Observation Assignment For my observation assignment I decided to informally observe people at a flag football tournament held on Saturday November 29, 2014 at Eagle Rock Recreation Center. This tournament was hosted by a church and called “The Vine Turkey Bowl”. It consisted of ten different teams that represented their own church. The tournament was very diverse and there were people from many different ethnicities. This gave me a great sample to observe and to attach the different sociological perspectives to my observation. I personally had a few friends participating in the tournament, which gave me a great opportunity to execute my observation. In this essay I will explain all of my observations and correlate it with a specific sociological perspective that I have learned throughout this course. At approximately 7:10 AM, I arrived at Eagle Rock Recreation center and as soon as I got out of the car, I saw people everywhere. There were people taking their stuff out of the car, people heading down to the fields, and people already setting up their designated areas for their church. For the sake of this assignment I judged the people through the cars they were driving and placed them into upper, middle, and lower class. I judged the people who drove nice cars as middle or upper class and the people who drove the less nice cars into lower class. Everyone had their own appearance, which is the way we physically look to other people. About ten minutes after I arrived I am officially comfortably set up in a perfect area with my notebook out to observe all the things going on. The first thing I observed was four people chalking up the field so that they can create the boundary lines for the field that the teams were going to play on. These people were also setting up cones that marked specific areas on the field. The main role of these people was to create a statistically correct measured field and they were
