He's also a good friend and a soccer star. His team was competing in the State Cup, and Kevin couldn’t wait to show his coach what he can really do. But it was all in jeopardy after his arrest. Police sergeant Jerry Brown knew Kevin's father, who was a police
Young Pedro’s immaturity is evident in his opinion of his birthday gift. “On his birthday, they gave Pedro a soccer ball. Pedro complained, because he wanted one made out of white leather with black patches, just like the ones the professionals use” (Mazer 95) Though his parents tried to fulfill his wish for a soccer ball, he was not satiated by the lower-quality version. Pedro, much like many other children his age, was too immature to be grateful that his parents tried to make him happy. Because of his immaturity, he could not realize that his family wasn’t in a position economically to purchase a high quality soccer ball for him, though they may have wanted to.

Okonkwo never truly like laziness so he’d always beat Nwoye or nagg at him due to his laziness in hopes he wouldn’t be lazy anymore. He took a liking to Ikemefuna because he was a hardworking kid,later on Nwoye started to not be lazy and actually like hardwork due to Ikemefuna being an older brother to him. Okonkwo saw this and was inwardly pleased with both boys but very pleased due to his son’s development. I feel Okonkwo is a good man at heart, he just has a very, very tough shell, beating is bad yes, but he just doesn’t want his kid to be a lazy non-hardworking man, so i could get the understanding of that from
My brother just started playing soccer. This was his first time and he didn’t know that much about it. I had played when I was little and I knew somethings about soccer so I figured I could teach him what I knew. We started and he so caught on. What mainly caused me to want to teach my brother what I knew about soccer was how he couldn’t quit kick the ball where he wanted it to go.
“[...] the study and desire of the wisest men since the creation of the world was now within my grasp” (34). He was aware that there was still a lot of work necessary, but not once he doubted that he would achieve it in the end. “[…] but I doubted not that I should ultimately succeed.” (35) It is again a sign of his narcissistic nature which does not permit him to question his ability in the least. Hence, when deciding whether to animate a human being like himself or a simpler animal, he himself admits that his imagination, while only being able to think of the eventual success, would not allow him to settle with the easier task. “I doubted at first whether I should attempt the creation of a being like myself or one of simpler organization; but my imagination was too much exalted by my first success to permit me to doubt of my ability to give life to an animal as complex and wonderful as man.” (35) Victor 's self-absorbed nature leaves him no other choice as to always strive for the most demanding challenge, as he is confident he will not fail.
Many people think it is a hobby for me but it’s actually not it is a passion that I enjoying investing my life in. To begin with, soccer for me isn’t just a sport or a hobby, it’s a career! I have a passion for soccer and I plan to make a career out of it because I have invested ten of my years to soccer. Everyone around me from friends to family members think that I will not achieve that goal due to the fact that they say I don’t always finish what I start. My mother has been getting on to me because I spend most of the day in soccer field but truth be told she should appreciate that I’m not getting in any kinds of trouble with the law or messing with the wrong crowd.
Even the best soccer players in the world have ritual. For example, Portugal’s captain Cristiano Ronaldo “will not play a game unless he’s gotten a fresh haircut beforehand. He also has to be the first member of the Portuguese national team to enter the pitch.”(Barrabi). Another famous player that perform a ritual is the Mexican national team strikers javier hernandez, before the match starts he drops on his knees in the middle of the field and prays, he asks god to look out for all the players in the pitch. He inherited the ritual from his father who also played for his country.
Now, I can not write an essay on culture without expressing one of my loves in life, soccer. Soccer back in El Salvador (and most of Latin America) is like football in the U.S,many play it, even more watch it. My family is part of the group of soccer fans who only watch big tournaments such as the Fifa world cup: I think it 's mostly because we don 't have much time for it outside of those tournaments. My father only ever played it when he was young back in El Salvador, but just casually, but he thought it would be a good idea to put my on a team when I was 7, playing in Germany. As I remember it now, it never clicked with me.
“I remember the time when you couldn’t even kick a soccer ball, but now you are able to demonstrate astounding skills when you are on the field,” stated my older brother, Bill, before I was about to make my mark in my soccer career at the State Cup finals. I remember that time when I was an eight year old kid who always created an air of melancholy with my inept soccer skills. Only when believing in myself and rigorous training did I grasp the concepts that were essential to an adept soccer player. After jumping leaps and bounds, pushing myself till I reached the breaking point, I made a name for myself. When I reflect on my evolution, I realize that beautiful things can come from unpromising beginnings.
