Relic In The Tin

Relic In The Tin

Goodbye Wax Heaven
Though we never met at all
You had the content to mesmerize
While lesser blogs did fall
They crawled out of the woodwork
And they commented into your brain
They came to see Canseco
And stayed when you changed your name

And it seems to me your blog lived its life
Like a relic in the tin
Never knowing which game was played
When the cards came in
And I would have liked to have met you
But I’m in the city of wind
McGwire's card burned up long before
Your legend ever did

Exclusives were tough
The toughest scoop you ever made
Blogosphere created a superstar
And time was the price you paid
Even when you retired
The readers still hounded you
All the blogs had to say
Was that Mario we’ll be missing you

And it seems to me your blog lived its life
Like a relic in the tin
Never knowing which game was played
When the cards came in
And I would have liked to have met you
But I’m in the city of wind
Pinnacle closed up long before
Your legend ever did

Goodbye Wax Heaven
Though we never met at all
You had the content to mesmerize
While lesser blogs did fall
Goodbye Wax Heaven
From the man on the South Side of Chicago
Who wishes you the best in your new life
You are more than just Wax Heaven’s Mario

And it seems to me your blog lived its life
Like a relic in the tin
Never knowing which game was played
When the cards came in
And I would have liked to have met you
But I’m in the city of wind
Fleer went bankrupt long before
Your legend ever did
