[Note by Joel Hollingsworth, 08/29/11 3:42 PM EDT ] Congratulations. Y'all have saved the Haiku.
It seems like we've been doing the Hail Mary Haiku around here for decades, which it probably is if blog years are like dog years. We kicked around the idea of retiring it this season, but instead, I thought we'd sort of split the difference and just relegate them to the FanPosts. So have at it. If participating dwindles, we'll put the sucker out to pasture. Only you can save the HMH.
Here's the concept for those new to RTT this season: You're behind by four at midfield. Only one second remains on the clock, and you have to heave the ball into a mass of players in the end zone and hope that by some miracle one of your guys comes down with it. Bonus points for actually observing the traditional 5-7-5 format for haikus, but free form haikus are allowed. This is, after all, a desperation play. Like most desperation plays, it will most often be quite ugly, but that's okay. Heave away.
