    I really like how you put this because you can learn new things. There are different things to read about, not just one thing.

    I really like how you included so so many different facts! I found it really funny how they were so random. Like how they built a field in the middle of a river? Or that the gold medals are actually silver!? Keep up the good work! I really do like this, and how you do it! Great work!

    I like how you kept this article short and simple, but were still able to give good information. You put amazing facts on this article! It was also nice how you put pictures to go along with it. Good job!

  11. Joshua Watson on April 22nd, 2016 1:37 pm

    I really liked how you centered around a general topic [sports] and I also liked how you showed things that nobody knew or they just assumed like how gold medals are actually silver. I always thought they were actually gold.

  12. Taylor Mayer on April 22nd, 2016 1:42 pm

    I had no idea that referee’s got super bowl rings too. I didn’t know any of the DIY’s. I bet referee’s probably have more rings then the actual players. Those were cool facts though good job.
