Friday Night in a Small Town

The Counselor is IN:

This weekend is the unofficial start of autumn. In honor of the coming of Fall, I celebated by attending a small town football game. Growing up in a small town, I have spent dozens if not hundreds of Friday nights in the stands cheering for my team. The weather does not change the attendance of pigskin games in a small town.

It was a great night for a football game. The evening started a little warm but by the end of the game the weather was cool like an autumn evening. The grass was beautifully green and perfectly cut. The anticipation of players on both teams poured out with bumping of chest but only one team would leave still undefeated. The crowd stuffed into the stadium with lines building for the flavored delicacies of nachos and pretzels. I was enchanted with nostalgic memories of growing up with the weekly tradition of attending games.

Even though Summer is my favorite season, I do love the arrival of Autumn and small towns hosting Friday night football.
