  • A Sport Divided Men's Versus Women's Football

    1243 words, 5 pages

    Speed, agility, the ability to out maneuver, and the ability to reflect are what separate the champions from the amateurs, the sluggish from the swift, and the acute from the dawdling. The ability to think on ones feet and out smart an opponent is important and needed or you’re left with an unwanted conclusion. The player pounds down the field out maneuvering forwards, mid-fielders, and defenders, and finally it is just the player, the goalie, and the net. The instant roar of the crowd with complete amazement and wonder is sufficient to know an unbelievable shot from an impracticable place was

    Aluminum vs. Wood. Which is Better for Baseball? CRACK! That was the sound of our nation’s pastime in the early days of baseball. For nearly 150 years, the wooden bat was used in every level of baseball. PING! This is the only sound you will hear on the diamond now, except at the professional level. What happened to the old-fashioned crack of the bat at the amateur level? The wooden bat was replaced by the aluminum bat in the early 1970’s. Since its inception, the debate has been waged across America on which bat performs better and is better for the game

    Truly Equal

    Truly Equal? The Title IV documents were a huge step in equaling the rights of women and men. The documents showed the United States, if not the world, that women were a force to be reckoned with. Until recently, a woman’s job was to be home and take care of the house and kids. If anybody went up to a woman and tell her to stay home and take care of the house and kids, she would probably look at that person with a look of confusion. She would also probably ask that person if they had been living under a rock for the past 30 years. A woman today can be anything she
