    Great pic if you and Mr. Rhodes at the yard. John and I played college golf and grew up in the same hood.

    Future warning when playing golf with Mr. Rhodes – He has a hole in his front pocket and he will slide a ball down his pant leg and that ball you were sure went over the fence, magically appears in bounds and Bam, Johnny makes birdie from certain death. He is also the best coin flipper I have ever seen. He will flip his mark 5′ closer to the hole by distracting you with a joke etc, next thing you know, Bam Rhodes drops another birdie. We used to call him the human rain delay and our opponents were scared to death of him because they didn’t know what to make of his antics. Seriously, he is a great friend and a great guy and I hope he has shared some of the epic tales of our JUCO golf experiences. You wouldn’t think a redneck golf team from Frederick, Md would have much to talk about but those were 2 of the best years of my life and most of it was the entertainment on and off the course provided by Mr. Rhodes.

    I am familiar with your ALE theory because I am an avid listener and fan of yours. I am glad that you stuck around and got to experience Camden Yards blowing up. We were there the night before and it was electric and it’s hard to find that atmosphere in baseball anywhere else. Juxtaposed next to the Detroit fan base that looked like they were strung out on meth and couldn’t muster the energy, or the coordination to bring their hands together. T Hunter was practically begging for something with 2 outs and 2 strikes by mimicking the towel wave and he got nothing but zombie stares in return. It literally looked like people were falling asleep in their seats before the first double, and even then, it was far from an impressive response.

    I am glad to see you made your way to the yard and stuck it out and got to see Camden Yards go ape shit. Nice pic of you two and nice to see all of Rhodes in a photo.

    I am rooting hard for a Nats rally and a Parkway series because this success deprived area might just lose it’s mind. Thanks for sharing and I will keep on listening to your great show.

    Check Rhodes pockets and watch for that Copperfield like coin movement before your next $10 Nassau.

    My Mom and Dad stuck out the whole Nats game. It was shocking to me because he usually is a proponent of A.L.E. , then again it’s usually FedEx when the Skins are getting smacked around.

    Step-team Bio-team illustration is spot on. That’s the same way I feel about the Redskins and Ravens. Growing up in Glen Burnie, the Colts were my team until Robert effing Irsay ripped our hearts and our team out in the middle of the night. Our “dad” literally went out for ciggies in the night and never came back. In stepped the Joe Gibbs-led Redskins to be my step-team. 8 years of consistent greatness, playoff appearances, and Super Bowl wins in 87 and 92, but I never quite gave the Skins my heart. Then in 96, Dad came back (albeit dressed in different clothes) and I returned to my first love. But I always root for the Skins to win, unless they are playing the Ravens. I especially root for them to beat Dallas, who everyone loves to hate.
