    While being recruited by various colleges for baseball, I had to decide on a program with a great athletic, academic, and fan supported background. I chose the University of Florida because of their great athletic success in the past ten years and all of their well-equipped facilities. I never took a recruiting visit to the University of Florida, so when I first arrived to Gainesville and saw the baseball field for the first time I was amazed. The field looked as if it were a professional stadiu...

    Brittany has become someone that you would not want your little girl to look up to. Throught her music career she has become idolized by our youth. She currently displays to much of her flesh.

This show of her flesh got all her fans to think it was alright for girls to display their flesh also. My own opinion in this matter is that she gave the girls in this...

    In early May 2002, a ban that the management of Major League Baseballs's seattle Mariners imposed requiring non-admittance of any fan wearing a tee shirt saying, "Yankees Suck" was finally lifted. Telling the Seattle Mariner fans that the word "suck" was offensive and had no place in a family atmosphere, was out of line to many. The backlash from the fans was overwhelming to the point that Mariners management had no choice but to lift the ban. The ban caused three major backlashes: It angered se...

    When some people think of prejudice or error in judgment, they think of Martin Luther King Jr. , Malcolm X, or maybe even Rodney King. When I think of prejudice, the only name that comes to my mind is Roger Maris. The way Maris was treated in New York was ridiculous. He was treated badly because he was not a big city guy. Maris was born in Minnesota in 1934, but raised in North Dakota. Needless to say, he was not the type of guy Yankee fans were used to. Yankee fans were always very hateful to ...
