But the faith someone has to overcome all of the usual abilities it takes to be a competitive football player never comes into play, as it may be just a personal inclination. As a scholar and students capacity, such as myself, may be influenced by my responsibilities as a student and accomplishing a passing grade is equated to scoring a goal or executing my dream play, to do my very best in preparation for game day. When it comes to participating in the right advance placement classes, being involved with the class council, or taking advance college courses, I
According to the Motivational Theory, Brett Favre was put on this earth to play football; he lives for football. The forces within Favre drove him to keep playing football. The level of conflict Favre has going inside is insanely high. As a superstar football player made a big decision to come back and play more football, there were many people he feels he must please to keep his fame. The anxiety level that comes along with these conflicts has to be tremendous on oneself.
Discourse Community Analysis Rough Draft Throughout my school years, I have been involved various communities, but none were as memorable and special as my high school football team. I could even argue It was more of a family than a community. Our community was made up of guys who all had the same goal and were determined to reach it at all costs; we wanted to win, period. When you have a community of brothers who all come together and fight alongside each other, down after down, it is something truly special. For us Texans, football is not a pass time it is a religion.
FOOTBALL – THE PRESENT AND THE FUTURE The addition of “The Two Lines That Never Cross” in the next edition of WARAC would definitely be a good addition to the book in order to help the future students learn regarding the risks involved in playing football and also for people to realize the attitude of the fans of the game. I acknowledge the opportunity given to me in assisting the selection of articles to be included in the textbook. I believe that Chuck Klosterman’s article “The Two Lines That Never Cross” published on the GRANTLAND website on June 1 2012, would fit in perfectly into WARAC. This article discusses about the two extremes of football, the popularity it has gained over the years and the risks associated with the game. The article “The Two Lines That Never Cross" should be published in the WARAC because it clearly expresses the risks involved in playing football even though it is one of the most popular sports.
Boobie was being raised by his uncle L. V. Miles. He really wanted to pursue his dreams so he could take care of his uncle. His uncle was also a big fan of his.

Pasnanski composed this article primarily to inform the reader how daily language is so unique. He uses football as an example, when fall time comes around, peoples language changes and they use words that are very important in footbal, but not so much in normal language. As the article progresses, Pasnanski draws attention to many of the “football” words and points out how people use them vitally during fall time. Pasnanski is unable to make this essay such an impact on sports enthusiasts without the proper use of literary and rhetorical devices and using them in such a creative and unique way. The sentence structure, or syntax, is a vital element in passing the attitude of the writer on to the reader.
First, one of the challenges Dave Pelzer faced in his youth was finally being taken out of his mother’s house and put into foster care. In the beginning, he thinks that being a foster kid is going to be good but it took him a while to realize that it wasn’t what he dreamt it to be. Though he was away from abuse from his mother, foster care meant constant move for him. With all the moves he had to go through, he never really got the chance to fit in and become part of something. As soon as he felt like he was finally settling down, he left the family he was staying with.
I am not much of a football fan myself, but my friend and his family are. When I go over to his house, most of what his parents talk about is football. I have watched a game with him and his parents, and when something goes wrong in the game, they get too angry and just completely over-react about it. Football is also very over-competetive. To the fans watching the game, it is always about winning and never losing.
Kenneth Young September 27, 2012 Ms. Smith For the last seven years, my heart has been set on one thing, and that Football. It’s just something about the feeling I get from being out on the Astro-turf, with my team, pouring out my heart that makes me wonder what it would be like if I was doing anything else. I even joined the track team, just to try t get the feel of something different, but I ended up feeling like I was wasting my time. I soon realized, my place was on the field, and nowhere else. Like on game days I stayed pumped, right up until the last three seconds of the game.
I asked my parents what they thought of me playing football. Asked them at different times so my mom said that would be fun but you have to be careful. I can’t remember what my dad said but I think he said it would be hard, but he was fine with it like my awesome
