At the risk of repeating myself, “A sports news magazine is much like any other magazine. Without some skillfully devised diversity of content the site can become stale, especially in the football offseason.”
Consider these words by Melissa Donavan:
In the world of writing, one form stands out as different from all the rest: poetry.
Writing poetry is not bound by the constraints of sentence and paragraph structures, context, or even grammar.
In the magical world of poetry, you can throw all the rules out the window and create a piece of art, something that is entirely unique.
We’ll post a poem in with the game feed once in a while from our original home site SaintsTailgate.com as I find time. I’ll try to put a link here tomorrow for anyone who id interested in browsing our main poetry section.
If you write poetry and want to contribute, leave me a message here. For now I’ll leave you one about the original legendary Dome Patrol defense of the New Orleans Saints. If you’re a young Saints fan you may not know who the Dome Patrol was, but we’ll fix dat in the future.
This poem was inspired by the memory of the finest group of goal line defenders ever to wear a Saints uniform…
For these men the score was immaterial, there was only a job to do, protect every blade of grass in front of the goal line from intrusion.
“They were the Dome Patrol”
There was a time, there was a day
when savage instincts ruled the field
without mercy did those gladiators play
they gave not ground, nor did they yield…
The turf was their kingdom, was their home…
They guarded it against foes, patrolled the Dome.
