After Ray Rice dubbed his now infamous 4th-and-29-play “Hey Diddle Diddle Ray Rice Up The Middle,” we thought it’d be fun to parody some other iconic nursery rhymes to tell the best stories of Week 12. Check out the list below:
Hickory Dickory Dock – Mark Sanchez’s Memorable Thanksgiving Fumble
Hickory Dickory Dock,
Mark Sanchez ran into his block,
And fumbled the ball
On a botched play call,
Is Tebow Time on the clock?
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star – Dallas Cowboys’ Playoff Chances
Twinkle twinkle little stars,
How we wonder who you are.
Expectations oh so high,
Though your record doesn’t lie.
Will you be playoff bound,
Or will your hopes crash to the ground?
Twinkle, twinkle little stars,
We still don’t know who you are.
Mary Had A Little Lamb – Andy Dalton Keeps The Bengals Playoff Hopes Alive
Cincy has an Andy Dalton, whose hair is red as fire;
And everywhere that Cincy goes, Dalton does not tire.
He fires passes to A.J. Green, even if the coverage is tight.
Together Dalton and Green are keeping Cincy in the playoff fight.
Rain, Rain Go Away – Colin Kaepernick Replaces Alex Smith
Colin Colin go away,
Come again another day.
Alex Smith wants to play!
Itsy Bitsy Spider – Eli Manning and the Giants Rout the Packers
The Itsy Bitsy Manning erased all the doubt.
He threw three touchdown passes, and led a Giants rout.
Out came the pass rush, to add to Green Bay’s pain.
Now the Itsy Bitsy Manning is up on top again.
