A field housing an assortment of numbers;
Names and numbers worn on backs act as markers;
Sometimes, these team sports can bring on great slumbers;
Sometimes, the superstars become the sparkers.
Where exactly will the blame for defeat fall?
Without support, the MVP can’t stand tall.
In combat sports, athletes compete hand-to-hand,
Overcoming the pressure, a win feels grand!
