'Twas the Night of the Draft (2013 Edition)

Well, the draft is upon us and I don't know about you guys, but I'm pretty excited. Tomorrow feels like Christmas Morning! Therefore, in light of tomorrow night's festivities, I thought I'd dust off last year's poem, make some additions, and create a 2013 version --

'Twas the night of the draft and all through the hall,
Not a fan stood silent, time slowed to a crawl
The prospects were seated by the podium with care,
In hopes a new cap would soon graze their hair

The players grew tense, stardom in sight,
With visions of the crowd chanting their name at Met Life
And Jerry sat back, And Tom stood tall,
Hoping a pass rusher would eventually fall

The war room was buzzing, the Big Board was done,
Jerry had looked at every player under the sun
Pick by pick, the night flew by,
I could see studs slipping, I sensed Jerry would get his guy

On Warmack, on Ansah, On Tank, and on Cooper,
On Werner, on Trufant, On Brown, and on Fluker

When out from the den there arose such a cheer,
I ran quickly back to the TV after grabbing a beer
Away to the couch I flew like a flash,
Threw up my feet, it was our pick at last

There was Goodell paper in tow,
Ready to read the Giant's selection, and continue the show
I sprang to my feet, eyes twinkling with fear,
Hoping on stage a tight end wouldn't appear

And then I saw him, cell phone in hand,
He held back a smile, indicating he was our man
I shook my head in disbelief, Jerry had done it again,
Then took a swig of my brew and said, "Welcome to the GMen."
