My favorite course I had in the fall semester was Western Civilization History because the instructor, Mr. Kelleher, is very engaging due to how passionate he is about the material.
What is your favorite movie about sports & why?
Rocky IV, because Rocky defeats a boxer who is clearly taking performance enhancing drugs and who has killed his best friend. He does all of this while training in a log cabin in Prussia, during the Cold War.

I would choose Tyler Copen because he seems like someone who knows how to fish.

A sausage and egg McMuffin with a hash brown and orange juice.
