Tonight's game was such a synopsis of the Braves' season.
Baseball's first upheld protest since 1986. But how could they not?
A-K's Alex Wood pitching a shutout of the Pirates. Since he just sacrificed, looks like Braves will use him in bottom of 7th.
Great sign at LLWS: "Want to throw like a girl."

When it was an art, fans complained. Now it's a science and fans complain. Honestly, it was a much better sport when refs had latitude.
Dick Bavetta retiring reminds me of a sad reality: NBA reffing was once an art. Now it's a science. (more)
The contest to win is....
...with celebrity guests! I am giving away ONE foursome to play in the tournament this Friday at Ballantyne Resort Golf Club!
who is up??
Bernie Bickerstaff once told me the only ref he'd totally trust to call same game home or road was Bavetta. That's incredibly high praise.
I get why fans of any sport consider refs a necessary evil. But Dick Bavetta was a smart, fair, brave guy with incredible people skills.
got them doggs feelin right hahaa
Congrats to Dick Bavetta on retiring! Great career. Great guy. Refereed games for both my dad and I in his 39 year run of no missed games!
Bavetta first called an NBA game in December of 1975
Referee Dick Bavetta retiring after 39 NBA seasons.

my main jawn ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ http://t.co/4NjWBCiBa8
Crazy to think that I could be moving into my apartment this week for my senior year of college.
Things that are similar: The fourth quarter of an NFL exhibition and the last 2 games of NBA summer league. Don't be fooled.
Thank God for today!!
Rivera really needs to do something about this dead-ball stuff. It cost them in playoff game.
Interesting exchange between Davis and Norman.
BREAKING: Panthers cross imaginary yellow line signifying more chances to play offense.
I need to update my country playlist before I start traveling like crazy! What are your favorite songs right now?
Federer 2 points from being bageled in a set by Ferrer.
Trying to make it on my flight out of LAX but I've seen shorter lines at Cedar Point on a sunny Saturday afternoon!
Was asked my next 3 favorite films: FWIW -- A Time to Kill, All the President's Men, Citizen Kane.
Three movies you can't pass up? Mine are Godfather, Casino and Pulp Fiction...
"I'm going to get Medieval..." has to be one of the great lines in film history. Watching Pulp Fiction on VHI.
Good morning! Without dreams, we reach nothing, without love, we feel nothing, without God, we are nothing! Enjoy your day
Awkward....I have one sunburnt spot on the middle of my back because apparently I'm not flexible enough to reach that area with sunscreen.
Running on the beach, listening to Christian music, and getting a tan (we all know I need it)!!!! Life couldn't be better!!!
My point. This doesn't matter.
If national TV mattered, Spurs would be out of the league. Also Knicks and Lakers were on TV all the time. What was that worth?
There was a bunch of "no respect" anger from Hornets fans tonight about 2 national TV appearances. Some thoughts (more)...
Bobcats never beat the Heat with LeBron.
Would've been interesting to view Hornets' reaction to 1 LeBron visit to Charlotte. Guessing coaches cheered, business side winced.
Hornets have only 4 home games in February. That's about longer All-Star Break (9 days off) and CIAA Tournament dates.
Obviously the Hornets will need to start fast, based on schedule: 18 of 41 home dates before Jan. 1.
Hornets play only 3 games against LeBron/Cavs. Good for Steve Clifford, but only 1 visit to Charlotte Jan. 2.
Hornets will always have lots of back-to-backs because they request so many home games for Friday and Saturday.
Hornets play 22 sets of games on back-to-back nights.
With new, extended All-Star Break, Hornets won't play from Feb. 9 through Feb. 20.
Hornets have no TNT games. Two on ESPN: Home vs. Raptors April 8, at Raptors April 15. 2nd game is end of season so subject to change.
Stephen Curry and the Warriors are in Charlotte Nov. 28. Both Warriors games in November.
Hornets play four of their first six at home before heading west.
Does not appear Hornets have any TNT appearances.
November road trip for Hornets -- Lakers, Blazers, Suns and Warriors.
Hornets also host the Memphis Grizzlies Nov. 1
Can confirm Hornets regular-season opener is at home Oct. 29 versus the Milwaukee Bucks.
Toughest decision of the day: Santa Monica, El Segundo, Manhattan, or Hermosa
