While it is currently unknown whether there will be NFL in 2011, the massive NFL roster is going to need to accommodate the six months of downtime with other activities. You can only practice football so much without playing an actual NFL game so here are some suggestions for NFL
A gladiator sits in the dungeon sweating, for his turn is soon to come. He hears the howls of men and beasts, the thud of corpses dropping to the floor, and the crowd applauding. Finally, he hears the tapping of the guard’s approaching feet down the corridor, and his life begins to flash before his eyes. He is forcefully escorted upstairs and steps out of the gate that closes behind him. Crowds are cheering all around him, chanting for his death. Growling comes from the other gate, and a lion emerges from the shadows, charging at him. Within a few seconds, the jaw had clasped around his neck. Blood was splattered on the floor and the crowd celebrated the demise of the prisoner. This is the cruel practice of gladiator matches, in which those in power force men and beasts below them to clash with each other for sport. I, Emperor Honorius, have decided to bring the abolition of this practice. No more will organize gladiator matches, or they will feel the wrath of the gods and I.

Basically, there's a ball. And the boys have to run, and when they have the ball they get tackled. Ball, tackling, running…yep, that's about it. Oh, and there are no teams. Great.

The YMCA is and was my second home. I'd go there at least 4 days a week just because I was bored and had nothing else to do. My goal every time I stepped onto that basketball court was to make myself a little better and have some fun. It wasn't as nice of a court as the high school due to the slippery floors, the smell of sweat, and the noise of little kids screaming on the other side of the court divider. But it was better than nothing. When I was young I went there to screw around with my friends and to play horse, tips, and some not so serious “serious” games. But as I've grown it's less screwing around and more seriousness so we can become better. Nowadays us high school players, play “noon ball”. Which is games between high school players
The end of the tremendously popular gladiator games ended during the reign of Emperor Honorius. An individual had yelled for the games to cease in the name of Christ, but he was soonly after stoned to death by the outraged audience. He had turned out to be an Egyptian monk named Telemachus. His death was one of the most impact deaths of a martyr in the Colosseum, it had put an end to the battles, however chariot races and other shows of games had went on but the bloodshed was finally over. Later the Roman empire had begun to dwindle. The city was attacked in 410 A.D. by Visigoths, the Roman capital had been moved to the an Italian city near the Colosseum. The visigoths entered Italy and destroymed much of Rome, and without the basic nessecities
“Football is like life. It requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication, and respect for authority.”-Vince Lombardi. Offence is the ones to put points on the board most of the time. There are eleven players in each team. The positions are QBs, RBs, TEs, RGs, LGs, Cs, RTs, LTs, and WRs. The ones that get the ball most are the running backs. Some teams are very good at passing, because their quarterback is a dead on accurate.
Walking with the crowd of Romans to the coliseum was breathtaking as I took a seat I could hear my heart beating in my ear. When the gladiators commenced the show with s chariot procession completed by trumpets then dismounted and ringed the arena, each gladiator saluting the emperor with the line Ave, imperator, morituri te salutant (Hail, Emperor, those who are about to die salute you). The crowd on the edge of their seats as the two men prepare their weapons I cheer in anticipation with the others. We all know this day will be the last for one of them, they circle each other, knowing they have to think fast to capture his opponent rather than killing him on the spot. The gladiators thrust their swords fighting in the burning sun with the
The cold, crisp breeze sprinted through the trees and bushes as I finished zipping up my jacket, exited the car and loaded the boxes into the anxious atmosphere of the Fine Arts Loading Dock. As I walked into the cafeteria, I saw the team greeting me and I knew I was in the right place. However, my happiness was short-lived. The team manager walked up to me and said, “The judges won’t turn off the lights. However, they will do it after the challenge.” It then occurred to me that the projector the team and I had worked on for months, and accounts for 30 points, might possibly fail. I walked toward them and donned my costume while they handed me the itinerary for the next five and a half hours. It showed: “ITINERARY FOR DI REGIONALS TOURNAMENT:

Marissa Pacheco Professor Ryan Ingram Film Appreciation (Dram 2366) 30 Nov 2017 Analysis Project (Spartacus-1960/Gladiator-2000) 1. What’s different and why? Gladiator is in the manner that the main characters became slaves/gladiators and the aspect of how “freedom” is earned. Maximus on the other hand, was a Roman General that refused to serve for the Roman new emperor, Commodus, who had murdered his father, Marcus Aurelius, in order to obtain control of the Roman Empire. The biggest difference between Gladiator and Spartacus is the manner in which their respective freedom is earned. Gladiators freedom is earned thru defeating Commodus, who sentences Maximus to be executed. The story begins after he escapes his captors and rides off to his farm. This is after he discovers that his family has been murdered by said King/Emperor Commodus. Maximus collapses from exhaustion and is then picked up by slave traders and sold to Proximo, thus leading to his voyage of becoming a Gladiator and his fight against the King. Another difference is that Spartacus is pressured into fighting the best gladiator of the Roman army, upon the conclusion of his training however, he is defeated. Afterward he becomes leader of the Army of Slaves and in an effort to gain the slaves freedom back, he leads them to battle. After being captured, Spartacus ultimately has to fight it out with a slave who is also captured and the winner will be crucified. In Gladiator, Gladiators from all over the Roman
