The rule is upsets

The rule is upsets


Canada’s Sports Poet

– Feb. 15, 2010

Olympic adventures … Vancouver hello,

Swing open your mind to a Rule you should know,

One word that invites a whole mountain of fun,

UPSETS! Gotta know it! Beat downs more than one!

Olympics! The World comes to work winter play,

Drop off some World upsets and then go away.

Upsets! Always worth fascination applause,

For someone or something in some sporting cause.

Race, age, sex, pre-favourites mean nothing at all,

All-in when the Rule of Upsets comes to call.

Ousting a sure winner, replacing the best,

Olympics especially, upsets never rest.

Who-when-where-how-why, each adventurous thought,

Plays havoc with sure bets, sports genius has wrought.

So … Yo! The Olympics! Just never forget,

The old Rule of Upsets! Hello! Wanna bet?
