‘Twas the Night Before Christmas inside B.C. Place,
A lone pigeon flew in the space.
While the roof stayed closed,
Two questions he posed,
“Didn’t the Caps suck?”
“Hey, didja see the Leos beat Buck?”
Across Griffiths Way,
Where the Canucks do play,
Despite Game 7’s crash,
The brothers Aquilini counted cash.
“Grazie Luongo, Merci Burrows and Tack to the Sedins,
“We kept your bonuses when you played like has-beens!”
Meanwhile uptown at the Nat,
Kerr and Mooney’s wallets grew fat.
Out with the A’s,
In with the Jays!
At the 60-year-old ballpark,
The C’s are league champs, hark!
A year after Olympics, 2011 it was,
Many stories created a buzz.
So after elections, Occupy, and the riot,
Relax and let’s all have peace and quiet.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
