Are You Ready for Some Football?

Let’s hear it for rhetorical questions!

Are you ready for some football?
Is Pope Francis Catholic?
Do the Packers hate the Seahawks?
Does a candle have a wick?

Will Obama’s hair turn grayer?
Does Las Vegas still have slots?
Are the Mariners still hopeful?
Do da Bears fans love their brats?

Are the following true statements?
Denver’s bent on sweet revenge.
Richard Sherman has an ego.
Tailgate drinkers tend to binge.

Well, I guess you know the answers.
Every one calls for a yes.
So it’s clear that some are ready.
But I’m conflicted I confess.

Football is some folks religion.
And it’s really sad and odd
that the Lord’s day is now Game Day
and the pigskin is their god!
