Ring Lardner: Life, Experiences and Short Stories
[ send me this paper ]
This is a 5 page paper discussing the life and short stories of Ring Lardner. Ring Lardner (1885-1933) was a columnist and humorist who was well known for his “busher” stories which told of his years as a sports and baseball writer from 1905-1913. Even after he stopped touring with the teams, all based in the Michigan and Chicago areas, Lardner continued to write about the intimate details and distinct colloquial language used by the players in the professional leagues. Several themes within the stories reflect his own life including his love of music, baseball, Michigan and humor. Bibliography list 4 sources.

Seniority System And Professional Football
[ send me this paper ]
4 pages in length. Professional football is not unlike any other large corporation where seniority garners more benefits - both expressed and implied - with each passing year. Such enticements as perks are part and parcel to the big-money component of football; inasmuch as a player is only as good as his talent, its serves as good business sense to use whatever means by which to keep him on the team so the organization continues flowing with money. Players quickly become tangible assets courted by other teams, which makes their value grow even greater with every year they remain in the league, an average which reflects about eight years. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

Should Public Money be Used to Subsidize Professional Sports and Sporting Venues?
[ send me this paper ]
This 10 page report discusses the fact that both individuals and city governments who are eager to have a professional sports franchise located in their city list numerous reasons why public dollars should be spent to entice a team to come to town or stay in town -- increased employment opportunities, greater revenue for the city, quality of life considerations for locals, and, of course, civic pride. But the question is whether or not tax dollars should be used to entice teams to locate in a city, build the arena necessary to house the team, or upgrade an arena or park because the team threatens to move elsewhere unless the city does so. In a sense, once the city gets its franchise it is held hostage by it. This paper looks at several sides of the issue. Bibliography lists 13 sources.

Soccer as a Type of Nationalism: International Perspectives, Soccer Fans and National Identity
[ send me this paper ]
This is a 20 page paper discussing soccer as a national identity as portrayed by soccer fans in different countries in addition to national pride and political perspectives. Soccer, referred to as football on an international basis, has become one of the most prominent symbols of nationalism within recent years. Whether soccer teams are representing local clubs, national clubs or are competing on an international stage, fans of the clubs are strictly devoted to their teams and identify with them on a national level. Sack and Seljan (2000) write that “a sport such as soccer provides opportunities for thousands of spectators to collectively affirm their commitments to beliefs, values, and myths than underlie their cultural identity”. In addition to the collective of fans at a soccer match, the presence of national flags, symbols, clothing and colors further unite (or divide in some cases) people who previously were strangers in a common bond of fraternity and national identity. Because of this powerful collective feel, it is not surprising then that often soccer matches and tournaments are used as political forums as well. Politically, soccer matches can be used to unite populations under a single cause or divide nations which may have historical differences. Nevertheless, soccer is overall a positive uniting force in a world in which people may often become isolated in their work or home environments. Soccer is the world’s most popular sport and countries all over the world have used soccer as a way to unite, promote, and celebrate their nationalism. Bibliography lists 13 sources.
