Poem #30: City in Sports
I'm not going to mince words. I don't like football. Sports in general, really. I feel there is often too much importance placed upon a game to the detriment of other forms of character development, competition, and entertainment. And don't get me started on sports "scholarships."
That being said, it's been very exciting to see my lovely city, Minneapolis, shine in the glimmer of limelight the spectacle of hosting the Super Bowl has brought. Signs have been affixed all over town, buses have been wrapped in special Super Bowl wrapping, and ESPN has erected a studio stage for recordings that I pass on the way to my bus stop. Even I - living under the proverbial rock when it comes to sports - can't fail to notice the glitz and glam that comes along with the impending occasion.
