Braves 4, Beelzebub 5

Like Kris Kristofferson said “Monday morning, coming down.” Or maybe it was the Bangles: “Just another manic Monday.” Maybe because it was because it was the moon’s day what we have experienced lunacy. Who is this alien being impersonating Freddie Freeman and how did that being shape shift so effectively? Did Matt Joyce decide he … Continue reading “Braves 4, Beelzebub 5”

The sound of Philadelphia (Crashing): Braves 7, Cheesesteaks 2

Above is a favorite of mine of the genre “TSOP.” Let it be your musical and practical theme for last night. The Atlanta Braves have burned the mother up, all 100 stories, all 90 wins. Philadelphia was the wealthiest, most educated, and largest city in the new United States. The first thing that drove New … Continue reading “The sound of Philadelphia (Crashing): Braves 7, Cheesesteaks 2”

Braves 6, Northern Invaders 3

When I was a boy, in most decent sized towns in the South you had a Confederate memorial with a statue of a soldier. Usually it was an archetype of the regular soldier, standing with his rifle. Usually it was not some general on horseback. Also, one typical thing, was that the soldier was facing … Continue reading “Braves 6, Northern Invaders 3”

Whoever the Crap’s Tube it is: Braves 1, The Herbally Intoxicated 3

Somebody came up with the idea for the Braves to play a game on something called “You Tube TV.” Yes, I am yelling for kids to get off of my lawn. This game started during my work day, but then I can finish this off in the evening instead of the next morning. Major League … Continue reading “Whoever the Crap’s Tube it is: Braves 1, The Herbally Intoxicated 3”

In the land of hanging Chads: Braves 3, Annoying Regional Insects 6

Thanks to the marvel that is ESPN National Game for Monday, I was able to participate in watching a good bit of this debacle. I didn’t see the first Nationals run score because I was outside removing a shutter for my wife who wants to take it to the paint store and let them put … Continue reading “In the land of hanging Chads: Braves 3, Annoying Regional Insects 6”

Double or nothing: Braves 4, Old Mule Hockey 2

There certainly hasn’t been a Post All-Star Break swoon for these Braves. Maybe they are inspired by the nice people and lovely weather. But even though there have been some nice people, the Braves are keeping their foots on the throats of those nice people’s beloved baseball teams. Where do I begin, this sweet love … Continue reading “Double or nothing: Braves 4, Old Mule Hockey 2”

Alas, poor Yorick, we whooped you well: Braves 12, IWOTM 3

The Viking leader Yorick had a town named after him. That would be York, in northeastern England. Then, after the British stole New Amsterdam from the Dutch, who swindled the native population (or maybe not. Maybe the Native Americans knew they didn’t want to have anything to do with that place), the British named the … Continue reading “Alas, poor Yorick, we whooped you well: Braves 12, IWOTM 3”

Rodney’s Report: Braves 13, Pirates 7

I went to a baseball game and a football game broke out. What’s with this Gausman? He’s better than my grandmother, but she’s 95. And Josh Donaldson? You like to run your trap, don’t you? Hey, but that getting Muskrat tossed, man that was a thing of beauty. Ronald Acuna, Jr., there’s nothing “junior” about … Continue reading “Rodney’s Report: Braves 13, Pirates 7”
