I quickly finished tying my shoe and hopped onto my purple mountain bike and we were off. Logan my brother who I love sometimes,Cassie My best friend, Easton Cassie’s brother,Sawyer Cassie’s brother, Mr. Wychers and I were going to ride our bikes through a trail off in the woods and go to Whistle stop and then cut through town and head to Houseman's. The sky was cloudy and the daylight was being blocked by a thick dark cloud, which looked a lot like a rain cloud.
This story takes place last summer in the month of July, about one week. My family and I went on a trip out west. Our final destination was in South Dakota. We left on a monday morning and I remember my mom was trying to get me up and they almost left without me. Everyone packed their bags in the car but when I was about to put mine in the car I was informed that there was no more room and it had to get tied to the roof. My dad eventually tied it down and off we went. After being in the car for over three hours my little cousin Maddie had to use the bathroom and I was really hungry.
Going up a sports fan in St. Louis was hard at times. While we have the opportunity cheer on three separate teams with the Cardinals, Rams, and Blues. Over the years I fell more in love with the Rams football team. This love came from going to all the home games with my father and grandfather, even when they were away the three of us would still go out to lunch to watch the game together. While this opportunity I had through the Rams created a great boding opportunity for not only my father and I but as well as with my grandfather. After hearing the news that the team was leaving, I became devastated with the owner and the team in general. Then my business education showed me why the owner wanted to move the team, and it finally made sense to me.
In the fall of 2009, my dad picked me up to take me to his house for the weekend. That morning we drove around to his friend’s houses. He spent time with them and I played with their children. My dad was drinking and became drunk. We started to head to his house when the accident happen. This accident forever changed my life. My dad nodded off at the worst possible time and we
About a year ago, my dad got into a a very severe mountain biking accident. My 11 year old brother was with him and he called my mom and I for help. We could tell on the phone that he was panicked and afraid. So I grabbed the first aid kit and we rushed to the car and drove to where they had been riding. When we pulled up to the dirt parking lot we saw my little brother, he was shirtless and waving his arms for us. My mom and I later found out the shirt was used to help control my dads bleeding from the accident. We trekked for over a mile to where my dad was. I prepared my self for the worst because so far we had no details on what had happened, just that it wasn 't good. My mom and I turned a corner on the trail, and saw him. His whole face
I would love to meet Tom Brady in real life. I would love to meet him in Gillette Stadium. He is the starting Quarterback for the New England Patriots, My favorite team. Some people consider him as the Greatest of all time also known as a Goat. He was drafted In the late 6th round of the draft and started as a 2nd string. The starter eventually got injured and he got his starting debut.
Adrenaline pulsing through my body and anxiety filling up in my stomach, I quickly throw on my football gear and head out to the practice field. It’s a nice hot day in Ocala, Florida, with the sun beating down on our necks, we stand side by side in line waiting to be picked to play second, third, or fourth string in a play. Waiting in anticipation, each of us grinding our teeth, watching first string pure athletes colliding against each other like gladiators to have possession of a ball made at one-time of “pig’s skin”. To some people, the game of American football makes no sense, whether it’s the idea of trying to protect a ball or running and passing it to make a goal for your team. People like this, see the concept of football and understand why millions of people love it; but to them the sport is pointless and causes way too many casualties. Coming from the most us who love the sport, it’s not the worry of getting hurt that you mainly
This weekend we get to watch a Detroit Lions game! We’re driving down to the West branch to spend some time with our friends. I can’t wait it’s going to be so much fun!
When we first moved here my mom went to one of the high school football games and was amazed by the spirit of the fans. She then found out that it was because the football team had won the last two games and they are supposed to be a losing team. Also at this time my brothers and I had been telling my mom for years she needed to quit smoking which she had been doing since she was 13. So, we designed a contract. The contract stated that if the Wabash High School football team had a winning season meaning they had to win 5 games that my mother had to quit smoking. This contract was made at the beginning of my eldest brothers freshman year in 2012 and stayed on the wall in our dining room until last year. Our football team won our first 4 games
It was a cold, snowy day. Jakey, Scott and I got ready to go to school. Jakey was 17, I was 14, and scott was 20. Jakey and I had to go to school while our dad was dropping off Scott for a College interview for MIT. We didn’t take the bus that day because of how cold it was at the bus stop, so our dad drove us to school. On the way to school, Jakey and I got into a friendly argument on who would win that nights hockey game. It was The Jets vs Wild game. The Wild were Jakeys favorite team and the Jets were mine. “The Jets are extremely bad, there is no way they will beat the Wild”, he said. The argument got heated and I accidentally kicked the back of my dad seat hard. The roads were extremely icy and we went flying into the ditch. I would regret that moment for the rest of my life. *****
I'm in the car driving toward the high school thinking about nothing except what I'm expected to do today in my game. I have my headphones on and nothing else is phasing me. People could be yelling in my ear and I wouldn't hear them. I'm only focusing on one thing. We all sit outside our locker room with our headphones on waiting for coach to come and unlock the door. Not a single one of us are talking, all of us zoned in with either headphones on or just waiting and watching. When coach comes we get our lower pads on and assemble our uppers to be left in the hallway. Then we go to the basement. We go into room 12 and coach gives us a pep talk.we watch college football pump up videos and then we all go upstairs and put our pads on. Now we have

Around thanksgiving time last year, my grandpa and grandma told my family that we would be going on a trip to the Bahamas. Even better was we were going to the Battle For Atlantis Basketball tournament. This year at the tournament the Wisconsin Badgers were playing. The Wisconsin Badgers are my favorite team. I brought along an autograph ball for the players to sign. When we arrived in the Bahamas the first thing we saw in the airport was the Wisconsin Badgers. We were so ecstatic to see them! There was a gigantic line so we could not get autographs. My family was really depressed.
The above quote is how I would describe my childhood. As children we look up to an adult, a role model, and who knew the adult I looked up to would become my Michigan Hero. When you think of a hero you probably think of a superhero like Batman, but my hero hasn't saved the world, at least not that I know of. In 1985 my Michigan Hero was born, my Uncle Pat. To describe my uncle I quote a passage written by Tom Kenny, "He's not a child but he's childlike, he's not a grown up, he's not a kid, maybe he sounds like an elf on helium, we'll play with it." My uncle has taught me to be the person I am today, and that is why
My dad just woke me up for our big elk hunt that we were going on. He told me to get ready and we would be leaving in a few minutes. Once I got dressed we went to my grandpas and picked him up. We (me my dad and my grandpa) drove in my grandpa's truck, when we got to the airport, we packed our luggage and got on the plane. When we got on the plane, I noticed we were going to Salt Lake City, I asked my dad why, and he said we were going to have to stop their first.
