What Sports Should Mean To Us

By Ben Goldstein On August - 10 - 2010

I wrote this article during the school year for a creative writing class I took, so most of these events are old, but I think the meaning is good and this a new kind of writing that I wrote. It isn't really quite an article but it's close. Hope you enjoy.

 

With professional athletes always being in the spotlight wherever they go, they have always been considered role models and always will be.

Sorry, guys and girls nothing will stop it, even if you get into a car crash and maybe even an affair, Tiger, or if you drink booze at halftime, Ron, or if you commit a handball penalty with a World Cup entrance on the line, Thierry.

But why do these guys have to be considered role models? Why do we dwell on the negative events or people rather than the positive?

Drew Brees, the New Orleans Saints quarterback, has been in the spotlight since 2001, when he was drafted by the San Diego Chargers.

But he wasn’t in the spotlight because of having an affair or drinking booze or cheating to win the game.
