An “It’s Opening NFL Sunday” Limerick

It is that day that America has been waiting for. It is the opening Sunday of the NFL season. It’s been seven months since the Super Bowl. The NFL held it’s annual draft. The free agency period got the fans excited. Training camp and the exhibition games have come and gone. It’s SHOWTIME.

NFL football is a game and it is a multi-billion dollar business. The league owns its own television network. The networks pay $20 billion for the broadcast rights and the cost of putting a game on television for the networks is million per game. It is park your rear end on the sofa bright and early for the Sunday morning pre-game shows and see what the experts and ex-players have to say about todays games, not that we haven’t been watching the sports networks since the final gun went off at last seasons Super Bowl. What will Frank Caliendo come up with to kick off the season?

And what will the game predictions be? Gambling on NFL football is a multi-billion industry unto itself with Nevada casino gambling, offshore gambling, local book maker gambling and fantasy football. It is the game with the most action in every sense of the word.

They gave us a taste on Thursday night with an opening game. But today is THE DAY.

It’s superstitions
Game day traditions
Tailgate grills
Highlight show thrills
Fantasy league stars
Watching games in sports bars
Wearing team logo gear
Drinking some beer


It’s the first week of the NFL.
For teams and fans, time for show and tell.
Let’s see what you got.
Which teams a “have” or “have not,”
And who’s ready to answer the bell!

Have fun everyone!
