Schedule update

Hey everyone. Good morning. I will be heading to Auburn in a bit for the team's sixth spring practice. Reporters are not permitted inside the practice gates this time, but we'll be talking with people afterward.

Please come back and see what is said.

Also, the annual Auburn-Alabama baseball series begins tonight. This first game will be televised live by CSS ... if you're lucky enough to have it. I am no. Saturday and Sunday's game will not be televised.

Good morning Beat Hack Tate. I'll definitely return to hear what they're talking about. Thanks so much for providing all the salient info!

Short story time:

So I'm laying sod in my yard yesterday. Everything went great. I get in the shower and notice a portion of my left leg is numb. I get anxious. I call the REAL Dr. HABOTN, my radiologist father, and ask him if I need to go to the clinic.

He laughs for a second and says: "I guess you've never irritated a disk before. You'll be fine by this time tomorrow night."

Sure enough, I wake up today with about 75% feeling in that leg.

Parents = awesome.

7:54 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

He said this is "somewhat common." I've never heard of such a thing. I hear disk and I think surgery.

Glad there are less serious disk issues.

Just as a heads-up: I will not be attending Auburn's scrimmage on Saturday. I am taking a church-related trip and helping with the Easter vigil Mass.

I apologize ahead of time.

8:08 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

No apology necessary, HNP Tate. Please enjoy your weekend.

And remember, yard work is bad for your health. Same thing happened to me about 8 years ago from raking.

8:12 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I hate yardwork. I haven't had to mow yet, but it's looking like it's going to need it within the I have to buy a new weedeater.

Anyway, will there be any Hatin' w/Jay G on the radio or does that not happen anymore?

never apologize for putting the Lord in front of work/peeps. do what you do JG.

glad your leg is recovering today. as a person who has herniated a disc in the C6-C7 region of my spine i have done quite well without surgery. of course, i work out a lot to strengthen those muscles around it so that helps. you'll be golden.

Brother Jet can probably provide more specifics, but I believe I read this in Genesis...

"and spine surgery begat spine surgery."

I'm not letting anyone near my spine unless i'm in danger of permanent paralysis.

He's doing ok. The first few days after surgery he was doing really well, but now the chemo seems to be kicking in and he's energy level is way down. We took him and mom out to eat last night and he was in good spirits.

Thanks for asking.

I had shoulder pain that was finally diagnosed as a herniated disk in my neck. Now that I know what to do (crt screen below eye level and never "crane" my neck) no more problems.

Speaking of embarrassing news stories, my congressman made me proud by warning a Navy Admiral at a hearing that if we keep sending people to Guam it could capsize. He had the island's dimensions and was fully prepared for his assertion. I'm not kidding. It's on utube.

I just watched that video and it was painful. I'm certainly glad that Cynthia McKinney no longer has the words "Georgia Representative" attached to her name, but the national embarrassment from this office continues, just in less sensational fashion.

Bellefay, Jay G and his homies doesn't get it because they're too cool for cable and have dishes. THT's not in Alabama, and others have crappy cable companies other than Comcast or Charter.

Blogger Bellefay1 said...


lol @ dish people. I do remember though when I was in college, Auburn had no competition so we got stuck with like 40 bucks for cheapo cable while the people in Montgomery could get bundle deals that were cheaper then standard cable in Auburn. Auburn student cable used to have all these odd international channels that would show nudity or just weird programming. There was this kind of hidden camera show that was rather disturbing. A guy would act like he tripped on ledge and was dropping baby and people would dive for it. When they saw it was just a doll, they would laugh.

Anyway, I love my comcast in Atlanta. Super fast inernet and a ton of HD.

11:35 AM  
Blogger wellsAU said...

Bellefay, it's still like that. We pay $135 a month for cable with a few HD channels, and not much selection. Its absolutely ridiculous. 3 of us split it, which helps a little, but my parents have said they don't pay anything near this much.

The campus cable has at least 2 channels in all of the following languages: Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, and French.

11:44 AM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

Verizon FIOS if you can get it is the best. My $110/month package includes internet, 2 boxes (1 a DVR) and around 120 HD channels and no signal drops.

Since aides prepare a lot of material for politicians, I'm wondering about the aide's qualifications. Maybe the aide joked about the island tipping over. In any case, I'm wondering how anyone could not know better.

Jay Leno had 3 "celebs" on his show last night answering simple, recent, history questions in a game show format. K-Fed, some chick and Bobby Brown were the "celebs". Bobby Brown won, but all 3 were just plain ignorant. KFed ...(Brittany's Baby's Daddy) was the worst and is probably not even qualified to work at McDonalds.

12:03 PM  
Blogger Bellefay1 said...

Comcast in Atlanta. Super fast internet and two HD boxes is around 90. My cable signal was messing up on a Saturday and I thought I was going to miss the NFL games on Sunday. Comcast sent out a tech at 10 on a Sunday morning, changed out my box and gave me one with a bigger DVR.

That's why Jay Leno isn't funny. He gets laughs by finding stuipid people and showing everyone that they're stupid. Jaywalking..."Hey! Look! There's stupid people on the streets of LA." Headlines..."everyone send me stuff and i'll read it on air.

Letterman was only worth watching when Warren Zevon was the show.

An $80 mil package for Coco and his crew is pretty substantial.

Coco won the battle ...and the war with NBC. If he had held out for more cash than he got, no other network would touch him in the future.

hoopie- if you don't like celebrities for their political views you wouldn't watch any tv's or movies. Letterman is funny

Actually, the more I think about it. Leno asks questions and lets folks prove their stupidity.

Letterman adopts an understated, but nevertheless arrogant, elitest, biased humor designed to convince folks that one political viewpoint is stoopid. then
Letterman does the self-depreciating humor as a coverup. He's like a Bill Maher lite.

When he first started he was really awkward and hardly knew what was going on, but I like Jimmy Fallon on late night now. The Roots have a solid music backup for him, although I don't get why there's 12+ of them in the band...

Jimmy Kimmel has grown on me too. This skit was particularly funny.

12:34 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

H ..I'm not into celeb worship and find it quite easy to fill any of my personal media entertainment requirements from celebs that keep their politics personal.

America has a lot of stupid people that actually think celebs know what they are talking about and gravitate towards their urgings. The media constantly puts the microphone in the celebs faces for comment. When the media starts giving equal microphone time for the average person and puts those comments in the national media, I'll reconsider my position. Until then, it's my(and most of my friends) way to try and balance the scales.

Gotta go spend money at an attorney. Later.
