Could the Atlanta Braves Be Perfected by the Application of the "Sapp Analogy"?

If you were watching the miraculous Colts - Buccaneers game last night, you were treated to an...as much as I hate to admit... amazingly insightful interview with Warren Sapp on the Bucs success under head coach, Jon Gruden...you know, Popeye... The analogy he used in his explanation made perfect sense and, in my opinion, should be applied to our own Atlanta Braves. Sapp spoke of Tony Dungy coming into a dirty unorganized kitchen, where no one wanted to go, let alone eat. Dungy cleaned up the filth, organized the kitchen, put the pots where the pots go and the dishes with the dishes, glasses with the glasses, you get the picture. His recipes brought respectability and slowly people began to eat there again. Down home cooking done well, put lacking just the same. Then Gruden steps in, thinks to himself," Hmmm, what a clean kitchen", Opens the oven and finds a cake, a Dungy cake. Gruden begins to add the finishing touches, the proper icing, the right decorations, and that little extra something that had been missing, the candles. Once the candles were lit, the cake was now complete. Bobby Cox is an accomplished manager, after all he's lead the Braves to twelve straight division titles. He cleaned up the Braves' kitchen, everything's in its place. But his cake... it needs icing.

Irrepressible InBox

One for the Irrational Noise page, but couldn't resist posting it hear as well.

15 Things to do at Wal-Mart while your spouse/shopping partner is taking
their sweet time:


1. Get 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in peoples carts when they
aren't looking

2. Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute intervals

3. Make a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the rest rooms

4. Walk up to an employee and tell him/her in an official tone, 'Code 3' in
housewares......and see what happens

5. Go the Service Desk and ask to put a bag of M&M's on lay away

6. Move a 'CAUTION - WET FLOOR' sign to a carpeted area

7. Set up a tent in the camping department and tell other shoppers you'll
invite them in if they bring pillows from the bedding department

8. When a clerk asks if they can help you, begin to cry and ask 'Why can't
you people just leave me alone?'

9. Look right into the security camera, use it as a mirror and pick your
nose

10. While handling guns in the hunting department, ask the clerk if he knows
where the anti-depressants are

11. Dart around the store suspiciously while loudly humming the theme from
"Mission Impossible"

12. In the auto department, practice your "Madonna look" using different
size funnels

13. Hide in a clothing rack and when people browse through, say "PICK ME!"
"PICK ME!"

14. When an announcement comes over the loud speaker, assume the fetal
position and scream "NO! NO! It's those voices again!!!!"

And last but not least:

15. Go into a fitting room, shut the door and wait a while and then yell
loudly "There is no toilet paper in here"

Scheduling Genius ?!

Looking at Tech's schedule ealier this season, I was appalled to see who our homecoming opponent would be, the Wolfpack of North Carolina State University. Whatever happened to Middle Tennessee State or Furman or some Division I AA schools that major programs usually pick as fodder for the returning alumni. I have to admit though Tech's wreckless scheduling abandon...pun intended... did make this homecoming victory a little sweeter in the end, crushing the Wolfpack's hopes of returning to the Top 25 and Philip Rivers' Heisman hopes...well, maybe not, Rivers was 31-of-46 for 344 yards and two touchdowns, though one was meaningless as it came with only six seconds left in the game...


Six ACC games and the much anticipated victory over UGA to go, then look out Peach Bowl, here we come...

Sniff,Sniff... ShareBlogs is Dead

I did it. I killed it. I didn't mean to. All I wanted to do was have a little fun, but I always carry it too far. Greed and power are cruel mistresses. Joe's ideals were pure. Mine, profit-driven. Initially, I saw the community for what it should have been, before the evil twins took hold of my psyche, and I decided to try and make it what it could be...mmmuuuaaahhahahhaa. Only upon the discovery of my fiendish plot was the site taken down, hopefully to one day be reborn in its intended glory...uncorrupted by these vile hands... I plan to leave the links to my ShareBlog expatriates, in memory of what could have been...

Christ died for our sins. Dare we make his martyrdom meaningless by not committing them?
