David Hale Bids Bulldog Nation Farewell


Even I thought this posting was a little long-winded, by the way. All of us here at Dawg Sports wish David and his new bride well as they embark upon their life together. Don't be a stranger, David . . . and thanks for being a fine beat reporter and a good friend to the blogosphere. Go 'Dawgs!

David Hale is a Good Sport


Here's his take on my theory that he is a jinx. All in fun, David. Best of luck to you. Go 'Dawgs!



Most of you probably know this already, but David Hale is leaving. Vaya con Dios, David. You will be missed. Go 'Dawgs!

Defense Wins Championships


We knew that already, of course, but it's always nice to have it confirmed one more time. Go 'Dawgs!

David Hale Attempts to Take Weekend Off; Oconee River Turns to Blood as Frogs Overrun Athens


Historically, this has approximately as large a jinxing effect off the field as my confidence has on the field. Seriously, if you ever wake up on a Friday morning, read where David has written that he's going to Cancun for the weekend, and read where I have written that I'm absolutely confident of a Georgia victory that same weekend, expect the Bulldogs to lose by 50 and for every member of the team to get arrested on the way out of the stadium. Bulldog Nation needs to load me up with downers and put David to work in a sweatshop. It's the only way Georgia will go back to being good at anything ever again. Go 'Dawgs! . . . and Stay David!

And the Hits Just Keep On Coming . . .


While you were waiting for the other shoe to drop on the taxi cab incident, this happened. When it rains, it pours. Go 'Dawgs!

Darn You, David Hale! Darn You and Your Optimism!


David Hale, like Rod Stewart before him, is looking to find a reason to believe, and he has come up with several. In the interests of equal time, I feel obligated to provide links to postings written by folks who believe that maybe, just maybe, it is possible that a Georgia sports team will not lose every game between now and the end of time. What I find maddening about this report, though, is the news of how big an impact Scott Lakatos is having on the Bulldog secondary. Don't get me wrong; I'm glad he appears to be doing his job so well, but, for crying out loud, when the players are marveling at the introduction of stuff I've spent the last three years shouting from my seat in the alumni section, it just proves that Willie Martinez should've been fired the day after the 2005 Auburn game! Go 'Dawgs!

This is Why David Hale is a Great Beat Reporter


Well played. I particularly liked the way he italicized the first letter of each paragraph to spell out his message. (I once did something similar with regard to a girl I went out with who had six letters in her first name, six letters in her middle name, and six letters in her last name; I wrote a poem in three stanzas with six lines per stanza and started each line with a letter of her name, so that it spelled out her name down the left-hand side of the page. I should've noticed the significance of her having six letters in each of her three names, but I didn't recognize it until it was too late.) But I digress. Good stuff from David Hale. Go 'Dawgs!
