Remember when I said I was worried about Frenchy’s dog? Well, apparently the dog is seeing a pet therapist once a week. I’m tempted to think that someone has got to be joking or making this up, but no one is funny or creative or DARK enough to invent this stuff about the dogs. I… Continue reading To The Dogs Or Whoever
Newsflash: Frenchy Rented A Movie
What is going on with Frenchy and the AJC? Is he calling them every day and begging to be covered? Yesterday they posted a belated feature on his November honeymoon, and today we get this delightful peek into the world that is Frenchy: Movies Frenchy has watched recently. No, really. I love the Harry Potter… Continue reading Newsflash: Frenchy Rented A Movie
I Might Have Guessed
From an article about Frenchy’s honeymoon on the AJC: (Apparently he played golf with Derrek Lee. Classic.) “And how did Georgia businesses score with the nuptials? Their first night was spent at the Westin Peachtree Plaza, and the couple used Lee Patterson Photography and Lee Epting Catering, with flowers from Kim McKinney of Daffodilâ€™s Design… Continue reading I Might Have Guessed
Historic Quote of the Day
From the Bowman Chronicles, of course. Circa March ’07: Still, Francoeur showed absolutely no sense of jealousy or animosity when he came through the clubhouse doors at Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex on Thursday morning. All seemed normal. As usual, the 23-year-old right fielder was wearing a bright smile and walking alongside McCann. I… Continue reading Historic Quote of the Day
And the Offseason Rolls On . . .
So Andruw ended up in L.A. (and we thought he wrecked havoc here in little old Buckhead . . . just wait!), Cormier was released, and the Braves are building a section behind home plate for the Scrooge McDucks of Atlanta baseball fandom. It’s always nice to have some news in the offseason, and to… Continue reading And the Offseason Rolls On . . .
Another Weird Season Bites the Dust
Jesus, what a game. It was truly the kind of thing only that Lynchian joke of a ballpark in Houston could deliver. Skip made it 100% enjoyable — I barely noticed that the regular starters who hadn’t already boarded the charter sucked on a comical level — and I’m really, really glad I recorded his… Continue reading Another Weird Season Bites the Dust
Preach It, Frenchy
From last night’s AJC wrap: Afterward, 23-year-old Francoeur praised some other, less-established Braves youngsters, including reliever Joey Devine, who got slugger Lance Berkman to fly out with the bases loaded to end the seventh inning. Well, at least somebody has mentioned something in the press about the good work he’s done up here this year.… Continue reading Preach It, Frenchy
Irretrievable playoff race aside, yesterday was perfect. We went to the game, and much like the last game we went to in 2006 (where we also won in extra innings, thanks in large part to the other team’s defensive errors), it was the most fun we’d had at the park this season. FOUR Braves sang… Continue reading Redemption!
Behold The Power of Little Edgar
Yeah, I’m posting this every day until we lose: It could be the power of the Nationals (or lack thereof) that is allowing us to win, but weren’t they on a five game winning streak before they came to Atlanta? Haven’t they been getting more press cred than the Braves all year, for outshining expectations?… Continue reading Behold The Power of Little Edgar
“Matty Being Matty”
No one can celebrate a walk off quite like Frenchy: I actually missed seeing the party at home plate live: I had watched the comeback in the 8th, but had to drive somewhere and was just pulling into the parking lot, listening on the radio, when they pulled it off in the bottom of the… Continue reading “Matty Being Matty”
