UCLA Fires Jim Mora
Yep. They let him go. Unsuccessful season after losing to USC. It appears even the quarterback saying he’d delay the NFL wasn’t enough to save the coach’s job. Now it appears they’re going after Chip Kelly hard. What’s the toughest job for Chip Kelly? Recruiting. UCLA has all of these tests and academic requirements that athletes still have to do to get into the school. You could be a young Tom Brady in the making and yet it’s still up in the air as to whether they can get you into the program.
Dan has a good take on it all.
Justice League Mini-Review
I don’t understand why DC has such a hard time putting this together with a decent script. I don’t know if they’re just in a hurry or what they’re doing. Steppenwolf was such a boring villain. All he had was an axe and would throw around the Justice League members. You take a look at Superman (The Richard Donner films) and you always had a worthy villain. Lex Luthor or General Zod, etc. Then it flew off the train when you started putting inferior villains into the movies. Well, this was another example of that. Wonder Woman worked as they were largely able to shoot in Europe and Patty Jenkins had complete control. All of these stories leaking in that the CEO of Warner Bros told whoever that the movie had to be two hours and hiring a new director mid-way – all of these are issues that should have never happened.
My mini- takeaway:
- Ben Affleck did a good job portraying an older and wiser Bruce Wayne. Most of the Batman scenes were well done.
- Gal Gadot steals the scenes largely in the movie.
- Flash is around for comic relief and is character they could have done a better job of taking the wise cracking Flash to the screen. Best joke was perhaps Flash saying that he doesn’t understand ‘Brunch’
One of the oddest rounds of late. But it’s definitely one of my best since recovering from my wrist injury. What’d odd? I was on the driving range warming up and I was just striping the ball. One of my best warm-ups. I get out on the course and it’s +6 on the front nine holes. I made the turn and I was thinking ,”This wasn’t how I was hitting it on the range.” So I just relaxed and tried to slow things down. Boom! Back nine – one under par.
My buddy Doug – I’m not sure what happened. He shows up with no warm-up. No practice putting. Then he gets on the course and boom explodes for a 94. Gee – I wonder why?!?!
