The big game

"Oh, somewhere in this favored land
The sun is shining bright;
The band is playing somewhere,
And somewhere hearts are light,
And somewhere men are laughing,
And somewhere children shout;
But there is no joy in Mudville —
Mighty Casey has struck out."

This is perfect. The girls used to recite this entire poem (along with "The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere") at our annual Fourth of July party.
