EBook Description: Princeton University Press | 2010 | ISBN: 069113751X | 336 pages | PDF | 1,7 MB Professional sports today have truly become a global force, a common language that anyone, regardless of their nationality, can understand. Yet sports also remain distinctly local, with regional teams and the fiercely loyal local fans that follow them. This book examines the twenty-first-century phenomenon of global sports, in which professional teams and their players have become agents of globalization while at the same time fostering deep-seated and antagonistic local allegiances and spawning new forms of cultural conflict and prejudice. Andrei Markovits and Lars Rensmann take readers into the exciting global sports scene, showing how soccer, football, baseball, basketball, and hockey have given rise to a collective identity among millions of predominantly male fans in the United States, Europe, and around the rest of the world. They trace how these global--and globalizing--sports emerged from local pastimes in America, Britain, and Canada over the course of the twentieth century, and how regionalism continues to exert its divisive influence in new and potentially explosive ways. Markovits and Rensmann explore the complex interplay between the global and the local in sports today, demonstrating how sports have opened new avenues for dialogue and shared interest internationally even as they reinforce old antagonisms and create new ones. Gaming the World reveals the pervasive influence of sports on our daily lives, making all of us citizens of an increasingly cosmopolitan world while affirming our local, regional, and national identities.

Medida que crecemos los músculos tienden a acortarse y contraerse, lo que nos hace perder la elasticidad y el grado de relajación que teníamos cuando éramos niños. Poco a poco empezamos a sentir el cuerpo lento de reflejos, rígido, y notamos un rendimiento decreciente en los ejercicios físicos. Es fácil también que, como resultado de dicho proceso surjan molestias en la espalda u otras zonas delicadas del organismo. La práctica de deportes no consigue aliviar enteramente esas deficiencias, pues con ellos se añaden tensiones suplementarias a los músculos y no se consigue detener su proceso de contracción. Los ejercicios de estiramiento que describe este extra no presentan tales inconvenientes. Todos ellos van dirigidos a devolver la flexibilidad y la relajación al cuerpo, disminuyendo el anquilosamiento de los músculos y las articulaciones. Esto los convierte en un método excelente para retrasar la vejez. Son ejercicios sencillos, aptos para cualquier edad, que se realizan siempre dentro de los límites propios de cada persona y sin espíritu de competición. CONTENIDO: - Guía completa de ejercicios para aprender a estirar cada parte del cuerpo. - Estiramientos para los diversos momentos del día: al levantarse, andando; después de haber estado sentado; para la espalda; para mayores de 50 años; viendo la televisión, etc. - series específicas de estiramiento para evitar las tensiones provocadas por cada deporte: artes marciales; baloncesto, balonmano, beísbol, ciclismo, correr, danza, esquí nórdico, esquí alpino, frontón, fútbol, gimnasia, golf, halterofilia, hockey, natación, patinaje artístico, surf, squash, tenis, voleibol, waterpolo, etc. - Ejercicios de fotalecimiento muscular para correr o ir en bicicleta: programas semanales y técnicas correctas. - Notas sobre alimentación. - Como cuidar la espalda (apéndice final).

Harper | 2009-05-01 | ISBN: 0061699926 | 256 pages | PDF | 2,6 MB<br>In 1919, the Boston Red Sox traded Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees to finance a Broadway show. In 1968, NBC turned off the Jets-Raiders game with only seconds left to show the made-for-TV movie Heidi. In 1994, Tonya Harding decided the best way to win Olympic gold was by taking out Nancy Kerrigan's kneecap. In all of these situations, and many, many more, there is just one question fans can ask: What were they thinking?!<br>In these pages, sportswriter and fellow fan Kyle Garlett recounts the top sports blunders that made you tear out your hair, beat your chest in agony, and yell at the TV until your neighbors called the cops. Whether it's boneheaded coaches, idiotic general managers, or temporarily insane players, every fan has seen his team go from the brink of victory to total defeat for no logical reason. Whether it's baseball, football, golf, hockey, or any other sport, you'll discover what really happened during these painful moments and why they ended up the unbelievable way they did.
