Professional Soccer Highlights-Scores-Results

download298059ca723b94f8e1ac564b611a48bcHey reader today I will be talking about Professional Soccer.  In this I will tell you scores, highlights, and results of Professional Soccer. Some of the teams I will tell you about are The Columbus Crew and LA Galaxy. Those teams are in a league called MLS. I will also talk about teams that are not in that league. The league these teams are in is called Barclays Premier League. For example Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Manchester United.  You will hear me talk about more of the teams not in MLS because the teams that are not in that league are from out of the country and are more skilled at soccer.

First off I will tell you some of the teams that are in the Barclays Premier League. Real Madrid: finished 6-0-4, Barcelona: finished 10-2-1, Mancester United: finished 4-3-1. Now I will tell you about some of the main highlights of this season. Real Madrid: Cristiano Ronaldo does bicycle kick in to the goal against Levante.ronaldo9

Next is Barcelona. Neymar Jr. rainbows over opponent to get a goal. This goal was against Real Madrid.

Finally I will show you a highlight from Machester United. Pogba goes for a goal against Stoke city and bends the ball from behind the 18 yard line in to the goal.

Now I will talk about the teams in the MSL. For example The Columbus Crew, and LA Galaxy. First off is there records… The Columbus Crews finished 6-0-5 and they didn’t have as good as a season as last year. Now is LA Galaxy. They also didn’t do so good this year but their record was 2-7-3. One more teams record I want to talk about that I didn’t monition is The New York Red Bulls. This team had surprisingly no losses! Their record was 6-7-0.

Finally I will show you some highlights of these teams season just like I did with the teams that were not in the MSL league.

The Columbus Crew is first.

Tony Tchani shot a very impressive goal from above the 18 yard line and knocked it in. This goal was almost a bicycle kick.

From the LA Galaxy Landon Donovan takes a corner against Real Salt Lake and bends it in… Truthfully I think this is one of the best highlights of this season I have seen yet…

Overall all these teams I have talked about and more have been successful this season. Now we will have to wait until the Fifa World Cup to see who will win it all and bring home the big trophy…

All About Landon

dirt-bikeToday I will tell you more about me. First off my name is Landon. I would like to tell you about things I like to do in my free time.  There are lots of things I like to do in my free time like riding dirt bike, playing sports, hanging around with my family and lots more. Riding dirt bikes is probably my favorite thing to do because it gets me outside and away from school and everything else, it’s kinda like my happy place. I love to play sports also. My favorite sport is basketball and it kinda relieves me from school and stress just like riding dirt bikes.

Next thing I’m going to talk about is me as a student. I am a very hard worker and my favorite subject is math. Reading is not my favorite but I can stand it. I think I get my math skills from my dad my dad has always worked with math. He is now working as a project engineer for MS consultancy.  This year I’m in both advanced classes and I like both.

Now I’m going to talk about me as a person.  In my life I think I have always been successful in everything I do whether it’s sports, and school or anything. Me being successful kinda goes along with me always working hard too. I always try to work my hardest on anything and everything I do. There is one saying that I really like and it is : “If you’re doing nothing someone is getting better.” I always want to be the best I can be cause I’m very competitive in things I do.

Finally I’m going to talk about my goals for this year. I have always gotten good grades because I’m always responsible for all my work and I get it done on time plus work hard on it. So this year I’m going to do just that and try to get straight A’s and make sure I can do that because of sports.

 

Ohio’s Land Formations!

Millions of years ago, Ohio got run over by a glacier.  The glacier acted like a giant, slow moving bulldozer.  The glacier flattened out close to two thirds of Ohio.  Because Ohio is so flat, many people have decided to become farmers.  Flat farmland is one of Ohio’s natural land formations.

Where the glaciers stopped, there were hills everywhere.  This area is now called The Hocking Hills.  My classmate B.J. wrote a post about the Hocking Hills.  The Hocking Hills has waterfalls, caves and lakes.  The Hocking Hills is one of Ohio’s many natural land formations.

Terrific Trilobites

Most people don’t know that Ohio has a State Fossil. Ohio’s state fossil is the Trilobite. A trilobite is a fish that lived 526 million years ago. The trilobite is about 70 cm long or about two feet long! They were actually one of the first lifeforms to have complex eyes! Collecting trilobites has even been happening for a long time, trilobites have been found in human burial grounds from 50,000 years ago! Even though the Trilobite is the state fossil, finding a trilobite can be quite difficult in Ohio.ohio

If you’ve been wondering this whole time, what is a fossil? Well a fossil is, “the remains or impression of a prehistoric organism preserved in petrified form or as a mold or cast in rock.” So who studies fossils and what is the study of fossils? Paleontology is the study of fossils and a Paleontologist study fossils. There are millions of fossils just waiting to be discovered by paleontologists. Without fossils we wouldn’t know anything about the history of the Earth or the plants and animals that roamed on the Earth millions of years ago.

Did you know that Ohio use to be in a more tropical/warmer climate zone millions of years ago? Trilobites and other fossils helped discover that. Fossils around the Ohio region, like the Trilobite were fossilized in a ocean like rock that helped show that Ohio (or where the fossil was found) was in a tropical and sea area. Many other fossils that were found around the Ohio region like corals, crinoids, algae also proved that Ohio use to be covered with water.trilobite1

Like the trilobite, fossils are the reason we know so much about the Earth millions of years ago. That’s why fossils are such an crucial part of the Earth. I encourage you to try and research some of the fossils in the region you live in! Maybe even go hunting for fossils! Comment below if you have any questions or facts to tell me!

Will You Fall For Our Leaves?

Autumn is a big deal in Ohio.  I personally live on top of a hill, surrounded by trees.  Most of the time in the fall, when my family is driving, we get behind really slow people.  This is because of the leaves.  Tourists will travel  across states,  just to see the leaves. I know it sounds crazy, but they truly are beautiful. Every year in Ohio, there is a time period called Autumn, or fall, that usually lasts 2 -3 months. If you don’t have Autumn where you live, you can go online to read more. Next time you’re on a vacation, ask your parents if you can go to Ohio. You just might fall for our leaves.
