This isn't about sports. It's about ugly license plates. According to this story at http://beta.bryancountynews.net/section/49/article/14167/, we're going to get new license plates here in Georgia next year and the design will be one of the three shown in the story.(Click on the link to see what I'm talking about ... ) I vote for No. 3, but only because there are no better options. People actually voted for these designs?What was wrong with the ...

There's been a debate lately over whether Pat Tillman belongs in the NFL Hall of Fame. No debate here. If anyone belongs in pro football's equivalent of Valhalla, it's Tillman, a 2000 Pro Bowler who in 2002 turned down a contract offer from the Cards for $3.6 million over three years to join the military nine months after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. And he didn't get a job in the rear, either. Tillman served ...

Random questions, sports-related and not. - What is it about the weekend that makes people drive like they need to find a restroom in 30 seconds or there's going to be an accident? It becomes a combination of odd, weird, ugly, gnarly, goofy - and occasionally scary - out there on the road. - Why is that drivers on 144 in Richmond Hill will go around you so they can stop in front of you ...

A Tuesday riff Quote of the day "Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese." G.K. Chesterton Link of the day: You've got to check this out. Hilarious. Good clean American fun. http://manbabies.com/popular OK, enough of that. It's almost been too hot to blog, lately. This because there's not A/C in this part of the BCN headquarters in downtown Richmond Hill. . Still, one makes do and drives on. Hope you all ...
I can still remember watching as Houston led North Carolina State with seconds left, can still vividly recall the long airballt from Dereck Whittenbug, then Lorenzo Charles catching the ball aat the basket and dunking it at the buzzer -- then Jim Valvano running around looking for somebody to hug. RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - It's one of the most lasting images from the NCAA basketball tournament. A buzzer-beating two-handed dunk by muscular forward Lorenzo ...
By Jeff Whitten No rhyme, no reason. Just stuff for the Sports Blog at bryancountynews.net: - If one booster club is good, five or six should be better. Or maybe not. There's evidently something of a debate going on in Richmond Hill High School circles over whether to combine booster clubs for various sports into one. Should be interesting. Might even be entertaining. - I don't care whether the NFL plays this fall or the ...
This video is from MLB.com. It shows the Rangers introducing draft picks Kevin Matthews, Zach Cone and Jonathan Bryant on Saturday in Atlanta. I apologize for the delay in getting it up, but I didn't know it existed until today. That's Tuesday.

Never thought I'd say it, but I'm starting to feel sorry for Lebron James. Yes, he's the most physically gifted player in the NBA and makes more in a day than I earn all year. Sure, he's got millions of adoring fans (though I'm not one), so he doesn't need my pity. But for all that, he's probably the most hated athlete in the U.S. Lebron simply can't win. Five reasons I don't like Lebron ...
