pitching. Curved or straight.
      Or in or out, or haply up or down,
To puzzle him that standeth by the plate,
      To lessen, so to speak, his bat-renoun:
      Like Christy Mathewson or Miner Brown,
So pitch that every man can but admire
      And offer you the freedom of the town—
This is the end of every fan’s desire.

The burden of loud cheering. O the sounds!
      The tumult and the shouting from the throats
Of forty thousand at the Polo Grounds
      Sitting, ay, standing sans their hats and coats.
      A mighty cheer that possibly denotes
That Cub or Pirate fat is in the fire;
      Or, as H. James would say, We’ve got their goats—
This is the end of every fan’s desire.

The burden of a pennant. O the hope,
      The tenuous hope, the hope that’s half a fear,
The lengthy season and the boundless dope,
      And the bromidic; “Wait until next year.”
      O dread disgrace of trailing in the rear,
O Piece of Bunting, flying high and higher
      That next October it shall flutter here:
This is the end of every fan’s desire.

ENVOY

Ah, Fans, let not the Quarry but the Chase
      Be that to which most fondly we aspire!
For us not Stake, but Game; not Goal, but Race—
      THIS is the end of every fan’s desire.


F.P.A.'s world, The Ten Year Lunch

keberoxu, that's a outstanding name, what's the meaning, please?

Thank computer programs for the combination of letters that is my member-name. "Keberoxu" in my case is a computer-program-generated password. All I did was click on a "generate password" square on the screen. If the word has a meaning, I am the last to know.

My "keberoxu" password will get you to my account with a library-oriented service which allows me to order, for a reasonable fee, a copy of something in a library collection, I'm not saying which service.
It's a very nerdy thing.
