Fellow Buckeyes, the first game is so close!  We're finally going to kick off the 2013 season, a year in which we go undefeated...again...and bring home the National Championship.  In that spirit, I offer this poem...
 



"Game Week"

 Kenneth Nichols

 

Sunday is for catching up on web sites, blogs and podcasts.

Where are we in the polls? And will Coach Hoke's offensive mods last?

On Monday, all our thoughts are clear from two days of digestion:

The perfect day for homers to allow themselves confessions.

Now, Tuesday is before the hump; the wait can be quite daunting.

So call a Wolverine and share some light, good-natured taunting.

On Wednesday's when we start to get excited for the game

We look up our opponent and put faces with the names.

It's Thursday?  Time to wash your jersey and decide which sports bar's best.

(Or to vacuum up the living room for your Buckeye faithful guests.)

Come Friday, it's Skull Session Time! Let’s prep and feel the hype;

We hit Eleven Warriors 'til we're too tired to type.

 




On Saturday, the Scarlet and Gray parade down High and Neil.

We’ll crush the opposition with our hard work, joy and zeal.

Friends, we all get pumped by those hype videos.  Well, poetry also has a long history of getting people pumped.  What is a halftime speech but a few minutes of free verse?  Here's an example we all remember:

Tress layin' it down.

Why not share some of your own rhymes and lines to help others get psyched for kickoff?

Fellow Buckeyes, the first game is so close!  We're finally going to kick off the 2013 season, a year in which we go undefeated...again...and bring home the National Championship.  In that spirit, I offer this poem...
