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.
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.
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 about former FSU quarterback Jameis Winston's run ins with the law.
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!

A pretty Welsh girl in Caerphilly
Was invited to play ball with Willie
One kick to his ball
Caused Willie to fall
So she thought the game was quite silly!
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.
Drew Brees threw with ease
For Who-Dats to please
But never encroach
Upon the head coach
In spite of their pleas
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
Football is my favourite sport
The two below are whom I support
Rangers and Everton, my teams
When they win I so beam
This game of games I import
Once knew a lad who called himself Brad
From a very young age Brad was football mad
Till one day a sweet Miss
Gave Brad a big kiss
The best contact sport that Brad ever had

The ball was loose and bouncing
Joe dove towards it, just missing
The clock ticking down
Just then, Joe had found
His football skills were lacking
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.
*for Royal Trevino's "My favorite sport (Limerick)" contest
There once was a football fan from Philly
Who was known for being very silly
During the Eagles Super Bowl win
He dipped his chicken wings in gin
And gulped down Bud Light, dilly dilly
There is a Pug dog named Jackson
and college football is his game,
with no time to spare
he's up in his chair,
to watch his favorite team Notre Dame
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.
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
We invented cricket and football
And guess what we useless at them all
We loose every game
Drives the supporters insane
But we good for an after game brawl
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.
For Royal's contest
In our house, 'tis the season for football
Cheering our teams, jeering the ref's calls
But he's not the sort
To care about sports
So my hubby gets lonely every fall!
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
Entry for kristen bruni's "Football" contest
My favorite sport is that of football
Now, I am an American if you do recall
So please understand
We can use our hands
And not get a red card if our opponent should fall
The older woman suddenly beams
When the young man says they are his dream
Thinking he's a fan
She flashes her cans
But his T-shirt reads, 'Cougars Football Team.'
Happy day of giving thanks to all Ameri-cans
enjoy your feasting-football-family, party-hearty plans
even to you
who do tofu
instead of turkey (those birds, your biggest fans)
On the football field young Davy hurt his knee
Lots of excruciating pain, yes-sir-ee,
He is never a quitter
Says he is never fitter
Continuing playing to win is the key.

I like my football, you know how it goes
Who's gonna win?, nobody knows
I sit in my favorite chair
In only my underwear
And a pair of Joe Namath's pantyhose
