South Beach Holding a Lebron James Poetry Contest..I’m Serious

True story, back when I was “Young Rob” I had no game with the ladies (not much different than “Old Rob” ironically). I was a bit shy in matters of the heart.

It was hard for me to express myself, but the one way I could was through written words.

I was always good at that.

So when I was 16 and I wanted to date this very pretty junior in my High School, I didn’t ask her directly, I wrote her a poem.

It worked, but 27 minutes into the date I came to the conclusion I liked her better when she didn’t talk, but I digress.

What does this have to do with the Miami Herald holding a poetry contest for people to speak on the greatness that is Lebron?  Nothing, but I just like telling stories.  Here are the details:

The Miami Herald and WLRN is proud to announce a city-wide poetry contest to commemorate the arrival of LeBron James to Miami and the beginning of the 2010-11 Miami Heat basketball season.


* Poem must commemorate the arrival of LeBron James to Miami

* The poem can utilize any form but cannot exceed six lines (LeBron’s jersey is No. 6)

* No limit to the number of poems you can submit

* The entry must be received by Friday, October 22 at 6 p.m.

I have $16252525254343 million bet that Mo Williams is submitting his entry as we speak.
