Disrupting the Professional and Athletic Stereotypes

by David Bian

My project has two goals. It is a common conception that athletes lack intelligence and depth of personality, and thus my first goal is to find professional writing by professional athletes. My second goal is to disrupt another commonality; athletic stories tend to be very serious, all about pushing through the pain and adversity to emerge a champion. My final project takes the form of a printed booklet, but I am including the catalog description here to document it. If this were a real final project I would also include at least an image or two and perhaps a PDF of the booklet. Instead, to show how images are included in Web pages, I am including a comical picture of squash players.
