Apart from their competitive nature, sports are challenging, amusing and exciting. Sports teach ambition, integrity and morality and most of all they bring hope to people and grant them faith to live more days. People go out to see their favorites athletes play, enjoy the shows and give them a sense of hope regardless of the challenges they have on their day to day lives. Sports are among the things that grant people the strength and hope to conquer the challenges. Davies (25-27).Due to their impact, sports have a special place in the community. Many instrumental lessons and development objectives are realized via sports. The value of sports may be underestimated at times for some communities but individuals who are already aware of the value of sports can help in reshaping the perception of the community. Sports’ importance involves a wide range of dynamics that transcend through ethnic, political and social barriers. The relevance of sports affects all language groups, religious preferences and crosses educational levels. As such, various assistance programs engage sports in efforts to reach people to make them aware of substantial issues regarding drug and alcohol education, awareness, advertisements as well as charitable functions. The first video is about the history of Chavez Ravine & Dodger stadium. The video is made by MotoMan YouTube Channel where the guy shares a key Los Angeles Chavez Ravine stadium. According to the video, the stadium sits in large hills promontory next to the famous Major League Baseball’s Dodger stadium. The stadium was founded during the 19th century and named under Julian Chavez who is the Los Angeles councilman involved in purchasing the land. As such, it is worth remembering that before the stadium was converted into Dodger Stadium, it was referred to as Chavez Ravine. The area was the home to tens of Mexican-American families who were forcefully evicted to give way for the construction of the stadium. According to MotoMan, the Los Angeles officials applied political machinations and eminent domain to get rid of the original landowners. The second video in GMS Spiritual Swords YouTube channel involves a family that was among the original owners of the Dodge Stadium. According to the family, the original stadium was as important to them as they still have the memories. The family observes that several communities and families including theirs were ripped apart to give way for the construction of the stadium. The eviction process was violent and ugly and it remains among the sort of living history that the residents never want to remember. The land encompassed more than 315 acres with the main neighborhoods being Bishop, La Loma and Palo Verde. According to the family members in the video, the area had developed an elementary school, a church and a grocery store that was demolished during the forced eviction. Many of the residents raised animals and grew their food. The area was home to a large number of Mexican-American families who were red-lined and prevented from moving to other areas. The third video is called Wild in the Streets. According to the video, Ashbourne inhabitants have played Shrovetide Football for thousands of years. The video observes that Shrovetide Football is the mother to rugby, American football and soccer. The game was played once a year and is regarded as one of the most fascinating sporting events in the world. The game had no rules while the playing field was the nearby town. The annual Shrovetide game is asserted to be the oldest, longest and angriest football in the world. The game takes place in two days and is a pre-Easter extravaganza with goals three miles apart. The game has contributed largely to the culture of Ashbourne because it brings people together every year. Considering that it is a mass football game, it is not determined by eleven a side team as everybody has a chance to take part. The match starts when an individual who is usually a semi-famous local throws a cork-filled ball into a crowd from the town’s main car park at 2 pm. The ball of the match is usually made in the town and handpainted in an attempt to honor the dignitary. Hundreds of people are gathered as they try to get the ball to either side of the goal at any possible means. The match is played in two days until a goal is scored after 5.30 pm. A new ball is released to the starting point if a goal is scored before then. Although the game is labelled football, only a few rules exist as potential scorers have to jump to hit the ball three times on their respective scoring post. Traffic problems in Southern California are blamed for the lack of strong fanatical fan base in the region. In most times, the fans arrive late and leave early to avoid being caught up in traffic jams. Southern California is known for having a disintegrated group of fans who only show up in the event of something dramatic in the pitch. According to Davies (29), the truth is that fifteen million people are living in Southern California who supports various teams instead of sticking to one team. Despite the area boasting of a beautiful year around the weather, there are no spectators seen in the spectator venues. Secondly, the teams in the area are not competent enough, a characteristic that has turned away a large number of fans. The Dodgers are among the famous sports teams that not won a world series since 1988. On the other hand, the angels have recorded a miserable streak lining up with some of the most unrecognizable teams in the country such as Mike Trout. Sports have both advantages and disadvantages in the sense that they have helped in building some of the strongest communities like Ash Bourne and equally destroyed others like Chavez Ravine. Daily lives are filled by various sports aspects ranging from live events, social media and TV. On the other hand, the sporting world is also fixated with several negative stories such as Chavez Ravine story. Considering the value attached to Shrovetide Football it could be good to conclude that sports have brought more good than harm to the community. Kim (30-33) asserts that fan obsessions have led to the rise of damaging topics with collegiate and professional athletes being associated with all sorts of negative stories. However, the sporting industry has amplified uncountable feel-good stories that have even inspired the production of great documentaries and movies such as the Forest Gump. Sports have also inspired public relations through the creation of a marketing vehicle in the millions of live sports that are played daily. Some organizations have also been doing right by issuing valuable PR case studies from which businesses get inspiration. In the US alone, the youths sporting industry is worth $15 billion with the cost of participating skyrocketing. Sports in the country have also equipped young individuals with valuable skills that they use in enhancing their living standards. On the other hand, sports have been turned into charity avenues with famous players being involved in charitable events across the world. According to Kim (20-27), golf alone has helped in driving close to $3.9 billion to charity. Professional tournaments have paid back to the community through philanthropic contributions. As such, a large sum of money collected from sporting activities has helped in the funding of such organizations like WHO and UNHCR. In conclusion, Sports teach ambition, integrity and morality and most of all they bring hope to people and grant them faith to live more days. It is worth remembering that before the stadium was converted into Dodger Stadium, it was referred to as Chavez Ravine. The area was the home to tens of Mexican-American families who were forcefully evicted to give way for the construction of the stadium. The second video in GMS Spiritual Swords YouTube channel involves a family that was among the original owners of the Dodge Stadium. The third video observes that Shrovetide Football is the mother to rugby, American football and soccer and is among the most popular sports in the world. Considering the value attached to Shrovetide Football it could be good to conclude that sports have brought more good than harm to the community. Works Cited Davies, Larissa E.
