I like it Bub! I also say show #100 should be special and awesome! Come on boys…you guys don’t have lives outside ABT! And… we (when I say we I mean you) should have ABT t-shirts made so we can advertise. I’d buy one…whose with me! Of course then I will have to watch my language in case a little old church lady desides to join.
CURTIS!!!!!! For shame! I wish I knew Hank but no such luck. I do know a guy named Bub whose hilarious and knows a ton about baseball. Or Will or Tcc (but only if he reveals what Tcc means). Maybe not the 100th episode worthy but it would be a fun interview none the less. I’m great at knowing what I want to happen but no specific ideas how to make it happen.
I’m so sick about the Yankees victory last night. I just knew, deep down, that money-grubbing evil would not prevail and the Yankees would not take it all. And now that Hal has learned the worst lesson possible, I’m just bracing myself for the signing announcements of Holliday and Lackey. Ugh.
Leah – I too want to do something special for the 100th show. Any suggestions? Seriously, what do you have in mind? Anyone on the message board have a close relationship with Hank Aaron? And yes, the shirts/hats/mugs are in the works. I was going to take care of it earlier, but Curt stopped me. It’s totally his fault. I can’t say anymore because of my sense of decorum.
Stevie, haven’t you learned by now that I come up with the problems and you guys find all the solutions? I’ll think on it but I make no promises. I love the idea of a t-shirt, cap (trucker type preferably) and mug!
Tcc, I am a classic country fan, but I haven’t thought about that song since I was a kid. But when I clicked onto ABT and saw there was still “no show,” it made me think of it. So I stuck it in Youtube’s search engine.
That one and “Yesterday’s Wine” were standards in my mom’s station wagon when I was in about the 6th grade.
My cd collection is 90% rock and roll, but I have “essentials” collections for Willie, Waylon, Merle, Tammy, Loretta, etc. Some trivia: a friend of mine told me not long ago that Ray Charles once emphatically pronounced, “George Jones has got soul!” I thought it was an interesting (and true) comment.
Ray Charles was right. I was a R&R guy, drifting towards acoustic stuff when the Rock/Country crossover stuff started happening. “Sweetheart of the Rodeo” “Nashville Skyline Rag” “Flying Burritos Brothers”
From Bowman: There has also been a recent buzz that the Braves may attempt to trade for Pirates closer Matt Capps, who made $2.3 million this past season and has two remaining arbitration-eligible seasons.
Some stats on Capps: 27 saves, 5 blown saves, 5.80 ERA, 10HRs allowed
