“Go, go, go!” The mascot cheers.
“Crunch” The grass gets run over by all the people rolling all over it, determined to get the cheese.
The referees discuss the game, making sure it’s fair.
While the girl players get their face covered with hair.
“Woohoo, so close, get the cheese!” a fan in the audience cheers.
Players dodge and cheer, run and fall,
tumble and flip, in order to catch the cheese.
“Thump!” That’s the sound of players falling all over each other.
Then someone says, “oh brother.”
They have just figured out that someone found the cheese.
