i have a baseball in each of two cupholders in my car (so that they don't roll around)...

(they are major league baseballs and i wasn't leaving without them).

[/ QUOTE ]

I dont think enough attention has been paid to these comments. I understand having the baseballs in the cup holder so they dont roll around, but who the heck drives around with major league baseballs in their front seat? I played ball all through high school and little in college (over 18 team, not at Michgan), and I'm pretty sure that I wouldnt have a baseball in the front seat of my car (even when I was stretching my pitching fingers for a better splitter). Inquiring minds want to know.

its my offseason and i long-toss 5 days a week (the other two are my bullpens) so i keep two baseballs in my car for when i play catch and i drive to go and throw so make sure i have baseballs in my car.

i understand your question and why it sounds weird though.

mmbt,

In all seriousness, that was one of the craziest episodes I ever witnessed. It was like an entire city block of cars and people were all just sitting there watching, stunned.

[/ QUOTE ]

that reminds me of a video I saw posted on here once, I think it was from vegas, where this cracked out pimp just literally destroys this car sitting at a red light with a baseball bat, the person was pinned in behind traffic and couldnt do anything but sit there. I searched for it but to no avail [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

asofel,

Back when that happened ('96 maybe), Buckhead was mainly a white fratboy type hangout area and stuff like this was definitely WAY out of the ordinary.

[/ QUOTE ]

I was there late 96 - 97 and then again in 2000 and there was a huge change. But also I remember during 96-97 that Friday night was a much softer, preppier and frankly white looking crowd but that Saturday nights brought a much harder,gangster oriented crowd that basically scared the [censored] out of me whenever I was there.

In 2000 it was much much worse, to the point I really made sure not to be out in the streets as much as possible.

first your post is legitimate and so i will respond.

i didn't tap on the breaks b/c he was so close that tapping the breaks would surely cause an accident...i mean him just switching lanes hit my car, why do you think breaking would be optimal?

out of my three choices:

increasing speed- he is in the wrong so why adhere to him and help him out? i am already speeding so why go even faster? what if i pass a cop going 60?

tap the breaks- this will cause a wreck, he is too close.

stay the course- if there is a wreck its caused by him and i will stay passive as to try and keep this situation as safe as possible.

i think this was correct IMO.

Throwing two baseballs in retaliation is unbelievably stupid and reckless.

[/ QUOTE ]
maybe, especially if he pulls out a gun. sometimes we do outlandish things when we snap but sometimes people need their [censored] neck broken too, there is a gray area and i am still not sure where today fits but i know that you can't make a habit of doing these things and if i weren't in an area in plano, texas (even though he acted like trash) where the average home is over 1 million dollars then i might not have done something like this. i know thats not proper justification because a guy can retaliate anywhere but i am just telling you my thoughts at the time is all.
