|"Super Bowl XLIX" Image from Forbes|
Determination is the key to the kingdom
For when one man falls so does the other
Like dominoes they will tumble to the grave
And there is no angel who can save them
Except for those men next to them called brother
Because in the heat of battle there is a knave
Who will stand out among the shouting crowd
Standing taller than a giant, fearsome and proud.
Bravery withstands even the greatest fathom
For this is a game of wits and toughened ardor
A game men play upon that coliseum and stave
Off against the titans of Olympus for freedom
Yelling and charging, clashing of steely grandeur
Against all odds they fought upon that border
Sweat and blood all over their faces and shroud
For this is the day their victory shined out loud.
