Sports Role Models

At first, I copied Baggio

and dwelt by Buddha’s sacred pond.

But now I’m Joe DiMaggio

and chase a tall, curvaceous blonde.



About Damian Balassone

Damian Balassone is a delusional Collingwood supporter who writes poetry and fiction.


  1. Is it wrong that I laughed aloud?

  2. Not at all, Smokie. That is the intention. I’m surprised the Baggio/DiMaggio rhyme hasn’t been done before. Maybe it has.

  3. Phillip Dimitriadis says:

    Haha DB. Would never have thought of Baggio/DiMaggio.
    However, I find it hard to think of Marilyn without thinking of Elton John these days. Pretty sad really…

  4. Luke Reynolds says:

    Brilliant Damian!

  5. Superb Damian

  6. Thanks Phil, Luke and Rulebook. Nothing wrong with Elton John, Phil. Candle in the Wind is a beautiful song.
