I seem to remember him saying he would, Murph.
Outta here. I think I will be like CHIPPER,not nervous. I will have a nap before gametime [if possable]. Lets have a good one. BELIEVE IN THE MEDS.
October 5th, 20122:29 pm
How is it not yet 5 o’clock???
October 5th, 20122:30 pm
Indeed. And the flat bill is gold.
Someone brought up this being the longest day. Great idea. Going to pop in “The Longest Day” and watch until first pitch. Always loved that movie.
October 5th, 20122:31 pm
usnavyvolfaninva – Amazing movie! watch it every memorial day
October 5th, 20122:33 pm
@cabravesfan……Hi, how you making it today? A woman of your calibre, certainly fine I trust.
it’s 5 o’clock somewhere

Lohse and Medlen are a combined 26-4 this season. Elias says that combined .867 winning percentage is highest in post season history.
October 5th, 20122:38 pm
Chipper playing in his 93rd post season tilt today.Leads N L all time
October 5th, 20122:39 pm
Just found out I get to drive downtown at 3:30 today, which not only is (obviously) right in the middle of the game, it will put me very close to rush hour on the way back…yay!
October 5th, 20122:41 pm
usnavy Going to pop in “The Longest Day” and watch until first pitch
ever been to normandy? its awesome/humbling to walk omaha beach, see the parachute hooked on saint mere ieglies, and point du hoc is one of the most amazing places ive ever been.

The #Braves and #Cardinals played 6 times this season. The team that scored first won EVERY TIME. #Braves 5 wins, #Cardinals 1 out of the 6.
October 5th, 20122:43 pm
Whispering……Thanks for the XM?
I will Pick my MVP of this Game…its FREDDIE FREEMAN With two Bump…..
October 5th, 20122:45 pm
Cabravesfan…….Does your Maserati not ‘weave and bob’ with the best of them out there?
Dap – I lived in Moscow for 2 years. I got to see the monument of how far the Nazis got into Russia.
October 5th, 20122:47 pm
It’s hard to bob and weave when there are cars on all sides
October 5th, 20122:48 pm
BUD is anti ATLANTA from his silly play-in game to the start times
Oh George George
October 5th, 20122:49 pm
I don’t know why anybody’s worried. Clearly the storyline goes that after a year of beating themselves up, the Braves finally get revenge on the Cardinals.
October 5th, 20122:51 pm
FEAR I lived in Moscow for 2 years. I got to see the monument of how far the Nazis got into Russia.
there a movie about that ive always wanted to see. about russian snipers i believe…what was it called?

October 5th, 20122:55 pm
dap – gates or something
October 5th, 20122:56 pm
FEAR – just curious, what were you doing in Moscow for 2 years?
October 5th, 20122:59 pm
my dad was a defense attache for the us navy back in 93-95.
October 5th, 20123:03 pm
This day is taking for-e-ver.
Scoots is undoubtedly avoiding all this positive crap on here today….depressing.
Win One For The Chipper
October 5th, 20123:10 pm
“This day is taking for-e-ver.”
You ain’t kidding.
#Braves Chipper: “Riding in w/ my mom and dad today, I turned and told my dad, this is why I know it’s time to go: I’m not even nervous.”
Is that supposed to make us feel good? What the hell….I assume he gives a crap, but why say this?
October 5th, 20123:11 pm
“but why say this?”
It’s called confidence
October 5th, 20123:14 pm

No Scoots? What….you mean we don’t have to hear the incessant b*tching about why the team isn’t 100% constructed to his liking and his boy isn’t playing….
October 5th, 20123:16 pm
But I also know that feeling because I’ve had it, as have we all at times, I’m sure.
Anyway, I guess we’ll see.
How bout we win one WITH Chipper rather than for him?
You didn’t get the entire quote…
He also said that he’s ready for the game and thats part of it….
October 5th, 20123:17 pm
Yes….as they said in Sandlot….
October 5th, 20123:22 pm
Under two hours now.
TBS carries the game.
I’m ready. Lets get a 1-2-3tpo of the first, then get some early runs.
That’ll get the crowd into it and give Meds more confidence.
105 minutes ….
And can’t go ANY slower!
October 5th, 20123:23 pm
Very satisfied with Fredi’s pick of Rossy and Meds for today. They work very confidently with each other, Rossy has some pop in his bat, relatively quicker on the basepaths than #16 and can make an accurate throwdown to 2nd. Looking for a low scoring game and no fingernails left in the 9th.
October 5th, 20123:24 pm
And I won’t be on here for the game.
I’ll celebrate with all yall after the game.
Somewhere between 7 and 8 tonight.
Fire ‘time’! It’s too slow.
October 5th, 20123:25 pm
so TBS here says the Braves game is at 8pm. whats up with that?
October 5th, 20123:26 pm
Jersey Gil : did you make the move to CO? Thanks for sharing your Clemente story. So shocking for your whole country.
who is scoots’ “boy” ?
October 5th, 20123:28 pm
Hmm…dunno….apparently your TBS is dumber than mine
And BMac….b*tched b*tched b*tched for FOUR hours about Mac not being in the lineup…..more than a Chihuahua not being able to get to the mailman
noile – “so TBS here says the Braves game is at 8pm. whats up with that?’
Thats the postgame clubhouse celebration.
October 5th, 20123:29 pm
T- minus 99 minutes to gametime….
Better get that PB&H ready for Meds….
October 5th, 20123:30 pm
Choppinmama ..No…i still in south Jersey….The Economic is Bad…i can’t sell my house…I was planning to moved back to Cherokee County, GA (Woodstock) where my Kids Live.
October 5th, 20123:31 pm
There you are Murph. Did anyone bite on the sign deal for the game?
The ‘No Hanna Rule = Meds” sign?
hmmm, I don’t really think of scoots as a ‘bitcher’……
guess the pressure of the big game got to him

Radio pregame starts in 18 minutes
Time to get stoked!
October 5th, 20123:34 pm
Jimmy, I didn’t see anyone say they’d make the sign.
Very disappointing. We were up to $15. That would have been a hot dog and a soda.
October 5th, 20123:36 pm
Time to get stoked!….I’m ready…..GO BRAVES…I got my house decorate with Braves stuff….In the front Porch with the Braves Flag…..This is a Phillis Country…i just get in everyone face…for the past 4 year this Phillis fan included my wife get in to my face….it’s time to get back to them…..
October 5th, 20123:37 pm
Meds has a peanut butter & honey sandwich before every start
October 5th, 20123:39 pm
now this is a real fan, attended ALL brewers games this year -
On Chipper’s “I’m not nervous tweet” – RETIRE right now Larry! Just ratire!
October 5th, 20123:41 pm
oh, honey. did not know that. it’s good as is PB and King Syrup
October 5th, 20123:42 pm
Murph – Too bad. If someone had agrred to do it, they would have become a legend on this blog. Talked about forever.
Gil – Got my Braves flatbill on. Taco salad being prepared by the Mrs. for the 5:05 first pitch.

October 5th, 20123:45 pm
Jimmy….I got spanish rice…Beans…..Chicken finger…..Salad…..Fish Taquitos….
October 5th, 20123:49 pm
shot and a beer should loosen ya up
October 5th, 20123:51 pm
Thanks Jersey Gil for your 3:45 post.
After showing the wife, my menu has been upgraded. Items added include Carribean Style Chicken wings, nachos and chesse sticks.
October 5th, 20123:53 pm
my dinner tonight –
October 5th, 20123:54 pm
You know, I was fine….or about as fine as fine can be…
AND then Don Sutton came on the air and made me nervous….
Sorry Don, but I don’t want it to come down to one hop or one bloop….as those never seem to go our way….
No thanks….lets put up a crooked number early!
October 5th, 20123:55 pm
October 5th, 20123:56 pm
come on guys (and gals), stop being nervous and start drinking
Now that we’re down to an hour to go I’m gonna go ahead and sign off the ol’ blog.
Enjoy the game everyone!
October 5th, 20123:57 pm
i got fajitas and fireworks on tap for the victory tonight
Might have been Lowe’s problem – too loose LOL
October 5th, 20123:58 pm
Would love to, but given I have 2 hours left at work, I’m sure that would be greatly frowned upon by my superiors
Does anybody have a link where I can listen to the game?? I am so lucky I get to work late
Enjoy the game Murph….
If we win, make sure to Tweet or FB me….I may not make it back to the ol blog
October 5th, 20123:59 pm
Can you stream?
Check out: http://forum.wiziwig.eu
Chippa's the man
Is the game live on Peachtree TV ? Or anyother non-cable TV channel ?
October 5th, 20124:01 pm
Or try here for radio:
OK…Braves Country…I’m Out….i like LEW i don’t blog in game time…GO BRAVES
P-Town – Try Hennigans…The No Smell, No Tell Scotch.
October 5th, 20124:04 pm
Prediction: David Ross fails us at the plate
The game is on TBS and they paid alot of money for it. So would think access is limited to that.
i off course hate this unfair 1-game play-in cr*p but anticipation for this game is filling me up with some weird kind of barely-contained euphoria and excitement mixed with complete peace, and this is without imbibing or inhaling anything….
Good one….gotta love Kramer
October 5th, 20124:06 pm
Veer with some more wisdom and positive vibes.
October 5th, 20124:07 pm
Chippa’s the man – game’s on TBS, tho you can search vipboxsports site for online streaming
inside my head: Please win please win please win please win please win please win PLEEEAAAAASSSEEEEE WIIINNNNNNNNN
Exactly 1 hour from game time now…..
Hopefully we are all partying in some way before end of the night
October 5th, 20124:09 pm
prediction: we will lose and the sky will fall and the world will end
October 5th, 20124:10 pm
You cry yourself to sleep tonight in the fetal position when you realize all your dreams will NEVER come true
Five o clock shadows bring it home Hoss
October 5th, 20124:11 pm
Don’t make me reach through that computer
If the sky falls and the world ends, but I can’t watch the end until 4 hours later (while maintaining an information blackout), does that mean I will have the apocalyptic experience before the game ends, or when I actually watch it?
just elaborating on the Veer approach….
October 5th, 20124:13 pm
you will be watching it upstairs or down, better. bring lots of cold soda just in case…..
Does anyone know who’s doing the game for TBS?
October 5th, 20124:14 pm
Thanks for the help, I’m trying to find one that will work. I used to connect to some small town radio stations website but I can’t remember which one
October 5th, 20124:15 pm
veer – Are you a Mayan or something? Or do you have your own doom and gloom calendar?
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
