The Importance of Learning About Every Day Sport
A sports movie is basically a movie genre which makes use of sports as the main theme of the movie. It’s a fictional production where in any given movie, an athlete, game, sports event, or fan of sport are heavily involved, and that rely so much on sports to some extent for their overall plot resolution or motivation. Some examples of such movies that have become very popular in recent years are The Replacements, The Perfect Team, Field of Dreams, Man on the Moon, Falling Down, etc. The latter is especially notable because of its premise – a man who returns from the dead tries to win back his former lover, while using sports as a means to do so. Though it may not sound like it, this type of film would actually have a huge effect on today’s youth, especially since most teens nowadays enjoy playing sports video games.
Sports that are depicted in most fictional sports movies tend to be the pure glories of a particular sport, whereby there is usually some kind of noble contest taking place between two contestants. The athletes are usually seen as true heroes, and the sportsmanship is what the audience look up to in the end of the movie. However, one major problem with this kind of sports story, which is found more often in old, popular movies, is that there tends to be very few (if any) actual sportsmanship, or unfair play. Such stories can actually promote the younger generation to have the courage to engage in even more sportsmanship, to show their true sportsmanship side in the world.
As most sports aficionados know, there are hundreds of different sports, all with their own unique set of rules and regulations, and sometimes even their own unique set of professionals who officiate various competitions or games. To put it simply, the term’sports’ itself can mean several different things, depending on who you ask about it. One thing is for sure, however – there is sportsmanship, fair play, and of course, rules to govern every type of sport imaginable. Thus, to truly enjoy the game, one should be dedicated to learning about and learning the rules of every sport they are interested in. This will give them the experience of knowing how they could potentially act in situations to uphold the spirit of sportsmanship.
