No Joy in Mudville…Erh, I Mean Lewisburg

10 03 2007

Oh well…things don’t always go as planned. Sadly, the Bison were not victorious last night.  They fell short against the Holy Cross Crusaders 74-66. Read a write up about it here. But one third of the “raucous” fans were clad in orange….we do love our Bison!!

But this occasion does bring to mind a poem. Ernest Lawrence Thayer’s Casey at the Bat.

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.
