Give us back Our Game Haiku

As the dark night does from day:
Give us back our game.

In support of the campaign – GIVE US BACK OUR GAME – it’s easy to forget that sport is supposed to be about fun; I can’t be bothered to check the etymology of the verb “to sport” but at this rate it’s going to evolve from something like ” having fun through play and a break from customary reality” to “experiencing a paradoxical combination of boredom and anxiety through a weekly 90 minutes of competitive business”.
