Jince Jacob Sociology Reading Assignment #7 This week’s reading focused on the sociology behind sports, bringing to mind how  actively involved our societies are in this field almost like a religion. This week’s reading also  helps bring into mind how society can affect a person’s sports participation, whether it is an  increase or a decrease. The chapter ends off with examples of traditional sports and a Seinfeld  way of looking at them, and also bringing into light modern sports. The chapter’s first point is in the role of sports in our society and it starts off with a very  good point. Delaney reminds us that sports have been referred in reflecting the morals, values  and culture of society. However, in American culture we find that sports holds winning and  success to be highly valued and this leads to winning at all costs, which in turn plays a role in  major deviant behavior, such as abusing drugs, gambling and extreme competiveness. If this is  true this makes me wonder about our Olympic teams who have been trained here and hold  these same ideas, because they represent us to the world and they reflect our nation. This also

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
