Twas the Night Before Kickoff

In Nashville, Tennessee

NCAA Football: Wisconsin at Purdue Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

‘Twas the night before kickoff, in every fans house,

Not a fan was sleeping, just ask their spouse;

The jersey’s were hung by the flat screen with care,

In hopes that the Boilers would win the afair;

The players were nestled all snug in their beds,

While visions of touchdowns danced in their heads;

On the Big Ten Network was the Boilermaker chatter,

I sprang to my feet to see what’s the jabber,

What do ya know, another prediction blather,

Lights turned off so the TV a glow,

Did I forget the beer? Damn it, oh no!;

When what to my wondering eyes should appear,

Drug store commercials with sales on beer;

Friends, pizza, and wings, what a day,

Especially the time when Stidham threw the ball away,

As I close my eyes to fall asleep,

tears of joy, I start to weep;

Last thing I look at is the BTN ticker,

Great news about my team started to flicker;

What! With only ten hours to go,

BTN decided to go toe to toe,

With the SEC Network wouldn’t you know,

All of the Boilers laughed, at Finebaum again,

As he chose the Tigers to win,

But little does he know,

Tyler picked us to win,

Go ahead, ask Ohio State how that ended again,

The Music City Bowl will come and go,

The Boilers will be victorious, I know!

Boiler Up!
