Football is sometimes depressing to watch
Well, sometimes it isn’t
I am not a Viking fan,
Nor a Packers fan, I guess
Or a fan of any team,
When a team scores, I say ‘˜Yes!”
The day seems wasted, anticipating
If they’ll score when they play
Unless, they score, which could be now
Or never.. you know, not today.
Sometimes they’ll make a play
And the referee will interrupt
And take the point away
If I were playing
I’d be so confused
The players milling around
I am not saying this to be mean.
I do not make a big deal of it,
You know what I mean.
Brett Favre, I barely know
Is he a football player?
I am so bored with the news
Day by day, we watch
First he plays, then he doesn’t
Then he gets hurt
All the men around me complain
About his whining
Eyes glued to the screen, watching
Comments, mostly negative
When Vikings score,
What do you do?
I am afraid I don’t know the answer.
I joke around, of course I know,
That I’m to cheer when they score
It’s been so long that we’ve won
The Super Bowl, alma matter.
Again, Brett Favre, he’s on our team,
We are supposed to claim him
He came from across the border
He’s not my favorite player,
I don’t favor him
Nor are any one else on his team,
I am tired of listening to ESPN
I wish they’d turn it off
Or I suppose I can leave the room
The garbage needs to be taken out.
I am so bored.
It takes a group of players for every point that’s made
And a coach to direct their whims
When alone, I fail to turn the tv on
To watch any players play
I rate them all equally.
The Vikings team,
When we played football in grade school
I think we did play the flag kind,
We played for fun and running
We hurt our feet, our hands and backs,
And stopped playing entirely
I cannot imagine getting paid
Big bucks for throwing a football
Catching the ball is the hardest part
And running away from someone who
Wants to slam you into the ground
Does this seem fun? No it doesn’t
Okay, so Favre grows on me,
I think he’s rather nice looking,
He’s kind of a rough looking version
Of Harrison Ford
Or is it another actor?
I do not remember.
Doesn’t Matter anyways.
Which isn’t so bad.
It’s not even fun to watch
The only reason why I get together
With friends at Super Bowl Time
Is because the snacks are top notch
And the beer’s sublime!
