Happy Valentine's Day From Mountain West Connection

New, comment

Chris and Ben bring the love today...

We here at Mountain West Connection try to show our love for the conference and the readers.  So to emphasize our love, here's some sappy poems and Valentines.

A Collection of Valentine's Day Limericks, Sonnets, and Odes

by Ben Phillips

Narcissus' are gold, is sublime,
Which basically sums up
the point of this rhyme.

I Love You More (to the tune of "There Once Was a Man" from the musical Pajama Game)
There once was a maaan...
Who loved a confereeeence...
MWC is the one he made this website fooor!
They say that nobody ever loved as much as heee...
But meee... I love you mooore!

L-O-V-E (to the tune of "L-O-V-E" by Nat King Cole)
L is for the way you watch MWC TV.
O is for the only conference you see.
V's a conference very extra-ordinary!
E is even more than any other conference you adore.
Yes, love is made for MWC and you!

The Rose... Bowl (to the tune of "The Rose" by Bette Midler)
Some say love... it is a touchdown
that dooms your favorite team.
Some say love... it is a blocked punt
that leaves your soul to bleed.
Some say love... it is the anguish
when your rival takes the lead.
I say love... it's MWCConnection
and your team's latest deeds.

When the night is getting lonely
and no football games are on...
and you think that wins and trophies
only go to the "big boys," 'cause they're just too strong...
Just remember in the winter
far beneath the bitter snow
lies the turf that, with the sun's love
in the fall, brings football and hope!

Ode to MWCConnection (Original creation by Ben Phillips)
I love you more than I love my mom! (just kidding Mom, thanks for reading all my articles! ;D)
I love the way you bring me the news
of football, and b-ball, and which teams to choose,
of recruiting conquests and heartbreaks and stuff,
of bodacious hairdos, and games that get rough.
All of thy blogs, and thy pics and retweets,
and volunteer writers out hitting the beats.
For all that you do and for all that you've done,
you're in my heart always. Mountain West's #1!
