Tom Landry was a great coach and player, whose leadership made him a hero, and a prestigious name in the football world. Tom Landry was born in Mission, Texas (Moritz 270). Landry really excelled in football at the high school level, attaining the prestigious honors of being selected as an “all-regional fullback” (Moritz 270).

Joseph Clifford Montana, Jr., (born June 11, 1956 in the Monongahela 'pocket suburb' New Eagle, Pennsylvania) was widely considered one of the best football quarterbacks in the history of the National Football League. The western Pennsylvania and West Virginia hills around the Monongahela river drainage basin are famed in sports circles (esp. scouting) for the number of college and pro-NFL caliber players produced in the greater region, and Montana is perhaps archetypical in that manner. He is of Italian descent and grew to maturity in the hard-scrabble steel town of Monongehela at a time when the failing rust belt industries were making for tough times in the local economy. He led the San Francisco 49ers to four Super Bowls (1981 season, 1984 season, 1988 season, 1989 season) and became the only player to win three Super Bowl MVP awards.
“Football is like life, it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and respect for authority.” A quote by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL, Vince Lombardi. The NFL is one of the most viewed sporting events in America, and it brings fans from across the country to cheer on their favorite teams and players. Becoming a player, like Lombardi said, takes hard work, dedication and perseverance to become a starter and one of the best. Each year an All-Star game is played to see all of the best players play in a fun and entertaining game. This game is called the Pro Bowl, and is played a week before the Super Bowl.

Numerous people have risked their lives to restore democracy and civil rights in their nations, when they could easily have chosen comfortable exile elsewhere. Indeed, nationalism is the very basis of democratic government because it unites the citizens as “we the people”, supports the common political destiny, and nurtures trust toward the government. The most important value of nationalism to democracy lies in the fact that it has the capacity to unite individual citizens into a single entity with shared beliefs. Democracy requires a definition of demos or who are included in the game and who are not (Nodia 6). Wherever the boundaries of the playing field are in dispute, democratic institutions (such as participation, representation, or cooperation) simply cannot function.
Nationalism and imperialism both had good intentions individually, but when you combine the two, that’s when the results become disastrous and uncontrollable. Nationalism is the belief that one’s country should support everything it does, even the bad decisions. Imperialism is the belief that if someone truly supports their country that they would be willing to spread these ideals to other countries through democracy or in this case, war. The terrible effects of these combined were shown throughout the First World War. Many countries started getting a more advanced sense of excessive pride to their country and when imperialism began spreading decided to spread their “supreme” ideals to the rest of the world.
Johnny Manziel has been a star since entering the NCAA in 2012, shining on some of college football’s biggest stages while representing the Texas A&M Aggies. He has been referred to and regarded as one of the best players and quarterbacks to ever play college football. Now that his collegiate career is over and he is preparing for the NFL draft, he is facing criticism and doubt from NFL analysts saying he will be a bust and his talents wont transition to the next level. Many NFL scouts and analysts have compared him to and said he will be the next Tim Tebow. Considering Johnny Manziels quarter back mechanics, unique quickness, and play making ability I would like to think and argue otherwise.
