So Proud of My Mountaineers!

We won!  Such an exciting game, I couldn't take my eyes away from the TV.  I am so proud of our team!  I found this poem and wanted to share it with all of you.  Enjoy!
Twas the night of the Orange Bowl and throughout the nation
We were the underdogs on every TV and Radio Station
ESPN said we couldn't win,
Clemson would destroy us in the end
Said our guys weren't so great,
... but one didn't know West Virginia was a state ...
The fans were nestled all snug in the stands
Clapping along with the Mountaineer band
With ma in he...r jammies and I in my WVU cap
We settled in for the game, a bowl of chips in my lap
When out on the field there arose such a clatter
I turned up the sound to see what was the matter
Touchdown after Touchdown after Touchdown they scored
10 in all for a 70 score
The QB in charge was so lively and quick
I knew in a moment it was Geno Smith
More rapid than eagles his passes they came,
Then he pointed and scrambled and call them by name
Now Austin! Now Bailey! Now Buie and Alston!
On Cook! On Brown! On Milhouse and Irvin!
Tightrope the side lines and reach for that score,
We make history tonight, no ones done it before!
The coach praised his players, the fans stayed for hours,
Dana still wet from his Gatorade shower.
He turned with a jerk, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, as he strode out of sight,
"The couches are burning in Mo-town tonight!"
