After a couple weeks on the back burner, the self-indulgent posts are back with the three questions of the week:
What am I reading? I just finished reading Takedown by Brad Thor, which is a Scot Harvath novel about a terrorist attack on New York City. These Harvath novels don’t always end with cliffhangers, but this one did. Usually I order books three at a time and would have the next one ready, but I don’t have the next one yet, dangit. So I grabbed Beast by Doug Merlino off the shelf, which had been sitting there for a year or so. Merlino embedded himself with a few aspiring (or has-been) fighters and wrote a book about it. I love watching MMA fights, even though a lot of people think it’s barbaric. And the book I have in my car is The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom.
What am I googling? I’ve been looking up clinic videos of inside zone and power RPOs. Next year we should have a quarterback who can do some of this RPO stuff, so I’m looking at some stuff to give him options. He’s a good athlete without a cannon arm, so we need to find ways for him to spread the ball out laterally and within 15-20 yards of the line of scrimmage.
What am I looking forward to? The spring and summer include some 7-on-7s, so I’m looking forward to getting in some 7-on-7 action when the weather allows. It’s a little early still, but we’re putting together our rosters.
