A poem for the Reds before tonight’s National League Wildcard Playoff.

In case you weren’t aware, my Cincinnati Reds face off against the Pittsburgh Pirates tonight in a one-game playoff of the NL Wildcard teams. The winner advances to the National League Divisional Series to face the St. Louis Cardinals. In honor of tonight’s game, then, I figured we could use a little poem. And what better piece of verse to adapt for the occasion than the Lore of the One Ring, from J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings?

One Game at the start of Fall, One Game to try them
One Game to claim the prize, and in the DS find them.
In the Land of Pittsburgh, where the Wildcard lies.

Today, I think that’s going to do it for me.  Well, that and…

Go Reds!
