Open thread, 8/24, Braves vs. Cris Carpenters
Not THAT Chris Carpenter, but the one who punted for UGA in the 1980s then pitched for the Cards. Carpenter, minus the “h”, graduated from the same high school I attended, and not long after I graduated I saw him charge $5 for his autograph. In his hometown. It’s one thing for a punter and middle reliever to charge money for his signature, quite another to do it in the place where you were born.
Pointless anecdote, but I’d rather not talk about the current state of the Braves. It’s too depressing.
