The Best Ride
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

So here we are,  coming to the end of the ride. From March to October, I have been on this incredible roller coaster that has given me everything from the fear screaming drops to the exhilarating peaks and even the breath catching easy section.

It is a ride that may cost me alot of money, but it was so worth it.  It is a ride that even though it left me feeling sick to my stomach, I never wanted to get off.  But I know that this ride puts up its boards and closes for the summer.  I know that when I go past its imposing and impressive walls, I feel a little sad that for now, the ride is closed.

Oh there will be announcements, commentary and improvements made about the ride and its lead up to its opening, but that is a long time away.  And so I must get off this ride for now.  Feeling shaky in my legs, a bit queasy but somehow feeling so excited because I know that the time will come when the boards gets taken down and the doors swing open.

I will be there at the front, clutching my ticket, forgetting about the ride from last year and bursting out of my skin for the ride to start again.  And I know that everyone on the ride will be feeling the same way.  It doesn't matter that we don't look t he same or agree on what makes this ride so special, we all know that we just love this ride. And we may yell at each other during the ride, but at the end we will all reminisce about how great the ride was.

So for now I will remember the ride that I have had.  Remember the best and the worst bits.  I will remember every little scream, cry, yell, sing of joy even if it rained, hailed or the sun was shining or even how cold it felt.  I will remember.

What is the name of this ride, it's called Australian Rules Football and from March to October I will go on this ride again and again and again, no matter how it makes me feel at the end.  There is no other ride like this and come rain, hail or shine, through win, lose or draw, I will always be one of the greatest fans of this ride.  Finally, have to say it....GO BLUES!
