Report from the soccer game today  from coach Greg.  So proud of that team
Thanks as always.  It was a tale of two hallfs.  First half, they played in our half much of the time, had the wind.  Defense was worked to it’s max.  They scored on a long shot that the wind took.  Gil played it well, but it was hit hard and slipped throughout her fingers as it was up in the air, and fell in.  I thought we were down 1-0 at half, but after the game I found out we had a goal in the first half.  So, 1-1.  But needless to say, I challenged the girls to dominate this team with passing and winning the 50/50 balls.  They did.  The other team only had 3 runs into our side of the field.  I had the outside backs pressure higher on the pitch.  They did.  Haley, savannah played amazing.  Emma and sadie played some outside back to help the rotation and did good.  Rachel hit on on a penalty kick, and it hit the post.  Emma made a great run, after the outside and mid fielder switched the ball to the other side and she split 2’defenders and had a shot hinthe post.  Taylor and Lex did wonderful.  Taylor hit a shot from 30 and sunk it.  It told the girls that we had the wind so look to pepper the goal.  They did.  I thought it was 1-1 at that point and we had two more minutes left.  I challenged them to finish hard and get the winning goal.  Emma did in the final 20 seconds.
You would have been very proud of them.  That second half  was total domination.
Safe trip home.  See you Monday.
Oh, Rachel was not feeling good.  I played Lindsay at holding, she is a true holding mid.  She won 3 balls with headers out Of the air, protected her back line with her work rate, and connected very well to the mid fielders.  Sara played out of her mind in mid field.  She listens well and played some wonderful through balls to set the team up many times.
Great game!

More evidence, as if it were needed, that Santorum isnt ready for the big time, acting like a 2 year old boy who didnt get a pony for his birthday. What a classless individual.  he would have imploded under his own lack of gravotas in the first week of an administration. Hopefully his bedroom is padded.

Imagine if this had been a Republican  political candidate. What would the list of follow-up questions have included?

  • Why do you classify this as an error?
  • Was it an error of omission or commission?
  • What is the purpose of editing?
  • Why wasn’t it posted that this was an edited call, in the same way that text edits are annotated when materieal is ommitted?
  • How do you decide if the edit is faithful to the larger original context?
  • How does this compare to your standards?
  • Is this typical of your editing process? How do you know?
  • Who monitors you?

Santorum: the democrat’s dream

mainstrean Republicans are worried about Santorum because they are worried that independents will think this is how all Republicans think.
