Vikings Tarvaris Jackson’s Theme Song
Posted by LOTGK on December 12, 2008
As a Viking fan, although I don’t like him, I am hoping that head coach Brad Childress can pull the team together and guide them to a winning season, to the playoffs, and dare I say it, a Superbowl victory.
This is his third year as head coach, coming off a 6-10 rookie year and an 8-8 second season. So far this year, the Vikings are 8-5 and with a victory Sunday against the Cardinals they will solidify their hold of becoming NFC North champs.
Tarvaris Jackson, unceremoniously benched after week two of this season for his poor performance, stepped back into the spotlight last Sunday in the second half of the Detroit game. Jackson had a stellar performance with a come from behind victory. His stats for the half were 8-10 for 105 yards and a TD pass racking up a 143 quarterback rating.
The planets are aligned. The season is written for success. Great epic stories are on the verge of being shouted atop the mountains about these great marauding Vikings. Many songs wait to be sung out loud of the adventures and victories of these modern day Vikings. The Grassy Knoll Institute offers the first of many songs for the Vikings 2008 season.
Sung To The Traditional Irish Tune, Danny Boy.
Oh Jackson boy, the Vikes, the Vikes are playing,
From turf to grass, and through the NFL.
The summer’s gone and all the plays are counting,
‘Tis you, ’tis you must play and I must cheer.
But come ye back when the game is on the line,
Or when the field is hushed and white with snow.
‘Tis I’ll be here in shadow or in sunshine,
O Jackson boy, O Jackson boy, we love you so.
But if ye gaze and Rice and Bernard are covered,
If you get blitzed, and blitzed you well may be.
You’ll see and find A.P. in the open,
And pass a winning TD there for me.
And you shall feel, though slow, the media turn,
And all the wins shall warmer, sweeter be.
For you will grow and seek for what we all yearn,
And I will cheer and wait until we win it all.
LURKING ON THE GRASSY KNOLL
