Rivalries makes watching football so much more fun. Everyone's favorite team always has their one rivalry game every year. A good example of a huge rivalry is the Iron Bowl. The Iron Bowl is when Alabama and Auburn play each other. This is a huge game everyone looks toward to every year. Without big rivalries games, football season would not be the same.

Rivalries games usually brings families together. They get together and cook to watch the big game. In most families, everyone does not cheer for the same team. In my own personal family, some people cheer for Alabama and some cheer for Auburn. During the Iron Bowl, it creates a better atmosphere for a family gathering because everyone wants their team to win.

There is nothing like getting to watch your favorite team in person. Everyone loves going to football games. The crowd and the energy in the stadium could never compare to anything. Listening to the band play for every touchdown and first downs makes the experience of watching the game even better. The atmosphere of a football stadium always makes watching the game even better.

Being able to watch the plays live action make you feel like you are not missing anything. When you go to the game, you could possibly even met a player after or watch the cheerleaders. On TV, it does not show the band or cheerleaders. When you are able to watch the band and cheerleaders, it makes the whole experience of the game even better. When you have the chance to go to your favorite teams game, it will be a experience you will never forget.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
