"The Game That Changed the Game"
Stanza I. Edward
Believers in Magic
(Also those who would fly like a Bird)
Converged on Salt Lake City
For one game far greater than words.
Not one knew that this game
Would really determine the fate
Of the game that's called B-Ball,
Which till now was stumbling out the gate!
Sing we of Larry Bird and Magic Johnson
Who saved the game of B-Ball!
They'd resurrect the game on that night in the Rockies
'Cos they kept their eyes on the ball!
Stanza II. Angelina
Eighteen million households watched it;
'Twas that big of a game!
Thirty-eight was the share, which
Would put Super Bowls to their shame!
Four and twenty percent
Was the Nielsen of the game,
Which did live up to its billing
And NBC was without blame ‘cos now…
ISU and MSU fought for 40
Minutes of the clock. The points were more
Than many of that very decade’s
Best teams. They’d greatly fought to even score, so…
Stanza III. Terry
Though Bird must not be forgotten,
The Spartans knocked off the top
Team in the land. Even good Larry
Was soon all but shut down and stopped!
But both winner and loser
Both made contributions alike;
The game of B-Ball was back
On TV despite many strikes!
