Why are people so worried about how much money a professional athlete makes? So many people are worried about how much money a professional athlete make, they say why doesn’t it go two someone in need or why don’t teachers make more money, they are teaching our future generation. Yes teachers may be teaching owner future, and yes there are servicemen putting their lives on the line, but these athletes aren’t regular athletes. Professional athletes have trained and sacrificed ever since they were little kids play youth sports to become who they are today.
Henry Ford once said, “Failure is the only opportunity to begin again, only this time more wisely.” For me, Ford is saying that you can take any failure, learn from it, and use what you learned to better one's self for the future. Another thing Ford’s quote is saying is that everyone experiences failure in their life, but it’s how they react to that failure that is going to further them in the future. During my life I have experienced many little failures, but there has only been one that has taught me exactly what Ford was trying to get across.
On Thursday, I found Hoizinga’s argument that play must be free activity and the five categories of sport to be interesting. Both advance the premise that play cannot be about material gain. The five categories of sport are play is voluntary, extraordinary, autotelic, absorbing, and fun.
Wouldn’t it be nice to earn millions of dollars to play a sport for fun? Being a professional athlete is something almost everybody has dreamed about and only a modest percentage have achieved.

Have you ever missed A month a school and have to make it up the last couple weeks of school. I am in 9th Grade at Hartland High School with approximately 2,000 students. I used to go to St.Patrick School in Brighton, it is a Catholic school with only around 300 students from 1st to 9th grade. I played hockey since I was 3 and after I got my concussion from hockey I have taken a break.

In the article, “The Secret Life of Tiger Woods” by Wright Thompson, the author explains the life of champion golfer Tiger Woods after his father’s death. The article “Are parents ruining youth sports? Fewer kids play amid pressure,” by Michael S. Rosenwald illustrates how fewer kids are doing youth sports due to the constant pressure of feeling not good enough. Both of these articles explain how growing up with sports have affected the lives of many, however, I believe that the quest to become an “elite athlete” is not worth the many sacrifices it requires people to make.

Professional Athletes Salary As super bowl LI comes to a close it is the Eagles that will earn $165,000 for winning the game and beating the all-time favorite the Patriots. Many people have debated on whether or not professional athletes should get paid less money. In my opinion, I believe they shouldn’t get paid less money for what they do because they practice for 24 to 30 hours a week, it provides support for medical costs, and they don’t just play the sport. To become a professional athlete, you have to work your entire life to get to that point.

Soccer is my identity;I honestly feel I can connect to the world through it.
