Football

Football season is here again. The warriors are ready to meet On a field of battle green and white Vowing never to face defeat.. Summer training has come and gone The players fitness is at the very top. The competition is also ready to play They swear no other can make them stop. The cameras are ready to televise the games And bring them into your home. The playing fields are neatly groomed From Giants Stadium to the Superdome. The creme de la creme play in the NFL Where only the best players in the world are found. Teams meet head to head six months during winter With sudden death playoffs til a winner is crowned. The best of the best are enshrined in the Hall. Tittle, Butkus, Gifford and Allworth, Olsen, Staubach, Huff , Lambert and Swann, Casper, Lilly and of course there is Stallworth. Landry, Madden, Starr, Taylor and Tarkenton. Dawson, the Rooneys and the Mara brothers, Macky and Mathews, Newsome and Payton Shula, Riggins and so many others. . These players were the best of the best. Men we all could praise and admire Men who should be examples to follow Men who keep the bar moving higher. There are 241 players enshrined And many others to follow. But for now we are watching The crowded path that leads us all to “The Show”
