Game Day Pictures: Braves vs Blue Jays 6-8-12, John Smoltz #29 retirement

New Braves Hall of Famer Smoltzie on his way to throw out the ceremonial first pitch Alison and I bought tickets to the Blue Jays series before the season started.

Today that means batting practice, then Smoltzie...

John Smoltz: Baseball legend, TV Analyst and attempted weather dude

Yeah, it's as goofy as you'd think that it would be. But it is an athlete, albeit a now former one trying to do what people at the Weather Channel do for a living; forecast the weather.

John Smoltz might be a Hall of Fame pitcher, but his skills don't apparently translate very well to go-kart racing.

We're guessing...
