A Cat Named Boldin


Preface: I realize this is probably not the best venue, but it does relate in a way.

I don't know where he came from

He just showed up one day

One of the many cats we fed

Assumed he was a stray

But he wouldn't leave

Seemed liked a sign

So my wife and I "adopted" him

And brought the kitten inside

Didn't have a name to call him

But for cats- really doesn't matter

Wife left it up to me

But watching football, all I heard was chatter

One Sunday the fuzzball was playing toss-and-catch

While I was watching the game

He could snag the ball, like no one else

So I decided Boldin would be his name

He was there with me

Laying on the back of the couch

Snagging pieces of sandwiches, hot dogs

Boldin wasn't a slouch

When Larry caught the Super bowl pass

He was the first one I hugged

He shouldn't have been that close

But the back of the couch he loved

He sat through the Anderson year

And I could sense his frustration

If Leinart hadn't been cut, he purred

The season would come to fruition

Then came the Kolb trade

And I asked for his opinion

He rolled on his back and meowed

Yep, I agreed - Worth the millions?

Cards had the 4-0 start

And we couldn't believe it was happening

Yet with all the excitement

Boldin was on the couch napping

But when the season faltered

Boldin wasn't as quick

He seemed to move slower when Whiz was fired

He seemed a little sick

Wasn't sure if it was age

Or he didn't like the moves

He just liked the back of the couch

(But with the Arians hire, he quietly approved)_

And now he's dead

A place by the rose bushes he'll lay

I'll miss Boldin - and the back of the couch

Will never be the same on game day

(With apologies to Jimmy Stewart)
