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”
