Popular Culture Some people would say that pop culture has heavily influenced art on society today and has influenced people since the beginning of time. Pop culture is anything having to do with things that are popular in our society. As a child I can remember waking up every Saturday morning to catch my favorite TV show or going out on Sundays to grab some pizza and watch my favorite sports team play. My family was always into music so luckily as I was hitting my teen years I was able to watch some of my favorite bands with my parents.

Besides playing, I also have always been interested in watching sports. It all started when I was a kid and would watch the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco Giants games every week with my dad. It was something I always looked forward to every week since my dad worked a lot and I did not get to see him much. The most recent way that sports has affected me is through fantasy football.
