Think of your favorite sport activities including watching sports television shows. How do these activities help shape your ideas about your life and how you interact with others? How do sports bring you, and others, a sense of meaning and purpose in social life? How are sports related to important spheres of social influence such as family, media, religion, and community?   ************************************************************** SOC 318 Week 2 Assignment Dedicated to   Sports Phenomenon (2 Papers) For more classes visit   www.snaptutorial.com  This Tutorial contains 2 Papers Dedicated to Sports Phenomenon. Submit a paper, in APA format, that addresses the “dedicated to sports” phenomenon. Applying each of the main types of sociology of sports theories (cultural theories, interactionist theories, and structural theories), answer the question: “Why are some people fanaticall y interested in playing and watching sports?”     The paper must be two to four pages in length (excluding the title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style. You must use at least two scholarly sources in addition to the textbook to support  your claims and subclaims. Cite your sources in text and on the reference page. For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar in your online course.   ************************************************************** SOC 318 Week 2 DQ 1 Race and Sports For more classes visit   www.snaptutorial.com    Race and Sports.

We also hear and read regular reports of athletes committing crimes and carrying unlawful weapons.
