OK GUYS! –

I now have 17 Training Camp Haikus ready to post tomorrow. I’m still taking requests for any storyline from camp that needs covering though. Even if it’s something like fans sweating in the heat.

“There once was a man at St. Joe
Who wanted to see how far he could throw
He stepped back to sling
And really launched that thing
All I could say was ‘Look out below!’ “

I think that’s more a (pattern-busting) limerick than a haiku, but feel free to use it if you need/want to flesh out your collection of haikus a bit.

Between the two of us, I’d say NoVA’s was better – and it isn’t close. It fits the pattern of limerick (or is this haiku? I could never tell) more accurately and thus flows better.

Also, as a teaser, here are a few of the titles of haikus I plan on premiering tomorrow:

“Tyreek’s Tirades”
“That Undrafted Rookie Might Have Something”
“How We Almost Lost Our Season”
“Running Backs in the Running”
“Cringe-Worthy Helmet Debut”
and “Andy Reid Generic Training Camp Press Conference”

I think if you’re going to use “How We Almost Lost Our Season,” you should (toward the end of the year) come up with one called “Dr. SkyyMoore: Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Our Draft Pick” or something along those lines.

Yeah, I was tough on Skyy when we drafted him. So far, I have to say he’s looking good… Still need to see him in pads and not just shorts though. And playing in real games.

The Great Lakes region is less great in your departure. Don’t stray too far.

I actually miss the area, but am enjoying where I’m at now (in the south). Forgot how beastly humid it is down here though.
