The Boston Red Sox were three games down. The Red Sox had to win the next four games to advance. Fans were worried. Boston had not won a World Series since 1918. No team had ever come back in the playoffs from a three-game deficit.
The Watergate Scandal was a political scandal where President Nixon had the help of five burglars and the burglars snuck into the Democratic National Committee office and stole documents and recorded phone calls. President Nixon did this so he could find out more about what the democratic side was doing during the election of 1972.

The promises that Warren G. Harding had made in his speech, Return to Normalcy, were never fulfilled for the American people. The accumulation of racial hatred remained at a high throughout most of Harding’s presidency and nothing was changed concerning the status of the KKK. The international agenda of America did recede after the war, however, other countries still turned to America in their times of debt. Harding was not able to return to a policy of Isolationism, and therefore, he placed the country within the center fold of the other allied nations. Harding also remained ignorant to the corrupt actions of his cabinet members during his presidency.
Other functions of Division 8 included the writing of books that would come out in Hoover’s name. He got the credit – and undoubtedly the royalties – for his books such as “Masters of Deceit” (Summers, 1993). Since most of his books did very well because of his sterling public reputation, the royalties often on a single book would be thousands of dollars. J. Edgar Hoover as a Director and as a Man As indicated in this chapter, J. Edgar Hoover was a paradox as a man, a despot as a director, and a national figure who aimed to keep his reputation unsullied while also building his image as the nation’s top cop. However, Curt Gentry said this about him: “One of the deepest and darkest secrets of all the FBI’s secrets was that America’s number one law enforcement officer was himself a crook”
Living in my house, I consistently hearing about sports. Baseball is frequently the topic. It seems as if it is a 24-hour a day, 365 days a year thing. Well that may be a small exaggeration, but it is a lot. We now have a no baseball at the table rule.
The year is 1919. The White Sox are playing against the Cincinnati Reds in the world series. The Cincinnati Reds beat the White Sox, however, eight of the White Sox players were accused of throwing the game, which is just intentionally losing the game. There are many reasons why their team could have done this, but it was obviously because of money. There are also many problems with what they did and why they would decide to do it.
My home baseball team didn’t win the world series in a 108 years. I said to myself this is the year it’s all going to go down. The Chicago cubs made it so far in the season this year and worked so hard they finally made it into the world series. I watched all the games in the series that each had their ups and downs, but not one of them was as big of a nail biter as this one. It had all come down to this game.
Of the forty-five presidents the United States has witness, the one that has received the least amount of attention and recognition would be Warren G. Harding. During Harding’s short-lived presidency, Harding took part in scandals and affairs that decremented his reputation as a leader. The Harding election was the result of a much needed end to highly popular party boss politics that had great influence over the campaigns (Faykosh). Party Bosses were responsible for the corruption, fraud, and propaganda that took place during the elections. The problems that Harding faced during his election have shaped the foundation of our current political system and have allowed for presidents to learn from his mistakes.

Sport have been around since the ancient roman times and during these times sports were consider bloody and harsh.
