Game Day

Mighty Ducks win the game
Pass the ball perfect the play
There's so much riding on your fame
Men clad in armor win the day

The crowds are grumbling they've all gone wild
The stripes bad call has hardened your trial
Yard by yard your penalties mass
But you'll take the lead with a touchdown pass

86 yards with a kick return 
Your rival now should show concern 
We love your power your drive your speed
The beer the bets the company

Football Game day 
Phones be texting
Tailgate fun scores projecting 
Simple fun that's life affecting

It's more than manly testosterone 
That compels us to the game
It's teamwork pride the thrill of the fight
How the underdog pushed and overcame 

Sports and competition have always been a way of life 
Revealing the mighty but also the contrite
Teaching lessons of brotherhood
More victory together than alone we ever could 

So when we gather scream and shout 
Seemingly insane over a meaningless thing
Remember this on Game Day proud
When from the rest of life we simply check out

Is it really so bad to drink too much 
With Oregon's O displayed 
Colored faces worshiping the Duck
When they fumble we yell O  F_ _ _ 

Be it victory or cruel defeat
There's more to this than meets the eye
It's about families, lovers and the best of friends
Gathering to play to laugh and to cry

Game Day for the Oregon Duck
Of our team we're so damn proud
As a fan have you made the cut
Or resigned to just miss out

A Prayer of a Footballer

O Lord! Thou art my Coach
I shall never be defeated
 Strengthen me for this game
As I humble call on your name 

Invigorate my heart, mind and body
When I fall, pick me up and energize me
Grant me the tenacity to win every ball
And courage to stand whatever befall

Yea, though my opponents frighten me
Like roaring Lions out of their den
My great Coach always inspires me
Your pep talk! Your word! Uplifts me

Though fear and despair bites me
Like venomous snakes out of the shadow
My Lord is with me everywhere I go
You prepare a strategy to defeat my foe

When the final whistle is blown
And the team heads to the dressing room
May my Lord, the great Coach when He calls my name
Say “Gideon! You played like a Lion, you played the game” 

And surely victory, glory and goodness 
Will hunt me all the days of my life
And I shall look up to my Coach forever
Walking with me now and ever!

The Poet Preacher © 2014

Ps 18:39 My Coach has fortified me with strength [energy, power, strategy, capability] for the battle [big game, contest, combat]: He has subdued [vanquished, beaten, massacred, overpowered] my opponents.

Crush the giant apart


It's very intriguing how life's test is
Unpredictable hurdles like a Lecturer's quiz
One giant in life I so tremble and fear
Especially, when the cliff-hanger draws near

Yet, I'll never stop believing in myself
O yes! Never stop believing in yourself
Through thick and thin I'll prevail
There's no way I'll fail

I'll keep moving towards the promised land
I'll keep moving and not stand
I'll attack and crush my giant apart
O yes! There's so much power in my heart

I'll tear him apart, I'll pull him down
I'll scatter him upon the ground
I'll give him my best 'Gargo' shot
And blow him at his blind spot

I'll strike his eyes and wash it with turpentine
I'll cut of his tongue and his intestine
I'll break him down and cut of his head
I'll crush this giant and finish him like bread

I'll play hard from beginning to end, I'll go on
Though the cliff may be tedious and long
I'll go on to achieve my quest
O yes! I'll go out to be the best

Gridiron Glory

Summer's nearly over,
Fall's around the bend;
Fire up the family grill,
Football's back again!

Call up Uncle Benny,
Bring Aunt Lucy too;
Don't forget the "doggies",
We've got lots of brew!

Popcorn's on the table,
Burgers on the bun;
The game's just begun!

Grandpa's on the sofa,
Fiddlin' with his crotch;
Grandma's in limbo,
Staring at her watch!

Benny's passin' gas,
Aunt Lucy's joining in;
We make a hasty exit,
Departing from our den!

In the living room we sit,
Wrapped up in the game;
Here comes Uncle Benny,
With a rather silly claim!

"They won't shut up talkin!"
"Can I sit in here with you?"
The game's gettin' good,
Then grandpa walks in too!

Between the fiddlin' and fartin',
I think we're getting sick;
Something's gotta happen,
And it's gotta happen quick!

A bar down the way,
Alone on Maple Street;
Halftime's nearly over,
It's time to retreat!

Among screaming fans,
The QB throws a pass;
It's football season, baby!
Let's have ourselves a blast!

GO BLUE-Into The Blue Contest

University of Michigan Football- Into The Blue Contest

Labor Day comes it's college football season
     my family has been waiting all year
         some think it's crazy that the reason
            is University of Michigan football is here!

Maize and blue, the colors of the team
    dazed and confused I become the black sheep
        my hubby and daughter stand up and scream
          while I secretly pray for their score in my sleep. 

See, I'm a closet fan and always have been
    I pretend not to care, but I really do
       I need to know what mood hubby will be in
          oh my, how we love the wolverines... GO BLUE!!!

In Last Place

He hasn't said ten words to me -
for say, two hours and one long half.
I might as well be absentee
except for an off-handed laugh.

He takes football with white hot fun;
if we're behind, he catches fire!
The game is done, I think we won
and we are headed for the car.

So maybe now I'll have his voice?
Fat chance, it's only radio.
He's flipping channels, makes his choice
finding at last - the post-game show.

When in the drive the static stops, 
the dog is howling at the door.
He lets her in, and rubs her chops
then play by play tells her the score.

I head for bed and say goodnight
but does he note my lonesome tone?
What’s that I hear?  You guessed it right -
a message on the speaker phone.

Plenty of room in Le Fut for Soccer

Plenty of room in « Le Foot »* for Soccer
     For Doug Vinson at PoetrySoup.com
Not long ago King Pelé
   Set “le foot” in America
Today his peoples’ muted “Olé”!
   Rue the day at Maracana

Now from coast to conniving coast
   Your Can-Can gals kick “le balon”*
No Wall in between the goal-posts
   To win at summit many a “galon”*

Alright! Keep your cherished football
   Iced-hoc-key bounced balls in basket
But let echo corked-leather on “saule”*
   Crikey! "le cri-cri"* of “le cricket”

Tremble at the hakka-cry of the All Blacks
   Cringe before Aussie toughs at Springbok élan
And let them romp with the Six-Nation packs
   Over your greens with fifteen Argentinian

Call out to the run-machine Little Master*
   And let his blade flash home-runs tout azimut
Over heads of fielders spectators and trainer
   And let your millions throb and catapult 
Your new knights sans armour in world arena
   And gasp at fresh records topple centuries*
On pitch and turf in Tests across suburbia
   And join the world in friendly rivalries.

*"Le Foot"or "Le Fut": French for football/soccer.
*"le balon": French for ball.
*"le(s) galon(s)": French for "stripes" as in "to win one's stripes in battle" (gagné ses galons au combat) .
*"le saule": French for the willow tree. "Willow" is metonymy for the cricket bat as the latter is made from the tree.
*"le cri-cri": familiar French for "le grillon", the insect cricket.
*"Little Master", sobriquet of Sachin Tendulkar, the retired legendary Indian test-cricketer, the counterpart of the Brazilian Pelé in soccer. See my poem: "The Little Master: Sachin Tendulkar", my most-read ever poem.
*"centuries": batting records in cricket run into a few centuries, mostly in five-day international test-matches.

With the collapse of your cleats
A city's spirit rallies  behind you 
The heart of a champion beats
You brought pride, and hope too

We needed you more than you know 
Pay no attention to the news
Your a firefly with a glow
Like gravity drawn to your moves 

Focus forward and beaming bright 
A wink of the future you will achieve 
Lead the way, shine your light 
The team is entrusted, We believe

Dedicated to RG3
Quarterback of my Washington Redskins

An Example of a Trample

In Texas, High School Football is king Every Friday night there’s a game A big event and the stands are full The games aren’t played for fun, they’re for fame In my second year of College life My High School Football team went to State I was compelled to go to Baytown A Championship maybe their fate So proud was I, my team on the field In the high school color, power blue The group of us sitting in the stands Tyler High fans through and through Then the Abilene team came on the field I could feel a big lump in my throat Man for man they all looked like giants The front linemen were something of note From the first snap, you knew things were bad Abilene’s linemen were in control The whole line of scrimmage moved with them My team got trampled under their roll Yes, Trampled would be the word of choice And it continued throughout the game Abilene won the Championship Trampled Tyler left Baytown in shame

Jesus loses red card appeal

Dependable Defender Jésus Christ of Nazareth Football Club

This morning lost His appeal for the red card He received

During His side game with the highly rated Pharisees

He’ll  be unavailable for their match against the Sadducees

He was sent off by no-nonsense referee Pontius Pilate

For defeating a host of Principalities and Powers

The Club failed to have the decision overturned by the Jurisdiction

He will therefore be sentenced to death by crucifixion

The ‘Special One’ is to make no comment on the decision

After Herod Disciplinary Committee dismissed the club’s appeal

Jésus offered Himself as a *Sacrificial Lamb* for a collective guilt

On the football club’s recent sloppiness and wilt

The Stalwart Defender's Penalty

Will begin with a physical torture

Followed by carrying a heavy rugged cross

Is the Disciplinary Committee right? Make your gloss


Tony Taylor writes, March 28th…2:17

A typical King Herod Decision!

I think the decision needs a 

Gary Neville writes, March 28th….2:19

Watching Jésus on the field is immensely enjoyable 

This Rock from Nazareth is just unconquerable 

Rashford writes, March 28th….3:15

Corrupt official! Corrupt leader

All they care is 30 pieces of silver

Major Buckley writes, March 28th…3:17



Nana Ama writes, March 28th…..4:17

The decision by ref Pontius Pilate was very harsh 

Jésus triumphed! And He did it with great panache 

Wolf writes, March 28th….5:15

The blame must lay with Judas and McCoy

Surely it’s their fault not Jésus. Sorry boy!

Omar writes,March 28th….. 6:17

You’re an idiot’s wolf!

This Jesus should go play golf!

Crucify Him sir! Crucify Him! I rest my case

Jonathan Reid writes, March 28th…7:17

I personally think Herod can’t rescind the red card

We talking football politics. He didn't tackle too hard 

Leave your gloss in the box below

you need whether it be [in] training, 
ball work, fitness or whatever [murk] 
and make your dreams true,” aiming.

And so plays football on their team. Internationally,

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”
