Football Haiku

Glory, speed, power
Offense, defense, special teams
This is a team sport

Name of the game is football
Strength, perseverance

Smack-mouth, bone-crushing
This is the way of the game

The game of inches
That is what it's all about
Penalties, yards, flags

Everyone knows who you are
Fame, fortune, success

Winners and losers
Is what it all comes down to
Who wants the win more?

Effort, passion, heart
You play for sixty minutes
May the best team win

Since the Super Bowl and Pro Bowl are approaching during the next two weeks, my mind is on football and wanted to share my thoughts about a sport I love.
