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