I probably will be the only one who will ever post one, but sometimes I have to entertain myself.

There once was a Pacer named Ron,
Who demanded a trade from Boss Don,
Ron really can ball,
Plays D better than all,
But the team sure is glad that he's gone.

There's an All Star forward named Jermaine O'Neal
he averaged around .54 steals
One partner in crime is Fred Jones
All his dunks are bad to the bone
Next is Danger, potential Rookie of the Year
I have no doubt he'll have an amazing career
Those are 3 players of my most favorite team
Winning a championship is all of our dreams

There once was a limerick
About a coach named Carlisle, Rick
Never really understood what it meant
Word up, that's how it went
The last line didn't even rhyme with the first two

01-27-2006, 07:12 PM
There once was a player name Jax,
He shopped for gold chains to relax,
On the court he's a shooter,
His foes he would neuter,
But to refs he would always talk back(s).

Thanks to PacerGurl and Raskolnikov for giving it a try!

We once had a center named Rik,
Very tall, but not very quick.
He shot from outside,
Many points he'd provide,
And my wife thought he'd have a big ...bank account.

01-28-2006, 08:56 AM
There once was a fella named Boyle,
Thoughts of homerism made him recoil.
His comments? They're factful,
His descriptions? Pteradactyl!
Yeah, that one about Rik was a poil! (Or When I heard that my pants I did soil!)

There was a great player named Wilt,
one of his nicknames was "Stilt",
on the court- was a winner,
off the court- loved ''top-spinners'',
(those are ladies petitely built!)

01-28-2006, 11:05 AM
There once was a coach called "Slick",
who grew up as a Terre Haute hick,
Great leader of Pacers,
After beers he'd drink chasers,
and kick a** with a big hockey stick.

01-28-2006, 11:14 AM
Those are great! :applaud:

01-28-2006, 02:54 PM
There is a new Pacer named Pedja,
who just had a sense of vu-deja,
TWICE he heard he was traded
To the Pacers was fated,
Just weird -- like that movie "Fantasia".

(This one is about the trade, then no-trade, then trade-is-on-again concerning Artest and Pedja.)

Pacers Digest is where all the fans
Of the best basketball team in the land
Gather to moan gripe and flame
About Tinsley's last game
And never to give him a hand

There once was a GM named Bird
Who supposedly had the last word
But he's a bump on a log
Walsh is really Top Dog
At least that's what I heard


01-28-2006, 05:44 PM
There's a player named Kobe Bryant,
to his team he isn't reliant,
he takes all the shots,
the good ones, the nots,
'cause his ego is truly giant.

01-28-2006, 05:46 PM
We once had a shooter name Miller
Who was a prodigious hoop filler
He'd screen and he'd shoot
All the fans would say WOOT!
Boy was that guy a thriller!

...and the award for best use of the word "prodigious" in a basketball related limerick goes to...

01-28-2006, 05:52 PM
We drafted a rookie named Granger
He was given the nickname of Danger
He'll soar and he'll block
and come up with the rock
I sure hope that guy's not a stranger

sorry...best I could do on short notice

01-28-2006, 05:52 PM
:worship: :thumbsup: On the Larry Bird = Bump on a log line!
Also good work on using the word "woot".

01-28-2006, 06:09 PM
As a fan I'm kind of bitter,
but I promise I won't be a quitter,
I've spent some big coin,
now Jermaine pops his groin,
And our season is in the shi**er.

01-28-2006, 10:28 PM
We've added a new player to our roster.
He's 6 numbers up from Jeff Foster.
His name starts with a P
We'll help him with D
but we all know he can shoot the 3.

01-28-2006, 10:39 PM
Sarunas Jasikevicius
Ron and Ben are savages
Runi knocks down 3's
Ron's a B
and Ben declines his averages

01-29-2006, 07:23 PM
"We're gamblers," say the brothers Maloof,
"But getting Ron wasn't a goof,
He's not Jack the Ripper!,
Now bring in the strippers!
and pour us some 100 proof!"

I once thought this tread was annoying
I planned on bashing it until I began toying
with different Pacer player names
it was a damn shame
I couldn't think of anything worth soying

I suck.

I really have nothing to say
I guess today is Monday
So, I'm off to the bed
To lay down my head
and dream we play the right way

02-01-2006, 10:52 AM
People use nasty words when they're speakin',
dirty words are what they are seekin',
they'd like to say f***in,
but this board they are stuck in,
so, again and again they say "freakin'.

02-01-2006, 11:08 AM
Chuck Norris, Texas Ranger,
With kickin' a**, he wasn't a stranger,
Bruce Lee fought Jabbar,
An NBA star,
I'd like to see Chuck vs. Granger.

02-01-2006, 11:17 AM
Good writer, that Uncle Buck,
though he is a bit down on his luck,
He loved that Artest,
and now he's depressed,
Seems he might jump in front of a truck.

02-01-2006, 12:48 PM
Peck was in love with Dale Davis
An earful about Dale he gave us
Dale came back to Indy to play
It really made Peck's day
But now he signed with the Pistons, Lord save us

To keep this Pacer related
For hours & hours I debated
Using all of my skill
to use Eddie Gill
My ego is totally deflated

Jose Slaughter
02-01-2006, 04:27 PM
Never one to give in
The first line is where we begin
and then comes the middle
& thou I've said little
This last line is where we must end

02-03-2006, 07:54 PM
Those Pacemates and their grinding actions,
Rolling around, getting crowd reactions,
Dancing and Jumping,
Prancing and Humping,
Cheap seat can't get no satisfaction.

02-06-2006, 02:35 AM
I wish that I lived way back when
When drugs and bellbottoms were in
Oh what can I say
Those ABA days
The banners and trophies we'd win


02-08-2006, 12:24 AM

So, Jonathon Bender is leaving,
Gotta say that I'm really not grieving,
He jumped outa the gym,
'Til his cartilage was slim,
Now in Granger I now am believing.

02-08-2006, 04:41 AM
There once was a team called the Pacers
Who could rip your heart out with the precision of lasers
You take it on the chin
Then come back at it again
For want of a championship, we're all takers



02-09-2006, 03:08 PM
One Davis is all that it took
To get young JB as a rook
He filled us with doubt
And then he peaced out
At least now his pay's off the book

02-09-2006, 03:25 PM
"and then he peaced out" :lol: Fannnnnn-tastic !

There once was a team named the Pacers
They were far from what you'd call the first Placers
But the thing they did best
was get rid of Artest
And now they're at least not disgracers.

02-09-2006, 03:47 PM


I'll have to get back to work.

We have an announcer named Slick
With a nickname or two he is quick
The former St.Johnnie
He just called him Ronnie
The rest of us just call him D*ck

02-09-2006, 03:50 PM

:rotflmao: :applaud:

Truly funny!

02-09-2006, 04:36 PM
Those were all great! :laugh:

When the starters are making Rick scowl
and play like a loosening o' the bowels
our bench's a game changer
With both Saras and Granger
and the Hulk when he doesn't have six fouls.

02-10-2006, 11:06 AM
As the Pacers start to rebound
There is still a team left to be found
That will not get beat by a blow-out
"Help us, mother Mary, help us!", they all shout
As they are getting 'Pacersmashed' to the ground

02-19-2006, 05:23 PM
Jasikevicius told French TV
I'd rather played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, wee wee
For there I'd play the starting point
And run a faster offense, oint oint
Now he's maddened a few people at PD

02-19-2006, 05:29 PM
Dunk Champ of 06
Was from the New York Knicks
He's got some hops so major props
because he jumped over Dunk Champ of 86

02-19-2006, 05:29 PM
Jasikevicius told Belgian TV
I hate those ignorant people at PD
Man, I wish I was discussed at Cavaliersdigest instead
That digest rocks, plus I like bread
Look, here's a picture of Boris Jeltsin and me!
