Jimmy V did not win this award because of his tremendous success as a college as a college basketball coach including winning the 1983 national championship, he won it for his amazing courage to fight and one day beat cancer even if he was not alive to see it. Jimmy was diagnosed with bone cancer in 1992 and was given a scarce amount of time to live. On March 3rd of 1993 as Jimmy’s hour glass of life was wasting down to its final grains, powerful and inspiring words vaulted from Jimmy’s mouth that could make the strongest of storms weak in the knees. Jimmy spread a message of love that night that continues to carry on today through the Jimmy V Foundation for Cancer Research. I will be critiquing Jimmy’s courageous speech in the following paragraphs.
Chris’s father never truly yelled at him for what he did just because of how cute he was as a child, Chris was usually allowed to do whatever he wanted this gave him this sense of empowerment but at the same time caused him to grow this self-independence. As Chris grew older he started watching an SNL favorite (Saturday Night Live) John Belushi who soon became Chris’ Idol, all he wanted to do was to be just like John Belushi. Through Chris’s High School years he started to become a little more active through football
In Lithuania, its custom that guests at a wedding-feast leave money to cover the cost, but since they were in America, many of the guest leave the feast without leaving any money since money was being budgeted amongst each person due to the lack of jobs available. Jurgis, who has great faith in the American Dream, vowed that he will simply work harder to make more money so that they may pay off the debt and continue living in America without struggling. Jobs in Packingtown involve back-breaking labor, however, conducted in unsafe conditions with little regard for individual workers. Therefore, Jurgis quickly finds work since he is young and eager to work. The family signed an agreement to buy a house, but the house was poorly maintained so it was full of repairs which evidently would cost money that they didn’t have.
Collins was drafted and hired for the same reason, to restore the winning tradition of the franchise. Collins was a very successful player for the 76ers, but due to injuries was forced to retire the summer before the title won in 1983. Collins is considered one of the best coaches, however there are certain aspects of his coaching style I disagree with. For example, Jrue Holiday should not have been named the point guard because the position doesn’t fit his capabilities. He wants to be known for making the big plays, instead of distributing the basketball to his teammates.
He was tall, quick, and had a high basketball I.Q. He lead his team of Palo Alto High School to a very successful season, 32 and 1. Also winning their division championship. Lin was categorized in the first-team allstate, he also won the Northern California Division two player of the year. After highschool, he sent out mixtapes of highlights to colleges, but they weren't seriously looking at him for sports.
The whole story is based on human dignity. Blacky learns important lessons through winter to summer. Examples include when Dumby passed the ball to Clemboy in the Grand Final even though Clemboy wasn’t the deadliest kicker in the team, Dumby was. But Dumby realizes that Clemboy hasn’t had a kick all day and he doesn’t want him to be ashamed. Blacky learns that it’s not just about him, he’s got teammates to help him.
Delivering products and goods all over the world for little or no reward was frustrating to read about, but Equiano would not give up in his quest to gain his freedom. Forty pounds sterling was all that was needed for this man to buy his freedom, which on some voyages was close to a months pay. In almost all cases he was not paid all he was owed and sometimes was not paid at all due to being misled and lied to by almost every employer. Being told as a boy that he was a good omen was right on and was showed by the snake crawling between his legs without biting him. Being sold again and again, the promises of being free and once free being questioned and beaten would test that statement and almost cause him to give up, but finding Christ and making his way back to London despite everything would once again show that he was a good omen to be true.
He felt much more respected here because everyone was treated the same and he was used to be treated very badly because he grew up in the south. Bill Russell was taking advantage of the opportunities that would make him reach the highest point possible in everything he did because he knew he wouldn’t have these opportunities in the south. He knew that going to college and getting an education would probably not have been a reality but just a dream, but here he knew that this was his time (Russell). Bill was not what is called a “natural” superstar. He did not make his junior high basketball ball team, and just barely made the junior varsity team as a sophomore.
The Chicano community did not have many “successful” role models, except their parents who were exploited in their jobs for long hours and little pay. And, because the Barrios brought a sense of respect to the marginalized Chicanos, some youth became attracted to the barrios. If people feel they are achieving this toughness it helps their self-esteem because they feel as though they have no chance to make it in other areas of life such as school and work. Therefore, for many youths, this seemed more realistic than economic or scholastic success. Often parents needed to work excessive hours for little pay forcing a certain amount of neglect of their
