On any given Football Sunday, fans across the country dive into the back of their closets and pull out their favorite team/player’s jersey, slap it on, and head out to the sports bar to cheer their town’s gladiators on to victory.
Parents always have high hopes for their children. Will they be tennis superstars? Golf phenoms?
Are the Olympics in your future? Weekends spent in gyms watching basketball games late into the night?
Are you going to be a baseball caravan parent, driving your kids all over the country so they can play competitively and maybe get in the Little League World Series?
Web Watch knows quite a few professional sports players, and in the off-season, we regularly see them continuing to practice honing their skills.
They don’t sit around and eat Butterfingers all day – they really do live, breathe the sports that they love getting paid to play.
And yes, you ARE that annoying to the rest of us.
New sports come and go.
Remember that Trampoline-Basketball hybrid that was filmed at Universal Studios a while back? It never really caught on.
The most popular sports, you see, are ones that people can watch the pros play on TV (golf, tennis, baseball, basketball, football) and then later get together with their friends and play themselves.
Lacrosse hasn’t really caught on with the mainstream, but its getting there.
Summer may be just around the corner, but it’s never too early to talk about NFL FOOTBALL.
True football fans live and breathe their favorite players and teams 24/7. And, as we all know, some teams are better than others when it comes to who’s winning the popularity game.
Like most of us, Web Watch remembers the joys and the horrors of grade school gym class.
Remember that annual tradition of learning square dancing during the cold winter months? Nobody liked doing that, but it was something for the gym teachers to foist upon their charges and hope for the best.
Anything was better than running laps, typically. Square dancing wasn’t it.
High school athletics are nothing to sneeze at.
For some, it’s a required part of the curriculum, intended to encourage healthy living and the strong development of young bodies still growing.
For others, it’s a way out of a podunk town and into a major university or professional career.
But if you participate in a solid high school sports program, there’s a good chance that you’ll end up hurt…. or even dead.
It’s been oft-said that the DALLAS COWBOYS are “AMERICA’S TEAM”, at least when it comes to football.
The Atlanta Braves claimed the same title for themselves for their ubiquitousness of games seen nationally on SUPERSTATION TBS back in the day.
How well did you do on your SAT as you were applying for college?
For some, their SAT scores were pitiful – often discussed in subsequent college or job interviews by someone who “just doesn’t test well”.
Yes, the SAT can be a numbing experience, and there can be a lot of pressure on folks to do well as a lot of future plans rely on the SAT for advancing beyond mediocrity.
Over the years, there has been more and more calls to the NFL and the Washington Redskins organization about the offensive name “Redskins” for the Washington team mascot.
Even President Barack Obama has voiced his opinion on the subject.
Have you ever wondered where your favorite football team’s fanbase really was located?
Especially as we’re now in the middle of the Playoffs, sports-minded folks are singularly focused on one of the eight remaining NFL Playoff teams this season:
- Carolina Panthers
- San Francisco 49ers
- San Diego Chargers
- Denver Broncos
- New Orleans Saints
- Seattle Seahawks
- Indianapolis Colts
- New England Patriots
With the Super Bowl around the corner, there are the usual suspects playing in this year’s playoffs: the Green Bay Packers, New England Patriots, Denver Broncos… and the Carolina Panthers?
Seemingly forgotten as a viable team this year, the Panthers started off the season at 1-3 before going on a winning tear through their opponents – finishing the season at the top of their division, the number 2 seed in the conference, and with a first round bye.
We all watch football every weekend, right?
And if not football every week, you at least watch the Super Bowl with your friends or family. And who can’t remember the classic sounds of Howard Cosell calling a sporting event that big? It was magic, wasn’t it?
Now that NFL football season is here, let’s take a look at some more interesting information that could help you in your future career as an NFL Talent Agent as you work your Fantasy Football team up.
