On the “Hoops” show last week, one of our regular (and most loved) callers – “Raptorized John” – phoned in with a slogan/verse/poem for the Raptors post-season run.
I put John on the spot to come up with something catchy … after his initial attempt on the phone call came up a little bit … uhhh … lame. So John freelance and free-styled on the fly … and he came up with this:
The drive is alive with TJ and Jose
Leading the way
CB4 will kicking in the playoff door
And the Slovenian mountain man in the middle;
Yo can u see A.P for three?
Look up; can that be “Apollo 33″?
Sam will be styling and he won’t be frowning ’cause …
Bargnani hit a three from the foot of Sicily!
There ya go folks. Love it or Hate it … that’s the battle-cry for the post-season from “Raptorized John”.
Not bad for free-styling! Better than I could have done!
I said I’d publish his “poem” in my blog. I’m a man of my word. But this may be the first and last time I open up this space for poetic commentary :)
