Ode to Dwight

Deshawn Zombie and I are working on our newest feature story for 18to88.com. It's called 93 Haikus about Dwight Freeney. Here are a few examples:

Sweat drips down Carr's face
He can't stop what is coming
Another spleen bruise

Gray stands like a statue
Crumpling under Freeney's weight
Two points on the board

Love you ninety-three
Why'd you have to break your foot?
Damn damn damn damn damn

Spleen bruise. Sweet.

I dunno, though, 93 haikus? That's a whole lot of non-rhyming poetry.

Dwight rushes the QB
Collapsing the pocket fast
Another zombie

That good?

HeatherRadish said...

Haiku can't rhyme?

Dwight's I.T. degree
From 'cuse University--
He's l33+ g33|< like m3.

*snicker*



LisFranc injury
Super-long recovery
Volunteer nurse--me!

*X-rated haiku deleted*
Where was I...

Tom Brady supine
Five layers of protection
Can't keep out Freeney

13 sacks, 8 starts
Best rookie right end evah
In the NFL

Four years in a row
Double-digit sacks recorded
Strahan never did that

The snap, the dropback,
Immediate blinding pain.
Better Straub than me.




(Actually, I don't know if Freeney is still working on the bachelor's or a master's, but a guy I work with went to Syracuse, had the same adviser, and tells me both Freeney and Harrison were on campus over the summer--Marvin's working on a master's degree. My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with a girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.)

Oh hell, I forgot to close the tag.

And here's the haiku with the link. Sheesh.

*grr*

DFree will be back
With a vengeance in oh-eight!
Says his website. Yeah!

zac said...

The foot is broken.
Tragedy. What's the result?
93 haikus.

Wow, that is impressive. Here's another:

Ninety-three limps. Wearers
of blue horseshoes weep. Oh well,
more time to play chess.

Destruction awaits
trolls on the site of their foe.
Run and hide Bob M.

zac, what're you talking about? DF loves to play chess. As does my 7 year old, in his 93 jersey.

Just came across something I had forgotten, which inspires a new haiku:

Lisfranc surgery:
Brandon Stokley had it too;
turned out just fine. Sweet.

Oh, and this Google thing hates me. argh.

Indeeeeed, Bob M. My bad, I did not know this fact. My apologies.

Pats fans on this site
Make me very skeptical.
My apologies.

Man you guys are good. You have blog trolls writing haikus. That's so postmodern it just blew my mind.

Blue blur hits Boller
So quickly he looked offsides.
Stupid yellow flags.

Ogden can't contain
His feelings for 93
And so he holds him.
