Twas the Night Before Workouts
By Alan Schechter
With workouts beginning in the morning, I thought it was time to have some fun. Tonight, we have a parody for you, in the form of a poem. The person in the picture is a guy at a poetry reading, that would be reading this to a group. Read this poem the way would read “Twas the Night Before Christmas”. For any religious people, this is not to poke fun at anyone, but just to take a light hearted look at the open of camp workouts tomorrow. So I present to you:
Twas the Night Before Workouts a parody
Twas the night before workouts, and all fans are giddy, Not a press guy was stirring, not even Cimini. The schedules were hung on the dorm rooms with care, In hopes that a Super Bowl soon would be there.
The players were nestled all sung in their beds, While visions of championships danced in their heads. Coach Rex in his sweater vest, and in his cap, Met with all the players and said, “Have a snack”.
A new year is here, and they’ve stopped with the chatter, But a Super Bowl is still all that will matter. Away to the playbook the rookies go study, So someday they can say “Please show me the money!”
There are many issues as all of us know, The biggest for certain is Sanchez/Tebow. The red zone, the wildcat, just when will he play? Not very often, if Mark wins the day.
The defense is younger, moving to 4-3, When they get to Tom Brady how happy we’ll be. Bart Scott he “can’t wait!” to be in every down, He and Aaron Maybin, they will take QB’s down.
Schotty is gone, and Sparano is in, The ground and pound game plan has brought us many wins. Shonn Greene will be counted on for a big season, Big runs from McKnight will also be the reason.
Revis is here, and it is exciting, His ticket to Canton he still will be writing. Mike Westhoff and Rex will be swearing away, Who will use more swear words? It could change every day.
And last but not least there is Santonio Holmes, If he does not catch enough balls, he moans and he groans. But he and Mark Sanchez made up this offseason, A match made in heaven? They have every reason.
But tonight is a night, to dream and see stars, A Super Bowl Championship soon could be ours. A new year is here, last year is behind us, The rest of the AFC is waiting to find us.
The offseason is over, tomorrow we’ll see, How the new year will start shaping up to be. Workouts begin, the season in sight, A shout to Jets Nation, and all a good night!
I hope you enjoyed that. Football is back!
