I usually never write about sports but the 2021-2022 NFL season is here and I can't wait to watch my Philadelphia Eagles. Just so you know, I am from Wall Township, New Jersey but my Dad is from the Philadelphia area. I sarcastically tell people that I was brainwashed by my dad when I was a baby so that I would be a Philadelphia sports fan. I love all Philadelphia sports, which is amazing, yet painful all at the same time.
What I love about big sporting events is how they bring people together. I love seeing strangers hug and high five each other. I love how happy parents look when they share great sports moments with their excited kids. I love how team chants erupt spontaneously on the street and on commuter trains.
