How to Become a World Champion
Have you ever thought or dreamt about making a living eight seconds at a time? Have you ever thought of crawling on a one ton bad bovine with horns the size of baseball bats? Have you ever thought about working all year at a sport you love so much and come away at the end with a million dollar check? If so, you are dreaming of being a world champion bull rider. World champion bull riders have to work out, eat right, drill, meditate, and love the sport.
In 1992, a group of 20 visionary bull riders broke away from rodeo seeking better bulls and better money to form a bull rider’s only association. They met in a hotel room in Arizona and put up 1,000 each to form what is now know as the PBR. The PBR became popular in the Canada, Mexico, Australia, and Brazil for the money and top bulls. At the end of the season, the world champion rider wins a one million dollar bonus. On average an event winner brings home about $35,000. However, not anybody can hop on the PBR tour and make these large sums of money, one has to earn their way through the Touring Pro Division also known as the Velocity tour (Professional Bull Riders, Inc).
An athlete’s body is like a machine, it only runs as good as the fuel they put in it! Bacon is a food that is full of salt and not all athletes need that, it also has minimal protein and lots of saturated fat. Energy drinks and soda are sugar filled drinks that give a short term energy boost.

- There are breeds that can be classified as outlaws. How can that be. It is like judging a book by its cover, and is not that frowned upon.

- American Pit Bull Terrier, with a firm muscular body prepared to attack at any moment; jaws of steel that have a death grip, and a bark just as intimidating as their appearance would make anyone terrified of this breed. With the media so fixated on the Pit Bull breed, these dogs have been given a reputation of being aggressive and vicious. They are never reported on the respectable acts they do. The consequence of the media’s excessive enthusiasm, and numerous reported dog bites, have some states sense they are a danger to the community and have banned the breed....

- A young girl named Paikea once said, “In the old days, the land felt a great emptiness. It was waiting. Waiting to be filled. Waiting for someone to love it. Waiting for a leader” (Whale Rider). As seen in the eyes of Paikea, from the movie Whale Rider, a leader is a guide, someone who guides his or her people in the right directions, someone who does all he or she can do to improve his or her land. In the eyes of Antigone, from the play Antigone, princess of Thebes, the rules of the leader only seem right when she feels they don’t contradict with the rules of the gods....

- Analysis of Paragraph on Page 271-272 of Porter’s Pale Horse, Pale Rider In the opening sentence of this paragraph, two workers at the newspaper office are described. They are not, however, described as people though, they are instead said to be solely “two pairs of legs” (Porter 271). By describing solely this part of the people, Porter is drawing attention to a part of the body seemingly unrelated to newspaper writing. This gives the reader the impression that these two writers are either unskilled in the area or writing, or unimportant to the speaker.... [tags: Porter’s Pale Horse Pale Rider]

- Analysis of The Bull Moose "The Bull Moose" by Alden Nowlan is a finely crafted poem which reminds us of how far man has strayed from Nature. Through a carefully constructed series of contrasted images, Nowlan laments, in true Romantic fashion, man's separation from Nature. The strength of the old moose is impressive. On his death march, he nonetheless comes "lurching" and "stumbling" in ponderous and powerful strides to "the pole-fenced pasture'- the edge of civilization. A crowd quickly gathers, a crowd of men and women, old and young - all notable for their insensitivity and lack of respect.... [tags: Bull Moose Essays]

- “Raging Bull” (1980) is not a so much a film about boxing but more of a story about a psychotically jealous, sexually insecure borderline homosexual, caged animal of a man, who encourages pain and suffering in his life as almost a form of reparation. Martin Scorsese’s masterpiece of a film drags you down into the seedy filth stenched world of former middleweight boxing champion Jake “The Bronx Bull” LaMotta. Masterfully he paints the picture of a beast whose sole drive is not boxing but an insatiable obsessive jealously over his wife and his fear of his own underling sexuality....
