Muscle Cars I have the bioligraphy but didn\'t feel like putting it in if u need it just email me :) American Muscle Cars, the very words speak of automotive power. They represent Americas height of power during the 60’s; throughout there aggressive body styling, technical advances, and there massive engines. Even though they were burdened and doomed to die by high insurance premiums and overshadowing government regulations. Muscle Cars were by far the most impressive and greatest vehicles Detro

NBA Lockout
NBA Lockout Economic Effects of the NBA Lockout The National Basketball Players Association lockout greatly affected the United States economy. Greedy team owners and greedy players fighting over large amounts of money caused the lockout. In March of 1998, team owners felt that they were paying players too much money, causing clubs to lose money, so they voted to reopen discussions on the collective bargaining agreement. The players on the other hand felt that any team financial problems were th

Nine Parts of Desire Islam is a religion that I have not learned much about before now. I knew that the women wore scarves covering their face, but I did not know why. I knew that Muslim’s celebrated Ramadan, but I did not know what that was. I have recently become more interested in learning about the Muslim religion because of a speech I heard in one of my other classes, and the book Nine Parts of Desire by Geraldine Brooks is a great insight into the world of Islam and into the lives of Musli

I mean, the movie “Hoosiers” was based on Indiana basketball and the importance it holds on the small, tight knit communities within the state. It just seems like it would be natural for me to begin playing organized basketball at an early age, but I did not other than the rough and tumble playground ball at recess. I began to yearn to play on a real team, and soon I would have my chance. I

Over the edge
Over the edge In the brutal cutthroat world of modern sports where athletes are in demand for excellence, athletes have been forced to find alternative means to improve their performance. Today, athletes often face a choice whether to use drugs to enhance their performance or to accept what could amount to a handicap. It is a choice that carries significant moral consideration, as currently, the use of performance enhancing drugs is banned from Olympic competition. Should athletes be allowed to

Paintball
Paintball Paintball is a fast and furious sport. It is played on both a social and serious level by over 16 million people around the world (Cooke,11). It is one of the fastest growing sports on the planet. Paintball\'s history, games, guns, and safety are all part of the fun. In 1970, James Hale, an engineer, invented and patented the first commercially successful paintball gun. Paintball guns were first used by the National Forest Association to mark trees that would be cut down. Then, it was

Pete Rose was placed on Baseball’s ineligible list in 1989 when commissioner of baseball, Bart Giamatti concluded that Rose had bet on baseball games, including games involving his own team, the Cincinnati Reds. In an agreement made with Baseball, Rose accepted his banishment from the sport. Although he never admitted to having gambled on baseball games(McCarver 44). Pete Rose was

It stuck throughout my childhood and certain occasions reminded me of it often. He asked me to help him with the chores or farm work , and I just said that I can\'t I am too busy tonight. A phrase that hurt him more every time it left my lips. He tried to understand that farming didn\'t appeal to me. Therefore he helped me with my interests like baseball and

The opinions are wide-ranging and convoluted. I am going to highlight the many ideas and opinions as to whether prayers in public school should be allowed and to what extent. The first opinion I am going to look at is that there should be absolutely no prayer of any kind in public schools. Bob Croddy has been te

Religion, on the other hand, is a non-competitive process based more on self-experience, It is hard to associate saying one\'s prayers in churches or temples with cheering for football teams in the World Cup. However, let us look at how sports came into being. At the time whe

Only New York has abstained, but is expected to approve shortly. The Declaration of Independence was drafted by a committee, which included John Adams and Benjamin Franklin,

sadfas My editorial is how the seriousness for school related sports has decreased. Sports aren’t what they used to be. People who say things like “ people are taking these sports too seriously” or “ the sports are meant to be fun”, I think, should rethink their opinion. Of course, they are taken seriously, that doesn’t necessarily mean they aren’t fun. Personally I love all of the yelling and confusion that goes on all around sports, whether it’s on TV, or the court, or on the field. I also thi

She believes that in such a sexually divided and competitive culture, sadomasochism is inevitable, and would not be so perverse if men and women learned to communicate. Goodlad claims that with the increase gaps between genders, everyone is expected

There has been an understandably significant increase in the number of persons desiring to represent professional athletes. This increase can be explained by the high-profile status of sports and the tremendous salaries of professional athletes. The concept of a sports agent representing professional or amateur athletes is a relatively recent

Sports can be confusing if you have never played. Once you learn one, the rest come easy. Basketball and football are two sports that have the same basics, but very different styles. Football and basketball have many differences. Scoring is one of the differences. You can score one, two, or three points at a time in basketb

It is said that over 3 million athletes and bodybuilders have used illegal steroids in this country alone (Street 1). If many people already use steroids why not make them legal and let people take them at their own risk? Or perhaps do yo

Steroid users believe taking anabolic steroids will enhance their performance, strength, size,etc. They regard the use of them as legitimate as any other aspect of training. To begin with, the term anabolic means to build tissue, therefore anabolic steroids tend to increase constructive metabolic pathways within the body

Nearly everyone wishes that they could be as intelligent as a Nerd is, but have as much fun as a Stupid does. In a way, everyone wishes that they were a Smartie, b

Although they have substantiated themselves in many ways, women are still viewed as inferior to men, esp

Not many people remind me of myself, but Rousseau is the only person to have done this. We are different in some aspects of our talents, because his lies in the arts while mine lie in sports

Underwater hockey is held at the bottom of a swimming pool 2-4 meters deep. The 6 players in the water must hold their breath while playing, but there are 4 substitutes that may be used freely.
