Fall sports 2020 were unique
Fall sports 2021 are shrouded in mystique
Seasons and rules were changed often
Champions were named to make the blow soften.
Welcome everyone to Fall Sports 2021
Where there are games to be played and to be won
Whether we enjoy baseball or football
Perhaps for some it is hockey or basketball.
Now fall sports are back for all to see
Cheering for our favorite team is the way to be
Whether we watch on TV or live sitting in the stands
Staring at the ball or puck to see where it lands.
Baseball now competing in their playoff season
While basketball and hockey are in the exhibition season
Football have played a few of their games
With many players injured with a variety of pains.
Most players pushing ahead with all their might
Never give up and continue their fight
Keeping up by maintaining their paces
With blood and sweat all over their faces.
All of the schedules are very long
Some of the teams have gone very wrong
Athletes compete for many a reason
There is hope for a better next season.
