STRIKE OUT LEUKEMIA AND LYMPHOMA RADIOTHON
We will be LIVE all day from 6am to 7pm at the PGA Tour Superstore in Roswell on Friday, 2/19.
Your generosity is amazing every year and we keep breaking records. I am thrilled to get to hang with all of the 680 hosts on this very upbeat day.
Please check out our auction items and get involved with the cause on social media.
I hope to set another record on Friday!
FALCONS PSL SALES
I must say that I am floored with the reaction to PSL sales from Falcons fans. One thing is clear, averaging 6 wins over the past three seasons did not hamper the initital efforts to fill the new stadium. That shocks me.
If I don't like a restaurant, I won't go back. If I think a company is not interested in delivering me the best product possible, I go somewhere else. The reactions we hear each week on the Falcons led me to expect that the sales would not be brisk. I'm not knocking anyone else for spending their money as they see fit. I do wonder if you are a frustrated fan why you would so quickly jump aboard with the product in such disarray.
This Falcons off-season is mission critical. We all know the definition of insanity. The Falcons are hoping to buck that trend.
HANK AARON HELD HOSTAGE
A petty dispute over a statue of Hank Aaron was clearly one sided this past week as the Braves brass tried to diffuse controversey. The city officials with egg on their face over the Braves move to Cobb decided to pull a power play over the statue. Instead of getting into a war of words the Braves classily said they would honor the wishes of Hank Aaron. It showed immediately the political nature of the motives of the city leaders.
Mayor Reed and his cronies tried to humiliate the Braves. The ploy failed. Now we will see just how much they plan on honoring Hank Aaron as the statue will stay behind. Considering that the city officials have ignored that community for 50 years, my fear is that Hank will be hanging with nobody for eternity.
BRAVES OVER/UNDER AT 65 WINS
If I had seen this number posted before I left Vegas on Super Bowl weekend, I would have jumped on the OVER. Do I expect that the Braves are going to be contenders? No. Do I expect them to be improved slightly over last season? Yes. The question for the year will be if they can get the fans of Atlanta to be excited about the on field product in 2017 and not just the new stadium.
HOW CAN WE NOT GET QUALITY BBALL IN GEORGIA?
Atlanta is ranked as no worst than the third best metro area for basketball prospects in America and we can't get any of the top programs in contention for league titles. That makes no sense. The expectations of football cast a shadow over these basketball programs which is unacceptable considering other football powers can still field competitive hoops teams. Until the fans care, nothing will change!
