Radio In Haiku: What Are They Thinking?

Red Plastic Radio

Tomorrow morning
I’ll be on the radio
What are they thinking?

That’s 720 AM
Eleven thirty

I’m very excited to have been invited to participate in a segment of tomorrow’s installment of ChicagoNow Radio on WGN.  I’ll be joining sports talk veteran George Ofman, who writes the “That’s All She Wrote” blog at  ChicagoNow, to discuss what’s news in Chicago sports with host Bill Leff. 

It’ll be an interesting contrast. 

George has been doing sports talk for 36 years – thoughtful analysis in full sentences and paragraphs.

I’ve been writing a haiku sports blog for 2 years – 17 syllable poetry that doesn’t even rhyme.

The idea was that writing haiku instead of typical commentary would put more importance on being clever than being smart.  Tomorrow morning that theory will be put to the test.

George is the smart one.
Will I be clever enough
To disguise that fact?

Tune your radio dial to 720-AM or stream it live to find out.  The show begins at 9:00am (Central), our segment starts at 11:30.
