In the spring near the time of graduation, the Saturday sounds around gridiron bleachers are quiet. There are murmurs of those wandering by. There are birds singing and chirping in the air. There is a slight rush of wind whistling through the structures. But silence is the rule.

As light seeps through from under the bleachers, there is a glimpse of bright sun and sky. And the echoes of previous seasons carry on the light. Looking up the stairs, one can hear the echoes of cheers on the blue sky outside. And one becomes aware that while a year has closed, the sporting season never ends. The echo will be given a new voice in a few more months.
