2006 Ti-Cat Haiku Contest! (Shakespeare is so 2005)

Last year we had a little contest at this time of year in which people re-wrote bits of Shakespeare for football.

This year, to open it up to more people, I suggest a Haiku contest- that Japanese poetry style that doesn't rhyme and is always 3 lines with almost always a structure of 5-7-5 syllables.

What follows WON'T be my entries if this takes off but here are some samples.

On Saturday night
The Argos take to the field
Large cats smell fresh meat

or describing the offence from the early games

Fly ball- Left and right
Straight and true along scrimmage.
Why not pass downfield ?

If you like this idea- please enter or bump it until you are ready to do so.

Maas can't do it all
He needs lots of help up front
Will this be the week?

Week ..weak effort...

At the five yard line
In 1971
The Argos fumbled

festering with boils and welts
they will bust like Allen's finger.

(17 anyway)


toronto argos
stinking out the joint this year
and they still $uck big


The apparition of these faces in the crowd;
Petals on a wet black bough.

(no wait - that's Ezra Pound)

Box J, Ivor Wynne,
Pigskin Pete pumps his bowler,
Surging with the tide.

Oskee wee wee

Since we may not have Holmes, here's how I see our priority against Toronto this week:

The offensive line
Holds the key to Ranek's gains
Dictating scrimmage

Tomorrow's the night
Leave it on the field now guys
Or the airlift comes

Cheered for the 'Cats,
Appeared on the Stern show
“riding” that jelly.

Radlein runs and blocks
Hitchcock can make the big hit
Ti-cats win the game!!

Life is not important
Football is
Winning is everything
Not the only thing.

Tomorrow is the day
The Argos will lose
Cats wont be last place

Oskee wee wee!
Oskee waa waa!
Holy mackinaw!
Tigers eat’em RAW!


No-one blows like an argo
argos su*k
argonaut blood tastes the best

(hmmm 7-3-7 just like they done taught us in skool)

Ballard Cup on line
Sellout crowd wants payback now
Eat 'Em Raw Tigers!


Sorry -- my syllable counting almost needed a video review... LOL

Oski Wee Wee,

That HAS to be the honourable mention! :wink:
