Haiku Friday -- Ode on a TV Screen

(click on the icon for more particiapants)

Ode on a TV Screen

All this week and next
Battles will be won or lost
On hundred yard fields

Twenty-two young men
Eleven make up each force
Face to face in war

Proud parents will watch
Fans will cheer in wild support
Glad to be a part

The prize to be won
Is pride and the right to brag
Now and for all time

That day we were best
Will be told for years to come
Spectaular play

As years in the past
2009 has begun
Football on TV

My team is already out (the Pats). I'm not sure what to do with my Sundays this January. We're so used to play off games and Super Bowls.

Timely Haiku topic today. While everyone else is watching football on TV, I'll be enjoying life doing other things ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Da Bears. All they had to do was win. And they lost. No playoffs for me. I guess I'll have to blog.

Hehehe, awesome 'ku! I'm not a football fan, but I like the snacks and the trash talking. :)
