We gave it our best.

We hang our heads in total sorrow.

Knowing full well there will be no tomorrow.

We were so strong.

It is hard to comprehend what went wrong.


I know our effort was great.

Our opponents seemed to play at a higher rate.

The outcome makes me want to weep.

There are many great memories I need to keep.


It appeared we had the damn thing won.

We see over there the other side is having all the fun.

We know some fool critics will have their say.

We will close our ears and pray for a better day.


Only one will totally achieve.

The other side will simpley leave.

We competed without fear.

We all know we deserved to be here.
