We ran across this on a Jimmy Fallon telecast.
Very funny. Thanks to Brian Williams and NBC news:

Today's Major League Baseball Hall of Fame Ceremony...Had quite a "Georgia on My Mind" feeling.
Consider this: Tom Glavin, Greg Maddux and Bobby Cox all played or coached in Atlanta.
Joe Torre played and later managed in Atlanta. Tony La Russa spent a year with the Braves as a player.
And...the "Bit Hurt" himself...Frank Thomas...was born in Columbus, Georgia.
But our three...deserve their due justice:

"The Broncos are very saddened that Mr. Bowlen is no longer able to be part of the team's daily operations due to his condition," the team said in a statement. "We continue to offer our full support, compassion and respect to 'Mr. B,' who has faced Alzheimer's disease with such dignity and strength."

Last night, the ..."Association"...known around these parts as the NBA...held their annual draft.
Our beloved Atlanta Hawks had the 15th pick...and...
Selected a 4 year college player out of Michigan State.
His name is Adreian Payne and he is 6feet 10 inches tall.
The mere fact he stayed in college all 4 years should raise a red flag to the obvious.
But these are the Hawks. Mediocrity... win 40 games...make the playoffs...lose in the 1st round.
Nod....if you've heard this before.
We have no quarrel with Mr. Payne. Our quarrel lies with the Hawks management...or lack there of.
How many 7 feet stiffs...are already in this league? Riding the bench....night after night.
The league has changed. It's about who can shoot the three pointer....and who can get physical on defense. (See San Antonio vs. Miami).
The Hawks drafted a big man...They need scorers. Maybe this big man will make liars out of us and not only defend the paint...but shoot 3's too!
Anyway here is Mr. Payne's bio...courtesy of Wikipedia:

America wins...when they lose?
The clock runs forward...instead of counting down?
They add...minutes to the game?
There are no...."TV" timeouts?
This...is ...us. We need structure.....4 quarters....a halftime show. A shot clock! Instant replay.
"Fut-ball" just doesn't do it.
Yes...we are a bit late. But only by a day. It is indeed summertime...in this small southern college town.
Forgive us for not posting more...but there are other things in life that takes away our precious time.
Jobs...family...friends. You understand, right?
Here's what we're "humping" on...today:
To amplify GaPeach913... "There's no biting in Soccer"!
Welcome back...Tiger Woods!
Shaky Start For Tiger Woods
But..."the freak"...sure can pitch:

No air-conditioning...No LeBron ...No Miami victory.
Strange game last night. For three and a half quarters it was nip and tuck. Close.
100 degrees on the floor. Then James goes out.
Strange game...this game 1!
From the San Antonio paper:
I have never had a cramp. But I have been around athletes who have...and women who have them monthly.
So all these haters? Take a chill pill. Give King James a break.

The NFL made history today in their annual draft. The Saint Louis Rams selected a gay guy as the 249th pick.
Michael Sam...the SEC defensive player of the year...finally got the call.
32 NFL teams though Sam was not better than the other 248.
Which brings us to this. Sam...maybe a decent player...but.
What locker room wants to see this? And go into battle ...with that?

No humidity....no rain.
Soft, pleasing winds. No flies or mosquitoes.
Mothers Day approaching....
The NFL draft tomorrow...The NBA Play-offs are in full bloom.
The Braves finally won a game...after losing 7 straight.
It doesn't get much better than this.
Let's see what we have worth following on a Wednesday.
After further review...she ain't that cute!
