Alumnus Football by Grantland Rice

One of the great sports poems of all time by one of the greatest sports writers...

Alumnus football

Grantland Rice

Bill Jones had been the shining star upon his college team.
His tackling was ferocious and his bucking was a dream.
When husky William took the ball beneath his brawny arm
They had two extra men to ring the ambulance alarm.

Bill hit the line and ran the ends like some mad bull amuck.
The other team would shiver when they saw him start to buck.
And when some rival tackler tried to block his dashing pace,
On waking up, he'd ask, "Who drove that truck across my face?"

Bill had the speed-Bill had the weight-Bill never bucked in vain;
From goal to goal he whizzed along while fragments, strewed the plain,
And there had been a standing bet, which no one tried to call,
That he could make his distance through a ten-foot granite wall.

When he wound up his college course each student's heart was sore.
They wept to think bull-throated Bill would sock the line no more.
Not so with William - in his dreams he saw the Field of Fame,
Where he would buck to glory in the swirl of Life's big game.

Sweet are the dreams of college life, before our faith is nicked-
The world is but a cherry tree that's waiting to be picked;
The world is but an open road-until we find, one day,
How far away the goal posts are that called us to the play.

So, with the sheepskin tucked beneath his arm in football style,
Bill put on steam and dashed into the thickest of the pile;
With eyes ablaze he sprinted where the laureled highway led-
When Bill woke up his scalp hung loose and knots adorned his head.

He tried to run the ends of life, but with rib-crushing toss
A rent collector tackled him and threw him for a loss.
And when he switched his course again and dashed into the line
The massive Guard named Failure did a toddle on his spine.

Bill tried to punt out of the rut, but ere he turned the trick
Right Tackle Competition scuttled through and blocked the kick.
And when he tackled at Success in one long, vicious prod
The Fullback Disappointment steered his features in sod.

Bill was no quitter, so he tried a buck in higher gear,
But Left Guard Envy broke it up and stood him on his ear.
Whereat he aimed a forward pass, but in two vicious bounds
Big Center Greed slipped through a hole and rammed him out of bounds.

But one day, when across the Field of Fame the goal seemed dim,
The wise old coach, Experience, came up and spoke to him.
"Oh Boy," he said, "the main point now before you win your bout
Is keep on bucking Failure till you've worn the piker out!"

"And, kid, cut out this fancy stuff - go in there, low and hard;
Just keep your eye upon the ball and plug on, yard by yard,
And more than all, when you are thrown or tumbled with a crack,
Don't sit there whining-hustle up and keep on coming back;

"Keep coming back with all you've got, without an alibi,
If Competition trips you up or lands upon your eye,
Until at last above the din you hear this sentence spilled:
'We might as well let this bird through before we all get killed.'

"You'll find the road is long and rough, with soft spots far apart,
Where only those can make the grade who have the Uphill Heart.
And when they stop you with a thud or halt you with a crack,
Let Courage call the signals as you keep on coming back.

"Keep coming back, and though the world may romp across your spine,
Let every game's end find you still upon the battling line;
For when the One Great Scorer comes to mark against your name,
He writes - not that you won or lost - but how you played the Game."

is there a point to those?

why the old paper?

november 1st is my b-day...

 

What was the point of posting the whole Poem?? 

A link would have been just as good..

 

Prove me wrong but I think there are many religious trippers here. Have you guys even found anything besides the UFO's and the spacebuggy?

 

Prove me wrong and I'll change my mind ;)

don't need to prove sh*t to some random faceless person on the internet....

The last line in the poem is on the mural and sorry just to help the cause I found out what the mural meant we should come together to work on things and the resolution of the original article was bad instead of causing everyone to huntbaround the net its alot easier to add too the evidence pile and make things a bit easier

Why are you so offended? I just asked if you guys have found something besides the UFO's and the spacebuggy. I'm not going to read through 114 pages lol. Religious tripping just means looking for something that's not there. I think that's what you guys are doing. If not, then what have you found? It's just a simple question. No need for any attitude.

Yes, I was offended by being associated with religious fanatics

I never heard that phrase before, sorry

 

Being persistent has nothing to faith.

I get really irate with almost any organized religion

being associated with it is a sleight against my ancestral lineage.

Srry.

Some of us are more than bitter about how religions shaped the world.

 

 

I found something though...

What water tower? And curly I'm messing pal xo

It's cool man i wont cry

 

I'd love to get involved in this all i have to do is the collection stuff and flying school and i'm 100%, obviously the last 2 strangers & freaks what come with what i need to do, only problem is i'm a lazy ****

 

 

Me and the mrs do too, but our main mission story has bugged and we're sitting on 68/69 - so its a full replay for us, which we really don't wanna do (yet)

mine was bugged on one of the epsilon missions, and nothing was bringing it back, R* gave no reply. I started a new game in an empty game save slot thinking if I done epsilon missions there it would show on social club as done. anyways I went back to main game after going through the prologue and saving and within 5 mins the epsilon curser appeared on the map, I don't know if starting new game caused this but its always worth a try.

I leave this thread for a few hours and come back, its full of arguments?

 

Stay on track and ignore trolls, how hard is that?

I see people that have been hear from page one, arguing with trolls..

 

I don't mean to sound rude, but cant you restrain yourself from replying to idiotic comments, that people post?

 

Stick to the threads meaning, we are here to work together and get this done, not sit and argue about religion or whatever the hell is going on right now..

 

If you have nothing nice to say then please, go away..

Go argue somewhere else.

If not then shut up with the immature petty arguing.

Thanks.

Sorry guys but all I see here is a twin of this topic http://gtaforums.com...-chiliad-mural/ just with less pages; same theories and same arguments. I'm closing this one and you can keep it all there.

 

Edit: New topic is here: http://gtaforums.com...aster-egg-hunt/
