How important do you think showing emotions is to an athlete?

How important do you think showing emotions is to an athlete? Topic: How to write a pitch for a show

Question: I've played softball since I was five, and I just quit my sophmore year of college, and my past coaches biggest complaint about me is that I am emotionless on the field. Some wanted me to look angrier. They thought it was important to 'send a message' to the other team. I've always hated those coaches cos I felt they didn't understand me. I needed to be emotionless to pitch. I needed to be clean of all that garbage so I could think clearly. However, since this was a complaint from more than two of my past coaches- I was curious to see what other people in the world of sports (or even outside) thought about this. My personal reason for being emotionless is because I am a very emotionally chaotic person. While my teammates soley know me as being stoic/shy, I know that beneath the exterior that I am a highly sensitive. I don't want any extreme emotions in me cuz they distract and inhibit me. What is ur opinion? Is necessary or more favorable to openly show aggression/attitude in sports?

they should understand, you can only pitch with your face emotionless, that's fine. when i write or draw characatures for money i made the strangest faces, not angry, but odd, its how my face moves, and they have no right to complain if i do a good job when i'm done. so keep your face emotionless if it get the job done for you, and if you still get complaints then draw a thin black line over your eye brows and mouth to look intimidating. they would be able the notice the pencil from long distances, and everybody's happy, well... intimidated. good luck

My old school baseball coach and medical trainer at my school told us to go into the shower, I know this sounds disgusting, and urinate on your feet or where they will be standing. Since urine is very acidic it will kill the bacteria.

You need to go back to the doctor. Also if you have not, get new sneakers. Wash and dry your feet twice a day and use an antifungal (such as lotrimin or tinactin). Make sure you keep your feet dry as possible.

Sometimes shutting off your emotions does good. If you can't think clearly then pitching without emotions is alright. Don't always shut them off though. I've made that mistake. Sometimes it is best to actually play the game like everyone else does, ya know?

Since he's Black and Obama is Black, the right wing media feel Tiger's case will help to reinforce the stereotypes their public already believes.

It should be given to whoever is the sickest, has been waiting the longest, and has been compliant with his treatment . Nothing else should matter I've been on dialysis, and those are some of the criteria that are used in real life situations. I was told at my dialysis center that if a person is on a waiting list for a kidney, but does not come to their dialysis sessions, they will be removed from the active waiting list. Transplant teams cannot give organs to someone who has not proven to be compliant with their treatment - they might also not be compliant with their medication & labs once they got a kidney. But if you're just wanting this for the purposes of a classroom discussion/presentation, I'd say the mom because she is probably trying to take care of a lot of people, and needs her health more.
