Blog #11


I believe that videos show good rhetoric because it allows you to actually see whats happening and feel it. In this video Al Pacino, who is playing Tony D'Amato the coach for the sharks in the movie "Any Given Sunday" Al is expressing in deep emotion how life is comparable to football. He is explaining that life and football are both a game of inches. This is good rhetoric because it displays his emotions (pathos), and I believe that this speech is overall really well put together.


This video also displays good rhetoric. In the video Kurt Russel portray Herb Brooks, coach of the gold medal mens team USA hockey team, addressed his team with a speech that was purely pathos. He displayed much emotion during this speech, and his team then went on to win the gold medal.
