We had a little contest on Twitter last night. Denver Stiffs had given us a “Yellow Skyline” logo Nuggets jersey-shirt to give away, so we hosted a Haiku contest on Twitter during the teams home opener versus the Pistons.
We got some great stuff from people who hit us with poems and the hashtag #NugsHaiku. It wasn’t easy to select a winner among the dozens of entries we received. People are just so gosh darn clever! The Champ, and several runners up, after the jump.
Our winner ….
@countclay nuggets will make run/ In the playoffs one and done/ there I said it son
The use of the phrase “there I said it” put Clay’s entry over the top. But we were sent many other equally clever, funny and creative Haiku:
@powder_addict #nugshaiku Broncos are playing, so I dont give any thought, about basketball @southstands303 Javale is a weird dude / He makes a lot of mistakes / but they say he’s good
@avaujhan Brimming with promise / Young, quick, and constant tease / how long ’til they please @southstands303 Manimal looks mean / but I’ll bet he’s super nice / when he’s not playing @SCrociata Birdman bid farewell/ Now he’s just a tale we tell/ Fake tattoos still sell
@avaujhan Miller and McGee / An odd pair indeed, although / lob city they breed @CombatChuk The Denver Nuggets/don’t like to play good defense/But can score a lot @OpieGoneMad you know what I’m sayin’/you know what I’m sayin’/you know what I’m sayin’ @M1LEHIGHRAIDER Iggy and JaVale/ wearing new jerseys and shoes / I want one too @avaujhan Strengths: scoring and speed / Weaknesses: defense indeed, / not to mention threes @already27 birdman stared at kids/ Carmelo traded to Knicks/ Nuggets will still win! @zachfoggsports Expectations high. Slow start looks ugly as sin. George Karl looks annoyed @powder_addict legalized weed may, help the nuggets attract some, top shelf free agents
