    I've read a few of his blog entries... Guy has a way with words...

          The emphasis is on method. It concentrates on forms for consistent observation of a team in real time, or for breaking down film. If one was really serious about learning to scout, Football Scouting Methods is the most thorough and effective guide.

            A lot of twisted fun if you don't mind the "out there" grotesque type of stuff.

                  Do you mean the short story by Richard Connell? Great story which was part of a unit I once taught on short stories.

                      • I am soon to read "Go Set A Watchman" which is Harper Lee's much delayed follow up to "To Kill A Mockingbird" (1960). It is going to be tough because my understanding is that the beloved Atticus Finch is not the civil rights icon we thought he was.

                        However, after previewing the story, there may be some value in it, from a literary perspective. You see "To Kill A Mockingbird" was told from the view of Scout, a 6 year old. So that does make sense to some degree. We envisioned Attacus as a hero, and a man we could so admire. As a 26 year old she sees the world so much differently, which sadly translates to a very disappointing reality. So, from the mere perspective angle, it does make sense. Six year olds see life through different glasses. Unfortunately, we may not like what the 26 year old leaves us with.

                        In that sense, many of us will have wished there was no follow up.

                              My wife is part way through it. I'll let her make the call on whether or not I read it. And If I don't, I'll just watch the old movie again, starring the "highly respectable" Gregory Peck, and let it be the only version.
