A friend of mine sent me a text today with a bit of a poem regarding his team, the Flames. In response, I created this poem and figured you folks would enjoy it.

Dear Red Wings,

You hail from the Motor City.
Hockeytown, they say.
And I will always support you,
Through every night and day.

They call you the 'Winged Wheel'.
Because around the ice, you fly.
Following in the footsteps of the legends:
Sawchuk, Howe and the greatest, Stevie Y.

A franchise steeped in history,
To which no team can compare
Nothing like hockey night at the Joe,
When octopi fill the air.

You've led me to the championships
and heartbreaks, well there's been more than one.
But, of all the other teams in this league,
Over you, I'd chose none.

And you may be the greatest,
And you may be the best.
And there's no doubt in my mind,
You're better than the rest.

Yet I must endure a lot,
to be a part of the league's greatest show,
but no matter what happens,
You'll hear me yelling "Go Wings Go!"

But you still bring me sadness,
And you still bring me tears.
Hell, the first round of the playoffs
Is one of my biggest fears.

But I know you still want Stanley
To that goal you'll remain true.
And for that, and other reasons,
I'll unconditionally love you.

I'm hoping I can jump in here an help out with the Penguins poetry:

Here's my first crack at it...please jump in and help me out if you can:

Sid's my name and hockey is my game,
The NHL loves me and makes my life cushy,
But underneath it all I'm really a big ...... hmmmmm?

Having trouble finishing this last line <_<
ENJOY THE RIDE

Awww that was good!!!! I like it a lot! ^_^

This verse was one of my favorites. Nice job. :P

But you still bring me sadness,
And you still bring me tears.
Hell, the first round of the playoffs
Is one of my biggest fears.


Go rest high on that mountain, cause son your work on Earth is done. Go to Heaven a'shouting love for the Father and the Son. Ruslan Salei, Brad McCrimmon, Stefan Liv, Pavol Demitra, and the entire Lokomotiv team.

I've always wanted to tell someone their poetry is doggerel, but no ode to the Wings could possibly deserve it.

I give it 51 thumbs up.
