Sports are Entertaining and Fun
Sports in society today can be entertaining to watch and also fun to play for both men and women of all ages. I am a person that takes sports very seriously in my life. I enjoy playing sports as much as I enjoy watching them on television. I started playing baseball when I was seven years old, and played up until I graduated high school. I also played basketball from fifth grade to a junior in high school. I think that I am so involved in sports because my family takes sports very seriously, and they got me involved in them at an early age. My Dad, Mom, brothers and cousins have all been active members of sports throughout their lives. We all enjoy doing anything involved with sports. It could be actively playing a sport, watching an event on television, or going and watching a sporting event with a group of people. I think we live in an area that has a large history of sports and many traditions and customs that go along with it. By living close to Pittsburgh my entire life I have been able to experience and appreciate the history and legacy that our sport teams have offered for so many years. I have been a huge fan of all the Pittsburgh sports teams for my entire life. I have been to numerous Pirate and Steeler home games with family and friends. I think this is why sporting events can be so entertaining because you get to spend quality time with your family and friends and share in all of the memories to come.

I want to find out what sports men and women like to play and watch and compare the results to each other. I want to see how people choose the sports in which they participate in, and also watch on television since there are so many sports out there. I want to find out which sports are the most popular overall by men and women. I want to find out how men and women react when they are watching their favorite sporting event on television, or in person. I want to see if they get really excited during the game, or if they just sit there and watch closely. I want to see what traditions or pre-game rituals that people have before watching or participating in a sport. I want to find out what sports people played in high school, and if they are still involved with that sport in any way today.
The three primary research methods that I chose were: surveys, interviews, and observations. I thought that these three primary research methods would be the most beneficial in finding out most of the answers to all of my questions. I made a survey of ten questions related to sports. Some of the basic questions that I asked were: What is your gender? How well do you like sports? Did you play sports in high school? Do you watch sports on television? Some of the more in depth...
