Under the lights on Friday night.
High school football starting to ignite.
Merciless to everyone.
This is war, not for fun.
Winning state is a beautiful sight.
The Big Football Game
By Elton Camp
For the game Ralph had the dough
So tickets he hunted to and fro
The party liquor splashed
Ralph ended up smashed
Thus, to the game, he forgot to go
“Woe is me,” when football season closes
Crimson Tide lost in a sea of roses
Tampa Bucs, Tide, Seminoles
To “off” my remote just strolls
I’ll use TM for football osmosis
My Coach Bowden-signed football is glass-encased
How do I endure the trauma I’ve faced?
With my pompoms cast aside
“Six-month drought!” I cried
“It would hurt less to have my face replaced.”
*Entry for Susan’s “Drama Queen” contest.
Drew Brees threw with ease
For Who-Dats to please
But never encroach
Upon the head coach
In spite of their pleas
There was a man from Nepal
Who loved to play football
He kicked it one day
It flew far away
Scoring a goal in Senegal
A well known bible school teacher
Went to the game with the preacher
She shouted obscenities
And made no amenities
He had her banned from the bleachers !!
With my recorder I pursued my quest
This assignment seemed like a courage test
That’s why my boss sent me
Knowing that fearless I’d be
Covering this race brought such happiness
Hundreds of hot air balloons in the sky
Conducted the interview one mile high
But now as I reflect
What I didn’t expect
Was the loud blast that made the balloon fly
I thought it would be quiet as we flew
Over Doak Stadium up in the blue
The radio report
Ended up running short
When the pilot spoke, the hot air did spew
Every thirty seconds or so -- a blast
Interview literally filled with gas
The edited version
From this fun excursion
Left our radio listeners aghast
But viewing Chief Osceola’s emblem
From high above the football stadium
A sight I’ll not forget
I have just one regret
Creating airwave pandemonium
* As a radio reporter I was assigned to cover the Tallahassee Annual Hot Air Balloon
Race. We flew over Florida State University’s football stadium and it was a great
view from the air. But I had to edit out each blast of air when producing the report
for Florida Public Radio. Talk about a choppy radio report. I should have
interviewed the pilot BEFORE we took off. Duh! Ignorance was my plea to the
news director -- I was later sentenced to ground duty.

Entry for Francine’s “Happiness is a Balloon” contest
Written by Carolyn Devonshire
He was the big stud-on-campus, was Todd,
Until he was nabbed smokin' somethin' odd!
Coach booted him from the team.
Up in smoke went Mommy's dream,
Of Todd being on a pro-football squad!

It’s Iron Bowl Time in Alabama
By Elton Camp
Watching football may be okay
Even following it, play-by-play
However, I say, “Ho, hum”
Don’t care about the outcome
For I will use my time another way
(For readers outside Alabama, this refers to the extreme fanaticism so often seen here about the football teams of the University of Alabama and Auburn University. People who have attended neither school get all upset over it and tend to build their lives around the fortunes of the two teams. I think that’s going way too far about a dangerous child’s game.)
