Here's Jellyfish!

Speaking of jellyfish, I'm on vacation right now on an island, so I might run into a real one sometime soon.

Yes, faithful readers, that's why I have no pics of the national team camp up right now. I'm not in L.A.

This template: ewwwwww...

I must admit that although I found the original Sideline Views (green) template to be hideous, I'm even more unnerved by the recent experiments. They're pretty much all terrible.

Can't someone with some decent knowledge of HTML or CSS design a more attractive interface? Since I love this blog, I'd volunteer to do it, but alas, my coding facility is pathetic.

Coach said...

Wow briguy, could you be more negative. Tell us how ya really feel! lol ;)

Bri(e) is a very good cheese though!

briguy said...

@coach: Yes, well, I don't mean to be so negative; after all, it's the content that we all come here for, and the content is superb.

I recently had to build a wiki, and I also opted for a template. It's impossible to please everyone, but I tried for something clean and easy on the eyes, and that would look good across a variety of access points (20" widescreen monitors, 2" iPhone screens, etc.).

It should be noted that my criticism has much more to do with the geniuses that designed the blogger templates than with A.C. and L.B.!

In a word: yuk! The only thing missing from this template is the Crayolas! I'm with Briguy on this - I wasn't a fan of the old template, but jellyfish is REALLY bad.

Coach said...

Minima with colour, go vote NOW! lol

Canada vs. Sweden for Gold in 30 minutes, are you watching Pia?

Joseph D'Hippolito said...

jellyfish is awful.

Jonathan Geissler said...

You should try Minima Blue.

Jaime Cárdenas said...

Jellyfish stings...get it?

Michael Beasley said...

I saw something cool that was similar on Monster Quest on the Discovery Channel with a giant squid in Mexico.

That should read "minima", but do it with color.

Coach said...

dp, thanks for the video link, enjoy watching drills & always on the lookout for new ideas.

Coach said...

Whatever has become of 565?

So it wasn't just Hope being naughty in China afterall!

dpfirestarter16 said...

^ LOL at above

and congrats to Lily and her husband.

Coach said...

You're welcome, another one some may have missed, a chat with Hope:

Yes, congrats to Kristine & her hubby, even if in her December blog, she said she had NO news! lol

Coach said...

Meant to add, Ryan is on Fox Football fone-in or something like that tonight, should be interesting, maybe? :(

Coach said...

fyi, correction, fox fone in with Greg Ryan is tomorrow night, Jan 8th.

Joseph D'Hippolito said...

A.C.,enjoy your vacation. You deserve one. You are among the hardest-working (if not *the* hardest-working) soccer writers in the country (certainly in L.A.). Keep up the good work.

Grumpy in LA said...

This is Jellyfish? This template is godawful. It looks like a third-grade posterboard presentation. All the others have been better.

Coach said...

You would think Fox could get their web site right with the time but apparently not! The phone-in was tonight & Ryan continues to look like a bit, no, more then a bit, of an idiot!

dpfirestarter16 said...

^what did he say?

Coach said...

To summarize in as few words as possible, the inconsistency of his previous interview regarding the Keeper switch & long ball remains but now he is coming right out and saying Hope broke team rules instead of implying that she broke team rules?

Also, he is going to write that book that we have joked about!

Make room Roger Clemens!

dpfirestarter16 said...

he needs to just shut up and move on...the WNT have moved on.

he might be a little bit jealous that the players like pia better and have more praise. lol

Anonymous said...

They said all the same things about Ryan that they are saying about Pia now when he took over.
