Dude, I realize that you are usually just trying to be helpful and pass on some sports tidbits that you may have picked up in the newspaper and then other times, you are just trying to be funny. But the area code does not have anything to do with it.

That’s the stupidest thing you’ve said, lately.

Ashford will make one helluva wide receiver or cornerback. Don't you agree?

I am intrigued by Arnett.  His defenses have been pretty stout, especially for a 3-3-5 setup.
Gonna be interesting to see which DB coach among the dozen or so rises above the others.

Is he fast enough to throw to himself downfield?

Will be interesting to see how much he can improve in all seriousness. If he doesn’t have it in year 2, then having him in the slot would be pretty cool.

I remember Bill Brasky throwing the winning touchdown pass to himself in the playoffs.

hell, there’s no doubt. And I knew all along that if you were still alive that you’d be advocating his move to cornerback. In all seriousness, this time especially, I think you are spot on with this move.

 Not a natural qb but Hue may make him into one.

Kid is one hell of an athlete.

He reminds me a lot of myself.

Why do I find myself being a believer?  Weren't you the one that started the fad of chasing & catching squirrels that Tre Mason later popularized?

Bill Brasky hit .455 as an centerfielder before he broke his hip jumping off that streetcar in Birmingham... the drunken bastard.

Yes. But only for a short time. We had bought a small place on the river and a party line was the cheapest you could get. So you had to check to see if anyone was on the phone before you made a call. It was a little weird.
Yes.
Yes.

Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Yes.

Party Line: Moved to a really small town back in about 1993.  I didn't have a party line, but a lot of the people there still did and it was definitely weird.

Collect Calls: Used mostly for check-ins.  We all had our own codes so we could let parents and grandparents know we'd arrived somewhere or that we were coming without being forced to incur the hateful long distance rates. 
"Hi this is a collect call for Robert Doubleday (double meant two or Tuesday)."
I'm sorry, Mr. Doubleday isn't available at the moment but I expect him back later
Okay operator, please tell them we'll call back about 8:30.
BAM--- They knew we'd be there Tuesday about 8:30.

Long Distance:  The charges were outrageous.  God help you if your girlfriend was gone to Michigan for two weeks and you promised you'd call her every night "after the rates went down."  I had a friend who had this weird habit of breaking into houses, calling foreign countries (quadruple long distance!) and leaving the phone off the hook.  He never got caught.  I was happier just calling local numbers and asking if they had Aunt Jemimah in a 16 oz bottle and then telling them they better let her out before she suffocated.  *69 killed that. 

Sidebar, your honor?
I found it inconsistent that the only time there was ever anybody else on the party line on Andy Griffith was the time that guy was in a hurry to get his car fixed. The rest of the time they picked up and got connected.

Never trust anyone that has never experienced a party line.

I do not want to party with them.

And, invariably, there is one family that tries to see how long that they can stay on the phone. They paid 8 bucks a month for that phone and they were damn well going to get their moneys worth.
