Well the Steelers beat the Browns (again). No big surprise there. Now it’s time for this week’s haiku contest.
Each week (okay, maybe not EACH week) we hold a haiku contest. 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.
Last week I did not hold a haiku contest. However, with the Steelers’ impressive win over the Browns, there are lots of storylines to capture in a haiku. Troy Polamalu’s return, Big Ben’s big game, 2 hundred yard receivers, fumbles galore, losses by AFC North opponents, and the Steelers tie for 1st place in the AFC North are just a few of the thoughts that I expect to be reflected in this week’s entries.
Here is my haiku for this week.
The return of Troy
400 yards for Big Ben
1st place here we come
