Taking a short time-out

closedJust a quick note to let you know I’m out for a few days.

I’ve left most of the blogs open for commenting, including the most recent one: my third annual completely subjective rankings of area sports teams.

I should be back later this week, although I can’t guarantee Johnny Damon will have made a decision by then about whom to sign with.

Thanks. Jeff

If Damon really got a $14M offer as Boros stated, why hasn’t he jumped on it …………..I mean other than the fact he would have to live in Detroit?

Damon will be a Tiger when you get back, unless some other team jumps up and beats their offer.

And I thought Terence Moore was the only one that could say – I have nothing to say today – and make so many people so happy. Jeff, you are actually much more knowledgable of sports than you come across in your writings. Why don’t you take this week and reassess yourself for when you come back and try to actually be the sports person that you have the potential to be.
As you are today, you come across as being provocative, instead of being intuitive. And if you do not know what those two words mean, read your columns for the past 3-6 months and assess them as if you were not the one who actually wrote them. You will realize that the person doing the writing, is nowhere near as intuitive as he thinks he is, he is just provocative.
The thing about Terence Moore is that outside of his obvious outspoken prejudices, he occasionally said something provocatively positive.
WOW! Never thought I would use the words provocative, positive and Terence Moore in the same sentence, discussing one subject, in a positive manner. I think I will quit now, I am becoming provocative, instead of intuitive! Or in this case is it intuitive instead of provocative? Hmm, yep, time to quit.

If you are going to do a ranking list of all the local sports teams… how about an updated list of the local sports heads coaches?

DTC — lecturing Jeff about his writing style? Really? And since when are provocative and intuitive mutually exclusive?

As for the mutt fans griping about Jeff’s supposed anti-UGA bias, get over yourselves. If the Pups were any good, he wouldn’t have so many easy targets. You guys get as sensitive as the tip of my willy whenever anyone dares point out that things aren’t perfect in Athens.

They told me to take a few days off and when I came back, they’d taken my desk away and replaced it with a pink slip.
