Need Help on a Paper I'm writing!

Hey, I'm writing my senior paper, (some bullcrap that gets you a "special" diploma of distinction for graduating high school) and I need to do an interview so I figured I'd do it on here. I know the subject is one everyone has heard about, and it's not a real possibility and really no one even want to hear about it. But please just help me out.

The Questions:

1. Would you like to see paintball in the ESPN X-Games?

2. What's the possibility of paintball being included in the X-Games?

3. What could this inclusion mean for the sport of paintball?

4. Any other comments?


Thanks a ton, Ross

The Questions:

1. Would you like to see paintball in the ESPN X-Games?

Of course we would. I think the industry would like to see our sport recognized and receive the media attention it deserves.

2. What's the possibility of paintball being included in the X-Games?

With the right company and individual leading the charge, I think we would have 75/25 chance. Our sport lacks big corporate sponsors and I don't mean paintball companies. Have you ever seen a Gatorade commercial with paintball players?

3. What could this inclusion mean for the sport of paintball?

Growth for the sport in a positive way. Maybe a shot of seeing paintball as an Olympic sport. Hey if you said to me 25 years ago that snowboarding would be in the Olympics, I would have said not. This could open the doorway for programs for underprivileged kids. Our sport builds teamwork, confidence, and most of all sportsmanship.

4. Any other comments?

I love this sport. Have a lot of good friends today because of it. It's time to start paving the way to ensure the future of it.

i think to help give your paper some credibility try and get up with one of the Damage players, that way you could at least have some real professional insight on your paper.

I honestly only need one person to fill it out, so this is perfect. Thanks, Shadow. But that's a strong point, thanks for your input!
