ALIVE AND KICKING: An Ode to David Akers and the former Eagle’s NFL record-setting field goal

There once was a kicker named Akers,
the leader of long field goal makers.
He put on a show
Week One at Lambeau.
His 63 yards?  Record breakers.

Dave Akers once had a bad day,
as an Eagle versus Green Bay.
With two playoff misses,
he earned goodbye kisses
and settled in San Fran to play.

 But Eagles fans, many a whiner,
still claim they’ve seen no player finer
than the kicking machine
who once wore midnight green
and now makes history as a ‘Niner.

There once was a team from Green Bay
that turned three Pittsburgh giveaways
into 21 points,
and the whole league annoints
Aaron Rodgers for his great play.

Rodgers finished three touchdown drives
to win Super Bowl 45.
The Packers’ defense
maintained an immense
pressure on the Steelers to thrive.

Green Bay clinched title number four.
Only three other teams won more.
Now with the Lombardi,
the Packers can party
behind this season’s now-closed door.

The teams from Pittsburgh and Green Bay
will meet on Super Bowl Sunday.
Both teams are old,
and each wears gold,
and are heading Dallas’ way.

The Packers won the NFC
behind a hot-handed QB.
Aaron Rodgers’ legend blares,
beting two birds and the Bears
in pursuit of a Lombardi.

Meanwhile, in the Steel City,
the Steelers won, playing gritty.
They came back on the Ravens
and gave the Jets no havens —
an AFC title ditty.
