Regardless of age sex ethnicity or personal interest everyone at one point in their life had somebody that they looked up to or modeled their life around It could have been a parent teacher priest or perhaps someone famous Many young kids today look up to celebrities which include actors musicians and most notably professional athletes Most kids see celebrities as heroes and often look up to them because they envy that persons position in life and in most cases would like to grow up to be like that person One reason why kids look up to celebrities is because theyre very well known and can regularly be seen on television thus having their personal and private lives be easily accessible for the publics viewing When in the eye of the public 247 these celebrities are faced with constant media and public scrutiny having everything they do watched closely under a microscope Even when an athlete does something remotely wrong its completely blown out of proportion I dont believe that athletes should be held responsible for the actions of others due to that particular athletes behavior I know that many people probably disagree with my standing on this issue but I will attempt to explain myself One would think that growing up as someone who emulated professional athletes I would take the opposing viewpoint But the fact is I realize a majority of the professional athletes either dont want the responsibility as a role model or dont have the particular image or personality that is regularly classified with a typical role model As a youngster my role models were indeed professional athletes as noted by the posters on my bedroom wall still to this day But my role models were the good guys of sports I idolized such players as Cal Ripken Jr Michael Jordan and Joe Montana whose determination and hard-work on and off the field taught me a great deal about sports
