My football team, The Call Boys, has made it to the playoffs in our football league, and it ALL comes down to our performance on Saturday.
OOH...Nerve racking!!! Can someone get me a Xanax???
We were able to finish in 1st place in our division, with a record of 8-2! This is only our second year playing together, so that is quite an accomplishment, if you ask me. Considering last year we were a brand new team and finished in last place with a record of 1-9.
BUT I'm READY to KICK SOME ASS!
So, if you happen to be in Chicago, and want to come out and watch us tomorrow, Please Do! We would REALLY appreciate all your support! For game time & the field location, just send me an email.
And if you are not in Chicago, or are not able to come to the game, then please send positive thoughts and good energy our way!
or...lots of Adderall!
In honor of the occasion, I wrote a poem to the team. (Yes, I often write poems to celebrate special occasions!)
2 Wins Away
by Paul Benjamin
I started the year with no expectation of what we could turn out to be.
But after week one, with a win in our hands, I thought, “Maybe, just maybe…We’ll see…”
Now we’re 2 wins away from that glorious title of conquering Division D
I’m so proud of you all for the hard work you’ve shown, and the squad that you’ve turned out to be!
Winning 8 out of 10 is an excellent turn around from where we finished last year
Who knew that some of you could play so aggressive when you come across looking so Queer…
But, just 2 wins away from that glorious title; I WANT it, it’s ever so near
So let’s focus, be ready and play with a fervor that says, “Yes, we do belong here!”
To the beautiful Call Boys of 2009, there’s just one thing I want you to know
We were happy to honor your wishes this year and find jerseys that didn’t quite glow.
Now, just 2 wins away from that glorious title, Come on Saturday; I’m ready to go!
I loved having y’all on the team and I feel very honored to call you my bro's.
LET'S GO CALL BOYS!!!
