Escobar for Supreme Court -
Never had one… and even if I did. Let me just say, if I ended up with Kate…. nothing else in the world would matter. I wouldn’t even be able to tell you if the Braves ever won a ball game again. Kate. Mmmmmmmm.
August 22nd, 200912:09 am
…she gives me heart palpitations.
Brandon from Warner Robins
We been through every kind of rain there is. Little bitty stingin’ rain… and big ol’ fat rain. Rain that flew in sideways. And sometimes rain even seemed to come straight up from underneath
You know, when I read the “dead Mexican dude on Chipper’s ranch” story, the first thought that entered my twisted mind was this:
“Oh, so that’s where Jorge Campillo went.”
Escobar for Supreme Court
Soph- Yea they are but the east is to good and they havent added any of the pieces they really need unfortunitly.
The Truth- Thats awesome lol
a643dp- Thats awesome was that on a show or just a youtube add?
August 22nd, 200912:10 am
jman i don’t think they’ll suspend a game that isn’t tied, if anything they’d call it. But they want to make every effort to get it in, given the importance of it to the pennant races. coming up on two hours now, and boy, am i pleased!
August 22nd, 200912:11 am
chop chop lol u crazy mother. Chip is trying to defend Greg Norton on the radio right now. uh……………
They added Jamal Crawford but I agree that they probably need a few more pieces to make that jump. Still more exciting to watch though.
Heath- I dont thinkt hey would ever be better then her but I’m not a big fan of them.
Chop Chop- Thats just as good as the convo. Chip has a future in border patrol
August 22nd, 200912:12 am
August 22nd, 200912:13 am
Carroll – what do you and DOB usually do during long rain delays like this one?
Carroll Rogers– check out the dirt I uncovered on Chipper and LaRoche…. you’ll get a kick out of that conversation, they didn’t know I was listening. That should make the time go by quicker for you and I’ll try to dig up more.
Soph dont forget Joe Smith. Another additon to the frontcourt.
August 22nd, 200912:14 am
Soph- Yea it is, I’m not a huge basketball fan but I wanna go see a couple games this year.
Tiger Woods- How can anyone defend him?
What’s not to like? -
Carroll – you do not think that they would let the teams finish the game tomorrow just prior to tomorrow’s game? This game is too important and it needs to be completed at all possible. It would be one thing if this was Sunday but we still have 2 games against the fish.
August 22nd, 200912:15 am
Im with Heath. Whats not to like about KB?
Escobar- I think it was from Mad TV
Yup Brandon, that was a good addition too. I’m pretty excited about the Hawks this season. And, the Falcons too of course.
August 22nd, 200912:16 am
Hi guys i have been away from the TV and my computer tonight.Anywrd as to when the game will start agian?
Brandon from Warner Robins
August 22nd, 2009
Im with Heath. Whats not to like about KB?
I’d give up the Braves!!!
August 22nd, 200912:17 am
My take on the first time seeing the DBT’s….
A little too country-fied for my taste. Whole lotta storytelling songs it seems…..lotta words. zzzzzz….
Average players individually, better collectively. Couple of nice chord changes and “tricks.”
But yeah…..too country for me.
August 22nd, 200912:18 am
Any announcement on when/if we will get this one in?
This is probably one of my favs….. I really like black and white photos.
john 2 hour delay, they want to get the game in, at least 45 minutes before we could start. if they do start the braves will come back and win. so we will see.
It’s amazing the people who call the post-game radio show with Chip and Lemke.
They somehow draw the most idiotic, clueless, ill-informed, dumbass, redneck morons. It’s literally two or three variations on the same retard, over and over.
Some guy wants to know why Norton can’t be replaced with Jordan Schafer. Uh, because Jordon Schafer plays center field and is not a pinch hitter. And he’s injured.
They get every detail wrong. Somebody mentioned how well they remember the catch Otis Nixon made against the Reds. No, it was the Pirates. Remember, they used to be good, they were sort of our rivals. Andy Van Slyke? Didn’t play for the Reds.
“There’s a movie called ‘the Natural’, I’m sure you’ve heard of it… “
Brian, I think anyone with a child under the age of 5 who is still stupid enough to be waiting out a rain delay between 2 teams 6 games out of 1st place should be reported to a child protective agency. I’m actually proud of Braves fans who have a life and have decided enough is enough, contrary to what MLB might think.
August 22nd, 200912:19 am
Hopefully the boys can come back after the delay and win, as the Phillies lost and the Rockies are losing…
I wonder if Mark Lemke knows that Freddie Freeman isn’t doing jack down in Double-A right now. I doubt it.
what is going on with KJ?? Righty starter should have been right up Cox’s alley to start the lefty KJ.
August 22nd, 200912:20 am
Brian, No!!! They won’t do that even for the Atlanta Braves. Something about precedent I would imagine.
Oh my, Bobby and Chino are playing hop scotch. HA, now Norton is getting involved. Chipper is still talking it up with Adam and Yunel is giving Bobby the stink eye as he hops up and down. Crazy place.
August 22nd, 200912:21 am
It’s “Jason” Schafer! Good job, Lemmer. Stick to being a scrappy middle infielder.
Apparantly Omar Infante turned into an every day player.
jeff – who cares if fans are out there in the rain waiting this one out. Children there or not I would have been long gone. The players though deserve to finish this game. They may be 6 out in the East but only 4 games out in the Wild Card
August 22nd, 200912:22 am
what is Infante’s average since his return? Cannot be too high
Chip says no longer than 45 minutes from what it looks like to him.
That’s a good look!
August 22nd, 200912:24 am
Before I end up sounding like an idiot, can you at least make your name easier to read or understand?
How about “A 6-4-3 DP”?
Don’t make me ask you what it means and then figure it out right after I post my comment.
Good thing that didn’t happen.
never thought i’d say this but ….they’re taking the tarp off
Carroll – so what do you guys do during delays? Play cards? Joke about how terrible Greg Norton is? Play pranks on Joe Simpson?
August 22nd, 200912:25 am
That second pic…. how would you like to open you eyes in the morning, and THAT is the first thing you see? THAT would be heaven.
Their coming back!
They are taking the tarp out
Interesting note: Tonight was the longest stretch (6 1/3 inn) the braves went with out a hit in a game since June second against the Cubs (6 2/3). Entering the bottom of the ninth the score was 5-3 when #7 hit a homer to send the game into extras. Braves went on to win in 12.
This game has been eerily similar. Hopefully the result will be the same tonight!
August 22nd, 200912:26 am
August 22nd, 2009
We may never know…. but you all now know what I do!!!
jeffrey d, work on stuff i need to finish, usually. boring. …they’re saying the game will resume at 12:50, Hopefully
24 minutes people. we better frickin win!
tarp is off the field look like game should restart at arond 12:40
August 22nd, 200912:27 am
DO NOT CLICK IF YOU GET OFFENDED BY ADULT LANGUAGE OR UNDER 18
Best Yankees rip from a stand up comedian
jeffrey d -
And I mean that in the most PG sense that I can… I’m not suggesting anything R-rated.
How many Out were they in Top 9 and is there anyone on baseball before the rain start
August 22nd, 200912:28 am
I hope the Marlins hit a two-run HR on the first pitch.
Brian, I didn’t say the PLAYERS should not be allowed to finish the game. I basically said ANYONE stupid enough to be there who is NOT being paid to be there is a MORON!!
Would you agree? I know you have more of a life than to sit in a baseball stadium at 12:26 waiting for an umpiring crew to make a decision.I am right, aren’t i??
I would assume the long wait favors pitching and defense. It seems like it would be hard to get the concentration back to hit well after this type of delay
yes you are Jeff – as I said, children or not I would be long gone from that stadium now
August 22nd, 200912:29 am
As a single, virile, middle-aged gentleman….. I could certainly stand that!
Love that “look!”
There was only 1 out.
Mitchell, has boredom struck? Analyzing people’s screennames…?
#@$# the yankees. Everyone and i mean everyone get your rally hats on!!
Anything that rips the Yankees Im all for!! Good Clip!!
August 22nd, 200912:30 am
i would eat if there were anything left in the press cafeteria. but no dice.
As a single, virile, middle-aged gentleman…..
I don’t even think it takes those qualifications…
1 out person on first.
August 22nd, 200912:31 am
That is a great clip
and it’s pouring again….
and the giants-rockies game is over.
Game Over! For Real This Time!
Giants hold on… Come on Braves….pull this out guys!
Will In Washington
August 22nd, 200912:32 am
My faith in humanity will be shattered if there are more than 2,000 people there when this resumes. WHO in the HEll sits through a 2 1/2 hour rain delay?? Playoffs?? Yes!! World Series/Definitely!! 122nd game of the season–A##HOLE!!
Heath – haha, understood
Just finish the game.
I dunno, it just started raining here in Gwinnett again too. I don’t think we’re gonna get the rest of this game in.
the videoboard says we’ll resume at 12:40. PR people said 12:50, so who knows.
August 22nd, 200912:33 am
August 22nd, 2009
I think I know why….either way, you’re welcome.
So i was wondering during a long Rain Delay like tonight at the press Box do you guys have tv so you can watch anther game if you like too.Or you just stay in the Press Box and do nothing but eating
how far is Gwinnett from the TED?
August 22nd, 200912:34 am
Its raining there again?!?!
August 22nd, 200912:35 am
Joe said it start raining heard agian
Gwinnett is like 30 miles from the Ted.
Well, the part of Gwinnett I’m in is closer to Dekalb County and it’s about 45 minutes from Turner Field.
College football is back in two weeks! predictions anyone?
August 22nd, 200912:36 am
For all those with the suspended game talk, I did a little research and thought I’d pass this along.
A game can be suspend for several reasons (curfew, lighting issues, etc.) but not typically due to weather. In order for a game to be suspeded due to weather, it must be an official game (41/2 innings with the home team ahead, or 5 innings with the visiting club ahead or tied) and then one of the following two conditions must be met:
1. The score must be tied
2. Or if the game is called in the middle of an inning, the visiting team has scored one or more runs in that inning to take the lead, and the home team has not retaken the lead.
Also of note, a game cannont be suspended if weather delayed it and then there were lighting issues, etc. later or vice versa. It must be a singluar cause. All of these things add up to one thing… suspensions are extremely rare.
This information was borrowed from here:
Specifically section 4.12
Gwinnett is about 10-20 minutes from the Ted at this time of night…At 5pm make it an Hour
August 22nd, 200912:37 am
And for those that couldn’t figure it out… under these rules, at least as I read and understand them, tonight’s game is not eligible for suspension.
Potential scapegoats –
1) Peachtree TV for starting the game at 7:30
2) Bobby Cox for
a) Somehow being responsible for the no hitter for half the game
b) Somehow being responsible for the homers off Vazquez
c) Pinch hitting Greg Norton
3) Greg Norton. I’m sure right after he got out sat down on the bench and said “Suckers….”
4) Jeff Francoeur….haven’t gotten to blame him in awhile
5) KJ – I dunno. Just seems like a lot of people have gotten off his bandwagon lately.
What’d I leave off?
August 22nd, 200912:38 am
I forgot it depends on what part of Gwinnett you live in…too many factors…
NO MORE BOBBY
Is Rick Camp ready to pinch hit?
Gwinnett isn’t that far from Turner Field, but don’t fault Brooks Conrad for thinking that it’s a million miles away.
Are the gates open right now? If I’m homeless, I’m getting my butt down there and use a nice clean rest room, wash up in the sink, maybe have some food distributed by charitable vendors. Hell, they might be able to hang around until 4:30 in the morning before it gets officially called.
August 22nd, 200912:39 am
You never see any female grounds crew members
Rain….So, is it re-starting or no?
Boone Logan is on the mound now, stretching and some guys are coming onto the field to play catch.
Oh, I forgot. On this blog we blame Bobby for everything that goes wrong.
Tomahawkin- I myself on the outskirts of gwinnett its about 25 minutes now yea and around an hour at five lol good call tomahawkin
jeffrey D, yes you do. i saw one get run over by a tarp in Cincinnati earlier this season
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
