"Nats"....Are Very ...Irritating

We all hate gnats.....now we hate "Nats".

"Nats"...short for the baseball Washington Nationals....are a pain in our rear end.

Our beloved Atlanta Braves can't seem to beat these guys.   The Bravos are now 6 games behind them thanks to last nights 13 inning ordeal.

From the Athens Banner-Herald:

Tracy's 13th-inning single lifts Nationals over Braves

WASHINGTON - Chad Tracy singled in the 13th inning to score Danny Espinosa and lift the Washington Nationals to a 5-4 win over the Atlanta Braves on Monday night.

Love...Divorce....and ...Boxing?

Hey...it is .....what it is...


Evander Holyfield
Finally KOs Divorce

Evander Holyfield
is ready to get back in the ring ... the singles ring ... because the boxing champ just finalized his divorce -- TWO YEARS after it was originally filed.

If you recall ... Candi Holyfield pulled the plug on the marriage back in June 2010. That same year, she attempted to obtain a protective order against the boxer, claiming he hit her in the head, face and back ... an attempt she later dropped.

All that's behind them now... the divorce was finalized in Georgia Superior Court last month. Evander and Candi were able to come to a settlement agreement on issues of child support, custody, alimony and property division.

It's unclear who got what, but there's definitely a lot less to divvy up ... Evander's $14 million GA mansion was just foreclosed on earlier this year and Candi filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy back in May.

So ... eHarmony?

Serena ...Hanging out...NBA Style

It is ...what it is:

Here's Serena Williams Hanging Out With The USA Basketball Team At McDonald's

Serena Williams won her first ever gold medal on August 4th. The Olympics, however, don't end until August 12th.
So, what's an American athlete to do in foggy Londontown when she's done winning gold medals? Hang out with Team USA at a McDonald's of course.


A few things to note about this photo:
  • Andre Iguodala cares more about his McDonald's food than this photo-op with Serena Williams
  • The rest of Team USA are eating tiny cups of oatmeal
  • LeBron James still rocks a Yankees cap
  • Kevin Durant wearing a hood over a hat while sipping on a tiny glass of orange juice
Serena Williams posted this photo on real-time photo and video sharing app Mobli, which she just so happens to be an investor in.
Here's Serena with Kobe Bryant (who is really enjoying these Olympics):

Tyson Chandler is really tall:




The "Dwightmare" is Finally Over

Well....let's just hope it is.    We used to be big fans of Mr. Howard.  But lately we have grown tired of him and his antics.

So it seems "Superman"....is headed for Hollywood.

He'll either be a star....or a bust.

Our bet is he'll be a big...bust.

An Aruba... Tragedy

For all of us older than 30 years of age...We remember Dan Roundfield.

For he was a decent man.   A professional basketball player from Central Michigan.  

But he was so much more than that.    He played the game the way it should be played.   He played in the "Cocaine Age" of the Association... but he kept his nose clean.

You never read or heard anything indecent regarding Dan.   He was just ....well just Dan.

A ballplayer who was never caught up in the NBA hype machine.

Dan Roundfield......we will miss you.   Our prayers are with your family.

From the AJC:

Atlanta Hawks: Former Hawks All-Star Dan Roundfield drowns in Aruba

Dan Roundfield played six seasons for the Hawks - from 1978-79 to 1983-84. He was named to All-Star teams in 1980, '81 and '82 and was second-team All-NBA in 1979-80. (AP)
Dan Roundfield played six seasons for the Hawks - from 1978-79 to 1983-84. He was named to All-Star teams in 1980, '81 and '82 and was second-team All-NBA in 1979-80. (AP)

Former Hawks All-Star Dan Roundfield drowned yesterday off the coast of Aruba.
According to reports, Roundfield’s wife became distressed while swimming off of Baby Beach and Roundfield tried to assist her. The Aruba Herald reported that witnesses saw the woman return to shore but that Roundfield was taken out to sea. Authorities found Roundfield’s body under some rocks, the Herald reported.

A police spokesman in Aruba told the Associated Press that Roundfield and his wife went beyond a protected reef area and got caught up in rough waters. The couple were vacationing at the Renaissance Resort.
“It’s a real tragedy,” the spokesman, John Larmonie, told the AP. “He drowned saving his wife.”

Roundfield’s sister-in-law, Julia Roundfield, also confirmed his death to the AP.

“He was a real sweet guy,” Julia Roundfield told the AP. “He really was a sweetheart.”
Roundfield’s survivors include his wife, Bernie, sons Corey and Christopher, and their grandchildren.

Roundfield, 59, played six seasons for the Hawks from 1978-79 to 1983-84. He was named to All-Star teams in 1980, ‘81 and ‘82 and was second-team All-NBA in 1979-80. Roundfield also was voted to the All-Defensive team in five of his 12 NBA seasons.

In a 2006 interview with the Hawks’ Web site, Roundfield said he worked in marketing for an environmental engineering company. He said his favorite NBA memories included making the playoffs in his first season with the Hawks and playing alongside Hawks legend Dominique Wilkins.

The 1978-79 Hawks, coached by Hubie Brown, earned the franchise’s first playoff series victory since 1969-70 by defeating Houston. The Hawks lost a seven-game series to the Washington Bullets in the conference semifinals; Roundfield, in the Website interview, said the Hawks “probably should have beat” the Bullets.

“Danny was the most honest and upfront person I knew, and I’m very stunned at hearing the news of his death,” Wilkins, now a Hawks vice president, said in a statement released by the team. “Danny’s one of my closest friends and he was a tremendous influence on my NBA career, on and off the court. He taught me how to be a professional and took me under his wing. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, I will truly miss him.”

Danny Solomon, a Hawks ball boy during Roundfield’s final season with the Hawks, said Roundfield still lived in the Atlanta area. Solomon said Roundfield was “the nicest dude in the world,” a personality that contrasted with his physical playing style.

“Strong as an ox,” Solomon said. “Back then, all the centers were very, very strong. That’s back when it was ‘real’ basketball and if you tried to go to the hole against a guy like Roundfield, you would go straight down to the floor. He was known for being really rough. He was a stud down low.”

The Cavaliers selected Roundfield in the second round of the 1975 draft after the Detroit native starred at Central Michigan University. The Hawks signed Roundfield as a free agent before the 1978-79 season. In the summer of 1984 Atlanta traded Roundfield to the Pistons for Cliff Levingston, Antoine Carr and two draft picks.
