    Nashville, as MLB Expansion Market

    Not to mention if he's from the bay area he's probably a Giants fan if he's a fan of anyone. To make the bay area a one team Metro; despite what experts say I think San Fransisco, San Jose and Oakland is the same dang town. It becomes a possible win/win for him and a big win for us! I'd take the A's any day over the Rays or an expansion team. The A's have a rich history and them to town would be enough for me to disown my Tigers. I'm not sure the Rays or an expansion team would make me abandon my life long team like the A's would. Heck I would have probably dropped the Cowboys had the Oilers named them selves NASHVILLE rather than TENNESSEE... Who can root for a football team named Tennessee?

    Nashville, as MLB Expansion Market

    I was googling about "MLB to Nashville" and seen that John Loar is from the Bay area. I would love to still the A's from Oakland with there storied history over getting an expansion team with no history. Him being from the Bay area I wonder if he has been in contact with the A's franchise about a possible relocation with the struggles they've had in Oakland?

    Nashville Bits and Pieces

    I've noticed that in the area but haven't said anything. When visiting my brother in M'boro (who lives in a nice neighborhood) there are very few nicely manicured lawns. Must be the use of fescue there and I feel it's too far south for Kentucky Blue Grass. Bermuda grows as a weed here in Huntsville so all you have to do is weed control and little shade to have a nice Bermuda lawn. Zoysia does well (which I sodded in at my old house) and Centipede also does well. Sorry if my reply was boring to most.

    Puerto Rico as 51st state

    Just San Juan. I knew most the... (I wanted to say the state) was desolate but so is a lot of other states outside there capital. Some States capitals aren't far from desolate. From what I gather the population that wants independence is less than 10%. Much like Texas or any red state.

    Puerto Rico as 51st state

    I like that too as long as Puerto Rico gets there star. Politics aside; I know there's a lot out of people out there (especially the media) that loves to bash Trump any and every chance they get. Yes I'm a Trump supporter and was a registered democrat in Tn but would vote Trump again today. There was a headline that read "Puerto Rico 51st state; Trump said NO WAY." It's your typical click bate bull crap he didn't say. he said "Now is not the best time." The article was dated back in late September and he knew the battle he'd have now to pass a Budget. It's my opinion "It's not the best time" means he's working on Congress to finally do there jobs for the first time in a decade to pass a freaking budget... then lets work Puerto Rico into a state by 2021. Democrats and Republican before Trump has wanted a wall at the Mexican boarder; Trump is saying "GET IT DONE!" Puerto Rico as a state (just like the wall) has always been bipartisan.

    Thanks; great blast from the past and great update there! Smith Gee Studio does not ring a bell. Any chance they were called something else then? They had a small studio on the third or fourth floor of Cummins Station in about 2000-2003 time period.

    Personally I like the bottom design best.

    Puerto Rico as 51st state

    Like I mentioned in a different thread I'm furloughed and bored but I just got back from San Juan last week and was very impressed with the city and the "STATE" of Puerto Rice. Yes you can still see the damage from Hurricane Maria. I thought the hold up for Puerto Rico to join the union was on their end but recently with some googling and resource the holdup is now on our end. What do y'all think about Puerto Rico joining the Union? I thought the Coffee Shop would be the better place for this and y'all are the better crowd to ask than football or car guys; I think there is politicians and big-to-do folks on this site which leads me to think so. I'm a new found republican and I know I'm not the only one. I can tell in your post who affiliates with who and the Democrats are the majority here. I feel this is a bipartisan discussion though but maybe I'm wrong. They've been hitting Congress for over a year now for Statehood yet our Congress that has not done there jobs in over a decade and can't pass a budget in that same amount of time doesn't do jack. Puerto Ricans feel like second rate American citizens (they're as much an American as this Tennessee born and raised white boy that's typing this in my opinion) and the more I read the more I agree with them. They get no vote and only what is dealt to them and in a lot of respects they don't get dealt a fair hand. They are using the Tennessee Plan right now for Statehood; bittersweet to me since we're Tennessean's here. Read your history but a lot of Tennesseans fought against the English in our war for Independence but they had no vote and forced there way into statehood. To me this is blacks not getting a vote during "Poll Tax" Jim Crow Law days or Women not getting there voices heard. Am I wrong to back there cause? I'm not trying to be "Politically Correct;" it's just my opinion. Give me your opinion. Btw; don't grade me on grammar or I'll give you a math exam.

    Back then the architecture firms we did a lot of work for was in the Cummins Station, Earl Swanson in the Lowes building, there was another firm in an old Church build in Sobro and a one stop shop in Nashville City Center. Just thinking about my ICT days. Maybe y'all can connect the dots and help me remember who was who?

    I can't wait for the two floor addition to Cummins. About fifteen years ago I used to go to an Architecture firm based in Atlanta there. Now I can't remember the name of the firm and don't have a clue if they are still there. I love that building.

    More Accolades for Nashville

    Especially not in the last twelve years and no time soon. Take your shots where and when you can! I'll say I'm more impressed with the education my kids are receiving here in Madison, Al (my sixth grader is learning German; I didn't start that till the tenth) than my Tn education. Sorry I'm just saying... Although I'm sure Williamson County education is leap years ahead of Lawrence County.

    Nashville Bits and Pieces

    This is the south; we all here struggle with English. Technically the Braves have nine on the field, Falcons have eleven and Hawks have five. It should be plural.

    Satalac; I love your post's. Your funny but not this one... Actually it's still funny! Even though I gave you a down vote it's still funny. No harm no foul.

    Nashville Bits and Pieces

    That's why I hate all things Atlanta. I will say though GT was a power house in football only rivaled in the south by Bama before they left the SEC; true story. I hate the Brave's (Hate, hate and hate again), Falcon's, Hawk's or whatever team they have. They try to shove there product down the whole South's throat. "The capital of the South," "Your local team" or "The team of the South" and now something like this. They're four freaking hour's away... that's not local...?
