Sport plays a huge role in our everyday life. Whether itâ€™s physically, mentally or spiritually, sport has a big impact on anyoneâ€™s life, especially, to the average sport fan. .
As we discussed in class, Iâ€™ve gone through the Role Transitional Model. Primary Socialization is when I started to play sports at a very young age. In organized leagues Iâ€™ve skated, played soccer, played basketball and played baseball. Re-socialization, I was able to transfer my skills in the sports above to each other. De-socialization, unfortunately, happened a few times where I was out on the sidelines with usually an ankle sprain or wrist sprain. Fortunately, I never had a very serious injury and have to go through adverse socialization.
Personally, sport has a great impact on my own life and I owe many thanks to sports. Ever since I was little, I was always involved in some sport or another. The people Iâ€™ve met through sports have led me to new experiences, new lifestyles and new opportunities. Today, I still keep in touch with many of my former teammates. I have met some really great people, whether it is my own teammates or professional athletes. When I was little and living in the States, I met a guy named Grant Hill. He used to play for Detroit Pistons. My friendâ€™s dad had extremely good connections and luckily I was able to eat dinner with him and see a basketball game. He told me his story and actually seemed interested in what I had to say. Grant Hill gave me new appreciation for basketball. Besides the people Iâ€™ve met, the sport itself has influenced me greatly. Participating in sport allows me to feel better about myself. Itâ€™s a great stress reliever and lets you stay fit. I am more outgoing and I owe it a lot to sports. Not only has my life been influenced by sports, but it also controls it. Just about every job Iâ€™ve had has been related to sports.
