Top five reasons I love the fall season…

So I’m dedicating this post to the great season of fall.  I LOVE the fall, and here is why…

1. Saturday College Football

I love to wake up on a saturday in the fall knowing that there will be a multitude of college football games on.  My favorite college, of course, is UCLA… but they’re not so much a football powerhouse… but they just might take down USC this year!

 

2. colorful fall leaves

One thing that I love about living in Indiana, and that I especially loved about going to college in Pennsylvania, is that the leaves on all the trees turn brilliant colors.  It is truly breathtakingly beautiful.  My college was on top of a hill… and we used to say that in the fall, the hill looked like a bowl of that cereal TRIX.  I grew up in California where there are mostly evergreen trees… so it was a big deal to me.

 

 

 

3. Back to School sales

This reason is dedicated to my beautiful wife.  Sarah was a teacher (still is… she just teaches a class of one right now) so she LOVED this season because we would pretend like we were in school still and go to wal-mart, target, etc… and stock up on school supplies.  Why?  because it was fun… and they were cheap.  Now our youth ministry does this thing called “schools supplied” where we buy school supplies and donate them to a local elementary school that has students who are in need.  So Sarah and I can still get our “fix” of back to school sales if we want.  🙂

 

 

 

 

4. the World Series

 

 

it is of no surprise to anyone who knows me that one of my favorite sports is baseball.  And the “fall classic” is the best of the best when it comes to baseball.  Sure, there can be a case made against baseball because of all the idiots (yup… I said idiots) who ruined the game with their use of performance enhancing drugs… putting the sport on the same level as WWE wrestling, but I still love the game.  I can’t wait until it gets back to the level of game that it used to be without morons screwing it up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. fall walleye fishing!

I love fishing as it is… especially walleye fishing.  There is just something about the fall that makes walleye fishing better though.  I have caught some of my largest walleye in the month of September.  I have only been fishing 1 time this summer… a tragic waste of my $17 fishing license, but when September comes… LOOK OUT!  It’s walleye fishing time!

 

 

 

 

So those are my top five of the fall…

what are your top five???
