College Football HOF (subjective)

Upon my arrival at the College Football Hall of Fame ; I walked through the double sliding doors and was greeted by a young lady wearing college football fan attire.  She advised me to register for my all access pass, telling me that it would boost my overall fan experience while I visited . After I finished my registration process I stopped and took a look at the huge wall made from football helmets from every program in the nation and somehow while I was registering they found out the school I was representing which was Georgia State and they had our GSU football helmet lit up so I could see it in the midst of the hundreds of other helmets on the wall. I then proceeded to walk up the flight up stairs to the 1st floor of the museum ;which was filled with memorabilia and trophies from the National Championship , Hiesman , Doak Walker awards. Something that intrigued me was that every time I got close to a screen , highlights and pictures of GSU football started to play because it recognized my badge that was assigned to me at registration; I found this really cool and unique. After I finished looking at all the different trophies and jerseys from college football legends ; I went into the theater room and watch a 15 minute long video  about how each quarter in the game of football translates to different stages in life and how to overcome adversity and deal will all the sudden changes life throws at you. Once the video concludes you exist around a staircase on to the 2nd floor which is how this comes to an end as I only will be using the 1st floor for my BED.

The Varsity

Located at 61 North Avenue NW , The Varsity is legendary to the city of Atlanta. Also the largest drive-in in the 1950’s, with over 100 car hops, The Varsity has maintained its legacy for over 85 years.
Upon my arrival through the rear parking lot, I see multiple workers taking orders outside and cars coming in and out. Red hats moving fast trying to get orders made as quick as possible.Then I proceed to enter the side entrance into the restaurant. As soon as I walk through the doors I see memorabilia of the city of Atlanta:old records, posters of artist and historical figures. I see the booths, and on the tables the sport-red squeeze bottles of ketchup and race- yellow bottles of mustard. Bleach white salt shakers .

I decided to take a seat at one of these booths after ordering my food, So I could examine the place more in depth and from the perspective of a customer eating. There were cocaine white napkins on the table : and of course the sport- red ketchup and race- yellow mustard bottles . Then my food; 2 hot dogs covered in chili-red chili sauce with white diced onions on top and golden-melted cheese, all smudged into 2 perfectly brown buns. In my red “Varsity” logo’d cup; a pitch-black liquid “Coke” and over to the side sat my honey-golden fried onion rings which sat in a white “Varsity” logo’d container. From this point of view I also took notice of the televisions they had playing in the far right corner of the dinning room, in which I sat was a small black box playing the local news (CNN) . I also took notice of the floors painted as a checkerboard black and white with little flickers of granite mixed. If you look you’ll also find a red oval with the writing “The Varsity” inside it .
