I was born into a strict family which has kept me questioning the morals and culture of life ever since. I was taught that my culture was the right one, and other families were doing it all wrong. As I grew up I realized this was a major problem.
I’ve fallen into the communication department with an open mind and I simply hope to learn more about all there is to know. I love to question everything and be silent at the same time. I have a complicated mind and the most simplistic thought pattern. I’m a walking contradiction. I probably don’t belong in this class because I have no interest in the sports world but I want to learn about it. I have no clue what this class is going to be like but I’m ready to dive in.
Within in this class I hope to gain more knowledge about the sports world. I never played sports; I was too uncoordinated. I never watched sports religiously; I was too uninformed. My family is a basketball family though. We love it. I know nothing about it, but I love it too. I want to explore the world these athletes live in and how their culture is different from the one I’m living in. I started watching basketball because my uncle was a huge Laker fan and at family parties he would be in front of the TV the whole time. I found my curiosity for basketball there.
I also want to explore why when men see woman really into a certain sport they think it’s only to please them. Some woman are truly dedicated to the sport and follow it but they’re still criticized when they watch a game or play the game. These women can probably name all the athletes on the teams, all the shots they’ve made, but they’re still seen as a girl that doesn’t know anything. I’ve experience both sides of this situation and I want learn more about the history in this class.
