whats a retriever

thats what i asked my wife she
a retriever
whats that
ive never heard of a name like that
a retriever

a retriever is one who goes and gets things or retrieves them
why would they call themselves the retrievers
after i googled
retrievers definition
thats what it said

i dont understand i told my wife she

so on facebook i saw a friend who posted about how great
the retrievers were doing in basketball
you mean those kids or students or managers that get the balls
after the players shoot them in warm ups
and throws them back to the players

why would they honor those folks on their jerseys

i texted her
whats a retriever
she texted back
in capital letters
if you are texter you know what they means
either she was mad or excited
no !! were seen
no she said
its a golden retriever

now i understand
a marley

our marley we left behind in texas
it was the sweetest best kid loving people loving dog
ive ever seen
he would never ever hurt anyone
it might lick them to death maybe

ive said many times
he is the absolutely best dog ive ever been around

i thought
well this umbc retriever team in the mens ncaa tourney
university of maryland baltimore county
they be my new team
my wife she and i called them
our marley team

they were the 16th seeded team
which means the powers that be thought they were one of the
worst teams in the tourney
they had to play the 1st place team
the worst team has to play the best team
the easy game goes to the best team

marleys team beat the virginia team
the top ranked team in the tourney
not by just a few points
by a lot
beat the stuffings out of them

marley in his new home in texas
would have been proud of his retriever team

last night we watched the second game the marley team
they lost
they played hard
one thing i noticed was how nice they were
like marley
when the other team player was knocked down
fell down
they reached down and picked them up
just like marley would have done

they have this little gnat of a point guard
who was like a little hummingbird flying around
my vote for the best player to watch

they were gracious in defeat
many of the teams or players are not
they acted like you would like your kids to act
be good sportsmen even when losing

marleys team should be proud of what theyve done
they did their team mascot well

you go marleys
