21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Before the Game

We went to a local football game in our rural area of West Virginia. A tradition here football if BIG and a tradition. It was dark, cold, rainy and wonderful to see the excitement of the players. It is a small area here so no huge crowds but everyone was there because they wanted to be. And many, including my partner, was reliving his past high school football days.
