An Ode To Michael Jordan




A Moose Track

******Here's the deal. I had to write an ode for writing class at school, and I wrote one to Money. Thought I would post it here.******

Dribbling effortlessly down the court
Shooting
Turnaround jump shots perplex opponents
As he puts his best skill to use.
Dunking,
Soaring through the lane to posterize the helpless defender
Passing,
Racking up assists and leading his team to victory,
Defending,
Leaving the offense clueless as to how to beat him.
He makes all elements of the game look easy
A six foot six inch giant
Standing tall and proud
Dark brown skin
With number 23 on his back
He shakes off opponents
Left and right
Like leaves from a tree
He lifts up a team
A league
A city
The greatest basketball player
The world has ever known
He had incredible amounts of skill,
And he was known as one of the hardest workers in the NBA.
Winning championships,
MVP awards,
Defensive awards.
A man who will never be forgotten,
And forever will be
A basketball legend.
Michael Jordan.

Ode to Moose's piece:

This was very well written
And very good
For somebody
Who never saw him play

I did
Because my mom loves me
and basketball

BET 1 Moose 7? What?

both poems were very nice. The last free to air TV basketball that I ever saw was the 99 finals with Timmy D. I saw the Jordan shot live...Dad said it was the most beautiful thing he'd ever seen. That shot... at that point I had to agree with him. So smooth, so...pure.

Bolt in the 100 was awesome, so was Vince in the Dunk Contest.

The Olmpics obviously were amazing, going to the gymnastics, swimming etc.

Moose said...

Thanks BET, and trust me, I pore over the highlight reels and watch the old games. Thanks too, Hursty.

Nice piece Moose, I always wish that I could have seen MJ play live

Moose said...

the baconator said...

Very nice. Not only is Moose an all-star writer, he's also a budding poet! Haha, your teacher'd be crazy to not give you a 100 on this

Eboy said...

89.

Moose said...

Thanks, E. I got a new teacher in da house! B. Long was my first. 89 isn't half bad. And baconator: Thanks, dude.

BET said...

since eboy implemented the use of the number system, i give this piece...............................................................................................................................................................................................................................98, just cause i dont ever give 100 to nobody but strippers

Moose said...

So no grade, BET?

BET said...

Wow..you guys remind me how old I am. But since we are all reminiscing.I remember being about 13, and at that point in time, ESPN was pretty new and only rich kids had cable-I would have to stay up until 11pm every night to watch the local news sports broadcast to see what MJ did every night. I was fortunate enough tobe alive for his whole career. I think the game where he had the flu in '97 playoffs but still scored 38 and the 60 pt game in the Garden were 2 I specifically recall watching with awe.
