Refs must be related to the ones doing my nephews high school football games. Obvious holds, pass interference, false starts, offsides not called.I really don't understand soccer, or the ref needs to be banned from night games because his vision is obviously impaired with no field lights.
So last night minisnick has his first goal of the season at his soccer game last night. Only to have it called back as offsides. I honestly don't know how the ref came to that conclusion. It wasn't a two on one break away situation. The boys had been near the outer box for several minutes so the entire defense (we play 11, so 6 playing defense at the moment) was somewhere in front of the net. They were ganging up on a teammate in the center, like 3 on 1. He found a opening amongst the feet and passed to minisnick who got open and basically booted it past the goalie in the far corner of the net.
Both teams wore blue so maybe in the dusk evening light he mistook which blue stood where??
Our boys also got called on lifting the back leg during a throw in, when the toe barely left the ground...being less then 5 ft away I saw it much more clearly than the ref across the field, but yet when the other team player was literally flinging his back leg up in the air literally right in front of us multiple times and no calls by the ref.
Our shorter boys were getting intentionally elbowed to the face the entire game...again no calls. The one that passed Minisnick ball will likely have a black eye this morning. We saw it happen right in front of us, it was deliberate, and he sent him to the ground for several moments but the ref didn't stop play or call the penalty. They got sick of it and had to resort to becoming soccer diva drama kings anytime they got a serious elbow to face or intentional tripped to get the penalties called.
The local FB page posted a picture of a woman's big Mac yesterday - three buns, sauce, lettuce... they left out the burger.okay so I have that stupid new McDonald's rewards app on my phone. I have enough to get a free Happy meal. We went after a sunday afternoon soccer game to get dinner and when I went to go use the free happy meal reward it said "Not available during diner" When the hell am I allowed to use it then? There aren't breakfast happy meals. When does diner even start? They only a have an official menu switch to stop the full breakfast menu.
This is the biggest difference between 3 years old and 4 years old. Before, we could either tell him there was no McDonalds around or they were closed. Now he knows better because he can read signs. And yes, their happy meals/toys are better. Before, Wendys was the "go-to" when stopping for a quick bite on long trips. Those days are over. Now it's McD's so I'm trying to figure out what the safest menu item is for me to continue on a "long" trip.My kids prefer wendy's but the happy meal toys at mcdonalds are better. Minisnick always orders the southwest salad from wendys
Now they get cold so quickly, and taste super weird, they're not even worth it.McDonald's got so popular on the strength of their fries. Pretty much every other fast food chain has better burgers. But some hot, salty, fresh McDonald's fries.... It's hard to compete with that.
