It's a long time til' season's start. So before then, we might share some facts and interesting, hopefullylol, things to post about. The 2006/2007 schedule should be out soon and maybe free agency won't be pushed back if the league and the union find some common ground will all those billions to deal with. In the meantime,...something to sink teeth into!
It's Braves baseball time! Some of you older Braves fans might remember when they appeared in the World Series against the Minnesota Twins(another Minn/ATL battle!), in 1991 was it? If anyone recalls,...before that "worst to first" season, the Braves used their #1 pick on a pitcher,...the name, Ted Van Poppel. Up until 1991, the Braves were the absolute dregs of MLB,...and Poppel said, NOPE! He declined the offer and was traded to the Athletics if memory serves. Poppel started some games but never made it to the World Series,...something the Braves did quite a few times since 1991. Moral? Careful what you wish,...and never fall prey to stereotyping!;)
Item number TWO! Oh my gawd, I can almost hear ya'll say,...there's gonna be more than #2!:D
I'd like to endorse a sports journalist,...AAARRRGGHHH!!! I'm crazy huh? lol There is this new guy out there under the radar, and above it too. His name is Nunyo Demasio, a young guy that has this master of the English language unparalleled. He uses unusual and rarely used words in the language that makes the reader feel he's/she's been splashed with champagne,...is the only way I can describe it. And as all masters of thought do,...ya can unnerstand the guy even with the $2 words!
There are two more items that will be posted later. You guys are welcome to add to this off topic fun in new threads or replies, and we welcome it!
Looking at Pro Bowl players on the Falcons roster,...we're gonna be back people, with a venageance this season. And some awesome numbers when a team has this old man,...Gibbs is it?,...coaching or supervising a team's offensive line!:)
