Jack Eaton, "The Bard of Union Avenue," stopped by the Action News 5 studios Friday night to deliver this poem...
Ode to the Tigers and Whats Their Name
by Jack Eaton
The U of M will win, the Tigers will roar
If Joey Dorsey plays both ends of the floor.
It takes a team like Tennessee
To show him just how good he can be.
Then there's CDR-Great Caesar's Ghost
He'll knock the Vols from pillar to post.
The kid is a stud so here's what I say
Give him the ball and get out of his way.
And the Tiger fans they can help out boys
By making one whole heck of a lot of noise.
As for me, I'll get my nose out of joint
If we don't beat 'em by at least 30 point(s)
So as Coach Cal accepts the cheers of the crowd
As Coach Murphy would say-he did hisself proud.
Go Tigers Go!
