For Football Fans

All emotions and hopes exchanging through a common fax
singing songs of victory and toasting a beer to relax
priding on a rich history
moving in one chemistry
mock us when we lose and face the inevitable axe.

High School Football-Favorite Sport

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.

Eulogy for a Quarterback's Reputation

We're angry!  What sports fan can blame us?

There hasn't been one loss for Jameis

     But off-the-field ruckus

     Makes sportscasters muck us

Once famous, now Jameis just shames us

*Written November 13, 2014 about Florida State University quarterback Jameis Winston.

Big Stud-On-Campus

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!

Monday Night Football

It is now the season of fall.
Are you ready for some football?
It comes on Monday night.
A spectator’s delight.
There is excitement and fun for all.

The Big Football Game

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

Drew Threw

Drew Brees threw with ease
For Who-Dats to please
But never encroach
Upon the head coach
In spite of their pleas

Manning Vs Brady

The naysayers said Manning was too old,

     And under Brady's pressure he would fold.

          But Peyton proved 'em wrong,

               And came through very strong!

                    Manning out-gunned Brady and caught him cold!

Playing Football

Playing Football - A Children's Poem There once was a lad from Baghdad who sat in dad's Porsche, a fad. He liked to play footie with ball he'd got sooty, so messed up the car for his dad.

Football Mania Victim's Hysteria

“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.”

There was a man fom Nepal

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

The Hayne Plane

The Hayne plane took America by storm,
The Yanks soon realised he was not the norm,
He dodged through gaps
As he downed his flaps,
The opposition looked quite forlorn.

Football My Fav

There once was a sports game called football.
Where the players knew how to trip and fall.
   They were clumsy it's true.
    You see they wore Panther's blue.
And the coach never knew what to call.

It's Iron Bowl Time in Alabama

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.)

Football Playoff

They had one more chance to prevail.
He must catch this throw or they fail.
So excited the crowd
Got really quite loud
His run moved the siz-a-mic scale.

Cleveland Fan

I know of a football team called the Browns
They are the laughing stock of many towns
While their players get smoked
Their Dawg Pound fans get toked
And each week they earn their nickname of Clowns

But I am their fan and I'll always cheer
Through fumbles and losses I'll never veer
I'll keep my head raised high
I'll love them 'til I die
Because after all, there's always next year

Football - A Game Of Life

Just like a football I am kicked aroun'

   I refuse to let such things get me down

      I shall e'er keep in sight

         And strive with all my might

            To press toward the goal to claim my crown

Limerick crochetes: Once Warrior Fifteen from down under

Limerick crochetés: Once Warrior Fifteen from down under

Once Warrior Fifteen from down under
Trained so hard Hakka to outclap thunder
	Scared s..t off rivals
	To reach the Finals
At Twitch-in-Ham where Prince roared like Pauper

Anthems sweet lulled the cheery spectator
World hushed to watch Black Hakka Warrior
	Earth shook hearts thumped shrieked gulls
	Petrified spell-bound rivals
Warrior lungs burst Cup won by neither

Big-money football magnates cheered together
At last World will look up to footballer
	American rivals
	Or Pelé-fan Bra-zil’s
Hakka now sole weapon of US soldier

Irreverent Football Fan

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 !!

A player whose name rhymes with Clooney Got drunk and then drove - what a loony Spent the night locked in jail When released he looked pale The outlook for him may be gloomy He’ll get whacked with an enormous fine But his club won't force him to resign It would make much more sense losing his road licence and he stops drinking lager and wine!

Losing My Passion for Football

                                    I once was a football fan.
                                    But now I'm a wiser man.
                                    I think it all sucks,
                                    crushing brains for bucks.
                                    But for owners it's just coin in the can.

                                    Those who seek blood in a stadium,
                                    want all their bombs filled with radium.
                                    Violence, you see,
                                    is their B&B.
                                    They exult for the shattered cranium.

                                    Instead we could televise chess.
                                    The excitement's still there, more or less.
                                    With cheerleading nerds,
                                    who'll tease us with words.
                                    Instead of what's hid 'neath their dress.

                                    You probably just think I'm a prude.
                                    But I swear I'm a regular dude.
                                    Whatever you choose,
                                    you'll win or you'll lose.
                                    But do it with lust and you're screwed.

                                            (Written:  9/29/17)
