one of my deepest posts…although I repeat it occasionally
February 11th, 201210:31 pm
I almost never post without reading the blog. I’m reminded why. I’m sorry. (And Jeffrey – I have no one on payroll – trust me!)

Punta Gorda has an airport
February 11th, 201210:34 pm
tiger297 mentioned Punta Gorda as a meeting place and now I know why, airport
February 11th, 201210:35 pm
Punta Gorda is too far away! Would take over 3 days to drive there Vegas is much closer
February 11th, 201210:39 pm
patio – yep punta gorda does have an airport…one of many in the country
Vegas has an airport…
February 11th, 201210:40 pm
cab – so ur saying you don’t want to meet the florida crew…I’m guessing some of them would find the trek to vegas difficult
February 11th, 201210:41 pm
I’d love to meet the Florida crew…but I don’t like to fly (and it IS a bit pricey for us to fly out there…)
February 11th, 201210:44 pm
flights to atlanta aren’t that expensive and I can fly you the rest of the way….
February 11th, 201210:45 pm
I do not fly in small planes. Has noting to do with you or your ability…just don’t do it
February 11th, 201210:47 pm
And flights to Atlanta would cost us upwards of $650 in April…not super cheap
February 11th, 201210:48 pm
I think that with most pitchers who develop the under rotator cuff tear that are able to pitch through it are able to because they don’t use so much upper body to pitch. I think with Hanson, that was probably one of the reasons that it put so much pressure on his shoulder. It’s smart for him to work on his mechanics now before he has too much damage to his body. If this change turns out well it could be the thing that propels him into the true upper echelon of pitchers in the NL and makes him the true No. 1 on our pitching staff.
February 11th, 201210:52 pm
I think this was a bit better than Beyonce
February 11th, 201210:54 pm
$350 to orlando or fort myers…that is close enough
that’s per person. There are 2 of us (that’s what the ATL price reflects)- that’s $700 for just airfare…
February 11th, 201210:56 pm
I’ll bet nolie will let you use the doghouse for a couple nights
February 11th, 201210:57 pm
Dude. I don’t want to crash in the doghouse! There’s a reason I stick people like nolie in there…
February 11th, 201211:01 pm
regardless march 24th is my only free weekend for a while and I think I’m going fishing at jekyll island
February 11th, 201211:03 pm
March is not the best month for us. If we are going to head out that way, we will do it when the Braves are in town March is also when we are headed to Vegas for my birthday
February 11th, 201211:05 pm
February 11th, 201211:06 pm
awesome…maybe we should take mcfann to vegas for her 21st?
February 11th, 201211:07 pm
Batting average,on base % read Ray’y post directly above mine dont be confused
February 11th, 201211:10 pm
February 11th, 2012
It seems like an afterthought sometimes, doesn’t it?
ok that is what I thought the 2nd two were what was the 37?
February 11th, 201211:11 pm
February 11th, 201211:14 pm
Old people live in St Pete. Their parents live in Punta Gorda
wow…that might be a bit aggresive there…top 6 in MLB in HR’s?
February 11th, 201211:19 pm
I was responding to Ray he was asking people to prognosticate who would be tops in those three stats I took a guess if J hey can drive the ball this year the way he grounded out to 2nd last year i think can can rack up the homers but I’ve been a braves “homer” for over 43 years
February 11th, 201211:20 pm
then the hipsters must be in clearwater then
February 11th, 201211:22 pm
nothing wrong with that at all…wouldn’t surprise me to see him as our #2HR guy but more likely low 30’s to high 20’s. but I’ll take 37 any day of the week
February 11th, 201211:23 pm
If he goes back to taking bad picthes and driving “his”pitch he can do it he might not but he could anything is possible and he’s got talent but maybe he hits 40 is the ball juiced this year
February 11th, 201211:29 pm
Spring training cannot get here fast enough! (I’m going to say this every day until it does!)
February 11th, 201211:33 pm
Hang in there, girl! 8 days to go
February 11th, 201211:36 pm
February 11th, 201211:39 pm
Once you reach a certain age, there seems to be little reason to rush along the days, which go by quickly enough on their own…
February 11th, 201211:40 pm
VJ – yes that darn mathmatical theory at work again…
February 11th, 201211:50 pm
Frank Wren does not heed;
What the Braves do need;
Because they have no hitter;
The fans are in a dither;
For a new GM they do plead.
February 11th, 201211:54 pm
So would people be happier with a new GM that mortgaged the future of the team for aging “stars” that do nothing to guarantee a world series or even more wins? (see Yankees, New York OR Phillies, Philadelphia) How is that better than where the team currently is? All that would do is cause people to relive the Tex trade and complain about it for years to come.
February 11th, 201211:55 pm
let ‘em plead. and let them eat cake while they’re at it….
February 11th, 201211:57 pm
don’t feed the trolls
February 11th, 201211:59 pm
cake hell I just want the oldest to come home so I can have a single malt b4 bed
February 12th, 201212:02 am
sorry tiger I didn’t know any quotes showing indifference and disdain that involved single malt scotch……
February 12th, 201212:05 am
Hello everyone! Whitney Houston will be missed,and her voice will be missed too. Nats will not finish ahead of the Braves,and niether will the Fish.All you whinners are truely pathetic,and shouldn’t be Braves Fans……..
February 12th, 201212:06 am
Where are trolls? And wnat’s wrong with blended scotch?
February 12th, 201212:07 am
February 12th, 201212:08 am

February 12th, 201212:09 am
Braves will be in the Play-Offs! Bank on It!!!!!!!!!!Play-Offs Here we come Baby!!!!!!!!
February 12th, 201212:11 am
less cachet MiBF
MIBravesFan-Sad about Whitney.She had one heck of a voice,and very talented.
Hi Ward! You’re not a bad guy. I’m sorry if I’ve been unkind at times.
February 12th, 201212:12 am
nolie-The World lost a great artist.
Braves will play the season with eclat
MIBravesFan- It’s all cool………
February 12th, 201212:13 am
yes sad to hear ward, RIP Ms Houston
February 12th, 2012
less cachet MiBF”
February 12th, 201212:14 am
I knew that you knew
I’m excited to see three players around 22 years of age,and the team getting younger,and more talented. Looking forward to seeing our young Braves.
wait its easier to catch blended scotch? I havent had problems catching either.
February 12th, 201212:15 am
In what kind of limerick-challenged world does hitter rhyme with dither?
Not to mention the 5-5-7-7-8 pattern, which is neither iambic or trochaic…
My Korean student who has been here for four months is much more competent at structuring verses…
nolie – . . . . .
February 12th, 201212:18 am
Koreans are smart, many Braves fans are not…oops that don’t rhyme either.
say, this stuff is harder than it looks
February 12th, 201212:19 am
I’m not spelling anything right
February 12th, 201212:20 am
you got nolie right thats what counts
February 12th, 201212:22 am
I see you have your priorities right tiger
February 12th, 201212:23 am
VJ- Got My Eli Manning Shirt Today,and My Super Hat,and shirt,should come in by next week some time.
It is hilarious that people are commenting on my poor limericks. I spend about thirty seconds thinking about them before I write them. I care little about the pattern ( I know it shows). If I can get someone to respond I have accomplished my purpose.
February 12th, 201212:25 am
your purpose is to get ridiculed? you can aim higher than that
February 12th, 201212:26 am
I was kind enough to respond to your incompetence with structure so as not to comment on what a total moron you are…
Congrats again Ward! And VJ!
February 12th, 201212:27 am
negative attention is better than no attention at all tiger, it is the basis for most teenager/busy parents brouhahas. something to look forward too
February 12th, 201212:29 am
MIBravesFan-Thanks,and Plan on ordering some Braves gear next month.
February 12th, 201212:31 am
February 12th, 201212:32 am
Unreal. A breaker goes shi**y and knocks out the power on the coldest night I can remember in a while. Sometimes I scratch my head and wonder if someody loves playing tricks on me.
February 12th, 201212:34 am
Time to go get some rest so I can have enough energy to walk out to get the paper in the morning – good night, all!
February 12th, 201212:35 am

February 12th, 201212:36 am
I hope you don’t freeze b4 you get the breaker fixed Brian, snuggle up with the better half
February 12th, 201212:38 am
And I have an entire hour of work tomorrow…not sure how I do it…
February 12th, 201212:40 am
Honest to . . . . I’m inclined to let U2 loose on the blog!
February 12th, 201212:41 am
She’s definitely helping and so is my dog at my feet, nolie. Thanks
I don’t know what’s worse … the dark and cold, or all the little noises I’m hearing with it being so quiet. We always sleep with a fan. Oh well, I always think things could be a lot worse and they could be.
February 12th, 201212:44 am
February 12th, 201212:46 am
If I performed like Frank;
If I performed like Frank;
A new job I would take;
While the Braves sent a letter;
Other teams got better;
No moves did the GM make.
Braves sent a
February 12th, 201212:47 am
Huh nolie? Sorry, I don’t know if that last one was to me or not.
February 12th, 201212:50 am
This would be what I was thinking.
Glad you can understand that steve. I sure as f*- don’t.
February 12th, 201212:52 am
nolie- Have a good one! Once again my deepest feelings to Whitney Houston.She will be missed,and peace my friends……..

Stand and listen – the greatest version of our national anathem ever — http://music.yahoo.com/videos/WhitneyHouston/The-Star-Spangled-Banner–2153890
February 12th, 201212:55 am
She was Beyonce? Really?!!!!
February 12th, 201212:56 am
Before I go my favorite song from Whitney is “One Moment In Time”,Talk tomorrow…..
February 12th, 20121:00 am
Ward – great song!
February 12th, 20121:05 am
gotta say i met whitney and bobby brown twice at chopstix. sean cash the bartender their will confirm it.
she was very nice. loved the white russians.
February 12th, 20121:09 am
MIBravesFan: I have been a huge music fan since I was a kid in the 50’s, plus I was in the music business for 30+ years, and my all-time favorite song is “New Years Day” by U2. I usually listen to it every night before I go to bed, it always puts me in a good mood.
February 12th, 20121:14 am
when its sleepy time down south…….
February 12th, 20121:23 am
chopstix was their place.
February 12th, 20121:36 am
Hey uga: keeping warm? Looks like Hines Ward may be done, the Steelers are acting like they don’t want him back and he said he doesn’t want to play anywhere else. He had a lot better career than anyone could have expected, IMHO.
February 12th, 20121:44 am
Good night, and take care everyone!
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
