Huntsville's Wish List
No baseball was played, the lights were all dark.
A wishlist for oh-nine was asked for by Ben
Our hopes for a new stadium again?
Or better yet, a new scoreboard, with all whistles and bells
With more backlit signage, stuff a staff member sells.
A jumbotron larger than our wishes themselves
Delivered and installed by Santa's techno-elves.
Or maybe a better hot dog, this time with real meat
Instead of boiled pigs' lips and ground monkey feet.
An upgraded menu, get rid of the same
Will have Dad telling Mom, "Let's eat at the game."
A signature food item, a brat and a beer?
Will affect the attendance and will get 'em all here.
Stick to the sausage, forget tofu-n-shrimp skewers.
We're not a Cubs team, Hey!, we belong to the Brewers.
And glasses for umpires to make better calls
Or maybe some more signsage on concourse walls.
A championship trophy to hoist in the air?
Winning or losing, as long as it's fair.
How 'bout a fan base with a view just the same,
That cares less 'bout winning and more 'bout the game?
Or maybe our wishes are all out of line.
Let's just think about baseball in 2009.
So our wish 'tis really simple: to the game be true.
And know in our hearts that we'll never feel blue.
To all of the teams, just listen to reason,
Good luck in '09 and have a helluva season!
