Michael Lewis has a new gig
I’d like to wish him well
Will it bring him fame and fortune?
O‎nly time will tell

But I think we know
We can count on him for fair, unbiased reports
And consistent, fact-based journalism
‎Free of personal attacks and impolite retorts

So whether New York is red, blue or green
You where to go for the straight story
If it’s happening, Mr. Lewis will be on the scene
Covering the beautiful game in all its glory
