Ode to the Red Wings

Rate this topic

10 posts in this topic

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.

Very well written. Good to see someone on LGW has some actual talents.

Can you please write one about the Penguins too? :D

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 <_<

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.

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.
