My weekend was too short.
Our first soccer game went well. We lost, BUT it was the first time I’ve ever seen one of LilZ’s coaches actually have control over the team. They listened to him, and obeyed him. It was beautiful. Most of the time, it’s some guy screaming over a bunch of boys who are too preoccupied beating each other up and finding things on the field to throw to listen to what he’s saying. We have several REALLY good players who actually seem to like to pass, which is a nice change. It should be a good season.
The game ended up getting called in the third quarter for lightning. And while all the other parents were grabbing chairs and children and running toward their cars to beat the rain – I was chasing after them all screaming “Wait! Do you want a snack? I have snacks! Anyone? Stop! It’s Cheez-Its and Cookie Granola Bars!” Yeah. I got about 8 of them handed out. And half of those were to kids NOT on our team. Oh well.
We saw Without a Paddle yesterday. It was okay. All the funny parts were in the previes. But the weird thing was that Seth Green and Mathew Lilliard were actually playing adults in this flick. When did they make that transition? They’ve been playing high school kids, for like 20 years. It was weird. From the previews I thought they were STILL playing high school kids, but nope. Thirty-year-olds.
Finally? We watched V: the miniseries last night. HA! It was AWESOME. I remeber watching the tv show as a kid, and watching the mini-series yesterday reminded me of bits and pieces of the television series (which I loved). I think I may order the rest of the TV series from amazon.com today. Did you watch that show at all? The mini-series was still pretty good. Even TWENTY years later. I got really into it, even with the crappy effects.
Or maybe that’s just me.
