    I need a new adjective for this ballteam. How about pukey? Is pukey taken?

    Curt Says:

    As excited as I am right now, I still know we have their ballpark and our bullpen to contend with

    My son had a baseball game tonight so I could only follow on the free At Bat app (which sucks, as a side note) and it was just zeros and zeros and zeros. I get in my car, turn on the radio and Jim Powell is literally in mid-sentence, calling Mac’s about to be grandslam as it’s flying through the air. It was the least stress I had following a game all year.

    All the problems aside, great to get game 1 against the Phils.

    @101 Speaking of adjectives…don’t you feel a “Braves 2012 tribute in the form Of original song by Bub” coming on? That’d be so awesome! Bring it!

    Bubdylan Says:

    My songwriting these days is weak. And my fandom is a touch too cynical for a tribute. Unless Wren fires Fredi, and then I’ll write Frank a tribute that’d make Don McLean blush.

    Good read here, by David Schoenfield, about whether this year’s Braves outfield has a chance to be one of the best of any season: http://espn.go.com/blog/sweetspot/post/_/id/26482/do-braves-have-all-time-great-outfield

    Bubdylan Says:

    Uggla’s in a slump I think.

    I love Andrelton Simmons!

    Walker Says:

    I love burying the Phillies. The tables have turned.

    Jo Bu Says:

    Yep. You don’t hear too much out of those troll Phillies fans on the AJC blogs these days. I love it!

    Steve Says:

    And to come back down 3 – 1 to score 5 unanswered. Extremely satisfying win. And nice for Simmons to show the national audience his glove tonight, too.

    Bubdylan Says:

    These couple of games have helped my feelings a lot.

  13. 113
    Curt Says:

    Bub, I couldn’t say it better. If we go up there and get buried by that team and those pitchers…. Very gratifying, and reassuring.

    Leah Says:

    Just got caught up on Walking Dead season 2. I’m totally freaked out and cannot sleep.

  15. 115
    Steve Says:

    @114 – From the repetitive storylines and the boredom? Sorry, season 2 left me really angry.

  16. 116
    Leah Says:

    I have a couple of episodes left. Thought I saw them all but alas…boredom was not my problem.

    Victorino makes me laugh. Way to go buddy!

    Nate Says:

    @115, for real. They should steal some of Breaking Bad’s writers.

    Leah Says:

    Fantastic at bat by Uggla there.
