My editorial is how the seriousness for school related sports has decreased. Sports aren’t 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 doesn’t necessarily mean they aren’t fun. Personally I love all of the yelling and confusion that goes on all around sports, whether it’s on TV, or the court, or on t

I have chosen to write my essay on comparison and contrast by writing about two sports I enjoy to compete at: crew and mountain biking. I have been racing crew boats since the spring of 1997. I began racing mountain bikes the following spring of 1998. I plan to point out similarities and differences in the two sports. I hope to prove even thought the two sports are quite different they benefit each other. I also hope to teach you things that probably don’t know about each sport. I

When we think of “professional athletes,” the names that come to our minds are players such as Kurt Warner, Andre Agassi, Mark McGwire, Michael Jordan, Brett Hull, and Steve Austin to name a few. These male athletes are very popular in the professional sports world. But what about Dot Richardson, Rebecca Lobo, Sheryl Swoopes, Mia Hamm, and Cammi Granato to name a few more? These are female professional athletes that some might recognize, but their names are not as popular as

Where Did the Love Go? The other day I was looking through a magazine that a friend let me borrow. The name of the magazine was Slam. It is a magazine all about basketball and the players in the NBA. I was halfway through the magazine when I saw an advertisement that caught my eye. It was a picture of a NBA star named Steve Francis.

Most sports work on the same concept, whoever has the most points at the end of the game wins. There are some exceptions, like golf, where the least points win. Sports can be confusing if you have never played. Once you learn one, the rest come easy. Basketball and football are two sports that have the same basics, but very different styles. Football and basketball have many differences. Scoring is one of the differences. You can score one, two, or three points at a time in basketbal

Sports Acrobatics The roots of Sports Acrobatics date back to the time of the ancient Greeks. The word “acrobatics” is derived from a word in the Greek language meaning “to elevate.” This derivation is significant, since Sports Acrobatics combines the aspects of lifting and balancing and the high flight of partner tosses and tumbling passes. Modern Sports Acrobatics began in Russia with the formation of the International Federation of Sports Acrobatics (IFSA). This exciting

To say that my family enjoys sports is a slight understatement. A better statement might be that my family is crazy about sports. I ve probably spent a good quarter of my life watching, discussing, playing, describing, analyzing, or listening to some kind of sporting event. Though I m not quite as athletically talented as either my brothers or sister, I nevertheless find the world of sports both fun and fascinating. I have always enjoyed sitting in the stands, losing my voice to support th
