A Tuskegee Salute!

Kudos...to the Atlanta Falcons organization.

With all the bad going on in the NFL these days, this is very refreshing.

Atlanta...we applaud you!

The Falcons will honor a living member of the Tuskegee Airmen during Sunday’s game vs. Cleveland.
According to the club’s website, the Falcons will recognize 98-year-old Edward Johnson, a sergeant in the United States Army Air Corps during World War II.
Johnson served with the 332nd Fighter Group and 477th Bombardment Group, serving as an instrument-flying instructor, the Falcons said.
The Tuskegee Airmen were African-American members of the Air Corps and the U.S. Army Air Forces whose ranks included pilots who flew bombing missions in World War II.
According to the Falcons, Johnson is a long-time fan of the club who has never attended a game. He will be accompanied by one of his daughters.
The ceremony will occur sometime during the first half, the Falcons said.

Thoughts...On A Friday


















It is a Friday!

I am on vacation!

All is well with the world!

Five things.....I think I think:

1.  I think...I am better off...in the "deep south"...than in Buffalo, NY.

2.  My trip to North Caroling...this Tuesday...will be..."Very Interesting".

3.  Don't think...I will be ...firing up the grill in Cary.

4.  I think...we need to leave by 8am or 9am...to get to Cary before dark.

5.  I really, really...really...really...needed this vacation! 

Spare the Rod?

This Adrian Peterson thing has gone way too far.  How can another man or woman ...tell another...how to discipline his own children?

To "whip"?  Or not "whip"?

Me?  I never had to spank...beat... or whip my daughter.  A stern look...was sufficient.  A talking to.

But not all children ...are the same.  My late stepson...Sam...was very much indifferent to a talking to.  The only thing he responded to...and understood was a swift blow to the chest. It got his attention.

I can remember growing up...I got a whipping or two...with an extension cord.  Hell,  back in the day...I remember all my Kindergarten teachers and 1st and 2nd grade teachers...having their "straps" and "paddles".

I think I turned out okay.   My siblings turn out okay.   No mass murderers...none of us in prison.

But back then there was no YouTube...no social media.  

But today....Is today.   A different world.  Watch what you do...for the whole world is watching.

I feel for Mr. Peterson.   He did to his son...what was done to him.  He was brought up where "whipping"...via...switches...was common.

Don't make it right.

Still...Is it right to take away a man's career?  Make it where he can't earn a living in his profession?

Cuz we disagree with his child rearing?

Spare the rod?

It's...Just the Hawks

The Atlanta Hawks...are just that.

Just...the Hawks.

Only the Hawks can lose to a Los Angeles Laker team...with only 1 win.

Only the Hawks can have a sold out arena...but 70%...rooting for the Lakers.

Only the Hawks...can make a 36 year old Kobe Bryant...look like a 26 year old ...Kobe.

Only the Hawks.

Why? "Gurley Man" Why?

An open letter to Todd Gurley:

Dear Todd,

We acknowledge you are an exceptional football player with extraordinary talents.  Fact is though...you have never played an entire season.  Last year you got hurt.  This year you were suspended.  4 games.  You then...for reasons we cannot understand ...decided to come back and play in the final 3 games. 

Why?  

An NFL running back has a career longevity of about 3.5 years.  You were going to be a 1st round draft pick...You should  have told Georgia...thanks...but no thanks.   "I have made the University millions of dollars...let me earn my degree...and move on ...to the NFL."

But no!  Instead...you came back to play in a college football game...tore your ACL on your knee...will need surgery....and possibly...cost you and the family.....millions.

Why?

2 Bad Teams...1 Awful Game

Awful .... Awful...Awful.

That's what the NFC South is...that's what the Carolina Panthers..are..That's what the Atlanta Falcons are.

The Falcons tried to lose...The Panthers did lose.

At the end of the day...The Falcons are in 1st place!  Go figure.  They can't run the ball...can't stop the run...Gave up a 16-3 lead...

But...this is our NFL...On Any Given Sunday?

 

Can You Fell the Beat?

We almost forgot what a good drum beat...or drum line...sounded like.

Remember this classic "Last Battle" from the movie "Drumline"?

Our Atlanta Falcons suck...

Our Beloved UGA Dawgs lost to the hated Gators of Florida.

Our Hawks are mediocre....3 wins...3 losses.

Wakey...Wakey

Here is what the New York Post...thinks about Janay....standing by her man:

 

First Photo of Ray and Janay Rice After Baltimore Ravens Terminated His Contract

Ray and Janay Rice
A quick thinking paparazzi apparently ordered flowers to be delivered to the Baltimore home of former NFL player Ray Rice on Tuesday. The photog snapped shots of the embattled couple as they answered the door to accept the flowers.
The exclusive photos were published in today’s NY Post.

Janay Rice, 26, came to the door looking disheveled and fretful, while Ray Rice, 27, looked agitated and appeared to be yelling at the delivery men.
In a social media post on Monday, Janay blamed the media and public opinion for her husband’s problems.
Ray Rice was terminated by the Baltimore Ravens after shocking video footage surfaced of him knocking out his wife in the elevator at a now shuttered Atlantic City casino. Video footage released earlier by gossip tabloid TMZ showed Rice dragging his unconscious wife out of the elevator.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell claims he never saw the new video footage before suspending Rice for just 2 games. But a NJ cop told ESPN he sent the new video footage to a NFL executive in April.
In related news, champion boxer and convicted wife beater Floyd Mayweather defended Ray Rice, saying the NFL should have honored Rice’s 2-game suspension.
