Social networking: To join or not to join

If you’re one of the only people left in America that doesn’t have a social networking profile, congratulations! You may be wondering why in the world anyone would be interested in joining a social networking Web site, so let me tell you a little bit about my experiences with them.

I began my social networking tour with LiveJournal when I was in middle school. There I would tell the world about my love for Joey Fatone (from N’SYNC…duh.) Once in high school, I decided that it was time to move onto MySpace. By that time, my music tastes had changed and I was interested in the MySpace music pages. In college, I was introduced to Facebook, and just recently I joined Twitter. It’s been a long social networking road for me, but I can honestly say there have been times when it’s really helped, though there’s also been a time when it’s hurt.

Suicide? Blame the sun

When the word “suicide” comes to mind, usually it isn’t followed by pictures of blue skies and a bright yellow sun nudged between two puffy white clouds. Instead, and it would only seem logical, to picture dark, hazy skies with a side of thunder and rain. Suicide only happens on insidiously dark days and nights, right? Wrong.

Sportsmanship: Not just a player issue

Sportsmanship.  It’s what all little kids are taught when they start playing sports for the first time, learning the rules of the game and the behavioral conduct at which they are supposed to adhere.  The whole point is to uphold the spirit of the game and keep it as a game; not some televised form of war or a street fight.  The rules of the game are set to outline how the game is played, and most players and coaches follow the rules (while some act unethically in their attempts at skirting the rules, sometimes successful but only for a short while).  Behavioral conduct that makes up the ‘unwritten’ rules regard sportsmanship.  

Terrell Owens, being a drama queen for all his seasons, is highly regarded as unsportsmanlike in his diva-like calls for attention. From bashing his teammates, creating hostile environments within the locker room, to calling a press conference while on suspension to televise a workout.
