These aren’t the first words to be written about you.
Nor are they the best.
But what I hope you learn in time
Is that they stand out among the rest.
Your script or block N,
Your scarlet and cream,
There’s an energy I feel
When I see the team.
Years of heartache but also victory
It’s a privilege to see you on my tv.
Seeing you live is a lot to unload
Even if I’ve only seen you on the road.
One day I’ll walk through those gates
And take in your gameday vibe.
‘Til that day comes I’ll cheer from home
And just enjoy the ride.
Someday hopefully years from now
I’ll finally bow my head.
And in that moment I’ll think back
And hear my sons say “Go Big Red.”
