Happy Draft Day BTB!

Out of boredom and anticipation of Thursday's draft (and partially motivated by a couple glasses of scotch) I decided to butcher a classic poem and twist it to my own sick ends, hope you all enjoy, because today begins FOOTBALL CHRISTMAS! I know we all love draft weekend because it is the best chance for us to get better in the long run, and every pick is a potential ray of hope that will help our beloved Cowboys become the best team possible, and return to our winning ways.


Twas the night before the draft, and all thru the house

The only one not working was some weird intern named Krauss

The draft board assembled meticulously with care

In hopes that an impact playmaker soon would be here

All of BTB nestled all snug in their beds

While visions of Barrons, DeCastros, and anyone but Dontari Poe danced in their heads

Jerry all suited up with Stephen and Garrett in tow

Step out of their suite to the war room below

When up at the podium, there arose such a clatter

We all eye Goodell to see what is the matter

Eyes glued to the TV with cold beer in hand

Rodger Goodell slowly makes his way up to the stand

Is it time already? It got here so fast

Ladies and gentlemen, we now open the 2012 Draft

In less time than it takes to light this cigar

The Indianapolis Colts trip over themselves to turn in the first card

Up next the Redskins to grab a franchise quarterback

But we're not scared, because to us, he's just another guy for DeMarcus Ware to sack

The Vikings take Kalil to shore up their line

Then the Browns take Richardson too high, but that's fine

Then on Claiborne, and Blackmon, and Cox and then who?

Everyone looks around to see what the Dolphins will do

In an attempt to try and plant the winning seed

The Dolphins grab Tannehill way too high out of need

Carolina takes Coples and the Bills go with a corner

They grab Stephon Gilmore in very short order

The Chiefs are up next and much to our surprise

They grab Dontari Poe to help shore up their line

The Seahawks up next, and let all be assured

If he's there they'll take Kuechly cuz' he's the best on the board

Only one pick till' us, and the war room erupts

Because no matter who falls he'll be useful to us

In a move that makes sense but some of us might not get

The Cardinals take Floyd to pair opposite of Fitz

The Cowboys now on the clock with a dilemma in hand

Which excellent player will make his home in Cowboys land?

We can't believe this just fell in our lap

DeCastro and Barron, with minimal hit on the cap

Garret closes his eyes, leans back and he thinks

No matter who I choose, we're all going out later for drinks

Both are RKG's, so the decision is hard

But to convert short third downs we grab us a guard

The BTB family erupts with a cheer

Gather round all, grab a friend and a beer

Because offense rules in the NFL today

And an upright QB is the only sure way

To ensure that going forward the star the league will fear

Because DeCastro tomorrow makes his home with us here!
