Did Shakespeare Ever Play Football?

To be, or not to be, that’s the question.
No one broke a green chair at this year’s draft.
Serious draft or just a bull session,
Who’s the first person to need a life raft?
Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
No way! Smells like old beer, farts and cigars.
Shh, quiet, I pick next. I need to pray.
Tell me, do the Texans have any stars?
Tenth year of the Big Guy Fantasy League,
Only one guy found a magazine rack.
Must be getting football battle fatigue,
Or we might be way off the beaten track.

Internet stats and websites changed us all.
We’ve come far since Matt’s paper updates,
And Thursday night’s roster change up phone call.
What’s next, our draft run by Mr. Bill Gates?
Friends, food and fellowship all around football.
I’m in this with you guys, for the long haul.

Thanks Andrew and Paul.

Andrew, is there some black hole of missing posts on this site?

Most likely the same place that my paycheck seems to go. lol

We're checking on the missing posts. I'll post a status report in the Site News section.
