According to Joe
Tripping out on football fun
Our players' exploits, boy I did cheer
While sitting around drinking beer.
I shouldn't be so self-satisfied
It wasn't I who was being tried.
But I'll go ahead and make a fuss
For pleasures just vicarious
And take a little pleasure trip
To indulge Warrior hero worship
