(Quatrains with refrain)
When season’s high expectations
Are summarily dashed,
And yesterday’s football standings
Are practically dashed.
‘Cause the Vikings are letting me down.
You think back to dreams of the start,
As the changes were made,
When the future looked off the chart,
Planning our victory parade,
But the Vikings are letting me down.
Now, zero wins with three losses,
Is not what most fans thought.
From the frequent errant tosses,
Runners easily caught,
Means the Vikings are letting me down.
It is not the end of the world,
But that’s why the boos got hurled
When Ponder failed to score,
As the Vikings are letting me down.
Fans all hope to turn it around
To win a game or two.
So far it’s a sad sound
The purple are making me blue.
Yup, the Vikings are letting me down.
In a bad mood today!
After a 10 win, 6 loss season and getting into the playoffs last season. The team made a number of changes to improve the team. So, expectations were high at the start of this season. Superbowl expectations.
Christian Ponder is the Minnesota Vikings Quarterback.
