For the first time, Prep Rally is attempting to solicit your best poetry. We know we know, this is far too ambitious. That not withstanding, we want to hear your best haikus related to high school sports.

Each week we'll try to introduce a new haiku -- the Japanese form of short poetry formed by lining up a phrase with five syllables followed by a phrase with seven syllables and another with five syllables -- that centers around some news event from the prior week. Then we'll ask you for your best haikus. All of the best entries will be posted the following week on a Thursday-to-Thursday basis.

If you want more instructions about how to write your own haiku, check out this site.

To kick us off we'll start with something general. And remember: Just because it's poetry doesn't mean it can't be fun.

Football fans rejoice
Tackles, touchdowns, pure bedlam
Calm at the whistle
