Know Your Braves: David Ross

Video link!

Poor guy. I've had that job, where all you do all day is pull staples out of paper. Loved the interview, though!

Next week... BMac's definitely going to be working the shy blonde teddy bear thing, isn't he?

They have the "embed" feature back for Ross' video. Not sure why they took it off for Moylan's last week. :\

Ross is quite the character without looking like a character. Kind of Ohman-esque in a way, only Ohman just looked like he was up to no good all the time and probably was, lol.

And I agree with the teddy bear thing with Mac. They did the same thing to him in Straight Up, lol. I know that he can be really competitive and get really mad at times (as we've seen), but sometimes it's just hard for me to believe that he ever gets mad. But then I see him actually get mad and there goes that assessment, lol.

Yeah, I saw the embed feature. The problem is that Blogger allows a maximum of 400px in width for a picture or video, and even though I change the AJC's embed code proportionally, it still doesn't shrink the vid. It worked okay on the last few guys, because they were centered on camera and the 20% on our right was cut off. However, it wouldn't work when Rossy is set up on the right side of the frame -- he'd be mostly cut off.

So it's not that I didn't see the available code; it's that it wouldn't work with the current blog format and where they had Ross sitting for the interview.

I think we have the most adorable catcher duo in baseball. :)

Ok, no sound so I'll have to wait to comment on Ross's rapping skills, but how cute is he? Jen is right- most adorable catcher duo in the league!

And for maybe the first time ever I can skip the weekend and go right to next tuesday ;)
Of course Mac is working the shy blonde teddy bear thing! It totally works for him!!
(I must confess I only watched the video now so I could see the end...y'all know I love me some shy blonde teddy bear :D)

I love BMac! Can't wait to see his vid next week!! Rossy is so much fun too. He does remind me a lot of Will Ohman. My dad and I kept saying last year that they needed to team up Ohman and Smoltzie to be mic'd up for a game. That would have been hysterical! I miss both of them so much!!! :'(

Leah said...

Oh ok, that's a good reason. ;)

Hmmm..just saw this new promotion linked on TalkingChop.com called "Shopping with the Braves". Gonzo, Norton, & Schafer will be doing it Friday. Other players will apparently do it on the other dates listed. If was in Atlanta, I would probably go to it.

Roman Gal said...

I'm gonna have to echo Jen's sentiment's, we definitely have the cutest catching duo.

Leah, I'm gonna hopefully go to that! I really want to!

Leah said...

Roman Gal, if you get any pictures, please do share. :)

Jen said...

Thanks for that link, Leah. I may have to pick up a Publix sandwich for lunch on Friday. ;)

Roman Gal said...

Yesss...My best girlfriend and I are going for sure! Leah, I'll take lots of good pictures.

Lauren T. said...

I love that you girls are commenting so much. It makes blogging more fun!

I'll probably hold out on going to Publix until guys I like a little more are there. That Publix is about 20 minutes from my office, so not convenient! :D

CABravesFan said...

Guys you like a little more? Ahem, GONZO(if not for you, do it for me and the rest of us that can't be there!)

CABravesFan said...

I know, I know, but I want to live vicariously through you :)

Leah said...

I wish they would tell you who was going ahead of time. I'm sure they will somehow. Although, not that it would matter, because I probably won't make it to any of them.

The wives have suite? I know some of them sit behind home plate during most games because my friends have seen some of them there a lot of games. Hmm. But nonetheless, good pictures are always find with me. ;)

Ah, a whole video of Baby being all cute & bashful & sweet. I can't wait. Where do I lobby for the feature-length version?

CABravesFan said...

flbravesgirl-

where ever that is, let me know & I'll be right there with you :)

How cute was he turning flame red??

Roman Gal said...

Well, I love Jordan Schafer. I met him at my first-ever Rome Braves game and he was so nice! I've loved him ever since!
