Ode to Team Moms

Give out a shout
and raise up your glass
For all the team moms
Who serve with such class.

They attend all the meetings
And collect the team fees
Prepare the team roster
And maintain equipment keys.

They come up with a sponsor
And order a team banner
Maintain the team website
In an orderly manner.

They pick up the uniforms
And run the fund raiser
Organize the picture day
like a political campaigner.

They attend every practice
And keep score at the game
Find time to do snack bar
And hope it won’t rain.

The host the team party
And order the trophies
Get a gift for the coaches
Then closing ceremonies.

They’re spouses won’t see them
Until the end of the league
Then they’ll collapse in a heap
From the battlefield fatigue. 

So please take a moment
When she’s too tired to stand
To drop what you’re doing
And give your team mom a hand.
