This Losing Thing Is Underrated

At first today my heart was pained

By knowing every team

In the NFL I cared about

This year had lost their dream.

Then my brain switched on a light

And I did realize

Two teams I strongly dislike

Have to get hit by guys twice my size,

That excellence and victory

Brought them 4 weeks of extra pain

For a 50/50 shot

At a trophy they might gain.

And somewhere betwixt my brain and heart

I realized how futile are rings and crowns

And found new admiration

For the 49ers and the Browns.

You know when you lose

And you feel pretty lame

But you shake hands

And tell your partner “good game?”

I hope that you don’t

Because that old-fashioned crap is dead.

Losing is for losers.

Inaugurate Bernie instead!
