When Tiger started dominating in all golf competitions, Earl Woods was always there to support him and to make him believe that he can achieve more in his career. Therefore, everything was achievable in the career of Tiger Woods because his father believed in him. When Earl Woods died, Tiger lost a mentor, a real friend, an advisor, and the person who made him successful. It affected him and may be one of the key reasons why he lost momentum in playing golf. No one else could fill the role his father played in his career.
Like so much in the American system, it was not devilishly contrived by some master plotters; it developed naturally out of the needs of the situation”( Zinn, 200). Most wars in America are not well planned which is a bigger problem because more men will die. To start, a war, men are needed to fight and the poor have no other option. The rich can pay their way out by the power and money that has always been in their favor. It is a significant problem
He is all for signing items for the fans and doing interviews for the “media” but when it comes down to a tournament and he is playing; he puts it all aside and focus on the job in “hand” which is winning the tournament. He saves all the media stuff for after he has played so he doesn’t have to worry about it while he is playing. This shows how committed he is to the sport and committed to winning. A lot of pro’s can get distracted by the fans and the media but not Tiger. This is why he is so successful; he is so driven and determined to win, nothing gets in his way and that’s why he is my idol.
Did you know that depending on the sport, students who play sports in college most likely have less than a 2% chance of becoming professional athletes? At middle schools, high schools and colleges across the country, everyone is arguing over whether or not students with failing grades should be allowed to play sports. In my opinion, a good education is so very important for our country’s youth, especially the athletes. Not a lot of kids are good enough to play in the top college sports programs in the country. But even those who are, still have an astonishingly low chance at making the professional leagues.
I am very grateful to have been a part of all the sports I participated in and the different clubs I joined because I have met amazing coaches and sponsors that have helped shape my character. “Sportsmanship for me is when a guy walks off the court and you really can’t tell whether he won or lost, when he carries himself with pride either

Sam was a great soldier on the battlefield, you would expect that he would get some telling points, but it didn’t matter. It’s ironic that he was killed even though he showed loyalty throughout the whole adventure. Since Sam was on the Patriot side, he was threatening the splitting of his family. He dedicated so much of his life to the Patriots, that he even went against his father’s wish, which was seen as a sin. Sam deserved more than he had originally
A tragic hero is one who has achieved great success, whether it be personal, professional, or both. Through their success this person has managed to catch the attention of the public. They have a good image, a clean slate, but fail to maintain that, by an action or event that completely changes what everyone thinks of them as a person. Tiger Woods is a modern day tragic hero, because of his incredible athletic achievements in golf, he was a hero, however he failed to maintain a good reputation in the eye of the public due to him possessing egotistical and lustful characteristics. As a child and an adult Tiger Woods had a close relationship with his father, who significantly influenced him as a person and golfer.
I was a high tank offense game since the start and never ceased to be interesting. Both teams deserved to be the winners but there had to be losers and fortunately it was the Dallas Mavericks as Sacramento were able to make a last minute push to steal the game. Heading towards the end of the game, I went backstage to get a closer look at the players as they were departing the arena. John was approaching me so I tried to get his signature. He was infuriated by the loss and barely paid any attention to me.
In March Madness, the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) make an extreme amount of money, but colleges didn’t put in any work, the athletes did. People who disagree think that they shouldn't be paid because they get a free scholarship, but it is arguably since a scholarship is not what you the only thing needed to survive. College athletes need money as much as other people do. In “Why College Athletes Should be Paid” by Julian Sonny and in “UConn Guard: I go to bed starving” by NCL it is evident that colleges athletes should be paid. College athletes should be paid because they need money to survive and be healthy to perform better in the games.
