Charlie Morton's First MLB Hit (08/07/08)

Here's a few clips and links to Charlie's first hit. Charlie got his first MLB hit, a double, against the Arizona Dimondbacks on August 7, 2008 as an Atlanta Brave.

I'd been looking for the clip and found it on a site called Brave's Love . The clip and post-game interview are below, thanks again to Lauren for the comment on her blog! Sorry CM, couldn't edit out the subsequent pick...

Post-game Interview

Speculation on Fire Hydrants, Airbags and the #1 Golfer in the World




Lots of stuff out there about Wood's "car accident." I'll let you do your own Google searching, but it doesn't look good. But the bigger question is possibly, why are you surprised? I've always been skeptical of things that look a little too perfect since we all know people who constantly try to show us how great their lives are. Be very skeptical of those who tell you their family is perfect, etc. the truth is usually inversely correlated.

This is why I'd always prefer a beer with Phil. I hope America can handle another hero who is about to fall and be exposed. All that money and fame is so intoxicating to those who are shallow, because it's all about "how things look" rather than the hard work it takes to create something that's real. I couldn't care less, I know this sort of thing happens every day somewhere, but c'mon, you've got kids. Disrespect each other, fine, you're adults, but when kids are involved, it just seems a bit more sinister and narcissistic.

Look more closely, connect the dots, and ask yourself, do you really think an air bag would deploy if you hit a fire hydrant at 10-20 mph? Give me a break. That's what you get from a guy who probably worships Jordan now that his dad has passed. Maybe we'll see Tiger on Oprah soon asking the world for forgiveness, since so many people look to Oprah for inspiration.

Should be interesting, I know, I know, innocent until proven guilty. I'm sure he was just in a hurry to get to the driving range at 2:30 AM.
