Hammerin' Hank goes to bat for Seahawks' Sherman

@Heisenberg: OK hot shot. I'm gonna make one more point and I'm out of this stupidity. If you're referring to me being jealous or not accomplishing anything in life, I could care less about the dude and you obviously don't know me or my many accomplishments.

If you take away his one line "I'm the best corner in the game" and replace that with "We won! I was able to make a huge play. We kept fighting and we won!" or something like that, Sherman could have acted the same way and we wouldn't be exchanging comments. It was his arrogance not his race, so get over that.

Go Broncos for no other reason than I hate Pete Carroll.

@heyjoez: Sure I've acted like an idiot many times, especially when all boozed up and sloppy but never on national TV and I'm not a public figure that gets paid millions of dollars to represent my employer. Besides, he's "the best corner in the game", an NFL tough guy. He'll get over the criticism. "Don't you ever talk about me", he said. Uh Oh. Seems we couldn't resist.

I've heard the arguments in support of Sherman and I don't care who does or what their reasoning is, he acted like a complete idiot adrenaline fueled or not.

"Medical pot". That's like saying "medical alcohol" during prohibition. Just legalize the plant altogether and get on with it.

@nowheregirl: Smile I guess I was trying to say that a lot of these thugs didn't have somebody to hug them, care for them and nurture them as young kids. Not saying I feel sorry for them. You have to take responsibility for your actions but I'd bet this dude and many like him didn't have much love growing up so he wound up hard, mean and just plain sorry. I think about that sometimes when I'm tucking my son in a clean, warm bed at night with food in his belly. You know what I'm saying? OK. I'm rambling..........I'll shut up now. Bye.

I guess eventually once all the businesses are gone from the area, Clarke County will have a new canvas for which to redesign the road "system" there. It's just dismal and nobody in their right mind wants to drive on that side of town. If you can get in Best Buy you're extremely lucky to get out. Same goes for most of the businesses there.

I don't know what makes someone so sorry and violent but I assume most of it has to do with upbringing and some good ole stupid thrown in for good measure. Good thing is it doesn't seem probable that Knox-y will ever get back out among the rest of us. Bad thing is he and others like him will continue to mooch off of society by way of expenses incurred while in his new crib. And as we know, there will always be others to follow the same path from birth to streets to crime to prison.

I'm gonna go home and hug my kid and tell him I love him. Eat some ice cream with him and watch Sesame Street or something.

Blog: UGA wins with Pruitt hire before he even meets the press

Good thing is that most of the current defensive players are young so Pruitt has more than one season to work with most of the same group. Additionally, I'm sure there are some great high school defensive prospects that will follow him to UGA.

Georgia opens 2-0 in SEC with win over 'Bama

Hopefully, these last two wins will instill some confidence in the team that they can win big games. When they play defense and rebound strongly like they have been doing it pays off. Go Dawgs!

Grantham leaving Georgia for Louisville

Apparently, I'm one of few NON haters. I think the guy did his best but it's obvious that the time has come to try somebody else. Good luck, coach Grantham.

The lesson is that stupid people are everywhere and we are surrounded everyday.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
