    We went 2-1 @knoxvegas. Didn't play LSU this year. I don't understand how baseball scheduling works, but assume we have series against only select SECw teams. Are there no permanent inter-division rivalries ala football?

    He's going back after his major league career is over... supposedly. Uber hardcore patriot that loves his country. Nothing wrong with that. He said he loves the Air-Force.

    You have to be short like Tom Cruise. LOL.

    I used to do projects for folks out at Eglin Air Force Base. Everything from the Flight Test Wing to Precision Strike System Program Office. One year I took my son out there for a preproject "kick off" meeting with folks from the Flight Test Wing that worked a lot with A-10's and they gave my son (probably about 10 years old at the time) a really nice tour. He got to sit in the pilot seat of an F-15 but of course it had the seat they use when doing maintanence and not the ejector seat.

    I asked if I could ever get a ride in one and they said that they don't give civilians rides. Well except that one time for Danny Weurffel.

    I used to be a huge Cowboys fan, he mentioned the high limit to be a pilot in an interview way back when. That's where I remember hearing it.

    Ted Williams was 6' 3" and an extremely good fighter pilot.

    It took 8 inn but Vols finally scored. 5-1 tigers now.

    Skenes has been very impressive with his 123 pitches. First time I've seen him. Hopefully next time I see him it's in a mlb uniform. :cool:
