Along with Tom’s wealth comes his conceded mannerisms. When Nick describes him he says, “two shining arrogant eyes had established dominance over his face… the appearance of always leaning aggressively forward”(Fitzgerald, 7). From the beginning of the book we have an understanding that Tom Buchanan has a superiority complex and a bad attitude. It is clear that Tom Buchanan dominance, in closer view, stems from not only his wealth, but marrying the most desirable girl around, Daisy. Tom Buchanan is portrayed as a wealthy careless man.
In his Legacy people have thought about Jackie in many ways but for good. In Robinson’s first practice exhibition several thousand blacks filled the stands with excitement ( Effrat- Online ). Not only did regular people see what Jackie Robinson did, but also powerful people like the U.S. President. Bill Clinton said at the anniversary of Robinson breaking the color barrier, “ It’s hard to believe that it was fifty years ago that a twenty - eight year old rookie changed the face of baseball and the face of America forever.”( Robinson 159- 160 ). The Lincoln Library quoted about Robinson, “ What Jackie Robinson achieved on the baseball diamond may fade with the passage of time, but what he achieved as a man will long be remembered.” ( Lincoln Library 88).
The games frustrated and embarrassed Hitler enough that he took action in the worst possible way. For Jesse Owens, he became a nationally known figure and became very popular for his running skills. The New York Mets even took notice and hired Owens as a running coach (Christopher Klein, section 9). People will remember the 1936 Berlin Olympic games forever. Hitler’s attempt to create positive propaganda that promoted his Aryan race had a major set back after men like Jesse Owens came in snatching gold medals from many different events and competitions.
The story of Hamlet by William Shakespeare is a story of betrayal, revenge, and intrigue. Hamlet, the title character discovers that his uncle killed his father and married his mother effectively stealing the throne. Hamlet decides he must kill his uncle Claudius as revenge for what he had done. However, as the new king, Hamlet isn't sure how to get to him, so he decides to fake madness, but his plan backfires as Claudius doesn't trust him and makes sure he is always watched.

Chicago Cubs Introduction The Chicago Cubs are a Professional American Baseball Team that competes in the Sports and Entertainment Industry. Tom Ricketts and family bought the Chicago Cubs along with Wrigley Field from the Tribune Company in 2007. The Chicago Cubs are one of the oldest franchises to this day.

They tend to target males 16-60, but being such and old school team playing in such an old school ballpark they attract people of all races and ages.
This idea was then further elucidated in the words of Homer, “The stool he let fly hit the man’s shoulder. Odysseus only shook his head, as he walked on” (Homer 685). After Odysseus came up with the plan to sabotage them from the inside, he went to the suitors, where he asked for food -disguised as a beggar-. After asking for food, the haughty suitor Antinous, bashfully threw a stool, just to defend for that meager comment, “A pity you have more looks than hearts”. Although Odysseus could’ve ended his life right now and then, he waited patiently; That is the true format of self-control, holding one’s eager covets in the most crucial moments.

The ‘evil in the ruler’ comes out of Atreus when he gains revenge by brutally murdering his brother’s two sons, cutting them up and serving them to Thyestes in an act of cannibalism and a form of sacrifice. ‘Let the father with joyous greed rend his sons, and his own flesh devour’ (1917, 278). This proves Atreus’ vaulting ambition to keep the throne. This act of cannibalism parallels to Tantalus, who killed his son, Pelops and served him to the gods. That event caused the house of Atreus to be under an eternal curse by the gods.
The play Hamlet by Shakespeare is about a man named, Claudius, who kills his brother with poison, so he can become the king and marry with his brother’s wife. Then, his nephew, Hamlet wants to get revenge on his uncle for killing his father. To begin with, the play Hamlet contains many themes that have a really deep meaning. When analyzing the play Hamlet by the theme that the real poison in the play is revenge, and ambition, there are many examples of how this theme is shown in the play, like how Claudius poisoned his brother and he also died of poison, Hamlet wanting to get revenge, and Laertes also getting revenge of Hamlet. The theme that the real poison is revenge can be shown at the beginning of the play, since Claudius killed Hamlet’s father, he wants to get revenge because that was what the ghost of his father told him to do in order for his father to go to heaven.
Hamlet's uncle claudius killed king hamlet out of envy. It was envy for the throne and for the power to be the king of denmark.

Undoubtedly the subject of Jerry Jones the General Manager is somewhat clouded by the revisionist history most Cowboys fans use when talking about Jimmy Johnson. Then the old “the only reason Jerry ever won a Super Bowl was because of Jimmy”, always comes up in the conversation. Is it fair? Or do we look at Jimmy with rose-colored glasses and forgot about the contributions Jerry had in those quest for Lombardi trophies? It’s hard to even talk about one without the other (Jerry
It seemed like sometimes the owner would try to put together a decent team, and other times it seemed like the team was a tax write-off. Perhaps the owner Bill Bidwill had the best intentions when he would hire a new coach every other season but to the fans it seemed like he was just pulling names out of a hat. When Bill Bidwell decided to hand the football operations over to his football savvy son in 2007, the franchise took a positive direction. Bill Bidwill’s son, Michael, has done a good job since taking over for his father. He really got it right when he promoted Steve Keim as the new GM and managed to steal former Coach of the year Bruce Arians away from Indianapolis.
In 2011, Tom Brady made the headlines by making it to another Super Bowl. Even though Tom lost the game he still became popular to many and hated by even more.

When Brady returned he put up big numbers and returned to the Championship.
It really seemed like he was the top dog of the pack. There were many barriers he needed to cross to get there although. The biggest one was when he had to join the Yankees and he had to fight for his starting job to play at first base. At the time, the starting job was held by a man named, but after the Yankees got to see more out of Lou Gehrig, they awarded him with the starting job. Obviously, everybody knows Lou Gehrig was the famous baseball player for the New York Yankees.
