Mike Webster
Concussions have been a big problem since the day the NFL started. People did not know how dangerous football was until the crisis of Mike Webster broke out in the 90s. He played for Pittsburgh, played in the center, and wore number 52. By wearing that number he knew he obviously had to be the toughest player on the field. By playing in the center, there was no glory for Mike Webster. It was play after play while going in head to head with other players. Most guys play for 6 years or so, and then retire but that was not the case for Mike Webster. He played for 17 years in a dangerous game that he loved a lot. After he retired from the NFL, he was a different person than he was before he started playing in the NFL. Pam Webster recalled, “To see his brain declining years later was such a sad thing, because he was incredibly smart, and what I've said the boys have this gift that they see detail that no one else picks up on, and Mike had that gift.”
During a football game, sometimes Mike would see someone flexing, moving, and he would then draw them off to the side just by moving his body. He basically knew where everything was on the field. If you were to look for that in his old films when he was playing, you would see mike notice something like that play, and he would turn to Terry Bradshaw and tell him to change the play. Mike was the master of the game for sure. Mike’s ex-wife Pam Webster, said in League of Denial that she had more respect for Mike than any player on the field. Mike’s ex-wife really loved him even though she knew for sure that the NFL had changed mike forever. It is not crazy that Mike’s ex-wife believed that the NFL would change her husband. Mike Webster himself started noticing how much he had changed because sometimes he would feel good and not know what to do. He would…...

Concert Paper

...(Your Name) Prof. Horn MUS 100 18 February 2013 Concert Paper 1 These days musicians all feel the need to be performers, complete with pyrotechnic displays, on stage gimmicks, props, and special accoutrements necessary for a live performance, however there are some who still hold to the old staples, of just the instruments, the stage, every day clothes, and a smile; of those performers, even fewer are referred to on a first name basis that is recognized cross genre, and one of those musicians is George. George Strait has been a part of the country music scene since he released his first single in 1981, and his first debut at the rodeo occurred in 1983 when he filled in last minute for Eddie Rabbit; since that date, he has performed at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo ever since. On March 3, 2002 George “closed the Show with the last Rodeo concert in Reliant Astrodome, with a record attendance of 68,266 in the Astrodome, a record that will never be broken” (Georgestrait.com, 2013). It was just George, the Ace in the Hole Band, the instruments, cowboy boots, cowboy hats, wrangler jeans, and smiles. Midway through the performance, former President George Bush interrupted the performance to provide George with an award from the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, and the concert paused briefly as he reminisced about the first time that he set foot on Houston’s rodeo stage. The concert started with an instrumental version of “Deep in the Heart of Texas.” Including...

Death of Benny Paret

...The Death of Benny Paret The essay “The Death of Benny Paret” by Norman Mailer was well described, the reader feels like they are in the audience watching this devastating scene. Griffith’s “eighteen right hands in a row” was the cause of Benny’s death. The imagery Mailer gives us lets the audience imagine how he is being punched a multiple of times. Mailer also compares Griffin to a baseball bat while Paret was the pumpkin being demolished. The reader can imagine how hard Griffin’s punches were leaving Paret no chance to fight back. One can also think of poor Paret being knocked down by Griffin, the word demolished helps one imply this. In the beginning of the essay, Mailer talks about Paret’s fighting style but also adds in that he had start to take some bad maulings in the last fifteen-rounds he had this tells the reader that Paret might have been a great boxer but also had his flaws. Mailer uses compound-complex sentences to show that the fight between both of them had been taken seriously and both wanted to win. The fight “had its turns” implying that Griffin and Parker did not give up, they were both excellent fighters. However when Mailer says “Paret began to wilt” the reader recognizes that Paret was beginning to lose the fight. Mailer chooses the word “wilt” to show Paret was slowly losing the fight, like a flower slowly dying. Paret got trapped in a corner trying to duck away however he got tangled in the ropes and Griffin was ready to pounce on him. The author......

His name was Benny, a short and skinny man with long narrowed face, pulpy mouth and soft black eyes. His farther Mr Garber wasn’t afraid of sending his son to war nor did his mother Mrs Garber who knew her son would take care and watch out for himself.

Quote; ‘’ He had big conspicuous hands, which he preferred to keep out of sight in his pockets. In fact he seemed to want to keep out of sight all together;’’ Benny’s hands are somewhat a symbol for his illness. Every time it rained it would make him feel more locked or somewhat more emotional, he would either stare at his hands or grip it until the knuckles turned white. The rain must had reminded him of the terrifying war in Europe, or something that took place at a specific place......

Benny Paret

...Rhetorical Essay In the essay “The Death of Benny Paret”, the unknown author uses a very dramatic method of writing to demonstrate a dying fighters’ effect on an audience. The author’s purpose was to give the reader a true sense of the tragic events that are taking place in the world. “…the right whipping like a piston rod which has broken through the crankcase, or like a baseball bat demolishing a pumpkin.” This an example of one of the similes used by the author. The simile is used to show the readers the viciousness of the opposing fighter, when he punched Paret numerous times in a matter of seconds. The effect that is posed onto the reader is one of awe and amazement. The author’s usage of similes such as this one in his essay gives the audience a sense of involvement. He makes the readers feel as though they are right there sitting next to him in that second row, watching every single punch with him. The content found in this essay can be described as being logical. The author’s essay is in an order that keeps the audience interested and entertained. He starts off by telling of a champion, Benny Paret, and how he had the unusual ability of taking a punch. He then goes on to tell how his fighting began to deteriorate, ultimately leading to his fall against Griffith. This order of events is one that keeps the readers at the edge of their seats, leaving his audience in the dark much throughout his essay....

Benny Andrews

...Benny Andrews was a painter, writer, printmaker, sculptor, book illustrator and teacher. His work, like his background, was complex and multi-faceted. A storyteller at heart and self-described “people’s painter,” Andrews focused on figurative social commentary depicting the struggles, atrocities, and everyday occurrences in the world, but he was not satisfied to use art as a substitute for action. Benny Andrews was born on November 13, 1930, in Plainview, Georgia, a small farming community three miles from Madison. Andrews was one of 10 children in a family of sharecroppers; raised while it was still segregated in the rural south, he grew up desperately poor. His mother, Viola, instilled in her ten children the importance of education, religion, and freedom of expression; his father, George, a self-taught artist, fueled their creativity with his drawings and illustrations. Although the entire family worked in the cotton fields as sharecroppers, Viola Andrews was adamant that her children attend school. Andrews's attendance was sporadic because he went only when he wasn't needed in the fields or when it rained. After several years at Plainview Elementary School, Andrews walked to Madison to attend Burney Street High School, and in 1948 he was the first member of his family to graduate. Andrews enrolled in and studied at Georgia’s Fort Valley State College with a two-year scholarship awarded by the 4-H Club. The only art course offered was a single class in art......

The Death of Benny Paret

...RHETORICAL SAMPLE ANALYSIS ESSAY NOTE: The following essay was composed to serve as an example only and is not meant to be a format or framework to follow. It serves as representation of effective analysis with accompanying explanatory notes. Original Prompt: Read the article “The Death of Benny Paret” by Norman Mailer. Then write an essay that explains and analyzes the effect of the passage on the reader. Pay particular attention to how the writer uses diction, detail, syntax, imagery, and tone to produce that effect. I. INTRODUCTION (Establish background/context and your position. What is it that you are going to prove? How are you going to prove it? Why is it significant?) Two men face off in a contest of strength and tenacity. It is an archetypal clash between hero and villain—or at least Norman Mailer would have the reader believe so. The match between Benny Paret and his rival Griffith reads more like an epic turned upside down—the hero falls, the villain triumphs—than a boxing match between two sportsmen. Thesis Statement: Mailer’s descriptive account of the devastating event makes readers witness to the tragic death of Benny Paret. Mailer’s rhetorical choices create the image of a majestic fighter who loses his life to an uncontrolled animal; the reader shares the author’s admiration of the victim and the condemnation of his killer. It is the powerful control of language that leaves the reader disturbed and saddened as if experiencing the......

Benny and Joon

...Benny and Joon 1. “Schizophrenia[->0] may have a variety of symptoms. Usually the illness develops slowly over months or even years. At first, the symptoms may not be noticeable. For example, you may feel tense, or have trouble sleeping or concentrating. You can become isolated and withdrawn, and have trouble making or keeping friends. As the illness continues, psychotic[->1] symptoms develop: An appearance or mood that shows no emotion (flat affect)Bizarre motor behavior in which there is less reaction to the environment (catatonic behavior)False beliefs or thoughts that have nothing to do with reality (delusions[->2])Hearing, seeing, or feeling things that are not there (hallucinations[->3])Thoughts "jump" between unrelated topics (disordered thinking)”(Schizophrenia) 2. This movie is very lighthearted and seems to be more of a love story than a movie about disorders. I don’t think it showed a true aspect of schizophrenia, or maybe just a watered down version of it. Joon’s outburst at the end of the movie seemed to be the most realistic version of the disorder. Joon is portrayed as pretty much normal except for her quirky ways and the unusual things she does. She acts like a child and is very unpredictable. 3. No, it seemed very unrealistic, almost watered down. A good story but more about their lives than the true illness. 4. Obsessive Compulsive disorder. Joon has this need to do things over and over. She has a whole bunch of rituals that need to be done or she......

Benny Breweries: Bottle Replenishment

...Operations Management Case Study - 2 Benny Breweries: Bottle Replenishment THE BOTTLE REPLENISHMENT DECISION Early in 2004, Manish Krishnan, purchasing manager for Benny Breweries, Mangalore, was trying to determine how many bottles to purchase in the coming year. During 2003, the market had leveled off, and 2004 sales predictions were difficult. On the one hand, Krishnan wanted to be sure that sufficient bottles were available to supply 2004 sales levels, yet also wanted to minimize year-end inventories. Covered storage space for empty bottles was tight, and a bottle design change seemed possible in 2005 or 2006. COMPANY BACKGROUND Benny Breweries was located in Mangalore. Over the years, the company had established an excellent reputation. Benny Beer had begun to gain popularity of late, and as a result, a modest market expansion started in 2000. In February 2004, sales reached the highest level in the company’s history. However, in 2003, the sales increase had been well below the trend average (see Exhibits 1 and 2). Four sales peaks occurred during the year: Holi, Christmas, Easter and Onam (refer appended note). Holi was the highest sales period but each peak caused the company to operate on tight schedules and Benny hired more labor and scheduled extra shifts. BREWING PROCESS Beer brewing started with extraction of sugar from malt by an enzymic process. This sugar was then boiled with hops, producing a sterilized and concentrated solution. The resins extracted from......

'the Death of Benny Paret' Rhetoric Anaylsis

...There is a difference between dying an honorable and noble death and simply dying. It is the gap between trying and giving up and it is the sense of the unbearable pleasure that comes along with success. In Norman Mailer’s “The Death of Benny Paret”, the author witnesses a first-hand account of the tragic death of the boxer, Paret. Through many rhetorical devices, Mailer is able to have an effect on his audience, allowing them to feel the same horror. Mailer uses diction to mold the events in a biased and respectful way. Using words like “inspired” to describe the kind of shame that Paret was creating by loosing makes his failure seem less crucial. Again, the author makes euphemisms through his word choice by saying that Paret “[fought] as if he were seeking to demonstrate that he could take more punishment than any man alive”, as if losing was an admirable quality. Instead of claiming that Paret was indeed being ruthlessly beaten by Griffith, his “excuse” that Paret was purposely demonstrating a skill had a smaller impact on Paret’s publicity. Through detail, the reader is able to sympathize the gruesome fight and eventual death of Paret. Mailer mentions that Griffith hit Paret “eighteen right hands in a row” in about “three or four seconds”. These details create imagery and allow the audience to imagine Paret’s situation. When Paret died, it seemed to last forever. The details of how Paret slowly died while Griffith was still punching him greatly affects the audience in...
