Are You Ready for Some Football?_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Let's hear it for rhetorical questions!Are you ready for some football?
Is Pope Francis Catholic?
Do the Packers hate the Seahawks?
Does a candle have a wick?
Will Obama's hair turn grayer?
Does Las Vegas still have slots?
Are the Mariners still hopeful?
Do da Bears fans love their brats?
Are the following true statements?
Denver's bent on sweet revenge.
Richard Sherman has an ego.
Tailgate drinkers tend to binge.
Well, I guess you know the answers.
Every one calls for a yes.
So it's clear that some are ready.
But I'm conflicted I confess.
Football is some folks religion.
And it's really sad and odd
that the Lord's day is now Game Day
and the pigskin is their god!

Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009
Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.
