Sunday Poem – Madness – SOLSC Day #24

Madness

The crowd gathers

around the television.

Excitement is building

in the air.

Ten point run to start,

cheers erupt from the couch.

The Rams begin

their comeback.

Tension is building

in the air.

Dribble, drive, basket,

cheers erupt from the couch.

Finger roll for two,

three pointer, three pointer, three pointer.

Our team is pulling

away.

Break away for two and foul,

cheers erupt from the couch.

Thirty-two points to their twenty-two

in the second half.

More crossovers, two from the baseline,


their in complete control.

Buzzer sounds, onto round two,

cheers erupt from the couch.

Our favorite team is victorious.

Go Syracuse Orange women!

Our favorite men’s basketball team lost on Thursday, but our favorite women’s team advances to the second round of the tournament.  The girls and their friends (eight in all) were jumping off the couch, high-fiving, and fist bumping the whole four quarters.  This is one of my favorite parts of March.
