The following entry to the “Find Our Editor Dan Seco an EPL Team” Contest comes from Josh McPhail. On originality of the entry alone– I think it is a strong entry. In fact, I’m getting excited about the contest because the entries thus far are very strong. In fact, for the tweeter folks out there- I’d have to say on willingness to write a poem about his favorite football club alone, Josh McPhail of Virginia deserves an instant follow. You can find him @joshMcPhail. I know if I didn’t already follow him, I’d follow him now– that’s for sure.
His poetic argument finds him pointing Dan in the direction of Chelsea FC of London, and it is our first published “Big Four” entry. Sure it can be perceived as weak sauce to choose a Big Four side. Then again, it has its rewards. If you like winning, and most of you do no matter how counter-culture you want to be– there is the security blanket in knowing you’ll win. If you like exciting football, then Chelsea offers that as well. Above all things though, if Dan Seco calls the Die Hard films his favorite movie franchise, then Chelsea, who are owned by the bad guy from Die Hard (little known fact), may be the leader in the clubhouse. Here is Josh’s entry.
You’re looking for a footy team?
There is no other team that will bring you the dream.
We’ve got thrills, excitement, and passion galore
A team that brings so much more
We’re not worried about Ronaldo and all his fashion
We bring it to our fans with all the passion
Some might say were on the bubble
But last year we won the double
Yes we won the league and FA crown
And again this year were not going to be let down
We’ve got great players and talent galore
We’re better than Tottenham, Arsenal and so much more
We hate Man U and all their prima donna’s
Especially their flopping, diving and all their drama
If you want wins and goals galore
We’ll bring you that and so much more
The other team can’t move one yard
Because we have Terry, Drogba and Lampard
There is no other team you need to see
It’s the one and only…CHELSEA!
