The Game Plan

How original a Quarterback named Joe. “Im sure Mr. Monanta, Nameth and Thiesman would all be impressed by this ingenious creation. The movie is about a hotshot self indulged self absorbed football player who cares more about himself than he does his own team. i wonder where they got that idea. He must however come to grips with reality when his 8 yr. old daughter knocks on his front door. The plot is supposed to be ingenious and creative. it is however not. She is a ballerina and he is a football player. you are supposed to believe hat no one has ever combined the two before. What was his name that Pittsburgh Steelers player that just recently ran for governor of Pennsylvania oh yea Lynn Swann. wasn't he famous for doing both? There are a few plot twist in this movie you will not expect. The ending however is contrite and bland. He chooses love over money. Like Disney has never done that before. it is however a cute movie. you find yourself inexplecitly cheering for the good guys and rooting for victory in the end. This movie may be worth the Dollar a day a paid for it but it is not worth much more. The movie is nothing more than a dime a dozen football movie who time has come and gone. Don’t waste your money on this and don’t race out to get it at the video store. It will perfectly well amuse you on TV for free in a few weeks. Grade C+

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
