Soccer Shots

 Gareth, trying to kick a ball around.

It may look like he just kicked the ball, but I'm pretty sure that's not the case. This is how he typically spends a good portion of the game - playing in his imaginary video game world, semi-oblivious to what's happening around him:

He's actually come really close to scoring a couple of goals this year, but it seems we've spent enough time getting him to keep the ball close/dribble rather than just kick it as hard as he can so now he's not willing to give a hard kick, even when the goal is wide open just a foot away. Trying to dribble the ball all the way into the goal usually means the other team catches up to him and gets the ball away just before he gets it into the goal.
