The Game

Excited and anxious I await my dream
To escape, applaud And embrace my team
Opening day I always can trust
It’s just for this high That I crazily lust
Return of our hero Does brighten the days
Just briefly, my troubles Get lost in the haze
The grace from the field Arouses the crowd
Reflects on the days When I was quite proud
I’m more entranced Than the average fan
I used to play, you see And I know I still can
That time I drove the ball With such loft
My exit atop shoulders As they carried me off
This pastime and I Just fade into one
Expanded upon From father and son
My boy is young And awkward for now
I just need the time And can show him how
I really am quite close Just a break away
From straightening things out And being okay
I can help my team To regain its glory
With just a little twist To the same old story
Players say now They play for themselves
This causes a burning Within me that dwells
The fan is the one Who pays for the game
Which bestows all the riches And welcomed fame
The players will listen But really don’t hear
All the while just hiding Behind an invisible tear
I grow tired now of all this greed
And chart a course to set things free
The Fan 1996
Last October 27 was the start date for the 64th chapter of NBA regular season 2009. And the All Star will be held on February 14, 2010. A shouldn’t miss game of all season. Apparently, I don’t have my own favorite team in this game since its pretty hard to sit back at mamak stall on Friday morning to watch the game live on ESPN because they would really change to other channel as this game wasn’t a major interest in my community. I just like to watch a former And1 player that managed to get to NBA 9 years ago and now he is playing for New Jersey Nets as a PG but alas, the team is currently losing all games in the Eastern Conference. Well, lets just wait which teams gets to the final. I put my $10 on Phoenix Suns this season.
