Close Call

Mike Hampton was invited to go to Daytona yesterday:

Hampton has been in friend Jimmie Johnson's pit area at previous Daytona 500 races, and was offered a helicopter ride to the race Sunday. But the 35-year-old left-hander said he declined because he had to be in meetings with lawyers and financial planners.

Can you imagine what would happen to Mike Hampton in a helicopter? I bet Mac Thomason can.

Update: Yep, he can!

C, does this excite you ( in the sense that you're a Braves fan & none other ) ?

From Rotowire yesterday:

Hampton (elbow, hamstring) threw batting practice for the second time in three days on Sunday and ran without discomfort on Saturday, the team's official web site reports.

As a Braves fan I have learned not to let any Mike Hampton news affect me unless it involves him willingly walking away from the remainder of his contract.

He will get hurt. I would bet my children on it.

Well, now I'm going to have to buy a toy helicopter.
