I tend to write when I can't sleep at night, digging up raw, incoherent ideas that need a little more processing the next day. And when you mix in the proper amount of boredom, you come up with some weird yet hilarious things. And this might be one of them.
I was up Thursday night trying to think of something funny to put together and this is what I came up with. Just a little goofing off before tomorrow's kickoff.
T’was the night before football inside Jerry’s house
Not a player was stirring, not even Fred Rouse;
The crystal was polished and put up with care,
In hopes that some gold soon would be there;
The players were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of "cheese crumbs" danced in their heads;
And Trickett with his ‘gar, and Sal in his ‘lac,
Had settled their brains for a pre-whoopin’ nap;
When somewhere in Arlington there arose such a clatter,
It was Jimbo studying lasers, spread offense and gray matter;
Away to the end zone Los flew like a flash,
Tore open the nickel, they call it a gash;
Though, dreams do occur it seems at a blur,
Some bust ass like Mario Pender;
Young Ramsey flying, making plays galore,
And maybe even an early case for the Thorpe;
Winston, too, a crown of his own,
It’ll take moving mountains for a chance to dethrone;
‘Cause we know one thing, and one thing, that’s it,
At Florida State, if they gonna do it then, they do it big.
Happy football! & Go Noles!
