I’ve grown a love of reading American history after delving into the riveting and absolutely fascinating nonfiction book, John Adams, written by two-time Pulitzer-winner, David Mccullough. Recently I finished 1776, which features the story of the crucial year in the Revolutionary War. I tried to read the book two times at first, couldn’t get through it, and then I finally sat my butt down and started to delve into this important period in my country’s history and I was sucked in.
The book was one of the best I’ve read, unsurprisingly, and I quickly discovered the true and courageous spirit of America and why I love the United States so much. After reading the book I actually began to wish someone would remake the Revolutionary War in a movie sort of fashion and low and behold, the History Channel did just that with a three-episode series simply titled, Washington.

Tonight the first of the six great bowls comes on. #11 Florida State plays #6 Michigan and I am so excited. I don’t care who wins but I am hoping for a good game that goes into at least one overtime. I’ve been waiting for weeks for these games to come and now they’re here! Yes!
Tomorrow at 3:00pm #1 Alabama faces off against #4 Washington. I am so ready for this game. I will be routing for Washington to win. Alabama has been so dominant this year that watching them win game after game has been exasperating. Washington has had a weak schedule but I believe they might be the team no one sees coming this year. Let’s hope this game ends with the surprise of the football playoff.
Then at 7:00pm #2 Clemson goes against #3 Ohio State. This will probably be a close game. Both of these teams have lost only one game this year, both teams have dynamic quarterbacks, and both teams have had tough times throughout the regular season. I have no idea who will win. It could go either way. I would like Clemson to win so they could get back to the championship and win it all but I wouldn’t mind if Ohio State managed to win.
Then of course on Sunday there’s NFL. This is the last chance for a whole bunch of teams to get their positions in the playoffs. The game I’m most excited to watch is the Sunday Night game where the Green Bay Packers play the Detroit Lions. Whoever wins this game is going to the playoffs. I really would love it if the Packers won. Aaron Rodgers is my favorite quarterback in the NFL and he had a tough time for the first half of the season. If they win I will be so happy because who doesn’t want to watch the Packers in the playoffs?
So the time has finally come! This Monday the college football championship and NFL playoffs will be set. I can’t wait to see what happens.
