Round nine of the Rocky Top Talk Hail Mary Haiku. Somebody remind me to open this thing up for voting on Thursday morning, okay?
Here's the concept for those new to the game: You're behind by a touchdown or more 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 one of your guys comes down with it. Oh, and bonus points for actually observing the traditional 5-7-5 format for haikus. Free form haikus are allowed, though. This is, after all, a desperation play.
I'll try to post the entries and open up the voting through the poll box on the right sidebar on Thursday morning. Voting will continue through Saturday morning, when I'll post the winner. The winner gets . . . the esteem of his or her peers and the derision of his or her opponents!
