You keep trying to say goodbye to people and nobody wants to leave.
I enjoy listening to you guys when I drive The Kid to school in the morning. Yes, I've gone to the dark side from time to time and listened to the former Z93, but it's like listening to Chicago and Minnesota fans over there. They're not die hard Atlanta fans.
Anyway, I heard your segment on Bryce Harper this morning and disagree with the magnitude of love he received from the 680 team. Despite what he said in his interview, he needs to show it on the field at all times. For example, the incident with Palp was instigated by Harper being called out for not hustling out a fly ball.
Harper might put up some good numbers, but his AF (annoyance factor) is probably higher than any 22-year-old in baseball history... to his fans, teammates, and opponents. He doesn't come close to having the marketable charm that youngsters Mike Trout and Kris Bryant possess.
.Good Wrap Up Question
Which one (or more) of these college coaches will be unemployed/retired next year
a. The Falcon defense gave up 52 total yards in the 2nd half - incredible turnaround after getting gashed for about 300 in the first. That is the advantage of having a defensive mind as your head coach
b. After rewatching the game from start to finish this morning I noticed a few things
- when the Falcons scored, I could actually hear a good bit of cheering coming through my speakers! What in the wild wild world of sports is going on
- I love the way Julio plays the game. There is no "in your face" to opposing players, no dancing, no chest thumping, no "me, me, me". He simply destroys the
DB, pops up and hands the ball to the ref or drops it on the ground.
- Despite one holding penalty I think Jake Matthews is proving to be a pretty good first round pick
- Brandon Weeden does indeed throw a very pretty ball. Much better spiral than Peyton Manning. Too bad he has lost nine in a row and 17 out of his 22 career starts.
