WSU vs. Oregon State football: Sleep-deprived haiku on an impressive first start

New, 7 comments

Football and Haiku Of course they go together Do not be silly

Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports

Sleep deprivation has many side effects. One of which is an inability to think clearly. My fellow CougCenter authors have already written many great things about WSU's win over Oregon State, and when I woke up this morning I struggled to come up with an angle. I did think "well, I could always do poetry."

And after seeing a writer friend of mine tweet this, this column's fate was sealed. So I present to you, in a series of bad haikus, Washington State's 39-32 win over Oregon State. Enjoy.
