a bit of orange poetry

Wrote this for a school poetry contest and elicited quite a few laughs at its reading. enjoy.

We went through November without a loss,

No ACL Tears, keep your fingers crossed.

We thought this team was going to be great.

But first let’s get a few facts straight.

 

December came, the team looked nice

The players lacked blood, instead it was ice.

Through Memphis, Kansas, and the florida gators,

3 wins to silence all the haters.

 

Then there was one lonely night in December,

An event which we try not to remember.

The one night we didn’t play so great,

So we lost to a school called Cleveland state?

 

A 60 footer that should not have gone in,

Left us all thinking “why didn’t we win?”

Boeheim was stressed, his cheeks turned red,

And more gray hairs jumped ship off his head.

 

Then something else happened, it’s since been put to bed

Devendorf slapping girls in the head.

Was kicked off the team, what a disgrace

Then he said he simply high fived her face.

 

To get back on the team to fufill his wishes,

He wound up washing tons of dishes

And getting interviewed by every reporter

Like his case belonged on law and order

 

Many weeks passed, the guys played with reason

And gave jimmy b 30 20 win seasons.

Wins over Marquette, Georgetown, and notre dame.

Syracuse would never quite be the same.

 

These men were led by a guy named Flynn,

Who knew nothing more than breathing and how to win.

Of course we still knocked on wood,

For the many other times we THOUGHT we were good

 

The big east tourney had a wonderful first night

Seton hall’s Harvey just came to fight.

But then again he picked the wrong guy.

If I saw devo, I’d be ready to die.

 

The next night came and to all surprise,

We played like a team that was on the rise

We gave jim Calhoun plenty of fits,

On a night that the fans would never forget.

 

1.1  seconds left devendorf with the shot,

It’s good, hold on a second, maybe it’s not.

The officials talk, they just cant agree,

Sorry folks, it’s time for OT.

 

The first one started fast, Syracuse was flat,

Andy rautins would have none of that

He drained his shots, the kid was insane

His shooting prowess extended the game.

 

The game dragged on for 5 more overtimes

It stole so much sleep it was such a crime

You’d like to go to sleep at the end of the day,

But its like a car wreck, you cant look away.

 

By the 6th overtime, 8 players were out,

A walk on was in, we just had our doubts.

Everyone thought, “o no not again”

But rautins would bring the game to an end.

 

The NCAA committee thought we were great,

With all the wins in a tough big east slate

The tourney came along, and we looked mean

And marched ourselves into the sweet sixteen.

 

It was there the men in orange met their match.

We counted our chickens before they hatched

It was so disappointing, all I did was shake,

While we were dismantled by a gorilla named blake.

 

Regardless, we showed some guts this year,

Next year we should be the ones to fear.

With so many guys back, lets do this again.

National Champions 2010.

 

 

Peace,
