De Stadio Ianqueo

My family and I are visiting New York this summer, a trip which will allow us to take in a game at venerable Yankee Stadium before the wrecking ball strikes this winter.

I have visited the stadium previously, and felt a classic sporting venue deserved a classic ode. Click here to review my less-than-Horatian work (I’ve always liked Horace’s O Fons Bandusiae) and tell me where I went wrong.

Yes, one could say I’m targeting a very narrow audience with this poem (Latin scholars who are baseball fans), but I thought it was worth a shot. It’s actually inspired some thoughts about modern Latin poetry which I’ll get around to posting later in the week…

Qui sciet quae quoque sint modo dicenda, nisi tamen in procinctu paratamque ad omnis casus habuerit eloquentiam, velut clausis thesauris incubabit.
