Pre-Big-Game Haiku

Tired, so tired
Take the taste out of my mouth
By roasting weenies.

Ordinarily
Running backs, not cornerbacks
Are ankle breakers.

Which Kevin Hogan
Do we see on Saturday?
Salvage the season.

We're leaving Las Vegas
On Sunday 12/21
Victory in hand.

Farm will rise again
Team's reach should exceed grasp or
What's the Rose Bowl for?
Jeff Suto

Irrelevant Game
Two losers, pitched in battle
Back to normalcy.

Would it be mean to write a haiku about Josh Shaw?

"USC cornerback Josh Shaw admitted to school officials that he had fabricated a story about rescuing a nephew from drowning and lied about how he suffered ankle injuries, the school announced Wednesday." —Los Angeles Times

Yes, it is mean, but
What would Manti Te'o do?
College kids f up.
Gary Tyrrell

Ordinarily
Running backs, not cornerbacks
Are ankle breakers.

Big Game Week Haiku

Expectations kill
A disappointing season?
With just two losses?
We Bow to No Man

One hundred sixteenth:
More than a century of
Stanford dominance.
Gary Tyrrell

Take care of weenies
Hope for series of upsets
Alamo not bad.
We Bow to No Man

Traditional foes,
One puts sport ahead of class,
The other's bowl bound.

Give 'em the Axe! Where?
(Many choices...one is clear)
Right in the neck! There!
Scott DeBarger

"U.C. Berkeley"
Five syllables? Four? Not sure.
The Weenies still suck.

Thoughts on the upcoming Stanford vs. UCLA game.

Jim Mora Junior
Bringing UCLA back
Wants playoffs like Dad.
We Bow to No Man

"UCLA." A
Lot of letters for a school.
Waste of haiku space.

We need to beat them:
UCLA. See? Whole line.
Again: Need to win.

October 12, 2013: Stanford 21, Utah 27

Coach Shaw's forgotten
More football than I will know.
I would have run it.
--Gary T.

Two yards to first down.
You had plenty of time. Twice.
Incomplete passes? Absurd.
--Fake Bill Walsh

October 5, 2013: Stanford 31, Washington 28

Stanford coach on fire
Husky games now death matches
Coach Snark true Trojan.
--We Bow to No Man

False accusation
From Husky Sarkisian
Much more "waahh" than "woof."
--Gary T.

Stanford 34, San Jose State, 13

No scare like last year
No more playing Spartan games?
Sammy wants more dough.
--We Bow to No Man
