Wally Hall Remixed

Posted By on Fri, Apr 10, 2009 at 11:10 AM

I know we've been posting a lot of Wally Hall content lately, and although I worry a bit about running that theme into the ground, it's the offseason and pickings are slim. Plus, when I read his column today it had an almost lyrical quality that really jumped out at me...the obvious next step was to rearrange certain lines to form a free verse poem.

So, without further ado, allow me to present a work I call "An Island in a Rocky Sea". It's a little abstract, but also deeply meaningful...if there are any English majors out there, I look forward to reading your interpretations.

"An Island in a Rocky Sea"

It is a learning process.

Football is a game for tough guys.

Some coaches agree but don't do a lot of hitting.

Petrino is not afraid to go for a home run with the long pass, either.

Left tackle is usually a guy on his own. An island in a rocky sea.

The offense is varied so the blocking schemes are too.

That once he did it was like a light came on.

Makes sense.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
