The Day the Sports World Stood Still

The fields lay fallow. The grass stands stout. Quiet crashes down, up and throughout stadiums like a tsunami, a tidal wave silence.

No scores.

No statistics.

No winners.

No losers.

A 24-hour self-imposed moratorium on competition. Allowing old wounds to heal, and youthful spirits refreshen.

Until tomorrow, when the games begin again anew. With a renewed purpose, a clearer mission. To entertain and distract. Thrill and anger. Joy and sadness.

The emotion of sports takes a well deserved timeout. Clearing minds. Filling hearts. Returning soon.
