Atlanta Braves are BACK!

Dear Lord,

We thank you for your mercies. Please bestow your favor on the following gentlemen of the Atlanta Braves over the next 161 games, specifically those against other teams in the National League East.

May they stretch well in warmups, as to help avoid injury.

May they swing well, as to drive in many runs – specifically more runs than their opponents.

May they throw many strikes, as to get many opposing batters out, and to save fatigue.

May they catch many balls, as to prevent the opposition from scoring and/or driving in runs.

May they assume a quick, comfortable lead, as to prevent stress as a team, and to save my fingernails from being bitten down to the nub.

We pray these in Your holy name,

Who’s YOUR favorite Brave?

AHH – Belmont Was So Close!

MASSIVE props to may Alma Matter, Belmont University, for giving legendary Duke a heart attack in the NCAA Basketball tournament.

Check out this story from CBS Sports:

WASHINGTON — Mighty, mighty Duke let teeny, tiny Belmont play with the big boys. And, for stretches, get the better of them.

No. 2-seeded Duke actually trailed in the final 15 seconds before barely avoiding the monumental upset, using every last one of Gerald Henderson’s 21 points to edge No. 15 Belmont 71-70 in the first round of the West Regional on Thursday night.

While Belmont couldn’t quite pull off the stunner, it was surprising enough how close this game was. In a matchup between a school with three NCAA titles — that would be Duke, of course — and another that never has won a game in the tournament, it was Henderson’s driving basket with 11.9 seconds left that erased Belmont’s final lead.

After ACC Defensive Player of the Year DeMarcus Nelson stole the ensuing inbounds pass, he was fouled, but he missed at the line. Belmont got the rebound, and one final chance to make history, with 2.2 seconds left. The Bruins’ leading scorer, Justin Hare, got a good look at the basket from about 35 feet away, but his shot clanged off the iron. He winced, and Duke celebrated as though it had won far more than an opening-round game – something it actually failed to do a year ago.

Duke (28-5) advanced this time to face Arizona or West Virginia on Saturday.

And Belmont (25-9) can go home with heads held high.


Way to go, boys! We’re proud, even if most alumni are starving musicians…

Who are YOU proud of?


Brett Favre playing Hockey, er, Football…

If you weren’t glued to your TV late this afternoon, you owe it to yourself to check out the highlights of the NFC Divisional Playoff game between the Seattle Seahawks at the Green Bay Packers.

By half-time, the field looked more like an ice rink than a football field, and in the second half, the whole thing was under 2 inches of snow.

But somehow, these two teams accumulated a total of 62 points!! Including Favre’s 3 touchdowns. Very cool game to watch. Or should I say, very good game to DVR until after we put the kids to bed….


How long would YOU last in that weather?
