OVERFLOATER must give out his props, exclaim his respect
for the best quarterback who displayed what I didn't expect
self-depricating to the end, he hammed it up on Saturday Night
Live from New York and much to his many fans' utmost delight
came a United Way commercial where kids he pegged
in the head, in the back, and despite how they begged
on he commanded, "Brown,Razor. Pink, watch the blitz!"
and the audibles and hand signals the kids completely missed
So he shouted in their faces, "Do you want to lose this game?"
and, "Go to the port-a-potty, you suck and you are to blame!"
he sneered at one kid, "I don't even want to look at you."
and after the game he taught them how to steal cars too
Then he became Ted Trimble- refined, college basketball guru
for ESPN, whose 63-2 tournament picks was some Vegas voodoo
As the skit played on, the host had an unusual way of expressing
Texas' first-round tournament exit as "pulling a Peyton Manning."
and Peyton, as Ted, replied, "I don't get it. What are you saying?"
to which Bob said, "his glorious stats equate post-season deflating."
And Ted, as Peyton, got mad, "Peyton Manning is an amazing quarterback."
Citing an example Bob replied, "Yeah,...like this year's Arkansas Razorbacks."
At which everyone but Ted had a good laugh
even the lowly cameramen and studio staff
and Ted stood and stormed off of the set in much dismay
and even my Peyton-hating girlfriend had to honestly say
That was some funny shit
