So, I had so much to say between the game yesterday and the emotional stuff involving Bettis probably leaving ... I had to split it into 2 poems ...



There's a lot of love in Pittsburgh for the man called the Bus
In all his years with the team - he's meant so much to us

He will definitely be missed - that is a fact
Ask anyone in the league - he's a real class act

If you know football at all - you know about him
It's hard to think about the Steelers without him

There is not another one like him - they broke the mold
It's been an honor to have him with the Black & Gold

A backup to Duce then Willie became his role
He even took a pay cut to help accomplish his goal

He's going to Canton but wants to stop at Detroit on the way
And win in his hometown on Superbowl day

"One More Year!" was being chanted by the Heinz Field crowd
63,000 plus - and it was loud

Bettis is a true team player in every sense of the word
And if that was the last thing he heard

And if he decides the wheels on the Bus can no longer go round
What a way to go - what an awesome sound

We love you Jerome - we don't want you to go
That may be something you have to do - we know

Lots of emotions through the years - we've laughed and we've cried
Thanks for the memories, Jerome - it's been a great ride!

Yeah, it might actually make it to the Steelers ...

A lady who posts on the Steelers board is Brett Keisel's aunt ... she asked me if she could use my poems for a scrapbook of memories for him....
