Soph–I like the music on Rangeela. I like Aamir Khan’s performance. Even Jackie Shroff is fine. But Urmila is so annoying. I like her in some roles, but Rangeela is not one of them, at all.
February 28th, 201112:57 am
True Grit is my favorite western of all time, but with The Dude in the remake and the Coen Bros doing it, I’m excited for it.
The Fighter has Mark Wahlberg in it and I am a big fan of his, although I am not clear on the plot. Can someone fill me in on that?
The King’s Speech, well, I always end up watching the Best Picture every year, but with finding out it has ties to Pensacola, it intrigues me even more.
February 28th, 201112:58 am
Thanks–and that’s a good choice IMO. Due to general busyness I didn’t see any of the telecast and–from what I can tell of the major awards–there really wasn’t a dark horse that came out of nowhere to win. I share your opinion of ‘The Fighter’ and, though I didn’t expect it to win Best, it is a film I’ll see again.
February 28th, 201112:59 am
I still liked the old version of True Grit better, nostalgai and Wayne luv I guess.
Not to say the new one wasn’t good, though a bit minimalistic and some of the dialogue is stilted though it is in the book too IIRC.
haggard, nolie and Soph–Think I could stay up chatting all night. Combined with FB updates from friends in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and India. I could stay up talking. But I must sleep. I have an early morning. Wish you all well.
No, really…, I think using the phrase “cynical fans was his biggest mistake, and he likely would phrase it differently if given the opportunity to do so.
Because we all know that the headline COULD read:
“Chipper tells fans to kiss his ass”
… it they wanted to print it that way. The media is notorious for leaving out what they want and making it look like another thing.
If he simply would have stated: “To all those that think I’m in this for the paycheck, they can kiss my ass”.
He would have been specifically “attacking” who he was lashing out at. But instead if taken out of context could appear to be taken that he feels he’s above criticism from the fans.
Now, I know that’s not what he meant. But all it takes is one or two media guys that maybe don’t like him to run with it.
Then again, if you go to ESPN, si.com, foxsports.com and other various sites, there is zero mention of it. So might all just be in my head, huh?
In the end, I’m just saying right or wrong, I don’t think it was very smart of him to say it. No matter how it all ends up.
February 28th, 20111:01 am
I’ve checked in and out the past couple of days and don’t believe I’ve seen much of Tom O’Hawke since he fell asleep with the headphones on. No, check that; I don’t believe he’s come out of the greenhouse yet. Have I simply missed him?
N8 got a burr under his saddle again tonight
February 28th, 20111:02 am
nolie, I don’t know if there is a burr under my saddle, but it sure as hell is cold up this way.
February 28th, 20111:03 am
I don’t remember seeing him either at least at night. I have missed some of the day time posting the last coupla days. He may still be mesmerized by The New Mastersounds sounds.
Okay; we’ll let you go. I’m due for an early morning as well and–with the way I’m going–my eyes will rival Mr. Mitchum’s with their sleepy look.
February 28th, 20111:04 am
No, really… True Grit too. I have a big collection of movies. You could say I have Planet Hollywood at my house……
aha so all the typing keeps you warm, now we know the “rest of the story”
February 28th, 20111:05 am
Tom O’ Hawke will come on later…..
February 28th, 20111:07 am
What is The Fighter about exactly?
February 28th, 20111:08 am
Needed something else to go off on tonight. Chipper and Schultz provided it.
I suppose I could go back to talking about McLouth, Schafer, Beachy, Minor, Kimbrel and Venters? OK. Fine. Here goes….
I think McLouth is the CF to start the year. With Schafer as the 4th OF or at AAA, and will be called up soon after to be the 4th OF or take Nate’s job.
I think Kimbrel will be the closer and he will be fine. By “fine”, I think he’ll blow a handful of saves (like every closer – especially young ones – tend to do), and will absolutely dominate in most of the other ones. Then in year 2 or 3 as the closer, he will put together a season that reminds us of how dominating Smoltz was in that role.
If he completely falls apart this year, Fredi will go to a committee conisting of Linebrink, Venters, Moylan and Kimbrel. It will fail a few times, but work on most nights. Until the post-season if we get there.
I think Minor has about as much shot at “losing” the 5th starters spot as much as Freeman might not be the opening day 1B. No matter what they say publicly in the spirit of competition, it IS Minor’s job to lose (LH, 1st round draft pick, got experience last year).
If HE fails to look good early in the year, Beachy is a nice fall back option.
February 28th, 20111:09 am
I’ve seen–and actually own–the Sam Elliott movie ‘The Quick And The Dead’, yet have never viewed the Gene Hackman-Sharon Stone movie of the same name. My uninformed gut feeling is they are not different treatments of the same story and, if so, how / why do they share the same title?
February 28th, 20111:16 am
Never mind on The Fighter.
Just looked it up. It’s based on true story/biopic I suppose. Sounds great even.
February 28th, 20111:17 am
I am heading to bed.
February 28th, 20111:20 am
haggard, the Gene Hackman, and Sharon Stone Quick, and the Dead is deadly Draw contest, and who ever is left standing advances to the next round…..Great film…. If you like Draws….
February 28th, 20111:22 am
the Hackman one is about gunfighting so I see the relevance of the title, the other one wasmade first and based on a L’Amour book of that name i think.
amazing thing is the cast in the Hackman version. Stone, DiCaprio,Russell Crowe, Gary Sinese, Lance Henriksen,Pat Hingle,Keith David etc.
a tongue in cheek western I suppose in a way.
February 28th, 20111:25 am
Crowe and DiCaprio together at that age. someone had a good casting eye for newcomers
February 28th, 20111:28 am
That is a great lineup in the Hackman version and I don’t know why I’ve overlooked it. That’ll change soon.
“When it’s sleepy time down south”
Good night good blog
February 28th, 20111:31 am
Before I go….I first saw Crowe in ‘LA Confidential’ and, was so impressed, I wondered if he might not be our new Brando. The comparison hasn’t “fleshed out”, but Crowe’s had an interesting career.
And DiCaprio gets better and beter.
Talk later- nolie, haggard, and every one peace…
February 28th, 20111:37 am
Crowe is a good actor who can disappear into the role he is playing. He has made a few questionable choices in movies but has been outstanding in a number of good ones. LA Confidential,The Insider,Gladiator, A Beautiful Mind, Master and Commander(my fave i think) and maybe State of Play show his ability and diversity.
February 28th, 20111:39 am
The best thing about the Hackman /Stone Western is the cast.
It does not rank with any of the other movies I have mentioned to you over the last months.
February 28th, 20111:45 am
Atlanta…Imagine if we could buy alcohol on Sunday
February 28th, 20112:05 am
Moe and Haggard: Jane Greer was sensational in Out of the Past, one of the great female noir performances.
February 28th, 20112:51 am
they used Jane in the remake Against All Odds
February 28th, 20112:53 am
The original The Killers was great noir, as was Sterling Hayden’s The Asphalt Jungle and The Killing.
Bay Area Steve
February 28th, 20114:02 am
I saw that earlier. Or, I saw that now. Or, I saw what you wrote then, now. Or, whatever… In any case, I don’t like it. To lose to Ward…
I just can’t decide about the guy. You have to, at this point, assume reality, ’cause who in their right mind puts on that show for months on end? But, one minute dude’s indecipherable, the next he’s spelling words and using phrases that scoots (probably not, but we gotta kid the guy when he’s not around) struggles with. I’m still not certain…
As far as sticking up for him: Piffle. Balderdash. Malarkey. I wish Murph’d finish the guy off. Whatever happened to honor? How do you promise a guy’s demise, and not follow through? I feel cheated. I almost wish Murph would beat the guy about the head and neck with a deer antler. But, I think that’s a morally questionable position. Not sure though…
February 28th, 20114:11 am
Mountain/molehill much? You really think Chipper’s comments become a distraction? ‘Cause Atlanta’s sports scene is big like that… Brian McCann’s won awards every year in the league and McFann still has to call ESPN nightly to get them to spell his name right. You really think every city they go to, each player’s gonna get questioned? ‘Cause that’s a distraction.
But, that ain’t happening. And, as far as what it is now, and what it will remain: the guys in the clubhouse are laughing their asses off. Chipper gave us a giant “F you, and the horses you rode in on.” And, he’s exactly right. All he did was say so, and most of us respect the hell out of that.
February 28th, 20114:25 am
I read your string earlier, saw you mentioned cutting back, and wanted to say that I had noticed. I don’t know if I’m right, or if any others’d agree, but I feel it’s made your contributions here better. You always had some good stuff, and now those ideas are more personal, more interactive, and more concentrated. More content, in less space, is what I’m sayin’.
I debated whether to say anything, but I felt like I should. I realize you couldn’t care less what I think, and that I’m in no position to critique you, in any way. But, here I am. I think I mentioned I was an ass. I’m pretty sure we both know that.
Anywho, long story short: thank you. Keep up the good read.
February 28th, 20114:27 am
I think Dentz might be a better poker player than I am. That hurts a guy’s ego…
February 28th, 20114:34 am
I saw your bit about closing comments ’cause somebody said he couldn’t read Chipper’s. Sir, I have to argue with that. The true winner was your response to ‘OB:
‘OB: Who’s going to use it against him, and how?
JD: Robert, and with his keyboard.
Priceless. Beautiful. Wurlitzer-worthy, and all that.
February 28th, 20114:37 am
sorry BAS, ward is just too witty for ya….small joke….smiles
February 28th, 20114:39 am
oh baloney I threw out a dozen or more better one liners just yesterday, than that little carnie twit jeffrey could ever come up with
February 28th, 20114:53 am
What’s up, noles?
I’m tryin’ to compose a deal for the many folks who departed. You got any ideas on how to get ‘em to come back?
February 28th, 20115:07 am
Oh, and I gotta say: Braveheart’s killin’ it. There was a stretch when his name wasn’t seen much in these parts. But the last few months: on time, and on point. Did y’all see that “Damn N8, you despise Chipper” (paraphrasing)? One post all night, struck the nail square, and drove it the hell home.
I think I’ll lift this glass in hopin’ that cat don’t go…
February 28th, 20115:54 am
“Jones’ second attempt to come back from a reconstructed knee began in earnest Sunday.”
I don’t read much Schultz. I’m an all-’OB-all-the-time, absentee Braves fan. But, ‘OB rec’d the piece, so I read it. And 10, quoted, is certainly worth the time.
But, that line above is some drivel. Some bull. Some insert-the-appropriate-damn-swear-word here. Earnest starts now? Earnest was six months ago when he decided to come back. Now is fun. I’ve never broken a frickin’ thing, and even my unedumucated ass knows 10’s earnestness started about three days after that beautiful pivot, the wrong side of third.
February 28th, 20116:03 am
Let me interrupt your string!
I am amazed that some folks are having problems that Chipper told the haters to kiss his backside.
He is not telling all fans, just the Mitchell, Mixxo’s and Robert’s of the world to stick it.
Heck, we tell them that pretty much daily, so what is the problem?
February 28th, 20116:09 am
A flange post? A Flange post? A Flange post? For real. In my go-to-freakin’-bed-middle-of-the-night rant? The Blog Gods have smiled upon me.
“Heck, we tell them that pretty much daily, so what is the problem?”
This. THIS. Many, many, many freakin’ times: THIS!
February 28th, 20116:12 am
I’m usually a Chipper critic but not this time. I don’t blame him for being irritated at those that say he’s just here for the money. I can criticize some things with Larry but I do truly believe he loves baseball.
But Chipper….”blogging in their mom’s basement”????? He needs to work on his material. LOL
More Trembley, please. Favorite comments to read so far this spring.
February 28th, 20116:21 am
Tommy, ya gotta follow the timeline, man…
2006, Mom’s basement: True, true, many times true.
2009: Joke’s played out; everyone and their grandma’s used the line (this is the point when Tomahawkin calls it a classic, or “bumps it”).
2011: 10 uses the reference, with that ‘ish-eating grin: B. E. A. Utiful.
What I’m sayin’ is: Larry Freakin’ Wayne has earned the frickin’ right. Go 10. And, even if I didn’t believe it, RHR does, and I want to marry that girl…
February 28th, 20116:29 am
I am still here, just less vocal!

Moe Berg re: your 11:32 pm
My favorite of Elisabeth Shue was and still is…Leaving Las Vegas, w/her playing the hooker Serna, that Nic Cage runs into, as she’s walkin across the street in a black leather skirt, and falls in love with, after fleeing to Vegas to drink himself to death.
February 28th, 20116:33 am
Yo Flange: shut the hell up. I’m tryin’ to picture Ms. Shue standing by her particular drunk. Might strike a little close to home, is what I’m sayin’…
In all seriousness: more vocal, man. Please. Apparently, I’m gonna have to read Mixxo again all year long. The least you could do is counteract the ‘nozzle.
February 28th, 20116:34 am
BAS – flange must have an early tee time. Been nice February weather, huh flange?
February 28th, 20116:36 am
I could handle this weather all winter!
February 28th, 20116:42 am
F’n scratch golfer…
My unhealthly jealousy is wishing Mitchellness on you right now, Flange. I realize that says MUCH more about me than it does you, but it is what is…
And, how good is the Tater? That guy can hibernate for weeks. Pops up with some info collected in the ‘05 race, and drops knowledge. With a laugh. Many laughs. Only evidence (empirical, for Shaun) I have against the guy is that everytime I see his name I think of Ron White.
February 28th, 20116:47 am
So, if it’s 6:42 am, here, on the blog… And, I do the math. I, um, think I gotta, um, subtract, um, like three hours. So, that would make it, like, um, what?
Carry the one… Wait, that’s adding. OK, how many sick days? Wait, let’s go with the cabravesfan telecommuting… Y’all think they track time, uh, spent, on that there deal?
February 28th, 20116:48 am
See Trey. This is some high-brow contribution right here. How daer you dumb it down with sober conversation…
February 28th, 20116:49 am
Yeah BAS, I ain’t forgotten that scratch thing, either. One of those dudes that hits a 6 iron, while I’m pulling a 3 wood and sez he ain’t hitting it very well.
..But he’ll give you one a side cause he’s a good guy.
February 28th, 20116:50 am
I posted on the B&S. Go tell ‘em to come back. They probably don’t know about your golf…
February 28th, 20116:54 am
I wish everyone would come back. I miss the posts of some of the old timers!
We need JJS! Forget Sonny Clusters and give us the real deal!
February 28th, 20116:56 am
I hear ya, CT.
Though, I can hit it a mile. (Or, maybe 15% of that…). My problem is I’ve only got about a 15% idea which direction the ball is headed… I’m startin’ to think that’s important… Though, I did shoot 77 once, losing three balls. I’m asdly proud of that fact…
February 28th, 20116:58 am
A 77 losing 3 balls is pretty dang good BAS!
I think you are not giving us the full story like hitting a dinger off George Sherrill……
February 28th, 20117:05 am
Felt good, flange, I gotta say. It was a slider. More of a slurve really. That little back door deal lefties’d throw ya. And, I was always a guess-guy with less than two. I don’t remember the count, but I remember lookin’ back-door slider. Probably 1-1, thinkin’ back. Took him out just right of the CF-sign. He was not happy. Mostly what I can remember was how he shut us down (we were bad), yet how short he was. I woulda said he was 5′8, 230 then. I’m curious to see him now…
Can you tell I hate talkin’ about it?
February 28th, 20117:08 am
flange – A friend just bought a set of these for a tournament coming up. Sounds like a lot of fun.
February 28th, 20117:12 am
We have a tournament at one of the clubs that I belong to that everyone plays with these wooden shafted clubs.
It is a real hoot because you have to change your swing to hit the ball straight. Hitting it far is almost impossible.
Lots of fun!
February 28th, 20117:14 am
Yeah, and guitar boy shot a 71…
February 28th, 20117:22 am
Haggard, yeah, I have been. It’s just trying to prepare for a transfer.
I didn;t think anyone would notice my soberness, BAS.
February 28th, 20117:27 am
So if one starts playing a DVR recording of ‘Rules of Engagement’ fours hours before one needs to awaken, is one a Nick/Don? Don’t answer that… How ’bout if one uses ‘one’ for a blog comment? How ’bout this: if I start said recording at precisely 4:20, should I just stop trying to be even the least bit responsible, and just smoke weed all day, everyday?
February 28th, 20117:29 am
flange – What is your stroke differential between the wood bat and the metal bat?
Shaun – How many strokes should flange give me, if he uses the hickories and I use modern tech.
February 28th, 20117:31 am
Glad to see ya made it home, Trey. And, thanks for being a good sport…
And, maybe you can help. Why am I still recording this show? I mean, Patrick Warburton is funny, but the rest of these people… David Spade’s in as good a role as can be written for the guy (and that’s sayin’ somethin’), but still, make it stop. Please. My drinkin’ is well in control relative to recording this ridiculous show…
February 28th, 20117:50 am
February 28th, 2011
flange – What is your stroke differential between the wood bat and the metal bat?
That’s modern tech that emulates wood. Right now in high school, the bats are in transition to modern tech that emulates northern ashe. Next season all bats that are not wooden must emulate wooden except youth leagues.
February 28th, 20118:03 am
I was talking about golf bats earlier, but I read a quote from Bama’s coach that they were hitting between 20 – 22 HR’s in practice, last year. This year with the spec change 6 – 8 HR’s. Wow.
SWFL Braves Fan
DOB…I am thrilled that the Braves are coming South to Fort Myers this year. Any idea on who they may be bringing on the road on Wednesday? I saw that Hudson is pitching…AWESOME! But any other lineup regulars that you know of yet?
February 28th, 20118:39 am
There is a poll on foxsports.com that says Which 2010 rookie will have the best 2011 season?
Your choices are:
our very own drumroll please….Jason Heyward-35%
February 28th, 20118:48 am
BAS Joke’s played out; everyone and their grandma’s used the line (this is the point when Tomahawkin calls it a classic, or “bumps it”).
bravo, steve! love it.
February 28th, 20118:54 am
I’m a little jealous of Robert right now. Chipper has always been one of my favorite players but I’ve never had any interaction in person through email or in a blog with Chipper but, on Sunday Chipper directly talked to Robert through Schultz blog….. It’s not fair!!!!
“I still feel like I have something to offer, and the cynical fan can really kiss my ass. I really don’t care. There’s a bunch of true fans and the people who actually want to take the time to get to know me know who I am. The guy who sits in his mom’s basement and types on his mom’s computer, I couldn’t really care less about.”
February 28th, 20118:55 am
BAS,you are often kind with words to others about their blogging and their contributions to the blog. You sir are very disparaging to your contribution to the blog,when I read anything you post I know you will make me laugh or make me think. There are names on this blog when you see them you immediately scroll or know nothing meaningful will be said,it is never you. I deem you are required to post more.
February 28th, 20119:31 am
Howdy BAS… howdy Flange. Good morning all. Glorious spring, isn’t it?
BAS – I read your post on the B&S. You are a heckuva swell guy.
Flange – about to drop a set of Kinman Woodstock Plus in my main axe. Sweet.
Now, baseball. (Homage to the Scribe.) Each infant baseball season always brings so much anticipation, but this one is particularly exciting to me on the last day of February. So many story lines… Was last year’s playoff appearance an emotional fluke? How much will Uggla affect 1-8? Can the youngster have a solid campaign at 1B? Will Schafer sink or swim? (Because there really isn’t any in between for him.) Can Nate get any headlines for something beyond his hair? Will J22 be a man-child among boys? Which stockpiled arm will Frank deal to fill a hole in the roster? And Chipper… only one question to me. How many games. He’ll be in there, oh he’ll be in there. And he has something to prove… a “chip” on his shoulder, if you’ll pardon really bad pun. He’s ticked, y’all, and I love seeing the attitude. Mess with an injured animal and you’ll know what I mean.
I could care less about analyzing stats and projecting outcomes and dissecting trends. I cannot wait to watch the games, It’s kinda like golf. You can suck like a Hoover for 17 holes and par the last, and you’ll be back next weekend. Just gimme one Schafer homerun saving leap over the wall, one 2-out 3-run homer by Mac, one late inning run-scoring double to the opposite field by the 1B wunderkind, and I’ll be back – game after game, win or lose.
I love spring. I really do…
February 28th, 20119:34 am
Interesting. If we had a dollar for every time (on this blog alone) that people claimed that DOB, Bradley, Schultz, or any other local journalist refused to ask players (and managers) the tough questions, we could afford a blog party (which we also would likely argue about).
Yet when Schultz does exactly that, both he and the player who dared answer the question so many wanted answered, are both ripped.
Why am I not even surprised?
And Nathan – yeah the thing about your kids is a take on the situation. Maybe if you wanted to adopt Chipper? Seriously – no one looks at these players like they were your wayward children and thinking they do is absurd in the extreme. Certainly not you – of all people.
February 28th, 20119:35 am
Top of the morning denizens…..had a changing of the guard here in Disney….
Braves lineup: 1. Prado LF, 2. McLouth CF, 3. Jones DH, 4. McCann C, 5. Uggla 2B, 6. Heyward RF, 7. Gonzalez SS., 8. Hinske 1B, 9. Hicks 3B
Today’s pitchers: Lowe, Linebrink, Sherrill, Gearrin, Varvaro, Juan Abreu, Oberholtzer

And “Thanks”, Carroll.

February 28th, 20119:41 am
Hey Carroll, is this your week to be in the barrel or is it just for a couple of days?
February 28th, 20119:44 am
Whoa! That lineup looks eerily similar (top 7) to what might end up being the opening day lineup including Lowe starting.
Heyward at 6. Hmmm.
Let’s hope we dont use all these pitchers on opening day.
February 28th, 20119:47 am
Carroll…I asked DOB this earlier, but then I saw you were giving him a break, so I reposted. I am thrilled that the Braves are coming South to Fort Myers this year. I have been here for 10 years and I don’t remember the Braves ever coming down here even though we have two teams here (Red Sox and Twins). Any idea on who they may be bringing on the road on Wednesday? I saw that Hudson is pitching…AWESOME! But any other lineup regulars that you know of yet?
February 28th, 20119:49 am
Hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was real fun but busy. Saw John Prine and Old Crow at the Fox and it was a great show this Friday. Washed the cars and listened to Braves on Saturday. What great weather here in Atlanta this weekend. Went down to Oysterfest yesterday…I know it’s only spring but I still hate losing to the Mets…Go Braves!
February 28th, 20119:52 am
Heyward needs to slide up to 4th and Gonzalez to 8th and you have a lineup.
February 28th, 20119:58 am
Years ago, I found a short set of irons at an estate sale, Sam Snead hickory shafts. Looked as if the previous owner had barely played them, club faces were hardly even dirty. Suckers were just beautiful. I ended up building a display case for ‘em and hung it over my desk at home.
(I did take them out to the range and hit with them first, just so I could say I had. Results were not pretty, LOL.)
February 28th, 20119:59 am
Nice lineup – and when Gearrin and Varvaro, two pitchers likely not to see time in the bigs this year give up runs and we lose the game, we can rip the pen again.
February 28th, 201110:02 am
VOR Which stockpiled arm will Frank deal to fill a hole in the roster?
theres a hole on this roster? now THATS a story.

Welcome to the party pal!
February 28th, 201110:04 am
DOB taking a day to go ride the tea cups at DisneyWorld? More power to him, the dude has been tireless in his posting of Braves news.
Great weekend of baseball despite the tie and loss. It’s only ST. Loved getting to watch Freddie rake those 3 doubles on Saturday. Starting out 3-3 is just the boost of confidence that rookie needed. Hopefully he carries it through the spring and into the season.
Not concerned about Kimbrel, don’t really care what Proctor does (is he projected to make the squad? I hope not), and encouraged to see Chipper starting out well. It’s going to be a great season, win, lose, or draw.
Any Roku owners out there? I went and downloaded the MLB.TV channel, bought my subscription, and then was all set to watch the game on my big TV only to discover that it wasn’t on, instead only giving me options to watch last year’s games. Had to watch the game on my iPhone. What’s up with that?
February 28th, 201110:07 am
Class act by Chipper there telling us to look at his bank account and then to kiss his lazy behind
Make you a deal Chipper – lead a team to a ring and then you can talk

FYI, just found this on the MLB.TV support site:
Spring Training games are not available on the Roku. 2011 live games will begin on the Roku at the start of the Regular Season.
Well, that freakin’ sucks.

Murph, I’m an ignorant old dinosaur…what is Roku?

Scoots, it’s one of those little boxes that streams media to your TV. Connects to the internet and you can watch Netflix, Amazon.com movies, MLB.TV, etc. (http://www.amazon.com/Roku-XDS-Streaming-Player-1080p/dp/B00426C57O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1298906019&sr=8-1)
When I found out that they were relatively cheap ($99) I bought 2 and an MLB.TV subscription (I live far outside the Braves’ viewing area). Was jazzed about getting to see every pitch of the season for the first time since TBS sucked the big one and took the Braves off the air.
Oh well, not a big deal, I can handle using my iPhone for spring training. I guess.
The Quick and The Dead – strange movie. Entertaining at times, but just not beleivable enough to be really gripping

A lot of us feel like ignorant old dinosaurs nowadays.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
