SSM after dark! Some late night sports poetry to send you into your week.

We’ve crowned a new champ, The Lakers have won
LeBron, AD, and the squad made sure The Heat were done
With the win comes the end of the NBA bubble
King James lead the way with a series winning triple double

Huge comeback story in the NFL
Alex Smith is back, that’s a buy, not a sell
Even if his team lost, him being back was a great scene
A rare feel good story for The Washington Football Team

Opposite Alex Smith, poor Dak Prescott
His seasons over, and the ankle’s shot
If you haven’t seen the video, I would suggest not
The pressure on Jerry Jones now has to feel quite hot

Moving on to the MLB
The bracket’s down to four teams to see
Who will take home the World Series Trophy
Since it won’t be The Cubs, it doesn’t matter to me

Sunday State of Mind: September 28th-October 4th

Sunday evening: a time to sit back, reflect on your weekend, and read this week’s SSM.

The NBA Finals is in full swing
The Heat are decimated, The Lakers are getting the ring
It probably was always going to end this way
With only Jimmy Butler for Miami, and LeBron and AD for LA

The MLB playoffs have advanced a round
Only half of the playoff teams are left and still taking the mound
It is a bit sad, that we won’t have a chance
For a Cubs/White Sox World Series, since neither advanced

Russell Wilson continues to be
In this blogger’s opinion, NFL MVP
He balled out again today, carved Miami with a knife and fork
Don’t think we forgot though, he’s still a dork

The big NFL story, another COVID outbreak
Cam Newton tested positive, a sad truth to take
The cases are clearly rising in the NFL
I think we all wish this virus would just go to hell

Sunday State of Mind: July 20th-July 26th

Hello friends…please enjoy this week’s SSM on this beautiful, warm Sunday.

We finally made it, baseball is here
Opening week, a reason to cheer
It’s a whole different ballgame, pardon the pun
No fans in the stands, but watching is still fun

We keep adding sports, here comes the NBA
No more scrimmages, real games start Thursday
Jazz vs. Pels and Clippers vs. Lakers
I’m riding with LeBron and AD, any bet takers?

Big Ten football, hit hard with COVID19 this week
Michigan State and Rutgers quarantining, no leaks
The Spartans and Scarlet Knights, have to get it fixed
If team-wide quarantines keep happening, season’s going to get nixed

The offensive line of the Kansas City Chiefs
Lost their starting right guard, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif
Not only a football player, he’s also a doctor
He’s decided to treat patients, over being a pass & run blocker
