Vontaze’s Regret

Pittsburgh’s never been my team.
To see the Steelers lose? A dream.
Then Cincinnati’s Bengals came
Unglued, and crudely blew the game.
Now Pittsburgh’s tied with Dallas for
The most post-season wins, and more
Improbable a victory
We’ll wait a lot of years to see.
Immaculate Reception, meet
The Bengals’ single worst defeat,
Which doesn’t have a nickname yet.
Might I suggest Vontaze’s Regret?
