FUTURE ANCIENT RELICS: WHAT WILL BE THE VISITED SPORTS SITES 1,000 YEARS FROM NOW

Colosseum, Italy

“They will eventually come to visit and not watch.”


the new colosseum

The Colosseum was a stadium where numerous sporting events took place during the hay day of the Romans. Built by the Flavian Dynasty in 72 AD, it could only be described as their soccer, baseball, and football stadiums. Only difference between that time period and today, is that people fought to the death at that time. The more civil we became as a society, the more civil the sport became. And that is what brings us to today. But in the next 1,000 years, will we look back and be able to visit some of these relics that we have today? Or will they be demolished and only shown in photographic and video form? Because anytime a stadium is no longer used we tear it down.

the olympics

If you ever get the chance, look up the photos of abandoned Olympic stadiums and other venues. There are some venues that have been abandoned for decades, even longer. The ones in America don’t stand long before they are demolished and replaced with something else. But the stadiums in other foreign countries stand for a very long period of time. Some look older than what they are because of over-growth. Yet there is something so interesting about looking back over time at a structure that would have been occupied by tens of thousands of people. Now it has long gone to decay.

 disbelief of how they competed

It’s hard to believe man once had entertainment where people fought to the death. Tens of thousands of fans would cheer at the sight of someone losing their life. Now we kneel around the person if they get a gruesome injury. And that only means that in life we as a civilization get softer and the more time progress. So that could mean our entertainment would change as well from a hard hitting football, to something safer. Could we be watching a sport like hockey and football headed for extension in the future? Because the rules change to make it safer, but more and more people lose interest with every rule change. Never say never because the always remember the Colosseum.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
