  • Dick Enberg Of Nbc Sports Once Said, The Super Bowl Has Come To Represent The Sport Pinnacle Of Modern Society, The Place - 537 words
    Dick Enberg of NBC sports once said, "The Super Bowl has come to represent the sport pinnacle of modern society, the place which young men reach for footballs and sometimes catch a piece of immorality on the way." For a full 12 months a year, 30 teams of the NFL practice all for one day in January. Every phase of every team operation is focused on a single goal "the world championship of professional football". Over 1800 men have participated in this special day. Jeff Kaye of NFL films said, "This game has become America's biggest one day sporting event. One play follows a player the rest of his life." On Super Bowl Sunday you will experience distinctive mood experienced by virtually everyon ...

  • Advertising: What Images Can Be Used - 838 words
    Advertising: What Images Can Be Used The largest money-making industry in the United States today is advertising. During events such as the Super Bowl, companies pay large sums of money in return for thirty seconds of air time. Advertising is the act of promoting a product by informing the public of the products worth. Whether it be television, radio, or newspapers, companies must find a distinct name and phrase that one can associate with their product; nonetheless, people often take offense to these names and phrases. People claim that often times these product names promote racial stereotypes and racial disunity. While some people may take offense to the name of the product as well as the ...

  • Baseball Vs Football - 1,050 words
    Baseball Vs. Football Baseball vs. Football: Which Is The True American Pastime? In today's world of big time professional sports there are the two major players and they are football represented by the National Football League (NFL) and baseball represented by Major League Baseball (MLB). Now there are other sports that the American public enjoys watching, however the argument generally boils down to which sport is the true favorite of the American people: baseball or football. In this paper I will attempt to examine both sports from several different angles to include attendance, television revenue, ticket costs, venues, salaries, entertainment value, and athlete perception. The goal of th ...

    ... rk in Boston and was built in 1912 and the oldest venue in the NFL is Soldier Field in Chicago and was built in 1924. I have visited both venues and will admit that there is something special about sitting in a stadium that was built 80 or 90 years ago and thinking about all the great players that have played there. I believe the evidence supports the argument that the NFL venues are truly larger and louder whereas MLB ballparks are known for their history. Player salaries are often claimed by team owner to be the single largest factor in the decision to raise ticket prices. Player salaries are now so large that the American public cannot even make a comparison. The average player salary ...

  • Character Of Sammy In John Updikes Ap - 627 words
    Character Of Sammy In John UpdikeS A&P Sammy: Hero or Anti-Hero There are two types of heroes; heroes and anti-heroes. A person noted for feats of courage or nobility of purpose, especially one who has risked or sacrificed his or her life is a hero. Similar to Martin Luther King, John F. Kennedy, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln and Jesus. A main character in a dramatic or narrative work that is characterized by a lack of traditional heroic qualities, such as idealism or courage is an anti-hero. I believe this resembles our character Sammy in John Updikes short story A&P. Sammy is an anti-hero because he is an ordinary person who is directionless, and perplex. Updike begins the story w ...

  • Choking In Sports - 1,376 words
    Choking In Sports I was sitting in my chair in my room watching a college football game on ESPN2, and I was looking for a topic for my report. I knew it would have to do with sports in some way. As I was watching the game, I realized that this game was getting interesting. A unranked, unknown team was beating a ranked team with a whole lot of talent. The game was getting close and before I knew it there was only 7 second left in the game. The unranked team had the ball at their opponents 25 yard line and were inning up for a field goal. There kicker was going to be a pro soon and was automatic. He made three field goals already that game. He was inning for what seemed like an easy field goal ...

  • Christianity Crisis - 2,306 words
    Christianity Crisis There was a time, not long ago, when the evangelical community had considerable consensus on lifestyle questions and social issues. We generally agreed on what we should eat and drink and how we might spend our weekends. There was little debate over definitions of vulgarity or morality, and questions of fashion were rarely a matter for discussion. In those days, everyone knew how a family should be raised, and aberrations such as divorce and abortion were simply that: problems found only among hose outside the fold. All of that has changed. Today there is considerable disagreement on such questions, and where there is not disagreement, there is often a reluctant silence o ...

  • College And Athletes - 1,860 words
    College And Athletes Sports have always been one of American's favorite pastimes. Americans love the thrill of hard competition. College athletics has always been at the heart of this. It has always been something more pure than professional athletics. In recent years college athletics has changed for the worse. Players have drifted away from what it used to mean to play college sports. They have fallen into illegal activities and have left fans disappointed. One of the reasons for this change is the lack of funds for the players. There are many benefits to paying college athletes. In many cases, scholarship athletes are treated differently than academic scholarship recipients. There are unn ...

  • Computers In Our Life - 1,204 words
    Computers In Our Life Could one imagine what the world would be like today without computers? For one, I would not be typing this paper right now. Computers were actually developed in early history. The first major use for a computer in the U.S. was during the 1890 census. Two men, Herman Hollerith and James Powers, developed a new punched-card system that could automatically read information on cards without human intervention (Chaney 52). This caused many other people to develop computers for various tasks. Each new computer helped to perform a different function and make it easier. Eventually IBM made a computer that could perform various tasks such as: figure out equations, store data, a ...

  • Death Penalty - 1,513 words
    Death Penalty During this class period today, seven adult men will be falsely accused of committing a serious crime, carrying a penalty of capital punishment. This means approximately 51,000 adult men are falsely accused of committing serious crimes each year. This figure is roughly the number of people who attended Super Bowl-Thirty-Three. Currently, there are 3,500 people on death row in thirty-eight states that support and carry out the death penalty while only twelve states have outlawed it. At the same time, more than half the countries in the world have abolished the death penalty in law or practice. Capital punishment is very relevant to each member of society. It is not just a male o ...

  • Deeeefense - 1,420 words
    DEEEE-FENSE. And it ended with two astounding victories by the American Football League when the brash Joe Namath helped the New York Jets win Super Bowl III and the powerful Kansas City Chiefs spoiled the NFL's golden anniversary celebration by winning Super Bowl IV, and positioned pro football for its last great realignment. That second quarter century began when the Cleveland Rams found a wonderful tailback at UCLA named Bob Waterfield whose gorgous movie star wife Jane Russell elicited more publicity than he did -- even on the sports pages. Waterfield not only was named NFL rookie of the year in 1945, but he led the Rams to the NFL championsip on the margin of a fluke safety scored when ...

THE GREATEST GAME EVER PLAYED The game, long hailed as the greatest game ever played, because of its impact on the sport, was televised nationally but the Giants-Browns rivalry the previous two weeks had drawn such national attention, thanks to its New York City connection, that millions of viewers tuned in to see what would happen -- and they saw the game of the NFL's life. The game had every element of football drama -- great catches, unbelievable runs, goal line stands, even a cable break that cut off transmissi ...

  • Effects Of Gambling - 1,717 words
    Effects Of Gambling Gambling is prominent in today's society. This can be seen especially through politics. Everywhere voters are electing people to office who are pro gambling. William Thompson of the University of Nevada (1994) describes politicians by stating, "It's part of the American landscape, they'll trade morality for dollars" (1). In North and South Carolina, for example, the last governor election showed that the people were for legal gambling by voting in governors who wanted a lottery. Now in the U.S., 47 states including the District of Columbia have legalized gambling. This increase in gambling is argued to be good for the economy, but there is further proof that it not only h ...

    Ford Motor Company HISTORY Henry Ford was an engineer from Detroit, Michigan who had an idea. By 1902, Ford had attempted several times to produce a gas powered vehicle, but with little capital, he realized that his attempts were futile. Ford approached a man by the name of Alexander T. Malcomson about the possibility of manufacturing an automobile. Malcomson, a friend of the family and wealthy coal merchant was reluctant at first but finally agreed with Ford, and decided to assit Ford financially with his endeavor. With Malcomsons investment and Ford's engineering skills a partnership was formed and in mid June of 1903, papers of incorporation for the Ford Motor Company were filed in Dearbo ...

  • Hero Worshiping - 823 words
    Hero Worshiping When asked to conjure up descriptions of a hero or heroism, many people would imagine similar scenes. The firefighters pulling a family from a burning building, a soldier saving his platoon from certain death, rescue workers pulling a stranded mountain climber from a precarious ledge, and the Knights of the Round Table saving a damsel in distress, are all examples of the "common" hero. Many people display heroism in everyday life but are rarely recognized either by their peers or by the media. Heroism can be traced back in time as early as mythology has been present. People of that era felt a need to worship super-beings who could solve their problems. Current examples reflec ...
