I know we’ve been posting a lot of Wally Hall content lately, and although I worry a bit about running that theme into the ground, it’s the offseason and pickings are slim. Plus, when I read his column today it had an almost lyrical quality that really jumped out at me…the obvious next step was to rearrange certain lines to form a free verse poem.
So, without further ado, allow me to present a work I call “An Island in a Rocky Sea”. It’s a little abstract, but also deeply meaningful…if there are any English majors out there, I look forward to reading your interpretations.
“An Island in a Rocky Sea”
It is a learning process.
Football is a game for tough guys.
Some coaches agree but don’t do a lot of hitting.
Petrino is not afraid to go for a home run with the long pass, either.
Left tackle is usually a guy on his own. An island in a rocky sea.
The offense is varied so the blocking schemes are too.
That once he did, it was like a light came on.
