Red, orange, yellow, brown; pumpkins, candied apples, sweaters, crisp air.

Tailgates, barbeque, chanting, partying, team colors, fantasy football, rivalries.
Football has a way of bringing people together to celebrate their teams but also creates rivalries. In college football one of the biggest rivalries is Ohio State vs. Michigan State that has been around for decades and in the NFL one big rivalry is the Washington Redskins vs. Dallas Cowboys. Over time football has become the new favorite past time for US citizens and is only found in the US. In a way because of that, it makes football all the more special to those who live and breath the sport.
