Charlotte’s Back in the Playoffs: A Poem

For the very first time since two thousand and ten,

The Bobcats are playoff bound, and I’m no comedian.

Thanks to great play from Big Al time and again,

Charlotte’s back in the playoffs, check E.S.P.N.


They clinched it last night, beating the Cavs by two,

Ninety-six to ninety-four, needed overtime too.

Kyrie dropped forty-four, he did all he could do,

But the better team last night was wearing navy blue.


Last year was a struggle, they won just twenty-one.

Big Al signed in the summer though, and dreams they’d begun,

And right from the start things were different; they were fun.

Maybe someday soon, Charlotte’ll have their day in the sun.
