While I have to admit I’ve never been too good at haiku writing, the option of having one run on the DC Sports Bog in honor of Stephen Strasburg’s debut tomorrow is a darn good selling point to get me to try and write one.
I’ll spare you all my horrid attempts at turning this baseball moment into poetry gold, but I urge you to get involved and join in the fun!
The Post’s Dan Steinberg announced the haiku contest this morning and hopes you’ll all get involved in Strasburg-mania.
First place gets “the best bit of memorbilia [Dan Steinberg] can muster on Tuesday night, which probably means a slightly wrinkled game-day program and Nats Park quote sheets.” Runners-up will receive “the maximum fame and admiration that anonymous Post commenters can provide.”
