 The city of Chattanooga, facing a possible Georgia land grab as part of an effort to get access to the Tennessee River, is sending a truck load of bottled water to Atlanta. [Link]

Georgia?  Let’s settle this on the Gridiron.  Or maybe not, Tennessee has a decided advantage…..[Link] . While North Georgia residents can’t even wash their cars because of the drought, just across the line in Tennessee, a small town is building a new water park. Take that, Gov. Sonny “Pray For Rain” Perdue. As if Georgia residents actually wash their cars.

Tennessee State Senator Berke, however, contemplated a less-serious resolution to the dispute:

“I would offer to settle this over a friendly game of football, but that would be unfair to the state of Georgia.”

The proposal elicited instant ridicule from residents of the area on Thursday, as well as tongue-in-cheek saber rattling from Tennessee lawmakers.

One state senator offered to settle the issue with a football game. Another suggested floating an armada of University of Tennessee fans down the Tennessee River to defend the state’s territory.

Yet another piece of evidence that Tennessee is superior to Georgia.

Georgia history does not have a statesman like Andrew Jackson, a Medal of Honor winner like Alvin York nor a rassler like Jackie Fargo.

They do have fame as the setting for the movie “Deliverance”. GATA, literally!!!

    #1 - You were watching studio wrestling back in the 70's, weren't you? Banana Nose Lance Russell would be proud.

    I grew up watching Jerry Lawler getting his ass doubled teamed by Austin Idol and Tommy "Wildfire" Rich. Then of course the following week he would shoot a fireball at one of them. Classic...

    #4 - Once Lawler pulled that strap down you knew it was your ass. I went to the coliseum on many a Monday night when I was a kid.

    I posted at your site BTW - the Salisbury firing. Good article.

    @4 Who was that comedian that dissed pro wrestling as bogus, Lawler challenged what he said, the dope agreed to get in the ring with Lawler, who immediately did some sort of head drop with the guy, putting him in the hospital?

    Man I love this conversation. I too frequented Mid_south Coliseum on Monday evenings in the summer and watched religously on Sat. mornings. Here are some more blasts from the past: Dirty Dutch Mantel, Dr. Ken Ramey and the Interns, Rock 'N Roll Express, Kimala, Jackey Fargo, Nick Goulas and on and on.

    If Thomas wouldn't kick my ass for writing about Memphis wrestling, I would post about it. Great memories. You know, I might just do it anyway and just deal with it...

    Back to the original post, I have been in Atlanta the past few days and hearing people bitch and moan that they can't wash their cars or refill their pools is about as nerve racking as all the bones and Bulldog crap. Just to liven things up at the office that I am in, I put a Tennessee hat on top of this guy's Bulldog beanie baby and a half empty water bottle next to it. When he gets back in, I'll be on a plane out of here...

    #9 - LOL! So let me understand something. The drought is so bad in Georgia they don't enough water to do what? Wash their asses? Cook food? The occasional 8 oz. glass? Other than those things, what do they need our water for?

    Here's some more wrestling names from the past. Stunning Steve Austin, The Iranian Stomper, Joe Leduc (think that's how it was spelled) and Plowboy Frazier.

    Apparently they just can't use a whole hell of a lot of water for unnecessary things, like washing cars and that sort of thing. I don't know the exact details, except one guy at work bitching that (and I am not making this up) he might not be able to blow up his 5,000 gallon above ground pool this year and how his kids may have to swim at the "big ole YMCA pool". Yup, I ain't in Kansas, at least for another day...
