Today in Ron Cook Poetry: You Mean the Grass Isn't Greener in Detroit?

By Artistry

If there is one thing Pittsburgh Post Gazette columnist Ron Cook specializes in aside from redundancy and rhetorical questions, it's glorifying role players to the degree that, if you didn't know better, you'd think they were first ballot hall-of-famers.  Today's subject:  Larry Foote of your Pittsburgh Steelers.  According to Cook, Foote learned a profound lesson when he went from the Super Bowl champion Steelers to the perenially sucky Detroit Lions.  Don't go from the Super Bowl champion Steelers to the perenially sucky Detroit Lions.  In any event, he's still a champion.  Here's Today in Ron Cook Poetry.

Aug. 7?
Absolutely.
May 21, 2009?
Of course.
Feb. 1, 2009?
You bet.
Sure.
"Larry Foote did what Larry Foote does."
Point proved.
"The grass isn't always greener on the other side," he said.
There's a lesson there.
That's right, Foote already conveyed it.
The grass isn't always greener ...

Lesson Learned
