My Third Annual Draft Poem
For the past two years, I’ve set my EverTrue draft to rhyme. It’s been such a popular feature of the blog that I’ve decided to make it a yearly tradition. Here are this year’s results. Enjoy!
‘Twas the Sunday before football was set to begin
Did I really need to drink that last glass of Zin?
These fools on the East Coast are three hours ahead
It’s crazy early here and I’m nearly brain dead.
Enough, no excuses, let’s get this draft goin’
I log into to Yahoo! and see my friends broin’.
The excitement is high and we’re happy to be back
Of cheat sheets and trash talking there isn’t a lack.
Much to my surprise, for the first time in years
I get the number one pick, while everyone sneers.
Confident and sure, I roll with “All Day”
Here’s hoping his o-line keeps defenders at bay.
Moving into round six and the pickins are thin,
Fingers crossed, Julio Jones will help my team win.
Each week, in this league, we start three wide outs,
Here’s to hopin’ Evans learned the Ravens new routes.
Heading into the eleventh and I need me an end
Man, drafting them late has become such a trend.
I really like Kendricks and his hands have been hot,
Guess he’s my starter whether he’s ready or not.
Phew, I made it, we’re almost done here
Time to let out a sigh, and open a beer.
With a giggle and a smirk, I make my last pick.
Oh, Seabass, how you make my heart tick.
