When watching or playing different sports it opens up the eyes of noticing the differences of the rules and cultures of that sport, and George Carlin made it coherent when comparing baseball and football. In the passage “Baseball vs. Football” the comedian George Carlin “enjoys comparing” the two sports – football and baseball by utilizing a bias tone, diction, and syntax. Using these rhetorical devices it characterizes baseball as a more favorable sport compared to football. When talking about baseball George Carlin used syntax by using a lot of exclamation points, giving the sport an uplifting feeling when the reader reads it. For example, the last few sentences of the passage state “In baseball the object is to go home!
Bissinger rights about euphoria and gambling in the context of the oil fields and the economy but I found this quote about opioids and gambling to be easily connected to football and especially Boobie Mile’s case. The euphoria is the feeling of being under the lights, on the pitch with the stands full of fans. The rush of excitement and love for the game that comes right before kickoff. That euphoria is felt around Odessan football. The gambling made me think of Boobie and his knee injury.
Adrenaline courses through your body as your trusted QB, John Smith, passes the ball over to you and you break free of the tight defense they have fortified around you and John. Time is ticking down, and this touchdown is the thin line between victory and defeat. You accelerate, feeling the wind breeze against your cheeks as the distance between the end zone and you grow shorter and shorter. 15 yards …. 10 yards ….
This connects with ethos. In this moment Gaines has all eyes on him, he has all the attention from the players. They are all focused on what advice he is giving. He has credibility because of the football jargon he uses with the team, perhaps others might not know what he’s talking about but everyone in that room does. This helps the players connect with their coach.
Sean Tuohy spearheads Michael’s academic success and fights his battles for him when the NCAA accuses Michael of accepting offers from the Tuohy family in exchange for his promise to play college ball for Ole Miss. Coach Burgess is the athletics director at Briarcrest Christian High School. Once Michael becomes eligible to play athletics for the school, Coach Burgess delights in adding Michael to various teams, and he is constantly astounded by the way Michael seems to naturally master athletic skills without having to be
issues that I’ve identified (anger, confidence, and cultural background). I will be focusing my analysis on how Bobby controls and/or changes his thoughts, actions, or behaviors during throughout the story. Introduction Performance on the field and internal issues can be interrelated. The character Bobby Boucher (a “slow minded” football player) from the movie, The Waterboy, perfectly displays how he uses his personal issues (demons) to fuel his performance on the field. Demonstrating how an athlete’s performance on the field can often be associated with their internal conflicts which they release on the field.

Most of the time kicking field goal is about repetition and remembering the way you kicked that time you made it. A lot of other things go into kicking field goals. For example, power can be a big factor, there has been many cases where field goal come up short and teams lose the game because of that. Some might say that the most beautiful part of football is the way the quarterback throws the ball. There has been throws in history that look so majestic as they float through the air.To this physics can play a big part because a nice throw need to have the
Theodore Roosevelt in his letter to his son, The Proper Place For Sports(1919), proposes to his son that football in college is dangerous and he should think before he play. He supports his claim by first bringing up the subject, then telling his son of he should make the decision, then telling his son to not let sports get in the way of school, in closing he states general things going on to change the subject. Roosevelt’s purpose is to beget the problems of football in order to make his son realize the consequences of playing and make him rethink. He adopts a sincere tone for his athletic son.
The audience thinks he is ready for anything to come his way. In the text the author uses visual imagery when he says “his red jersey a matador to my bull”. It shows that he is focused on the quarterback and ready to get the tackle. You can see him staring down the quarterback. The audience thinks that he is focused on getting the tackle and helping his team win the game.
Before the amazing play that was about to unfold, Eli Manning was set in the shotgun ready for the snap on his own one yard line. A running back was set 2 yards behind Eli in the dark green and white paint on the Jets logo in the endzone. Two receivers are set to his right, and one is set to the left. Also, the tight end is ready and lined up on the line of scrimmage. The center snaps the ball powerfully and fierbely as Eli catches the ball startled.
When I partially tore my ACL I had to show grit not to give up playing football. It was during warmups for a football game in 7th grade. The offense was all lined up with me as an outside receivor with Derrick on the inside. When Nick hiked the ball I raced to the cornerback ,who happened to be Ethan Goodwin, and started blocking him. Then the whistle blew so I looked over at Nick to see what happened and realized that that he had just thrown the ball.
I’m sure over the years of watching American football you have wondered what I have wondered.You know cool things like whatever happened to seven defensive linemen defenses? I 'm sure those were the days... (Oh the scoring!) The question we should not ask or ponder is a no brainer at least I hope it is along with other football fanatics. So let’s not ask why haven’t teams used a seven defensive linemen type of strategy more often since this defense was effective? Because that would be the point where I take a few steps backward, shake my head, and laugh like Eddie Murphy performed Raw live in front of me.
“He’s at the 40, 30, 20, 10! Oooh, I don’t think he’s getting up from that hit.” Recreational and professional football players are fun to watch, but these players have higher risks of injuries, that they are willing to put on the line. As a soon to be parent, I would hesitate to let my son play football because of the obvious warning signs shown, consequences of playing, and the devastations of the injuries. On the stands, fans are going crazy and enjoying their time watching two hundred to four hundred pound men aggressively beat each other. Little does the audience know, the players being hit is building up that damage to either break, develop, or lose something precious to them.
