I’m still having a hard time accepting what happened. Five fumbles, three interceptions, and a loss to the Browns. Yikes!
It’s time for our weekly haiku contest, but I don’t think this week’s entries are going to be very nice. Nope, I don’t think they’re going to be nice at all. But the contest must go on.
The contest rules are simple. You must summarize the Steelers-Browns game in a haiku. A haiku is a form of Japanese poetry that contains only 3 lines. The first line has 5 syllables, the second line has 7 syllables, and the third line has 5 syllables. Typically, haiku do not rhyme.
Please note, the emphasis is on syllables, not words. Remember, 5/7/5.
I start the competition by offering a haiku of my own. Then you readers write a haiku of your own to try to beat mine. On Thursday I will announce this week’s contest winner. But remember, your haiku has to be better than mine. If none of your entries are better than mine, then I can declare myself this week’s winner.
Here’s my entry:
Christmas came early for Browns
Gift wrapped turnovers
Okay readers, it’s your turn. Lets see who can come up with the best haiku about the Steelers-Browns game. Your haiku must be about the game, or any other interesting topics that are directly related to the game (e.g. the historic rivalry, Charlie Batch getting the start, the incredible number of turnovers, etc). You may enter the contest as many times as you like.
Any entries that do not follow the 5/7/5 format will be automatically disqualified, so remember to count your syllables.
Are you ready for some haiku?!!
