Pau Gasol: Big opera fan



[The following verse is based on Philip Hersh’s delightful piece in Sunday’s Tribune: “Going bass line-A night at the opera provides an escape from the rigors of the NBA for Bulls big man Pau Gasol”.]


In a double A seat long and tall

Watching Tosca thrice sits Pau Gasol.

When the Bulls signed him

I got right  behind him

But I won’t  at the opera at all.

  • Here's to hoping the fat lady doesn't sing.

  • In reply to 4zen:

    Which reminds me: Is there an aria for "I Strained my Hammy in D Minor?"

    Italian tenor from Australia.

  • In reply to jack:

    You might say Dellavedova made Melba toast of the Bulls.

  • Well put.

  • Cleverly done. I like the choice of "Tosca" -- one of my favorite arias, "E lucevan le stelle," is in it. It's memories of the stars shining and loving life -- not bad for playoff time.
