A look back at the 2021 year in review in sports. Keeping in mind that the 2021 Season for some began in 2020 or concluded in 2022. Granted there are a lot of sports events not included in this review, such as soccer, tennis, golf, college sports, skating, gymnastics, skiing, rock climbing, badminton, ping pong, skeet shooting, double-dutch, cricket, cake eating, stone skipping, just to name a few; instead I’ve decided to only list the Top 5 Professional Sports Leagues that most, this side of the pond, care about.
