A.J. Making Me Feel Better

I enjoy playing golf, but am not very good.  It makes me feel better to see a talented athlete like A.J. Green have some of the same struggles I have on the links:


Joke of the Day

This was sent to me from my accountant. Enjoy!

The year is 2016 and the United States has just elected the first woman as well as the first female Georgian as president.

A few days after the election the president-elect calls her father and says, ‘So, Daddy, I assume you will be coming to my inauguration?’

‘I don’t think so. It’s a 16 hour drive, your mother isn’t as young as she used to be, and my arthritis is acting up again.’

‘Don’t worry about it Daddy, I’ll send Air Force One to pick you up and take you home. A limousine will pick you up at your door.’

‘I don’t know. Everybody will be so fancy. What would your mother wear?’

‘Oh, Daddy’, replies the president-elect, ‘I’ll make sure she has a wonderful gown custom made by the best designer in Washington.’

‘Honey,’ Dad complains, ‘you know I can’t eat those rich foods you and your friends like to eat.’

The President-to-be responds, ‘Don’t worry Daddy. The entire affair is going to be handled by the best caterer in Washington, I’ll ensure your meals are salt free Daddy, I really want you to come.’

So Dad reluctantly agrees, and on January 20, 2017, the first woman and first Georgian is being sworn in as President of the United States. In the front row sits the new president’s Dad and Mom. Dad notices the Supreme Court Justice sitting next to him and leans over and whispers, ‘You see that woman over there with her hand on the Bible, becoming President of the United States.’

The Justice whispers back, ‘Yes I do.’

Daddy says proudly, ‘Her brother played football for the Georgia Bulldogs.’


Well Played

Sometimes you just get had. Such was the case with Jameer Nelson, guard for Orlando Magic, after getting bounced by our Atlanta Hawks in the 1st round of the NBA Playoffs. Well played, Arthur Triche.


‘Nuff Said


Thanks to ML for the cartoon.

God Bless the USA, and God Bless our troops.


In The Dawghouse…

One of my favorite posts I did was when I helped celebrate Festivus by performing the Airing of Grievances.  But why only wait until once a year to let people know they suck?  So, in an attempted new weekly feature, here are the people in my dawghouse for the week:

Osama Bin Laden:  Yeah, kinda got to start off here.  As somone said on Twitter last night, “I am glad this wasn’t the ‘there is a giant asteroid we can’t stop’ speech.”  When I heard that President Obama was going to address the nation last night, the last thing announcement I thought would be made was one announcing bin Laden’s demise.  Great news that Osama has been dealt with.  The epitome of evil for this generation has been defeated.  The War on Terror isn’t over, but it is a great day for America and the rest of the world that has been hurt by his evil.  A message to bin Laden in his watery grave:  I hope those 70 virgins you were promised are dudes-fat dudes. 

-Derek Lowe– You just can’t fix stupid.  A DUI was bad enough, but you were racing your 2011 Porsche?  Idiot.

Tony LaRussa-While we are on the subjects of DUIs, I would like to comment on Tony LaRussa.  I wasn’t around a TV much this weekend, but was around the radio.  I got to listen to the weekend series against the Cardinals.  I got pretty tired of hearing about how smart Tony  LaRussa is.  Yes, he is the only manager to win the World Series in both the AL and NL.  He is an outstanding manager.  BUT…every time he does something wacky, let’s not comment on how smart he is?  Just because he bats the pitcher 8th, makes wierd lineup changes and odd substitutions, it doesn’t mean he is a genius.  Passing out drunk at a traffic light isn’t exactly bright, sir.

Dan Uggla-I loved the decisoin to bring in Dan Uggla.  He is the big time bat that the Braves have deserately missed the last few seasons.  Frank Wren, whom I have been harsh on, did an outstanding job in getting the slugger.  I know it is early, BUT Dan Uggla needs to hit better than .196.
