    • Why does it matter?
    • The game has evolved because of the media
  • Basketball
    • In 1891, 18 men at a YMCA, shooting a soccer ball into peach baskets using 13 rules written by James Naismith were the first basketball players
    • They played for fun in the winter to pass the time
    • They did not play for money and no one watched
  • 1891 vs. 2006
  • How the Game Changed
    • Players are paid to play
    • There are thousands of people at the arena watching the game and millions of people watching or listening to the game on TV, the radio, or the internet
    • Every game is broadcasted, advertised, and written about before and afterwards
    • Predictions are made and bets are placed
  • How the Game Changed

    • What comes to mind when you see an athlete making full court shots and using Powerade?
  • Use of Athletes in Advertising
    • Messages they are trying to send out:
    • Their product will enhance your performance
    • If professionals use their product, you should too
  • Masculinity
    • Recent studies on gender and sports media find that sports commentary reinforces perceptions of "violent masculinity"
    • By praising athletes who continue to play while injured
    • By using language of conflict and war to describe action, sports commentary reinforces violence and aggression as exciting and rewarding behavior
  • Masculinity
    • Sports broadcasts focus heavily on violence in professional sports, often replaying and over-analyzing footage of graphic injuries, accidents and fights
    • Conflict between players of opposing teams is often created or inflated to promote upcoming games.

  • Femininity
    • Female ads are rich cultural narratives created from multiple dialogues about the roles, athleticism, and sexuality of women
    • The women’s bodies are photographed in certain ways to facilitate the male gaze and emphasize female sexuality
    • Female advertising is less about the sport itself and more about being a woman

  • Femininity
    • The fantasy woman sports model possesses all the markers of female beauty in our culture
    • She has long hair (preferably blonde), large lips, and perfect skin
    • She is slender and has a flat stomach
    • Our fantasy woman is shaved, tanned, and her skin glistens with oil or water from the swimming pool
    • Similar to porn, the most important parts of her body are her butt and breasts
