Preview referat: Tiger Woods
Tiger is a pop icon not only because of what he has accomplished, but also for the work and effort he has put into achieving these things.
Through the years, Americans have picked people to follow, examples of leaders are, Babe Ruth, JFK and more recently Tiger Woods. People have rallied behind these icons and these icons have had a great effect on how our country has formed culturally. An icon is someone who not only gives to their discipline, such as politics or sports, but they also give to the society, and everyday people. Babe Ruth made baseball America's past time, he brought the game out of the dead-ball era, and transformed the game into the highly offensive slugfest that we know of as baseball.
JFK took over the presidency in what I believe to be the third hardest time that a president had to deal with, behind only Lincoln and Washington. JFK handled this situation of civil and human rights to perfection. He was the youngest, and probably the most charismatic president of our countries young history. If you ask any person over the age of 45 where they were when JFK was shot, 99.9% will be able to describe their experience to perfection. Tiger Woods has this same influential effect that every other icon in American culture history has had. He has changed the face of professional golf, and has effected how people view work ethic.
Tiger Woods represents everything that young athletes across America dream to be. He has been number one on the money list for the PGA Tour since his third year being professional, and has been rewriting the record books since he joined the tour. People actually root against Tiger because he wins so much; however, he works for everything he has accomplished. After a round during a tournament, Tiger does not call it a day; instead he heads out to the driving range until it is too dark to continue. This shows the extreme desire and drive that Tiger has, he is ranked number one in the world, and is still striving to improve his game. « mai multe referate din Engleza
