Scarred, but smarter.

25 Dec

Merry Christmas

Merry belated Hanukkah, belated Solstice, and merry upcoming Kwanzaa as well.

My Photoshop skills are not what Mac’s were (and in point of fact, I’m using GIMP, not Photoshop), but it seemed fitting to do a holiday-themed photoshop image. This is what I’m sure Fredi wants more than anything this year.

    Was it his wife? What a scumbag.

    Doesnt really matter, any guy that hits a woman is a piece of crap.

    Andruw was coached well by Cox.

    Alex Remington (Another Alex R.) Says:

    Andruw has not always been a gentleman toward women, going back to his first callup.

    Bobby Cox hit his wife, too, and people in Atlanta didn’t raise much of a fuss. It seems that they worked it out and she forgave him, but we may never totally know.

    All I’m saying is, as Braves fans we need to be consistent, and not just slag the guys who leave.

    ..ATLANTA – Police say the wife of former Atlanta Braves star Andruw Jones accused him of dragging her down a staircase, grabbing her neck and saying he wanted to kill her.

    A police report obtained by The Associated Press says the fight happened around 1:30 a.m. on Christmas Day, after Nicole Jones asked her husband to help her prepare their home for Christmas morning.

    Andruw Jones was free on bond after being arrested in Duluth on a battery charge, according to Gwinnett County Jail records. It wasn’t known Wednesday whether he has an attorney.

    Nicole Jones told officers she tried to escape upstairs, but her husband grabbed her by the ankle and dragged her downstairs, got on top of her and said, “I want to kill you,” according to the report.

    Cox had the good fortune of the internet not really being much of a thing in 1995 — but, given that he had to call a press conference to apologize, I’d say there was a good bit of fuss.

    Between this and Chipper’s never-ending adolescence regarding his taste in women, it’s helpful to remember the wisdom of compartmentalizing one’s hero-worship….

    Matt Diaz is a Yankee…minor leaguer.

    Internet question: What’s you alls internet speed? Mine is 4mbps and that’s said to be the best available in the area. S L O W!

    Bethany Says:

    20 mbps for me.

    Bethany and Ryan, cable or FiOS?

    oldtimer? Says:

    42 mps on Verizon Fios.
    I pay for the 35/35 but it always clocks higher then that.

    DSL…only thing available here. Sucks. No AT&T, Verizon, etc…I’m stuck with the wonderfully slow Century Link.

    Yikes… 30Mbps down(5Mbps up) here with Cox Cable. Their cable tv service is overpriced, but the internet is consistently fast.

    Btw, I finally got my hands on some of your scorebooks, Bethany. My girlfriend’s parents picked up a couple of them for me as a Christmas present.. Very, very cool. I can’t wait to put them to use in Atlanta next year.

    18.5 mbps this evening… Cablevision’s Optimum Online

    Bethany Says:

    @26 Cable for me! It’s too expensive but I do too much work online to make due with a slower speed.

    John, I’m so glad to hear you got some scorebooks! I hope they serve you well.

    18 Mbps down, 1 up costs 50 bucks a month in Canuckistan.

    csg Says:

    Im on DSL with Windstream and I think at 10Mbps. However, during the day its super quick and at night when everyone is at home it sometimes runs at the speed of dialup. Ive called and they keep telling us that they need to come add more broadband, but that hasnt been done yet.
