Some kid just out of college managed to get nationally published what he thinks are the ten greatest ever MLB uniforms. Not many share his opinion, though I like his choice for number one.

7. Arizona Diamondbacks purple & teal home uni 2001-2006
6. Montreal Expos road uni 1995-2004
5. Detroit Tigers road uni 1998-present
4. Pirates We are Family yellow jersey w/pillbox cap 77-84 & 16-19
3. St Louis Cardinals powder blue uni 1976-1984 & 2019
2. New York Yankees home pinstripe uni 1936-present.
1. Atlanta Braves road uni 1976-1979
Kalamazoo is changing their minor league team name from the Growlers to the Mac Daddies.
The downtown Atlanta Chickfila next to the College Football Hall of Fame sustained damage on Friday night, but on Saturday employees were outside handing out free CFA sandwiches. The HOF had a large group of volunteers helping clean up.
Friday night W&MC were in Cartersville but drove home late. W had to work on Saturday and Sunday. Anna was in Savannah & Tybee Island this weekend and didn't get back to Athens until around 9 pm last night. I heard the protests in Athens were relatively peaceful.
"Whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets" (Matthew 7:12). Denison: this one maxim provides a way forward through the scourge of racism and violence in our day.
When asked what was the greatest commandment, Jesus answered in Luke 10:27: "You are to love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself."
Many reports of the most violent rioters in many large cities had been bussed in / flown in from out of town. Rioters in Atlanta didn't know how to get to the state capitol until "leaders" directed them. In Dallas leaders directed rioted to where stacks of bricks had been brought in for use by the rioters. Who organized all this?
Friday on the way home from work I stopped by Kroger for supplies. Had to return to Kroger yesterday after church for more. Ate too much all weekend but this morning I weighed my lowest all year.
Friday night I ate frozen pizza. Not bad. Later ice cream for dessert. Continued to watch more of the Tiger/Phil match, The Last Dance, and Being Erica – a show that seemed to start out okay but got worse in season two, when they must've started to run out of original ideas.
Saturday I cleaned upstairs then came downstairs. Watched my shows, cut the grass, watered the plants. Ate turkey quesadillas and ice cream. Also watched Who Wants to be a Millionaire and the Space X launch.
Sunday School, Kroger, frozen pizza, ice cream. Finished up The Last Dance and The Match. Watched the movie The Private Lives of Pippa Lee. Laundry and more watering. Turkey quesadillas for supper. Went to bed early but had a headache.
Last night 7:00 hr sleep 4:24 quality.
Sat night 8:23 hr 6:16 quality 2:05 deep
Fri night 6:30 hr 4:35 quality 1:21 deep
Thursday night 6:20 total 4:09 quality
Wed night 6:22 total 3:47 quality
Tues night 6:07 total 4:26 quality
This morning M returned to work on the farm down on the Westside. Left here around 7 am. Worked all weekend at Whole Foods. Yesterday he had to be at work at 6 am.  He's working 12 straight days. Ceil wasn't able to come home until today.
Sounds like Passion City Church may have reopened yesterday. JFBC had deacons attend tests services yesterday, and will reopen next week. . Our Sunday School is making plans to reopen but many are involved in helping out in the services. Ceil and I are not ready to go back.
Major league players who hit for the cycle in 2009. No single season in the expansion has seen more.
1933 also saw 8 cycles recorded—5 of them by Hall of Famers!

Trying to justify using Amazon gift cards to buy these sneakers to wear to work. Saw them in a GQ email: adidas SC Premier. They're currently discounted on Amazon. Nice, but you'd think I'd be able to find some slightly better-looking.

Today I wore my old Reebok Zigs for the first time in ages.
