Ode to the Super Bowl

anthem sung
game's begun
Super Bowl

hut, hut, hike
touchdown spike
take control

run, pass, throw
8 yards to go
need field goal

chicken wings
salsa zings
swallow whole

quarterback fake
commercial break
heart and soul

down field throw
halftime show
rock and roll

extra point
hurt knee joint
lose control

winning team
blows off steam
crowd control

best team won
season done
Super Bowl

  1. From a Broncos point of view, it's time to see those words, "season done". What a hype it's been this week! You've got us ready, Bridget!

    1. Thanks, Linda! I like the Broncos - Peyton Manning is one of my favorite football players. I agree, enough with the hype. =)

  2. I like your format, Bridget! To be honest, I'm more interested in the anthem and the wings than the other (actual football-playing) stuff. Yay snacks!

  3. Perfect! You've captured all the excitement and play by play of the day. Especially like "swallow whole." :) Great energy and movement in your words.

    1. Thanks, Karin! The Super Bowl is an event experienced on many different levels for many different reasons - I like the gastronomical one best. =)

  5. Nice rhythm you have there, in addition to the wordplay. As for the Seahawks...sorry, their season is already done. ;)

    1. Thanks, Matt! I agree - the Seahawks should have been done two weeks ago! I was hoping for a Packer/Patriot Super Bowl...maybe next year. =)

  6. It's almost here, though I admit I'm in only for the Patriots. Nice poem that captures the entire viewer experience.

  7. You worked hard to hold on to that kicky form through the whole long game, Bridget--nice job! I'd commit to the Super Bowl if it lasted only as long as your poem. : )

  8. You write as if you actually know what you're talking about, Bridget! This, coming from someone who most assuredly does not. I do recognize a great rhyme scheme when I see it, though. :)

    1. Thanks, Myra! We have to wait a whole year for the next Super Bowl. I could do without the hype, though. =)
