Fun fact!

The camera at Gaines/Barnett has video capabilities. The don't mention this obviously because they want you to see the pics, figure you did it and pay. Don't. Challenge it. Ask to see the video (in fact they'll show it whether you want to or not just to prove their case). Some people actually win when the video clearly shows the opposite.

Also, I don't see signs at the CSD/Gaines intersection stating cameras are in use (don't have they to be obvious like the other intersections?). If anyone does get a picture from that "camera" shown in the picture I'd be shocked.

DDay was June 1944 not 45.

Research much?

1- The league office passed us over for Citrus and Outback for two teams we shellacked 68-7, so this isn't a Richt thing.
2- This could well be a top ten bowl game for the season with the Grantham connection (and the fact everyone in GA still hates Petrino)
3- Beats Nebraska for a third year.

Add on: Yes I know there were other shows that showed the same thing but everyone always points to the Cosby Show for being the best example. No offense to the other shows.

Seriously? Pulling a thirty year old show? One of the few (if any) that showed a positive and successful black family and their values?

Yeah, good move TV Land.

Am I to surmise the crash itself is now open?

Can't anyone at the ABH buy a grammar lesson???

Not knowing too much but basing this off the picture, I bet I know exactly what happened:

Bus was coming off the Inner Loop toward North Ave heading downtown. Bus thought it had a merge lane. Oops!! Yield sign. Oops! Car in the lane it wanted. Bang! Crash.

This happens more times than I care to admit. It's safer to drive in the left lane than to risk the speeders blowing off the Yield sign.

[filtered word] and moan all you want, but that stretch of road from Gaines School to the redlight by Firehouse and Keba is another accident waiting to happen. Not a day goes by I see someone heading towards Gaines School sneak around and drive the wrong way down the turning lane to get in line to turn left.

Heck, I've seen school buses run the lights. Wonder if they will get the tickets? School time will be the best time.

Here are the solutions:
1- park a cop there and give out so many tickets, it ends, only to have it come up again and then have another cop sit there. Rinse and repeat.
2- ban left turns into the curb cut to Firehouse from Barnett (and also ban right turns out of it) and have everyone turn left into the road leading to Publix (or right, as the case may be)
3- not do anything and watch the demolition derby commence.

I've a feeling #3 will win.

The Athens ZIP Codes do creep into Oconee. The Epps Bridge area, while in Oconee, is an Athens ZIP Code.

According to the AJC,

On Tuesday, a student found the words “Thursday there will be no more Gainesville High School. And I’m going to bring my gun! And kill everyone!” written on a boys bathroom wall, authorities said.
“The second one said ‘we have explosives and will blow this place up,’” Dyer said.

All told, I'd give an 80. Spelled there correctly, but the starting of a sentence with And (twice!) sorta killed any chance of an A.

Second sentence: No first word capital and no period. I say 75- those are kindergarten errors.

We need to get 842 the next go around. 842 is UGA on the keypad.

Classifications have always been based on enrollment, that's why classifications exist. Given the equal enrollment, I don't know the reason for putting CS and Clarke Central in different classes.

Maybe because GHSA set the bar at 1450? CS can ask to play up if they want. If they're smart, they'll take the dorp and add CC as a non-region game. Lose and it's no harm no foul in region play.

How can Athens petition for an 842 area code? 842 is U-G-A on the key pad. Knoxville got 865, which is V-O-L.

Add on: Apparently Lockheed-Martin runs the area codes or something? Who knew?

When ACOG built the Olympic Stadium, they said they would pay for the conversion and give ATL a state of the art paid for stadium. They kept their word. Debt free since 1997.

So since there was a tragedy in Boston they deserve to win? That is ridiculous. Reminds me of the Super Bowl right after 9/11. The Patriots vs. The Eagles. Two symbols of American freedom so that no matter who wins America wins. What a joke.

First off it was the Patriots and the Rams, dingbat.

Second, I dare you to go to Boston and tell them what you just said.

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having
