What happened to the true and pure type competition, because thats obviously gone. It got taken over by egos and alot more egos. Since when does an athlete have to be arrogant and self centered, thats not the definition of competition. Being an athlete is about having a competitive mindset, one that allows you to think you’re better then the other player. Don’t smack talk saying your better, but show you are. Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant have a very similar mindset…and that was/is winning, pure and simple. If Kobe gets beat, he isn’t going to try and injury or inflict pain on you, he’s going to beat you not once and not twice but countless amounts of times. A perfect example of arrogance is Andrew Bynum in the 2011 Western Conference Semi’s. The violent body check sending Barea to the floor…not to mention his poor exit from the court (taking off his jersey)…might I remind you. Remember in little league when sportsmanship was the #1 priority, where’d that go? I understand that sports are very emotional but at the same time show it on the court or field rather than on another player. For god sake, your playing the game you love FOR A LIVING! Most sports are a team game so act like it. Now quit your whining about money and etc and just compete. Thats all I ask of you
Every Sports Fan
Throughout the many years of competitive sports, there have been countless amounts of celebrations immediately following a magnificent plays. For example, Terrell Owens was notorious for his ridiculous celebrations, but man they were entertaining. A good celebration adds to the fun and/or intensity of the game. It keeps the fans involved and celebratory themselves. Tell me your favorite, and it doesn’t have to be one of the ones in the collage.
