As an immigrant to the United States, I grew up very passionate towards the game of soccer ("futbol" for the rest of the World). Soccer is the top sport in the entire world expect in the U.S., where top sports include football, basketball, baseball, and hockey. Sports I grew to love as well after living in this country for almost 13 years. Sports are not just athletes working together for one common goal, it’s a way of life, from planning your weekends or nights with season tickets to decorating your house, car and even pets.
For as long as I can remember, I have been attending the annual Yankee Steam-Up event held at The New England Wireless and Steam Museum in East Greenwich, Rhode Island. Here, you will find exhibits of working steam engines (several with flywheels larger than 10 feet in diameter) dating back to the mid 1800’s and early 1900’s. These engines were the driving force behind the industrial revolution and allowed factories to be built away from the banks of rivers since they were no longer dependent on water wheels to generate power. One of the major manufacturers of steam engines, the Corliss Steam Engine Company, founded by George H. Corliss, was located nearby in Providence, Rhode Island. The museum displays what is believed to be the only Corliss steam engine which still operates under steam power today.
