  • Diagram used by offensive coaches as a guide for how to run routes accurately. Visually, the various routes—the curl, the out, the post—resemble, as they branch out to both sides of the field, limbs coming off a trunk.
  • A form of team game played in North America with an oval ball on a field marked out as a gridiron
  • The game of football is any of several similar team sports, of similar origins which involve, to varying degrees, kicking a ball with the foot in an attempt to score a goal. The most popular of these sports worldwide is association football, more commonly known as just "football" or "soccer".
  • Play in such a game, esp. when stylish and entertaining
  • any of various games played with a ball (round or oval) in which two teams try to kick or carry or propel the ball into each other's goal
  • A ball used in football, either oval (as in American football) or round (as in soccer), typically made of leather or plastic and filled with compressed air
  • the inflated oblong ball used in playing American football

Madden NFL 2000
Keep football season going all year long. Madden NFL 2000 delivers an arcade mode with blurring moves, helmet-popping hits, more scoring, and special animations. Learn to play with pop-up menus that guide you through the game in the Madden tutorial mode. For traditional football play, Madden NFL 2000 delivers unrivaled, tournament-tested gameplay with in-depth features including a multiplayer franchise mode. Compete in the Madden challenge and face different task levels to unlock secret codes.

The Madden series is the grandfather of NFL-licensed video games, and Madden NFL 2000 marks the 10th anniversary of this gaming franchise. Keep in mind, this is not your father's Sega Genesis game, so casual gamers will be happier playing NFL Blitz 2000. However, for the football simulation nut, this game delivers even more than did Madden 99.
New additions to the fine Madden 99 game include faster yet less-detailed graphics, smoother animation, and additional onscreen treats such as goalpost nets, yard markers, and sidelines filled with coaches and teammates. One of the greatest new features is the hot route option, enabling players to change individual receiver routes at the line of scrimmage--it's like an audible, but doesn't require changing the entire play. More goals beyond just winning are here in the form of the Madden Challenge, giving players access to hidden stadiums and other goodies for successfully completing a series of increasingly difficult tasks, such as 30-plus yard receptions or a having a running back rush for over 100 yards in a game.
The artificial intelligence (AI) is still as slick as ever, but this game is best when played in two-player mode. Play-by-play commentary has been expanded for this game, but remains a bit sparse. A word of warning: the arcade mode is still pretty heavy on simulations, so only veterans or players who enjoy a steep learning curve need apply. --Jeff Young
The hot routes option adds more depth of control
Faster graphics keep the game moving along
Improved running game makes for more balance between passing and running
New player graphics are not very smooth
Controls and play selection are tough to learn for novice gamers

The Rhubarb & Custard Tree
The Rhubarb & Custard Tree
Autumn days such as these are a feast for the senses: the percussive rustle and crunch of the underfoot leaves, the rainbow hues of those still on the trees and the damp odour of rotting wood as the cycle of life once again returns to hibernation. And you are dead wrong in thinking that this sculpture is named after a successful chain of gastro-pubs. Indeed if anyone wants to name their new restaurant after my sculpture then I will want royalties paying. I have two modes for making land art. If I am in a wild, natural place then I will only gather materials there and then from nearby. But if I go to the park, cemetery, university campus or somewhere in the suburbs then I will gather from any or all of these places and construct something from the much wider range of trees and plants present in those locations. More a reflection, if you will, of Victorian plant hunting and our love of gardening. But I don't do that in wild places for several reasons. I don't want to bring in plants alien to that environment and especially not seeds but mainly I want to experience the plants and trees of that place and learn more about it by making sculptures out of what is there. There is more scope for diversity on the outskirts of the urban connurbation but I still think it is true to the essence of my land art to collect more widely as it still reflects the plants and trees that most of us live with everyday, many of them not native but have been grown here for a hundred years or more. And so that is how I begun my day. It took a long time to get into the groove today and I went collecting and wandering in several different places. There is a cherry tree a few doors down that has gone stright from green to deep burgundy-red and set against the sunshine and blue sky it looks spectacular. There are several I have now seen along with sumach that are displaying amazing autumn colours but alas they are all in someones garden. On my travels I noticed a row of the same cherries outside the front of the hospital so I went there first and filled up a bag. I didn't look up much from my gathering but I am sure I was getting some funny looks. Then I went to the park to the other cherries I know and these were all green save for a few yellow and orange leaves. Lastly I visited the cherries in the cemetery and found that nearly all their leaves had dropped. It seems that the cherry trees around here are at many different stages, why I do not know. By the way, if this story ends without a conclusion then it will be clear that dying cherry leaves do indeed contain cyanide! I took what I had gathered and strolled over to the university campus to look for a quiet spot in which to spend a few hours. Large as the campus may be this was not an easy task. With students comes a whole array of life, even during the day! Four hobbits, an orc, two goblins and a barbarian walked past me - must be the LARP society. Live Action Role Play seems to involve dressing up as your favourite Lord of the Rings characters and then beating each other over the head with plastic swords shouting "I will smite thee!" Probably fun to do but really very funny to watch and you think I'm weird! Another group played cricket, yet another football and then someone in a very bright yellow jacket galloped past on a very large horse. I was having trouble concentrating. I disappeared into the undergrowth looking for inspiration and found only empty beer cans, discarded crisp packets and used disposable barbecues that had indeed been used but not disposed of. I never quite get the habit of going to a nice quiet and often beautiful spot, getting ****-faced and then leaving all your rubbish behind. They obviously have the wherewithall to recognise a beautiful place but then they lose it by making it an eyesore when they've finished. Now all of this, added to the pooey smell emanating from a hidden drain somewhere was not leaving me very inspired. For a moment I wished that I had gone somewhere else but I persevered. The most striking of the cherry leaves I had collected were the deep red and the rich yellow. The two colours next to each other set off particularly well so I tore them in half and stitched them together to show the best of autumn cherry. But what to do with them? The idea to pin them to a branch popped into my head and so I began to make several rhubarb and custard leaves. Once I had made several I set about attaching them to the branch I had found and yet the thorns would not pierce the wood. Hmm, mother nature plays her hand again in constructing each sculpture and so another thought popped into my head. Earlier in the week a friend had remarked on the technological themes in my art: boxes, squares, wheels and my graphical style and so I thought I would construct my own angular branch from soft wood and attach the leaves to that. And so with the sculpture finished I was still only half done. The sun came out for only a few short minutes

Was out one night with my mates and decided to give long exposure a go. Great fun, this one's not perfect but its come out pretty nicely.

Passing for Normal: A Memoir of Compulsion
I am crazy. But maybe I am not. For most of her life, these thoughts plagued Amy Wilensky as her mind lurched and veered in ways she didn't understand and her body did things she couldn't control. While she excelled in school and led an otherwise "normal" life, she worried that beneath the surface she was a freak, that there was something irrevocably wrong with her. Passing for Normal is Wilensky's emotionally charged account of her lifelong struggle with the often misunderstood disorders Tourette's syndrome and obsessive-compulsive disorder. A powerful witness to her own dysfunction, Wilensky describes the strain it bore on her relationships with the people she thought she knew best: her family, her friends, and herself. Confronting the labels we apply to ourselves and others--compulsive, crazy, out of control--Amy describes her symptoms, diagnosis, and her treatment with courage and a healthy dose of humor, gradually coming to terms with the absurdities of a life beset by irrational behavior. This compelling narrative, by turns
tragic and comic, broadly extends our understanding of the won-drously complex human mind, and, with subtlety and grace, challenges our notion of what it is to be "normal."
