You lay on your back with controller in hand and everytime you see a meteor you press A and it tallies the number you glimpse.
Not unlike a wireless abacus.

Too much ambient light?

|20 weeks 1 day ago||Two tools I recommend highly...||
1) Put a football on the end of a broomstick (lots of duct tape) and use it every time they do sprints or go off a cadence. Get them used to moving only after the ball has moved. This has paid dividends for our team the past three years. Hard count them and try to draw them offsides. More sprints for every offside.
2) Build a couple of simple chutes so the kids learn to stay low as they fire out from their stances. I screwed a four foot long 1" X 2" into a square foot base and put a few pegs near the top to hold a piece tubing across to another stand built the same way. I built four of these stands making two chutes. If they come out of their stance too high, then they knock the plastic tube off, so they learn to stay low. And in football, LOW MAN WINS!
Also, keep a few extra broomsticks around. Have O linemen put their hands about 15" apart on the broomstick and D linemen put their hands 4" outside of the O lineman's hands. Then have them go at it. Helps teach the O linemen to keep their hands in to avoid holding penalties.

and have experience playing the game, then the move is not an issue. If he can coach football, he can coach anywhere on the field.

|27 weeks 2 days ago||I have a tough time arguing against anything Bielein does||
I'll be watching poor defense and lack of hustle and I'll start to yell at the TV, but then "serenity now" sets in and I think Coach Bielein knows what he's doing. And I believe that....
But, GRIII is overhyped IMO and should be replaced with a legitimate scoring threat like Irvin. Glen has NO handle, cannot hit wide open shots and does not hustle!
Ok, I feel better. Please prove me wrong on Tuesday Mr. III.

And he had a spiral that would break blood vessels as a senior. At that point I believe he was headed to ND?
|29 weeks 13 hours ago||Fracasa will be hard to replace||
Went to his QB camp from 1981-1984 and he was an awesome instructor. Brennan, Yarema, and Terry Andrisiak were all asst. coaches at the camp.
Glad he went out on top.

Oh, I'm 20 now? Allow me to exhibit all facets the fans have been waiting for. Inside, outside, mid-range, above the rim and all over the baseline. The fire in his eyes and the GRowlll! Sure hope it becomes the norm.

Please, slowly set down the spatula and step away from the batter.
|52 weeks 14 hours ago||Gibbons wasn't?||
Kobe wasn't? Check your facts. Kobe's case was dropped. He later settled a civil suit. Nothing criminal. And I don't necessarily think settling a civil case means guilt. Many times people/parties settle just to be done with the constant he said/she said. And Kobe could write a check no problem.
Tyson is another story. I'm not saying he was innocent, i'm just saying that when the allegations initially came out, before anything was decided, I gave them the benefit of the doubt - just like our legal system does.
|52 weeks 15 hours ago||Well,||
It happened to me on campus at the end of 1988. Police tracked me down after two weeks because I tried to get in touch with the girl again. They interviewed me, her, her friends, her past growing up in Miami. 3 weeks later (just before x-mas and finals) they met with me and informed me that the D.A. was not going to press charges because her friends corroborated my story and her past indicated similar accusations. They advised me to take more precautions when hooking up with drunk and horny ladies.
She threw herself all over me at a frat party and begged me to take her home. Luckily her friends were with her and witnessed her behavior, but she was evidently so hammered that she woke up the next morning and screamed rape.
I did nothing wrong other than using poor judgement in hooking up with someone who was too drunk. If anybody was raped it was me that night. And once again, her roommate was in the room and like the other girls out with her that night, the roommate also corroborated my side.
But it screwed me and my finals studying, and there's sort of a guilt by association, like "you must be sort of guilty if you were even accused." No! Not guilty at all! Just false accusations pure and simple.
It sucked big time.
So whenever I hear a story about this sort of thing, whether it be Kobe, Tyson, or Gibbons, I always give them the benefit of the doubt.
