With the season starting, it's become clear that people are ready to wax poetic about baseball again. A slew of limericks already erupted in the Day Thread, and that got me thinking...
We've seen our share of incredible limericks on this site. Grant has even devoted entire threads to them, but it's not clear to me that we've ever had an actual competition. The reward for winning? McCoveyBucks or something. I won't ban you, maybe. A head start on most amusing for this calendar year. Maybe two or three of those things!
So here's what I have in mind: For a few Mondays in a row, I'll start a new limericks thread with a new theme. The top so and so many limericks from each thread will then go head to head in a knock down, drag out limerick tourney. Limericks qualify for the tourney by earning recs. So give us your best, and rec the rest.
This week's theme: The Dodgers
I'll try to find all the ones that have already shown up in the regular thread and x-post them here, giving credit to their writers. If I miss any, hey, help a guy out.
This should be fun.
