You’ll Never Walk Alone

Apr 14, 2017

Read by Rabbi Neil Blumofe

The hum of excitement,


The tense moments before the kickoff,


The game starts and you’re sitting


In the stands but you feel


The movements of every player,


All our preconceived ideas about each other

Become non-existent


As you meld with the crowd,


The singing, the jeering, the roar


When your side scores a goal—


There is no class distinction


Or racial divide when your team


Takes a shot-- a blissful silence


As the ball hits the back of the net


And the crowd erupts in a deafening boom,

But once that final buzzer sounds,


Whether you won or not,


You’ll never walk alone.
