Fredi, Uggla, and the Zombie Apocalypse

  Having dropped Directv about 2 years ago, my wife and I had not been watching much television. Let's face it- network tv sucks, so we were left with very little choice for our viewing pleasure. But last fall, we started taking advantage of our Netflix account.

  One of the shows we started watching and really enjoyed was the first season of AMC's The Walking Dead. We (especially my wife) are suckers for B-Rate horror movies and shows such as this one, so we were thrilled that Netflix carried the show. Unfortunately, the first series only consisted of six episodes-which we watched in probably three days. The second season had barely begun by the time we finished that first season, and ran until mid-March. So from around November until now we have been stuck somewhere between the real world and the zombie apocalypse. The good news is that the DVD for season 2 goes on sale this week, bringing hope to those of us who depend upon Netflix for such series.

  A wikipedia search for the series revealed that Series 3 is set to begin airing on October 14th-right in the middle of MLB's postseason.


Dan Uggla has been horrible this year. Take away the stretch of 33 games last season in which he had an Atlanta record 33 game hitting streak while hitting 15 homers, and he's been horrible for two seasons. At the plate, Uggla is like a zombie-just going through the motions.

 And despite Ugg's struggles, manager Fredi Gonzalez has continued penciling Dan's name in the lineup. It has made me wonder if Fredi wouldn't somehow survive the zombie apocalypse.
