Time for some downtime . . .

I'm not really going to Wally World. I just think the moose had it coming.

I’m out of here for a couple of weeks. I’ll leave the other blogs opening for commenting, just play nice.

I’m guessing the Braves will still be in first place when I get back. Probably a better chance of that, anyway, than Joe Johnson still being in Atlanta. Guesses, anybody?

See you soon, Jeff.

Going to South Africa?

Brazil-Argentina will be a heckuva final.

Tell your *expletive* editors they’re fools for not carrying a story about the WPS all star game on Wednesday. The best female players on the entire planet are here and there’s not a *expletive* word about it in the AJC Online.

Have a great holiday.
Don’t give up on Joe.
Don’t believe the Orlando Sentinel.
Your Furman Bisher/Hank Greenburg imaginary quote sticks in the mind.
It was platinum.
I don’t think you will ever rise above that.
I guess you peaked too early.

We have lovely beaches in North Carolina. Lovely mountains, too. Heck, the whole darn state is just lovely, so come see us, Jeff.

you take almost as many vacations as Obama does Jeff. Making snarky comments on sports 3 or 4 times a week and bashing hunters and fisherman must be really tough work. Vick will probably be suspended again when you get back and you can defend him.

I’m waiting for you at Haulover Beach with a brunette, a blonde, a redhead, and we are discussing philosophy and quantum physics. The little umbrella-hut boy is bringing us frozen margaritas exactly every 22 minutes. I’ll be the guy wearing one flip-flop because I lost the other one yesterday.

Downtime? What exactly do you DO to need downtime?

I thought you were just off. Radio and Newspaper dudes have the life, just like teachers.

Time for some downtime . . .The first thing that came to mind was…Jeff’s fallen and he can’t get up.

Visiting this blog over the next couple of weeks could be like going into a neighbor’s house when they’re on vacation and rummaging through their things. Not that I’ve ever done that.

Name ERA Wins
Lowe 4.42 9-5
Kawakami 4.48 1-9
Hanson 4.50 7-5

I guess with your logic next week, we should send Hanson to the bull pen?

@ PARKER POUNDER 69: sorry that you have had bad experiences with teachers, most really are there to help and love it, although some may be worn down by the system. That said, how dare you lump teachers in with Radio and Newspaper dudes. Teachers spend their own money and tons of extra time a year with students and situations who need it. If teachers were paid by the hour and reimbursed for all of their expenses the state couldn’t afford public education.
That said, I mean this as no slight to Radio and Newspaper dudes, just that teachers get shorted on their respect most of the time.

Heck Shultz, take a couple of months of you need them.

I meant, take a couple of months, IF you need them, but you can stay longer, if you want to.

The six year scoring average for Joe Johnson and Josh Smith are exactly the same. Johnson is not the superstar the ASG has tried to claim.

Vick’s getting railroaded by the system once again, which is always trying to keep him down.

Vick Rules: Vick lied yet again…..saying he was gone half an hour before the shooting took place….your boy Vick is a punk and a thug, not to mention a tool and a moron. So are his supporters.
HE was not even supposed to be associating with the other thugs he got into trouble with and he invites him to his birthday party ? Besides a party to celebrate Vick being born ? Why the hell would THAT be cause for celebration….morel like a cause for celibacy !!
