The Armchair Quarterback Volume 50: Eulogy to Super Bowl LIV

Into Miami they rode heads held high

Shouting, screaming, doing the battle cry

All-white tunics waited for them upon arrival

But as they found out, those were also left for the rival

In their all-white outfits, they roamed about South Beach

As each of them were interviewed and gave a short speech

They deserved to be there as they had knocked off the savages from Wisconsin

And the People’s Tight End got to meet his hero Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

As the game began, all the side stories ended

It was time to play football and it would be splendid

They kept it close all the way to the half

Tied at 10-10 it was not a matter to laugh

The third quarter came, and they took the lead

They negated their opponents’ wit and negated their speed

But the fourth quarter arrived, it took them by storm

The opposing quarterbacks arm started to get warm

It started with one touchdown, then two, and sadly three

How did the sweet taste of victory cease to ever be?

A 10-point lead seemed a thing of the past

Now an 11-point loss was in full mast

The game shocked the players, coaches, and fans sitting on their recliners

If you haven’t figured out by now, I’m speaking about the San Francisco 49ers

But now is not the time to mope, be frustrated, or sad

A new season is on its way and it’s the 49ers to be had

“I will be back here” is not a clue or a riddle

They were words of affirmation from tight end George Kittle

Fans get ready because the 2020 season starts today

And soon enough the Lombardi trophy will be brought back to the Bay
