There he sits, eyes glued to the tube in a hypnotic trance
Chanting like a shaman from 2 centuries ago.
He cries at the other teams advance.

A Marlboro light hangs off of his lips.
Ash falls on his belly.
A remote and Bud-light firmly in his grips,
As he stares at the “tele”.

He shushes his wife.
He shushes his children.
He records the game to replay the rest of his life.
He is a descendant of the Pilgrims.

He proudly wears his idols jersey.
He jumps and shouts as he spills Ruffles on the floor.
Tommorrow he is the church’s clergy.
Tonight he just wants his idol to score.

He curses in his mind at the officials call.
He pushes his Marlboro into the tray,
While never taking his eye off the ball.
This staggering loss has ruined his day.

He cracks open another Bud-light,
And lights a cigarette.
He thought his idol would fight.
He lost the bet.

Sunday morning he goes to church wearing his finest vestment.
He sends up a prayer to the big man upstairs,
“Please help my idol win next weekend,
If you do, I will get on Facebook and give Jesus 1000 shares!”
In the name of the Falcons, the Braves, and ‘Murrica -Fuck yeah!
