“Sonnet 13”

How do I love A-Rod? Let me count the ways.
I love A-Rod to the beauty of his swing and length of his home runs and pace of his trot around the bases
Even when I’m not at the Stadium or watching on TV
My feelings are big as Doug Eddings’ strike zone.
I love A-Rod during every single day game and at night, even if he goes 0-6 with four strikeouts
I love A-Rod freely, as others boo him vociferously
I love A-Rod purely, as others write vigorously, articles of his demise
I love A-Rod with the passion most have for their spouses or children
In my older, more wise age, and with the same faith as my 10 year old self.
I love A-Rod with a love I didn’t even know I had
With my lost family, friends and lovers. I love A-Rod with every breath,
every smile, every cry for his entire career even after his eventual retirement
I shall but love A-Rod better after baseball, when he’s broadcasting alongside Joe Buck on Fox.
