Super Bowl Wish: Revolutionary IMprov Haiku (GO PACKERS!)

February 5, 2011

My dad (did I mention he and my Grandpa George were at the Ice Bowl?) came on-line on Facebook Instant Messaging the day before the Super Bowl (Packers vs. Steelers). This is my IMprov Haiku to him. (They just had a major blizzard):
I wish I was in /
Wisconsin to watch the Green/
and Gold in packed snow.

OR
in packed bars.

Choices We Make: Revolutionary Email Sonnet

December 26, 2010

Today I faced a choice
of doing something I really wanted to,
but I listened to my inner voice
and elected to not see you.
>
Instead I’ll be with my folks,
probably watching a football game.
It’s really no joke;
It’s not really the same.
>
But my dad and grandpa
went to the NFL’s Ice Bowl.
The greatest game ever they saw;
16 below, in a Green Bay blizzard of snow.
>
The last football game my grandpa would attend.
Sometimes we don’t know how our choices will end.
