When I was listening to Kevin this morning via streaming, the plan was basically Georgia State would buy the "property" where Turner Field sits and level it. They would then build a retail/residentual "village" with a new football stadium to call their own. Not that the idea is sound but let's look at the big picture: How popular is football at State? Where does Turner Field sit NEXT too? I'm sure Georgia State has some successful alumni but not enough to sell what they want to in donations. Raise the student fees? That'll make the trustees real popular. I hate to say this, but it's definitely lose-lose. Especially where student safety is involved.
Jay - Thanks. I was like "How could you leave out Adam Dunn?" I saw this guy in at least four Lookouts games before getting called up and literally making a name for himself.
"Miguel Cabrera played there and everyone who watched him believed him to be a star of the future. (He did win a triple crown after all.) But the same definitely could have been said of Mark Pryor during his appearance and even a Jeff Francoeur."
Having a massive brain lapse but who was the guy who played for the Lookouts before being called up to the Reds who became a star player for the Reds franchise? I'm thinking Alan something. Using Google is not helping.
Also, one for the mailbag: How do the politics of money games actually work? The reason I am asking is because while most people see them as more of a necessity then a typical game, there are those sparks of enjoyment that comes with the ultrarare David vs. Golith upset that no Hollywood script can memic. That being said, I would much rather see Alabama play North Dakota State then obviously Western Carolina for the money game this year. And with three FCS titles, I would say WHY HOT? You don't think Fargo wouldn't travel down to Tuscaloosa for that? I guarantee you it would be THREE to FIVE times the number of people coming down from Culhullowee/Sparta.
::To add to chase's comment:: And Russ Huesman is now the guy in the community formally known as "Rodney" (No respect, no respect, I tell ya)
How I back this up?: Orange and White game: 70,000 people. Alabama Crimson and White game 70,000. How many at the Blue and Gold game? ::crickets chirping SFX::
Jay - (Regarding the now extremely dated DMNs) Your welcome as always.
First things first,
WLS - When I say nothing is going on, I'm talking about me personally and what I'm following. Not the sports world in general. This week I'm doing extra hours due to more work and human resources needed to help with the demand. So by the time I get home (6:30), be done with dinner (8:30 to 9:00), I'm usually working on stuff that is front burner. Last night I was setting up by Google Docs account for a freelance writing position while listening to Tokyo Tower on wawl.org. Also, I have a web TV show audition this weekend. So this week, I can only peek at the 5 & 10 and I'm unable to follow the Rangers (when compared to last week against Seattle). So when I say stuff like that, I'm talking about what I can follow at the moment (I didn't even get to read your comment until 9:30 last night).
Anyway, I don't see anything for today other then the two cents on Sammy Sosa (agree with the writing). If something breaking like Will Wade signs all the players who opt out after the Conz left, I'll be happy to contribute. Later
Bucket List: Wrigley Field, AT&T Park (SF Giants) just because of the location, Lambeau Field (highly unlikely). That is all. Sorry, not much going on.
"Speaking of fun baseball, how about JMC's Rangers, who now have four walk-off wins this season. And they beat King Felix last night. Good times."
Sadly, I missed that game. Fox Sports Southwest carries the games locally but for what ever baloney reason, last night they decided to carry the game on their high-end channel 903 to-broke-to-afford-that-s#$*&^ HD station. So I missed it. ): I did catch all the others so I know we're on a good streak.
Peter Billingsley was techincally not a one and done child actor. He did two other "kid" films post Christmas Story. One was "The Dirt Bike Kid" which was pretty good for it's time. Had Annie Potts playing his mother and the creepy fat guy from "Not Necessarily The News" or NNTN for short playing this evil bank president trying to do land acquisition. The other one I recall was "Beverly Hills Brat" which went straight to video. He also is known, and you can find this on YouTube, a spot he use to do for Hershey's chocolate syrup (aka the one regarding the cans in the garage). It aired back when Saturday Supercade aired on CBS and Pac-Man on ABC. ^^
What I didn't know that he was turning 43. I thought he was my age.
At least he went on to greater things (he's actually a working producer now). As suppose to the kid who played Sharwtz(the frozen pole kid). Apparently 1) it's that big and 2) yeah, he uses the tongue for that now.
I know everyone else is talking about the cows, the chickens, and the hogs regarding Cozgate (Don't care and don't blame him) but I wanted to give Stephen Universe credit for the five questions regarding the Mocs preseason. In the meantime, ugly, UGLY game Monday in this series against Seattle. The good news was of course the bats were a little hotter last night. Prince Fielder keeps reminding me too much of a black Babe Ruth (shape-wise). But it was nice to see him finally hit his first single homer.
Thank you for the follow-up. Did the DMNs arrive before you left?
Not much for the Masters, or golf in general, minus Steven Fox's UTC for 15. My Rangers appear to be going 50/50 and hopefully I can take in my first game next week.
They're based out of Detroit, Michigan (I know because every news article from here, Nooga.com, WRCB, etc. says so).
...and several posters on Facebook already beat me to the Jake/Elwood punch. ^^()
