Ah yes, the infamous Jim Palmer jockey ad.

Last preseason game tonight! Though I-85 is shut down.

Bird lets one fly. I think Sanchez & Bird are going to be fun to watch this year.

Ok, in Pineda starts go to the pen in the third.

"Take Away Their Uniforms And Who Are They?"

Well, anyone would know Pete Rose when they saw him; even as a grown man, he always looked like an eight year old brat. And what blind person couldn't pick Ron Burgundy from that lineup...

[0] Thanks Alex. Fantastic.
[4] Ha! Perfect description of Rose.

The Sports Illustrated ads are sweet. Ted Williams ad is fantastic copy.

Nike? No headline. Shame on you. Pompous fucks. That's Advertising 101, boyee. I wanted to read, but there was nothing to bring me in.

"If you don't get home, you don't score"? Hmmm. Obviously the copywriter was never married.

rbj - the 85 stretch is very close to my house. I'm there every single day and was supposed to be there at that time. It's really brutal. My commute is going to affected for *months*...

My old studio is right where it happened. I could've been trapped!

[6] Glad to hear you're safe. And if the worst that happened to you is a sucky commute, just be glad it wasn't worse.
