OK, One More...

Forgot to mention this yesterday, but wanted to post it:

I have a ton of emails I've gotten from readers over the past few weeks but life has just been a bit too hectic to reply to many of them. I do promise to get to them at some point in the next week though, and I'm extremely appreciative of all of you who took the time to write.

Also, if you want to stay in touch down the road, my email account will likely be shut down soon, but you can reach me now at Feel free to shoot me a message any time. I'll probably be looking for mailbag material soon!

And lastly, among the many great comments to yesterday's post, this was one of my favorites. I figured it was worth sharing.

Braves could = Gators, but that makes more sense if we're talking about the Mets rather than the Phillies. We owned the Mets (esp. Chipper) for years and years. They truly hate us with a passion.

Phillies fans respect and fear us, but we never totally kicked their ass for years (remember 1993, anyone?).

So I agree that Braves = Tide. A tough game on the schedule and you hate 'em when they're good, but you also fear them.

Here's another:

Scrapple = Boiled Peanuts
(only natives would even try 'em, much less love 'em)

Dave good luck to you and your bride in Philly. Hope you scored on some tasty waves in Bali. Now I need to figure out how I'm going to get my daily GA football fix... This just severely complicates my life now. We'll be drinking an extra beer in your honor at the beach tonight as a DGD. Hopefully your replacement will spell some good luck to our season and we go on a NC run! -Aloha and malama pono
