When you walk outside and a chill runs up your spine because of the cold crisp air, you know it's that time of the year. When you can't wait for Sunday nights, you know it's that time of the year. That's right, it's football season. The second most wonderful time of the year, behind Christmas time of course. And what could be more exciting then going to a football game? Well other than opening up that present and finding that Santa gave you what you've been waiting for all year, nothing. The excitement begins the moment you wake up. Usually you may slowly get out of your bed, not quite ready to tackle the day's events, but today you bounce out of your bed faster than a bullet out of a gun. You can feel it inside of you. It won't let you settle down. You quickly throw on your jeans, a t-shirt, and your favorite jersey, and head out to the living room where you find your dad packing everything up. You look around the room and notice that something is missing. Your brother, that lazy bum is probably still sleeping. You run down into his room and wake him up as fast as you can, because as soon as he's ready you know it's time to leave. After you make sure that he's up and dressed you run back upstairs to let your dad know that everyone is ready, and that it's time to go. Soon it will be time to go, and you just can't wait. Finally, in what seemed like ages, you're on the road. Right next to you driving is your dad. He's got a smile on his face because he can feel the excitement running through you. In the back seat is your lazy brother, sleeping. How could he sleep at a time like this? You can barely breathe; your heart feels like it's ready to explode. You look out your window, and a scattered car here and there. You roll down your window and let the cold crisp air fill your lungs and run through your hair, the cold air burns your nostrils but you can faintly smell the gas from your car. You can't calm down. You're like a time bomb, waiting to explode. After what seemed like eternity, sitting in the car, you see it. Your eyes light up, and look as if they're ready to bulge out of your head. As you get closer you can begin to smell food. You then feel a rumble and a sharp pain in your stomach. The aroma of the food reminds you that you forgot to grab something to eat this morning. That doesn't matter right now; you know soon enough you'll be joining thousands of fans in one of the greatest joys of going to a football game: tailgating. Within minutes you will finally be in the parking lot of the football stadium. Here you are. The stadium, you remain seated for a few moments gazing in awe at the stadium. On the far left you see two large spiral walkways leading up into the stadium. They remind you of curly fries, just much larger. Right in between them is an escalator, which leads to the same destination, just a more direct route. To the right of the spiral walkway, you see a row of trees. Behind them is a row of flags,...
