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.
