America’s Game

America’s Game

Hyped by on July 4, 2013 Website: http

When the leaves begin to change, the nights become crisp and cool, children return to school and the days get shorter; after a long, hot summer, vacations and picnics conclude, there is an annual tradition that has become a mainstay in American households everywhere: the longing for the first weekend after Labor Day, and the return of the great game of football.

Distinctly American in every facet of the game, its brutality and successes, its mistakes and consequences have never been more apparent in any other sport played on our hallowed ground as when 11 men line up, preparing to attack 11 men on the other side of the line of scrimmage, in an attempt to push them back, conquer territory that is believed to be rightfully theirs, and perhaps even take possession of the pigskin for their side.
