Bleacher Report, Tim Keeney

Adrian Peterson Was Accused of Second Child Abuse Incident of 2013

Ethos: The author has credibility by being an author of Bleacher Report, and also listing himself as a "Featured Columnist".

Logos: The writer appeals to the readers emotions by incorporating many quotes about the situation. The situation is affecting everyone's emotions, considering Adrian Peterson is being accused of two child abuse charges. The writer also appears to the reader's emotions by displaying quoted conversations about the cases, showing how horrible Peterson was to his kids.

Pathos: The statistics and the information given are very important, especially during a rough time for the NFL. This is a very important case, and the fact that he's getting accused of beating another one of his children shows how horrible he is to them. A conversation he and the mother of the children had was horrible as well.

Pet Peeves

I have many pet peeves that include:

1. When someone is ordering food after waiting in a line and then once they get to the front of the line, they take 5 minutes to order because they don't know what they want.

2. People who drive wicked slow and are below the age of 60 years old.

3. When you're stuck in traffic and you're just trying to go get some Wendy's.

4. When that guy in pickup basketball calls a foul every time he touches to ball.

5. Haters.

6. When people overuse the word literally.
