NFL Kickoff Poem:

'Twas the night before kickoff, in every fans house,

Not a fan was sleeping, just ask their spouse;


The jersey's were hung by the flat screen with care,

In hopes that their team would win the afair;


The players were nestled all snug in their beds,

While visions of touchdowns danced in their heads;


The wifey asleep, my computer in lap,

Forgot to set my fantasy team, oh what the crap;


On the NFL network was the injury chatter,

I sprang to my feet to see what's the matter;


I gave the volume an extra push,

What do ya know, another injury to Bush;


Lights turned off so the TV a glow,

Did i forget the beer? Damn it, oh no!;


When what to my wondering eyes should appear,

Drug store commercials with sales on beer;


Friends, pizza, and wings, what a day,

Except for the times Favre gives the ball away;


As I close my eyes to fall asleep,

tears of joy, i start to weep;


Last thing I look at is the ESPN ticker,

Bad news about my team started to flicker;


What! With only ten hours to go,

My team didn't sell enough tickets, BLACK OUT, that blows!


No fan should have to miss a game because the team doesn't sell enough tickets. In the words of Hank Williams Jr. "Are you ready for some football"?
