I’m an idiot, baby, heeeey!

My back hair innovates, baby -- just like Jerry Glanville

The other day CD overheard sports talk dinosaur Beau Bock wonder on air how anyone could find fault with the greatest sports owner this town has ever had: Arthur Blank.

What about Ted Turner?

“He hired Bobby Cox.” End of argument, at least in Beau’s feeble mind. The logical response would’ve been: “Yes, and he didn’t hire a couple of overmatched assholes like Jim Mora Jr. and Bobby Petrino. Nor did he stick taxpayers with the bill for an unnecessary new stadium.”  (Remember, The Ted was made possible by the ’96 Olympics).

Ted’s a lot of things, but he isn’t a phony. Oh yeah, and he owns the city’s only championship team. Don’t get me wrong — I root for the Falcons, though since Blank took over, my enthusiasm has waned.

  1. That picture could have been worse. A half second later and a topless Rosie O’Donnell could have turned and faced the camera.

  2. Ted Turner has to be one of the 5 most impactful owners in the history of American sports.

  3. Is that Ned Beatty?

  4. you got my valentine pumpin’ with this one, baby! give me the days of jerry, beau, charles dimry and the california trophy – back when atlanta was a real sports town!

    beau has had a 35-year career in atlanta sports talk, and in all those years, he’s never said anything that wasn’t stupid. that’s an amazing track record.

    He also thinks that everyone in the city is fired up about the Hawks. He is unlistenable, during the rare times he’s actually on the air.
