To play the game in freezing temp
And ever falling snow,
The player nor the fan is wimp.
At home we think them schmo.

But there’s one thing that’s even worse
Than frostbite with your bruise –
That’s overtime, an extra curse,
And pain then when you lose.


————————————

The temperature was 24 degrees and snow fell throughout
the game.  The agony of the weather didn’t end in regulation,
though because New England tied the game with a field goal
as time ran out.  The misery continued in overtime but the
Broncos won on their first drive with a long run, ending the
Patriots’ undefeated season.

Football Withdrawal

Will I die
Of missing the game
While driving?

I will miss
The very best part –
Commercials.

Asking For Trouble

Halftime plan –
What were they thinking!
Madonna??!

And The MVP Is

At halftime
Quickest reflexes –
The censor.

Dumb or Clumsy?

If close, more
Likely than heroes –
A big goat.

Who’s my pick –
Patriots, Giants?
Washington.

One Certainty

Even if
Turns out not super –
Super hype.
