My quick attempt to keep the Springsteen Skins jingle train going in the bye week - a tale of two halves. Thanks to Rob for giving great feedback on the lyrics.

Redskins fans in the stands booing them with all they had,
No one blamed them at all at the half
In the dumps and getting thumped like Jeb Bush by Trump,
Firing Gruden might be the only salve
Dreaming of bootin Gruden and getting a coach who knew that,
The game is more than half the clock around
Code red must mean play dead, with pink slips shortly ahead -
The season had crashed to the ground
Then they remembered the pretender that Tampa Bay is yeah,
And beat up on these Buccaneers
Dropped the 3rd quarter disorder, and turned into warriors,
Made a necklace from their f***in ears
Kirk Cousins put up two dozen and the stadium was a buzzin,
On the verge of an historic comeback
When Kirk first came out throwing, Tony said that it's not over,
He remembers that he said that

Now we are blinded by pyrite
Caught up like some chumps
With some fool's gold in the bye
Blinded by pyrite
Liz'll break it down and tell us what's right, she's gonna set us all right

Parody of "Blinded by the Light" by Bruce Springsteen

The wordplay is meticulous - and too short! And using Pyrite? Too hip for the room!

i thought of you today, John, and how barren the site felt without one of your Monday morning jingles. but Jason has given us a Tuesday jingle, and like Brad a couple of weeks ago has also managed to get a nice dig in at the team after a victory.
