Yeah, I got nothin. I’m pretty crazy with the work and also it’s so hot outside I can barely be bothered to move much less think (unless I’m being paid for it). So, I give you the following email from the coach regarding our tournament next weekend (the perfect statement to illustrate why I love people from Louisiana specifically and from the South generally. For the same reason Miss Mellie married Ashley Wilkes — we understand each other).
I got an e-mail from the LSU coach specifically asking if they could set up shop next to us at the tournament. I told them hell yes they could. It’s going to be epic.
Also, an old and dear newsman friend and I are reminiscing the Atlanta punk scene of the 1980s. I was too young to enjoy it at the time but I remember that it was happening because the skate rats in the hood started listening to songs like the following in the street while practicing their ollies.
Don’t run over your neighbor this weekend.
