My Annual Draft Poem
Since 2009, I’ve set my EverTrue draft to rhyme. In an effort to keep the tradition alive, here are this year’s results. Enjoy!
‘Twas eleven days before the season’s start date
twenty thirteen was just a blank slate.
My crew was online ready to draft for the year
so cool to be back with friends far and near.
I got the twelfth pick in a standard snake
I’ll be good on receiver, but which back should I take?
The countdown’s begun and my fingers are crossed
T. Rich had fallen so not all was lost.
It’s the end of the third and I’ll choose back-to-back
I opt for VJax then Wilson, this team’s lookin’ stacked.
Heading into the fifth and my kid goes berserk
someone tell Miley; this is life post-twerk.
After hemming and hawing, I click with eyes closed
Romo made the cut… and I just got hosed.
Time to regroup and start digging for gold
for the next seven rounds I resolve to be bold.
It’s the end of the seventh and Vereen‘s holding steady
dang, this is when stuff starts to get heady.
With a shrug and a breath I tap the Pat‘s number two,
then opt for a receiver, the question is who?
How cool, look at this, the draft ends with me
yeah, you know I’ll roll with my boy, Robbie.
My team’s now complete and I’m feeling alright
call me crazy, but 2013’s gonna be tight.
