Pigskin Precept From Vincent.

"You must go fourth and one!" They all shout.
 while conventional wisdom they flout
 Yet Lombardi once said:
"Never waver, instead,
 put the three on the board and get out."

    Ah, I see the "sweetheart" is already doing a sports limerick contest. Good luck to you!

    Love the way you have Vince say, "Go fourth and one," as opposed to, "Go forth and win," Gerard. But you already know DD is a football fan, don't you? Thanks for stopping by my work, dear friend. I'm in Charlotte, NC on my way to my siter's in NJ. (Drove 550+ miles today.) Left from the Panhandle so I couldn't take I-95. Save this limerick, Gerard. I'm thinking of a sports limerick contest when I get settled in Jersey. Love, Carolyn

    good one Gerard, enjoyed your limerick...P.D.
