So I’ve heard so much bad press about this series, but also some good press. Reviews are mixed, but of course there is always a story behind things. What I’ve heard is that this entire series was started with just 6 weeks lead time. Normally a TV series, especially one of this complexity should take several months to even a few years. Character design, set design and story design take time. I’ve heard that this series was rushed because IMAX needed a filler for the late summer.

I’m in the middle of watching Episode 1 as I write this and I’m liking it. The acting isn’t that bad so far and the opening scene was clearly made for IMAX but so far so good. The only odd thing I have to add at the moment is that when the two kids under go terragenisis they don’t go into a cocoon…. This series should run in parallel to ABC’s SHIELD and even makes reference to terragens release into the world.

I also love BlackBolt, a king who has to rule in silence or his very word could cause destruction. More to come after I watch Episode #2!

What an amazing movie! I loved it. 9 out of 10 stars. There were a few spots were the story wore somewhat thin, but overall it was funny, well written and the special effects were extremely well done!

 

Not going to go into spoilers or story re-hash, you will just go see it.

I’ve been playing PUBG for about 3 weeks now and I can’t get enough. It’s been so bad, other games have fallen off my radar and my youtube channel is all PUBG footage. (here go check!) https://www.youtube.com/user/GMSpada

However, it’s great fun and they’ve promised to release a new patch every month while it’s in early access. I can’t wait to see how the game evolves.

Coaching a Young Girls Soccer Team Part 1

Hello there everyone! (and my future self)

This year was a special year. I had the pleasure of having my daughter want to take her second season of soccer via a local soccer league. She’s 10 years old and she is very fond of the sport and puts all her effort and drive into it. However, this season the league was short coaches for the girls teams and as time got down to the wire, my daughter asked me to coach her team. Now, I haven’t played competitive soccer since middle school were I played left and right halfback. I loved it, it was a great experience and having the chance to teach my daughter soccer sparked not only pride in me, but a surge of love.

I found that I would have 5 total girls age, 10-12 years old. None of the girls have had any real soccer experience so I had my work cut out for me. We had two, one hour practices before our first game. We worked very hard. The girls were amazing and even though we lost our first game It was a starting point.

For each following Saturday we practiced. Working on fundamentals, drills knowing where to be when the ball was in play. That was the first big hurtle. The girls just looked lost, but we practiced and they got better. The next game, and the one following the teams playing improved leaps and bounds and even though we lost you could see the girls get better. And so we go into the final few games and we have a practice tomorrow. The girls are ready, I can see it in them. They understand the game, the know where to be 90% of the time and they are building their confidence.

It’s my hope that we rise to the occasion and that the girls win their next game!

 

PS. I hope to have a small site or section of this site setup on how to coach 10-13 year old girls in soccer who have never played.. = )
