School Sports My editorial is how the seriousness for school related sports has decreased. Sports arenít what they used to be. People who say things like " people are taking these sports too seriously" or " the sports are meant to be fun", I think, should rethink their opinion. Of course, they are taken seriously, that doesnít necessarily mean they arenít fun. Personally I love all of the yelling and confusion that goes on all around sports, whether itís on TV, or the court, or on the field. I
Soccer Soccer is a popular sport played all over the world. Even though it has only been popular in North America for the past 30 years, soccer has been a long time favorite most everywhere else. It is the national sport of most European and Latin-American countries, and of many other nations. Millions of people in more than 140 countries play soccer. The sport dates back to the Egyptians, who played games involving the kicking of a ball. Now, the sport has grown to a global pastime, including
Sports Salaries Most people in America feel that pro athlete\'s salaries are too high. Current sports salaries are reaching astronomical figures. Players are signing 50 million-dollar contracts and up just because they happen to be pretty good at hitting a baseball. Just the other day Kevin Brown signed a contract worth over 100 million! Now pro sports are fun to watch and follow, but college games entertain just as well and they aren\'t receiving a legal penny. Down south, people like college
Stereotypes In Sports People today stereotype skaters and surfers as lazy, no good potheads. I would have to dissagree with that statement. Police harrass skaters for skating in parking lots and on the streets of their towns. It is like the police think that they are going to do more than skate. It is the same with surfers, people think they do not hold jobs, their lazy, and all that they do is smoke pot. Those things are (for the most part) not true. In my paper I will give three examples of p
Violence In Hockey Violence is no stranger to hockey. As if legal body checking and stick checking did not make the sport rough enough, more and more players unleash their rage through extensive violence on the ice. Violence in hockey is what blacklists American players as second class. This is because of the rise of the violence trend throught the eighties and nineties into what is now a bloody and injury filled sport. Violence in hockey is so big that it is even going on trial when, "Wayne Co
Violence In Sports With the increase in society taking a stance against violence by many people, sports has become an area where some feel that the violent acts such as the hitting and fighting that occurs should be eliminated. You can not change something that has been around for so long because it would change the aspect of the game to something completely different. The elimination of violence should not be done in sport because the violence is a part of the game which would only hurt its po
Wayne Gretzky Wayne Gretzky has to one of the greatest if not the best hockey player in the National Hockey Leagues history. He was adored by almost everyone, the exemptions being his opponents.

West Coast Offense We know that football teams, similar to organizations everywhere, improve by going through an evolutionary progression as they learn, apply, adapt, and learn again. Bill Walsh accomplished all these by establishing and mastering the steps involved in that crucial process. No individual in the history of the game is more qualified to put forth such individual guidance. During his illustrious career, Bill Walsh was more than a football coach. In a very real sense he has been an
Wilma Rudolph This report is on Wilma Glodean Rudolph. Wilma was born June 23,1940 in Clarksville, Tennessee. Williamís education is: her mother tutored she until she started school when she was seven. She eventually graduated from the school, went to Tennessee State University and graduated with "flying colors". When Wilma was born she weighed only 4.5 pounds, and was the twentieth of twenty-two children! Since than she was nursed by her mother until she was seven. She was sick all the time. S
Wilt Chamberlain There have been many greats to play the game basketball, but we have never, and maybe never again, see the likes of Wilt Chamberlain. His entire life Wilt Chamberlain made the improbable look routine. No professional athlete in any team sport combined the size, strength, and fluidity of movement that Wilt Chamberlain brought into the sleepy, dimly lit NBA arenas of 1959. IĻll go one step further: No one who has played pro team sports has ever dominated every minute of every gam
Women In Men\'s Sports Should women be allowed to play on male sports teams?

Neither is superior, however, the differences between a man and a woman could affect how they participate in competitive sports. I. Introductory Paragraph: Use examples of differences/s

These lands are where the Ancient Greeks resided, and developed the art of wrestling. The Greeks influenced the styles and skills of wrestling of today. "The sport of wrestling has been highly developed for over five thousand years, and it is believed to have begun part of the soldiers training," The Ancient Greeks and The
Technology Application In 21 Century A quote I heard many times when I was in high school and which I now know traces back to Sir Francis Bacon, one of our earliest scientist or philosophers as they were then called, is the statement "Knowledge Is Power." Today, I believe that the fuller, more correct statement is to say, "the application of knowledge is power." The study of science, and technology subjects will broader our opportunities in life. As we continue to advance to the 21st century- n
Great Gatsby 15 Short Essays Have you ever felt that there were two of you battling for control of the person you call yourself? Have you ever felt that you weren\'t quite sure which one you wanted to be in charge? All of us have at least two selves: one who wants to work hard, get good grades, and be successful; and one who would rather lie in the sun and listen to music and daydream. To understand F. Scott Fitzgerald, the man and the writer, you must begin with the idea of doubleness, or twone
